Wade finds touch when Heat needed it most

Posted:
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- -

The biggest adjustment for Dwyane Wade came hours before Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

It was when Miami coach Erik Spoelstra made the decision to start Mike Miller over Udonis Haslem, with the thinking that it would help thwart San Antonio's defensive schemes against LeBron James.

Instead, it served as a time machine of sorts for Wade -- who found his form again, on a night when the Heat absolutely needed it most.

The Finals are now a best-of-three series that will be decided next week in Miami, thanks largely to Wade, who came up with his best game in months to carry the Heat in Game 4 on Thursday night. He had 32 points,six rebounds, six steals and four assists, and the Heat shook off an early 10-point deficit to beat the Spurs 109-93 on Thursday night.

The series is knotted at two games apiece, with Game 5 in San Antonio on Sunday.
