MIAMI (AFP) - The San Antonio Spurs can move within one win of their fifth NBA title with a victory over reigning champions Miami in Game Four of the NBA Finals tomorrow morning (Singapore time).

San Antonio handed the Heat their first home loss of the play-offs, shooting a stunning 76 per cent in the first half to win Game Three 111-92 and take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven championship series.

The Spurs are the first team since 1989 to return to the finals after losing Game Seven in the finals the year before.

Their bruised egos simply will not let them forget last year's seventh-game loss to the Heat.
