MIAMI -

Kawhi Leonard followed up his breakout game 3 performance with 20 points and 14 rebounds as the Spurs beat the Heat 107-86 to take a three games to one lead in the NBA Finals.

Lebron James led the Heat with 28 points to go along with eight rebounds in a losing effort. But his supporting cast did not provide any help. Dwyane Wade scored just ten points on 3 of 13 shooting.

The Spurs can wrap up their fifth NBA Championship at home in San Antonio in Game 5 on Sunday night. Under Gregg Popovich, the Spurs are 10-0 in a best-of-seven series when taking a 3-1 lead.

The Heat would become the first team in history to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. Miami is seeking its third straight championship.
