LeBron James and the rest of the Big Three seemed winded by the last quarter of Game 3. Their bodies and minds certainly could have used more time to recover.

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

When the NBA Conference Finals ended, both Spurs and Heat had time to recover. However, the San Antonio Spurs' quick win allowed them double the rest time that Miami Heat had. With just a glance at the score table at NBA.com the inevitable conclusion is that the recovery time has never played a more crucial role. According to Dr. Armin Tehrany, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in Manhattan, New York, the longer recovery time turned in Spur's favor as they now have two wins in first three games of the NBA Finals. After Miami’s Game 3 collapse, 113 to 77, the chances the Spurs win their fifth title are quite realistic.

With seven days until the NBA finals, the Spurs had a valuable opportunity to rest and recover, analyze their performance and learn from their mistakes. Their Game 1 win was somewhat an expected result, knowing that Miami had only three days to rest and prepare for the pressure of finals.

"LeBron James and the rest of the Big Three seemed winded by the last quarter of Game 3. Their bodies and minds certainly could have used more time to recover," says Dr. Armin Tehrany.

Earlier, Miami Heat were concerned by the injured Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, who both played crucial roles in tough beating of the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals. During the NBA finals Game 2, the Miami Heat took over the control and won impressively. Despite their exhaustion and injuries, this win was strong motivation to regain the NBA Championship title, said Dr. Tehrany.

“After Dwayne Wade re-injured his knee jumping over another player in Game 2, he stayed out for most of the game. Hopefully, he'll be better for the next games and not need a cortisone or PRP injection," concludes Dr. Tehrany.

The Miami Heat are older and with less recovery time than San Antonio Spurs, but with age comes experience which can play a leading role in the next games. Miami are after all the reigning Champions.
