NBA Finals 2013: Heat's Mike Miller may start Game 4 vs. Spurs


Mike Miller has been lights out for the Miami Heat from beyond the arc thus far in the NBA Finals.

The Miami Heat might turn to starting Mike Miller to provide a spark in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night, ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports. There hasn't been any official indication from Heat officials, but not divulging that sort of information isn't rare when it comes to games of this importance.

Miller -- who had a couple of nice games with the Heat in last year's championship run -- hasn't been able to consistently stay healthy enough for the Heat to rely on him for offense. With Miami's offense struggling, however, the Heat might add the South Dakota native to their starting lineup. From Windhorst:

Looking to jump-start a sluggish offense, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is considering changing his starting lineup for Game 4 of the NBA Finals and inserting the hot-shooting Mike Miller, sources said Thursday.

Miller has made eight consecutive shots from beyond the arc and has made 10-of-11 total thus far in the Finals. Combine that with Udonis Haslem struggling to get anything going for a sometimes-stagnant Miami offense and it seems as though the Heat will employ quite a bit more firepower in Game 4 of the seven-game series.
