The NBA Finals will resume tonight in a presumably much more comfortable AT&T Center when the San Antonio Spurs welcome the Miami Heat. Air Max 90 Saldi . You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO or listen to the action on TSN Radio 1050 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Spurs grabbed a 1-0 series lead Thursday night in the sweltering heat of a late spring San Antonio night. Of course, it didnt help that the AT&T Centers air conditioner malfunctioned and didnt work through the course of the game. As temperatures soared into the mid-90s, the Spurs emerged with a 110-95 victory, but the busted AC unit played a major role. LeBron James was forced to leave the game midway through the fourth quarter due to cramping. James has faced cramping issues in the past and the four-time MVP was unable to move Thursday following a layup to get the game within two. "My body just shut down, basically my body said, okay, enough jumping for you for the night. Youve had enough," James said after practice on Friday. "Nothing I could do about it." That didnt stop social media from exploding, questioning James toughness. "I really dont care what people say about me," noted James. The two-time Finals MVP, the Heat, the Spurs and frankly anyone in attendance Sunday night should feel relieved. The AT&T Center staff fixed the problem and it should be very comfortable for Game 2. "It will be fine. Weve been assured of that," said Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra. The extreme conditions played a role in Game 1, but were the same for both squads. When James had to be carried back to the bench, the Spurs finished the game on a 31-9 run with six minutes to go. Danny Green, who set an NBA Finals record with 27 made 3-pointers last year, caught fire late in Game 1. He drained three long balls during the decisive run and finished with 13 points. Tim Duncan contributed 21 points and 10 rebounds, Tony Parker poured in 19 points and handed out eight assists, and Manu Ginobili totaled 16 points and 11 assists for the Spurs, who shot a scorching 14-of-16 from the floor in the fourth, including a perfect 6-of-6 mark from long distance. Tiago Splitter added 14 points and Boris Diaw pulled down 10 rebounds. The Spurs shot 59 percent for the game and 52 percent from long range. "Were not as good as we used to be defensively. So if thats going to diminish, you need to do something at the other end of the floor to make up for it," explained coach Gregg Popovich. "We changed our pace, and the way we approach things at the other end of the floor to make up for what were going to lose defensively. Thats the bottom line." James paced the Heat with 25 points and six assists, while Wade and Bosh supplied 19 and 18 points, respectively, in the setback. "We have to finish the game better, no matter who is on the floor," Wade said, referring to the absence of James. Ray Allen provided a spark off the bench with 16 points, while another veteran, Rashard Lewis, scored 10. The Heat have won 12 straight following a loss in the postseason and theres no reason to panic. Miami lost the first game in each of the last two Finals and went on to win the series. The series shifts to South Beach for Game 3 Tuesday night.

First up is a $105-million facelift to a bare-bones stadium built on a $62.5-million shoestring as part of the deal to bring the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup and Major League Soccer to Canada. "It became really obvious to us that we were taking a backdoor in Major League Soccer relative to our facilities, even in a seven-year-old building," Bob Hunter, chief facilities and live entertainment officer at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, said after the ceremonial groundbreaking Tuesday. "This is going to take us back to the top of the MLS stadium category," he added. Phase 1, to be completed by May 2015, will see the stadium capacity raised to 30,000 with 8,500 new seats plus additional washrooms and concessions, in the East stand. A larger high-definition video board will replace the existing screen at the north end while new suites and premium areas will help add to the MLSE coffers. MLSE can add another 10,000 temporary seats, which it hopes will be enough to bring a Winter Classic to Toronto. The Phase 1 deadline is to ensure a larger BMO Field is in place for the Pan American Games next summer, with rugby sevens expected to be a showcase event at the lakefront venue. Phase 2, slated to start in September 2015 and end May 2016, will see the addition of a canopy covering all seats with the exception of the North stand, as well as a new sound and lighting system. MLSE, which owns the MLS team and runs the city-owned stadium, is putting in $95 million to help pay for the first two phases. The city is kicking in $10 million, which MLSE will repay with interest over 20 years. Phase 3 is where the Argos come in, with a plan to reconfigure the field to accommodate CFL football. Cost of all three phases is going to be $125 million, with MLSE looking for the provincial and federal governmennts to contribute $10 million apiece. Air Max Plus Scarpe. That has yet to happen, so Phase 3 is on hold. There is a time concern. The Argos have a lease at Rogers Centre through 2017. But that deal cant be renewed, meaning they must find a new home for the 18 campaign. The city wants the Argos to join Toronto FC at BMO Field. But it has gone along with MLSEs wish that $20 million come from elsewhere. Hunter says if everything falls into place, the football phase could be accelerated. "Summer of 16 at best. And could be as late as summer of 17." But it could come down further down the line in terms of construction, as needed. Councillor Mark Grimes, chair of the Exhibition Place board of governors, is doing his best to bang the BMO Field drum for the CFL team which used to play at the now demolished Exhibition Stadium. "Im a huge Argo fan and a huge CFL fan. I think its very important we get them back home here where they belong," he said. MLSE also wants it to happen, Hunter said. "Weve always hoped that the CFL comes," he said. "Its a natural situation, a great solution for them." Hunter has plenty of deadline pressure already. "Its going to be very tight," he said. "As you can see, we started only last week. Theyre busy. We have a lot of work to do before May but were totally confident that well be there." Another deadline is May 9, 2015, when Toronto FC wants to play its first home game of the 2015 season. Toronto FC players Steven Caldwell and Michael Bradley liked what they saw from the artists renditions. "Very exciting times ahead," said Caldwell, the TFC captain. "We all cant wait for it to be done," added Bradley, who did his part in the groundbreaking ceremony by manning a bulldozer in the work zone east of the stadium. Chairman Larry Tanenbaum spoke for MLSE during the formal part of the proceedings. CEO and president Tim Leiweke was a silent partner at the event.
