SAN ANTONIO — Erik Spoelstra said it's not all on LeBron James . Tim Duncan said there's nothing wrong with LeBron's offense other than the Spurs are guarding him with five guys. Gregg Popovich said we were trying to make early deadlines. The man himself said he "played like shit." So, here's LeBron James facing yet another milestone moment in his career that seems to be defined and redefined with every series, game and possession. The Heat are reeling and it's on James to deliver a performance for the ages. The Spurs' scheme is fantastic, as our own Mike Prada illustrated , and Kawhi Leonard's individual defense has been stellar. Under normal circumstances, you'd tip your hat to San Antonio and move on to the pivotal Game 4 in a series that hasn't yet had a linear storyline, except for this one. The Spurs have made James look mortal and they have throughout the series, save for a brief flash of dominance in Game 2 and some isolated moments in the opener. Besides a brief flurry at the end of the third quarter that only momentarily slowed the Spurs' roll, there weren't many times in Game 3 when LeBron looked remotely like LeBron. How San Antonio's offense is humming Pounding the Rock explains how the Spurs are beating Miami's traps. James has scored just 50 points on 54 shots in this series — or six fewer than Danny Green , who has had 24 fewer attempts. He got up 21 shots in Game 3, which doesn't suggest that he was tentative.

Any father-son relationship, especially when the boy is in his teens, can be a contentious one, but things can get even more complicated when the duo is starting in a movie together. Luckily, Will and Jaden Smith seem to be taking the work around their latest collaboration, " After Earth ," in stride, without any personal issues coming to the front. But being the troublemaker that he is, MTV News' Josh Horowitz headed to the red carpet premiere of "After Earth" in New York to see what kind of mischief he could drum up. When speaking with Will and Jaden, Horowitz had the father son duo spar in a no-holds-barred rapid-fire question and answer session. They would have to decide who was better at what, and they handled it pretty agreeably. Check it out in the video above.

Bill O’Reilly continued going after President Obama tonight for not providing the public with sufficient answers for any of the three scandals damaging his administration this week, and instead attempting to “put a happy face” on his administration’s efforts to get to the bottom of things. O’Reilly said that Obama needs to start providing actual details about Benghazi, political targeting by the IRS, and the Department of Justice seizing the phone records of AP reporters, because things can only get worse from here. RELATED: Obama Defends DOJ In AP Scandal: ‘Leaks Related To National Security Can Put People At Risk’ O’Reilly claimed there is currently a “deep suspicion” that the Obama administration “created an atmosphere where far-left zealots in the IRS were basically unsupervised.” He also said that on Benghazi, Obama “fell back on an old canard” of blaming the attack in part on a lack of security spending, which O’Reilly said was already disproved, and not “bad management.” With this and the potential abuse of power by the Justice Department to deal with, O’Reilly said Obama needs to get out in front on these scandals and be a “problem solver.” O’Reilly said Obama needs to stop stonewalling and “put[ting] a happy face” on these big issues, and provide the public with “legitimate reasons” for the government’s actions in all three cases. He also noticed how from Obama’s call to increase security funding to pushing for federal s

Facebook has declined to run an ad that criticizes Facebook's new political lobbying group , FWD.us, because it uses CEO Mark Zuckerberg 's face. The Washington Post notes : In a statement, Facebook said it generally rejects “ads that contain Mark’s image because – not surprisingly – in our experience those ads tend to be confusing for users, and frequently misleading. Users may click on the ad thinking it is a message from Mark or from Facebook, not understanding that they are actually in an advertisement seeking to take advantage of Mark’s image.” The problem is that the ad, from CREDO Mobile, a liberal non-profit fundraising group , isn't just about Zuckerberg's face. It's about the uncharacteristic new turn Facebook has taken by funding a lobbying group, FWD.us, that supports the Keystone XL gas pipeline that is planned to run from Alaska to the lower 48 United States. Facebook is funding FWD because it wants to change the law on H-1B immigration visas in order to allow more foreign tech workers into the U.S. To get that deal done, FWD appears to be supporting politicians who need support on the pipeline issue. The CREDO ad was doubtless an unintended consequence of Facebook's political ambitions.

Google is set to be asked to explain its business and tax arrangements in the UK once more, according to comments from the head of a UK parliamentary committee investigating the Internet giant. Last November, Google, Starbucks and Amazon were quizzed over their tax payments and now Reuters reports that Margaret Hodge, head of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), will contact Google’s UK representatives with an additional request to explain how it closes sales and works between its London and Dublin offices. By classifying that sales and business deals are sealed out of Dublin, Google is believed to be saving millions in potential tax payments; indeed, it reportedly paid just $ 6 million in UK taxes in 2011. The resurrection of the case comes after a Reuters report raised questions about Google’s UK operations. Google exec Matt Brittin told the news agency that the company didn’t close business deals with UK-based customers from the UK, a fact that appears to conflict with comments from Google customers and evidence from staff in the country. Executives say the search engine giant complies with all UK tax regulations and rules, but one detail that Reuters suggests could be a smoking gun is Google job descriptions. LinkedIn profiles for more than 150 employees appear to suggest that they are involved with the sales process, while the company has rejected the suggestion the wording of London-based vacancies on its website — such as t
