Shane Battier called it one of the biggest honors of his life.
LeBron James had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and the Miami Heat defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 98-85 Saturday night to take a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference first round series.
The Charlotte Bobcats have likely earned some respect around the NBA after hanging tough with the two-time defending champion Miami Heat.
LeBron James grabbed a basketball off a rack as he left the practice court Tuesday, then turned and took a 40-footer without so much as jumping. Swish. Seems like James and the Heat aren’t worried about much right now. Their opponents in this Eastern Conference first-round series can’t feel the same.
LeBron James says Game 1 of a series is a feeling-out game, and Game 2 is where improvement happens.
LeBron James scored 27 points, Dwyane Wade added 23 and the Miami Heat used a late charge to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-88 on Sunday in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series.
If the Miami Heat are going to watch their season and reign atop the NBA end at the hands of the Charlotte Bobcats, then fates of the franchises will have to change in a hurry.
LeBron James had 34 points and eight rebounds, and the Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats for the 15th straight time, 104-96 in overtime Saturday night.
The Miami Heat are cruising through their best stretch since an epic winning streak earlier this year. That’s not likely to change against the Charlotte Bobcats – even if LeBron James doesn’t play.
The Miami Heat is not going to be a major player on the free agent market that opened up at midnight Monday. When you’re the champs, you can get away with sitting out the big spending.
