LeBron James started Game 2 of the NBA Finals aggressively. On Sunday, all the Miami Heat superstar wanted to do in the first half was attack the basket. After he saw a few shots go in, though, he decided to change things up. A couple of minutes into the third quarter, he calmly hit a mid-range jumper, his first such attempt of the evening.
Later on in the period, when Boris Diaw was slow to close out on the perimeter, James made a 3. After that, he was in a zone.
James scored 14 of his game-high 35 points in that third quarter, making six consecutive jump shots. It was a brilliant performance from a brilliant player, one of those times where there was nothing the Spurs could do. This is what the Finals are about.
