LeBron & Dirk Ready For Game 5

MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is channeling his inner-Elvis as the team puts final touches on the plan for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Early Thursday morning, LeBron tweeted that it’s “Now or Never!!” about Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The tweet came at around 2:27 a.m., but James said the tweet was a message to him.

James said it was funny that the tweet generated so much attention.

On the other side of the court, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki said he “feels great” after battling through a fever over 100 degrees in Game 4. Nowitzki said it was a sinus infection and the fever was the only part that caused him trouble.

Nowitzki is averaging 26.5 points per game in the Finals, despite having to battle through a torn tendon at the top of his left middle finger, and the sinus infection in Game 4.

    Video released yesterday caused concern that Lebron and Wade had caught Nowitzki’s cough in Dallas, but it turns out they were just choking.
