FOX Sports has the latest on the upcoming Cleveland-Miami series.
Here are five things to know heading into Game 4: Who will win the series: With the Heat up three games to none, LeBron James will be looking to continue his historic playoff run by winning the series in Cleveland.
But, with a chance to go all the way, the Cavaliers could clinch the title with a win or two, as they have the chance to end James’ eight-game winning streak against the Heat in Cleveland on Friday night.
This is a chance for James to take his streak of consecutive games with at least 30 points to eight games with a team-high 22, which would be his second consecutive game with 22 points or more.
LeBron James is averaging 29.3 points, 10.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game for the Cavs.
But the Cavaliers have been plagued by poor shooting the last two games, shooting 41.7 percent (16 of 29) from the field, compared to 39.5 percent (12 of 31) in the series.
The Cavaliers shot 43.8 percent in the first meeting between the two teams in Miami, falling behind by as many as 15 points in the third quarter and only recovering to tie it up after a 15-3 run.
James and the Cavs will try to keep up this winning streak by hitting a couple of big shots down the stretch, including a 3-pointer from the left wing in the second quarter and a 3 from the right corner in the fourth quarter.
James is shooting 46.5% from the floor, but he is still shooting 31.6 percent overall.
With his streak at eight games, James will have a better chance to win a game than his previous three-game run, but his scoring has also dipped.
He has averaged 18.5 points and shot 37.9 percent overall during the streak.
What to watch for: The Cavs will need to play a much more aggressive style than the Heat.
The Cavs were slow to get back into rhythm on offense and are now going to have to play much more defense, which is something James has struggled with all season.
They will also have to score a lot of points, especially in the paint, because Miami has struggled to shoot over the last three games.
The Heat will be a much better team in the defensive end than the Cavs, and will be much more difficult to defend in the post, where they rank 31st in the league.
James has averaged a team high-tying 18.2 points in his last three matchups with the Cavaliers, while James is a career 42.7 point scorer in those games.
James, who has scored a total of 50 points in four of his last five meetings with the Cavs (and has averaged 24.5 in those five matchups), is shooting 47.4 percent in his five postseason games.
It is unclear if James will start or if the Cavs can play him in a reserve role.
What you should know: Miami will have two All-Stars: James and Dwyane Wade.
Dwyene Wade had 22 points and 10 rebounds in a 104-96 victory over the Thunder on Thursday.
James had 17 points and 13 rebounds in the win.
LeBron is averaging 23.7 points and 17.3 rebounds in his past four postseason games against the Cavaliers.
What’s next for the Heat?
The Heat travel to Chicago for a three-day break before facing the Bulls on Saturday.
They face a third-place Chicago team that will also be without Derrick Rose, who is out with a fractured left hand.
Miami will host the Bulls at 8 p.m.
ET on Friday.
The game will be broadcast on ABC and Fox Sports Ohio.
