"Hopefully with two titles, he'll get more benefit of the doubt," said teammate Shane Battier of James, who's been a polarizing figure in the league ever since his televised, cringe-inducing "Decision" in 2010 to leave Cleveland and sign with the Heat. Wall Street Journal

Battier then rediscovered his stroke at a most opportune time. After going 3 of 15 from behind the arc through the Finals’ first five games, he nailed 3 of 4 in Miami’s 103-100 Game 6 triumph in overtime. “The basketball gods — I believe in basketball gods — I felt they owed me big time,” Battier said. “I had a bunch of shots in San Antonio that went in and out.” FOXSports Florida

James had 33 points and 11 rebounds, Wade had 32 points, six steals, six rebounds and four assists and Bosh had 20 points and 13 rebounds in Miami's 109-93 victory against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, tying the best-of-seven series at 2. "Tonight was a Big 3 night. It just was," Heat reserve forward Shane Battier told USA TODAY Sports. "We all knew it on the bench. It was their night. When we have success, they receive a lion's share of the credit, and deservedly so. But when we have failure, they take a lot of the criticism as well. "They knew they were going to play better, and they just made it happen." USA Today Sports
