James Hit The Floor Running and Probably Hasn’t Stopped Yet — But the Celtics Were Stopped Today!

By Bobby Toulaine –  Le Bron James has taken hits for not showing up in the big ones — and not being able to finish late in games.  He did not finish late in the Heat – Celtics game 6 today.   He didn’t have to.  James hit 30 in the first half — 45 for the game.  He ran, drove, dunked, shot, rebounded, and hustled the Heat to victory.

Methodic, smart, and efficient — the Celtics started out a step behind the Heat – and never caught up.  Possessed might be too strong a word — but it certainly looked like Le Bron James had only one thing in mind — play out of this world and carry the Heat to victory with or without the other players help.  Pretty much an all-world game and a spectacle of domination par excellence.

Maybe this game was the glue — er, oil — the Heat needed to get back in the zone and play their way into the NBA finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Or maybe it was an eruption at a time when it was absolutely needed — and now Le Bron James and the Heat can return to form.  And the Celtics will come in and play like the professional and the seasoned champions they are — and go home with the Eastern Conference Championship under their belts and an NBA Finals on the horizon.  It should be interesting to see.

Meanwhile — the young guns of the Oklahoma City Thunder await.  Don’t get too excited.  And – also –  be careful what you wish for!
