According to several sports sites as of June 4, 2011, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is in no doubt that his team would rebound in Game Three after Thursday’s intense 95-93 defeat to Dallas Mavericks in Game Two of the NBA Finals, leaving the best-of-seven series tied at 1-1.

Several reports reveal that, through two games, as the best-of-seven series shifts to Dallas for Sunday’s Game 3, the Heat had indeed attempted a total of 54 3-pointers, compared with 50 free throws.  Apparently, in an unexpected turnaround, the Heat eventually shot far more 3-pointers and slightly fewer free throws compared to the Mavericks.

Related report quoted Erik Spoelstra saying, “That hasn’t been a successful formula.”

“We’re an attacking team. We’re a free-throw-shooting team. The 3-point ball is a weapon for us. It’s a necessary weapon. It has to happen within the context of establishing our game first. We do need to be aggressive. We do need to be an attack team. Our guys understand that. We will be better with that,” he further adds.
