LeBron: 40 points, 18 boards, 9 asst., 2 blocks, & 2 steals
D-Wade: 30 points, 9 rebounds, 6 dimes, two blocks, & one steal
From 6:39 left in the 2nd quarter, through to 5:51 left in the game, the HEAT dynamic duo accounted for all of Miami’s field goals.
After that high flying act was complete, Indiana’s coach, Frank Vogel, stated, “We’ll come up with a game plan. We have the talent to combat this.”.
Coach, with all due respect, no you don’t. IMO, the only way the HEAT fail to make it to the Finals, where OKC or the Spurs do have the talent, will be if Miami beat themselves. That could still happen, of course, but if the Pacers coach had what is needed to stop the James/Wade tandem, he never should have allowed those two to take over & win Game 4 the way they did.
That may prove to be a fatal mistake.
