VIDEO: Important lesson, do not anger LeBron James

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Clippers were struggling in the third quarter of their game vs. the Heat. But they were in it. They really were. It was a 12-point game, but the Clippers were still within range. In the third quarter, DeAndre Jordan made what could have been a game-altering play. He blocked the reigning MVP LeBron James at the rim. James went down hard and seemed shaken. Maybe this was the kind of play the Clippers needed to spark them.

Yeah ... about that.

James finished with 15 points in the third quarter, 30 points in the game on 11 shots, five rebounds and six assists for the game. Another masterpiece in a blowout, blemished only by the five turnovers in a 111-89 win over the Clippers.

It was a game. It really was. Until LeBron decided it wasn't any longer.

Then it was not.
