Miami Heat forward LeBron James is supposed to wear the protective mask for another week. After scoring 61 points with it on against the Charlotte Bobcats Monday night, James struggled to score while wearing it against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday and wasn't having a good start to the game Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
Instead of sticking with the protective gear, James ditched the mask while walking to the bench during a timeout in the first quarter. He scored just two points on 1-of-6 shooting to go with three assists and two rebounds in the first quarter. James ended up with 19 points and struggled to find his shot all night as Miami fell to the Spurs.
