Sometimes there just isn’t much you can do when LeBron James has it going on the way he did Sunday night in Game 2 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio.
LeBron scored 35 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and had two steals in Miami’s 98-96 win over the Spurs, and he was incredibly efficient in getting his points. He was 14-of-22 from the field and 4-for-5 from the free throw line. The guy barely missed. A big reason for that was because he constantly attacked the rim.
As analyst Jeff Van Gundy noted, James didn’t even attempt a jump shot until the third quarter. And that’s when he really took over.
With the Heat down 62-56, James went to work and scored eight straight points to give his team the lead. Whether he was shooting from the outside, working in transition or getting rebounds and putting the ball back, LeBron was simply dominant.
When LeBron is dominating the way he did in Game 2, it’s awfully difficult not to be impressed, and it’s almost impossible not to at least respect his game.
