Miami Heat : LeBron James Close to Perfection
It’s more than just the impressive scoring streak LeBron James is on right now. At the moment, he’s playing the kind of basketball that doesn’t just win MVP awards or titles for his Miami Heat. It’s about playing an all-time great level every day.
For the 30th consecutive game, LeBron James scored over 20 points, finishing with 32, 12 rebounds and 9 assists.
For the third time in four games, he has scored 32 points or more and not scoring less than 26 since December 20.
For the fourth time since Christmas, James has had a 20-8-8 game or better, and it’s usually much better than that, not to mention the field goal percentage that remind us of big men who spend all their time scoring through dunks and easy lay ups.
James is shooting 54.4% from the field this season.
Again, as it is when the Heat win, it’s about much more than LeBron James, but what the Heat can add to his almost guaranteed dominance.
The Heat were down by six with three minutes left, but finished regulation at a 103-103 tie while missing the potential game winning shot (that’s why James is just close to perfection) and simply ran away with it in overtime, winning 119-109, while James led team in the final five minutes with 7 points.
