LeBron James hadn’t even attempted at least 25 field goals in a game since Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Indiana. You have to go back to March 18 against Boston for the last time James converted on at least 15 field goals.
MIAMI – It took longer than expected, but the Miami Heat have earned a third consecutive trip to the NBA Finals. The Big Three, along with coach Erik Spoelstra, came through in their biggest game of the year.
Now, the real work begins. Now, this Miami foursome begins the job of working on their legacy.
LeBron James. Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh. Erik Spoelstra. These are the men who shape the Heat, who determine the team’s fate. And these are the men tasked with getting the defending champion Heat back-to-back titles in their Finals matchup against San Antonio.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are now closing in on not their first, not their second, but their third consecutive NBA Finals appearance, where they will be looking for their second ring with “The Big Three.”
But before we can punch Miami’s ticket to the Finals, the Heat still have four games left to
win against an Indiana Pacers team they’ve lost 2 out of 3 against this season.
