You can see it in their demeanour and hear it in their voices — the Miami Heat recognize the reality of the situation they have put themselves in.

Barring a miracle — or a series of them, really — the Heat’s championship run will be halted at two by the impressive Spurs.

And the Heat seem to recognize that.

Instead of being surly, determined, convincing, most of them looked content, resigned to their fate, though hoping for the best after arriving back in Texas on Saturday.

“Today is a new day. I have another opportunity to help this team keep our season going,” said LeBron James. “But I also know that — I don’t know, I’m in a good place in my life. It’s basketball. I understand it’s the media and the sport is the greatest sport in the world. I love it. It’s done so many great things for me, but it’s just basketball. It’s just basketball.”

Ray Allen said the same thing to a smaller group of us. “It’s just basketball.”
