When opponents have seen Miami Heat stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in the open court on a fast break, the result is usually an easy bucket for the Miami Heat. But in Game 5, Miami’s bread-and-butter went stale and helped submarine an otherwise solid effort by the team.
The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs don’t look like almost exact copies of each other, but statistically speaking there’s almost no better matchup of teams than the two squads headed for the NBA Finals.
LeBron James has spent his entire life being called the best in the game and Monday night, he almost added another feather to his cap. James scored 31 points on 13-of-14 shooting to lead Miami past Charlotte 99-94 Monday night, giving the Heat their 10th consecutive victory against the Bobcats.
