How Duncan rebounds from Sunday's performance will be a major focus of Game 3. The Heat used a variety of defensive match-ups to limit Duncan, and in many instances Duncan simply missed open shots, but Heat forward Udonis Haslem played a key role limiting Duncan's offense.

With Haslem on the bench, Duncan is shooting 50 percent (8 of 16) in The Finals. With Haslem on the court, Duncan is shooting 18.8 percent (3 of 16). Here are two shot charts NBA.com of Duncan's percentages with Haslem on and off the court from the first two games of The Finals.
