VIDEO: LeBron James' third-quarter explosion in Game 2
LeBron James shows off an array of jump-shot styles in the third quarter, and makes all but one of them.
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.
The Heat star isn't done with the NBA, he believes.
