NBA Finals: LeBron James won't commit to starting fourth quarter

MIAMI -- After being on the bench to start the fourth quarter in Game 1, LeBron James said Sunday night he won't commit to starting the fourth for the Heat in Game 2. 

"We'll see how the game goes. If I need a breather, I'm going to take one. If I don't, I'll be out there on the floor," he said. "But also we'll see the lineup that's out there. I mean, every game is different. You never know what kind of rhythm you're going to be in, you don't know how the game is going to be played, so we'll see what happens."

James also said later he doesn't subscribe to the "healthy fear" idea Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem spoke of at shootaround Sunday. 

"I just live in the moment," James said. "Obviously it is what it is. We're down 0-1; we can't afford to go down 0-2. "
