Life is grand for the San Antonio Spurs, but not so much for the Miami Heat.

And not just because the Heat trail the NBA Finals 1-0, heading into Game 2 n Sunday.

The Spurs are thrilled to be back at the Finals after years away, while many Miami players are acting like they just want to get the grind over with.

A few things on that point: Miami has been here three straight years and there was an Olympics in between for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — and Wade and Bosh are battling injuries. Nobody has played more minutes than James over the past seven years or so. It makes sense that this feels like a bit of a slog to them.
