LeBron ‘Went Back’ to His Cleveland Days

The diminished play of Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade drew a wisecrack from TNT commentator Reggie Miller during the Heat’s 91-77 loss to the Pacers on Saturday.
“We’re watching the Miami Cavaliers right now, playing this series,” Miller said shortly after halftime, with the Heat trailing 44-42.
The reference, of course, was to LeBron James’ weaker supporting casts during his time in Cleveland, which stretched from 2003 to 2010 and included a trip to the 2007 Finals. The 2013 MVP made a similar reference following Miami’s Game 5 win, in which he scored 16 points in the third-quarter to push the Heat to the victory.
“I kind of just went back to my Cleveland days at that point,” James said. “Let’s try to make more plays and be more of a scoring threat as well, and just try to figure out a way that I can ‑‑ I don’t know, just see if the guys would just follow me, and just lead them the best way I could. I was just in attack mode in the third quarter, look for my shot. And luckily I was able to make some.”
