Another great game by LeBronBy Don Jarrett on Tue May 13, 2014 at 09:15 am
Just so it's clear, I'm not a LeBron James fan. In fact, I quite dislike him. But man, was he dominant last night against Brooklyn.
49 points on 16/24FG, carrying the team and scoring nearly half of their points. When they needed the extra pass, LeBron made it to Bosh for a big 3. Considering Bosh only had 12 and Wade 15, it was pretty necessary for LeBron to take over the way he did. I still don't think anyone is stopping Miami on the way to the 3-peat.
I can't say I didn't love seeing him dominate Paul Pierce either. At one time I had respect for him, but after the whole 'injury' thing against the Lakers, being wheeled off and hamming it up, I lost it all. Keep talking trash, Pierce, really makes you look good.
I'm hoping the Pacers can give them a good fight, provided they get through Washington. I'll be rooting hard for Roy Hibbert. The Spurs also look like they're gaining their form despite the setback last night to make it 3-1. I'll never count out a Duncan-led team 100%, but Miami won't be stopped if James keeps that up.
