DID YOU WATCH THE MIAMI HEAT LAST NIGHT TIE UP THE GAME LAST NIGHT? NBA AM: LeBron James Delivers in Clutch
Hate him or love him, there’s no denying that LeBron James delivered when the Miami HEAT needed him most during Game 2 of the NBA Finals. As the Oklahoma City Thunder fought back after trailing by as many as 17 points, it was James who stepped up in the fourth quarter and sealed the win.
In the past, James has disappeared in the clutch and opted to defer in the final quarter. However, on Thursday night, he took over the game and left his fingerprints all over Miami’s victory. Every time the Thunder made a basket and shifted the momentum in their favor, James snatched it back.
With 1:25 remaining in the game and just seconds after Russell Westbrook delivered a ferocious put-back dunk that got the home crowd fired up and brought the Thunder within three points, James hit a difficult bank shot that kept Miami in the driver’s seat.
“It was a broken play, but he did what great players do,” Erik Spoelstra said. “He created something out of nothing. It was a heck of a shot.”
