Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra believes that his side will have to fight to the last minute to keep their NBA Championship hopes alive in game five of the finals.

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra has admitted that his side have to be prepared to fight to keep the NBA Championship for a third consecutive season.

The Heat trail the San Antonio Spurs 3-1 in the series following their heavy defeat in game four, and face a must-win game at the AT&T Center to keep their title hopes alive.

"We're not so entitled or jaded that we're above having to fight for it, and that's what it is right now," Spoelstra told reporters.

"It's competition. So we've got to find a way to fight and get this next game, and that's what it's all about."

Spoelstra's side face the Spurs in game five of the series later today.
