LeBron stepped up to the free throw line, with the game already in the bag, one point away from an iconic 50 point performance. He knew he was sitting at 49 points, and although the win was most important, he wanted that 50 spot. Unfortunately for King James, he bricked the free throw.
Still, Bron’s 49 point shellacking of the Brooklyn Nets was nothing to scoff at. He shot 16-24 from the field and added 6 rebounds and 3 steals to his stat line. He locked down Joe Johnson in crunch time, and was the driving for behind Miami’s game 4 victory at the Barclay’s Center.
The Heat now return home to South Beach with a chance to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the 4th straight year.
