BronBron goin off
First, let's start with those highlights from yesterdays matchup against the Lakers. Tight game up until the 4th quarter, where LA started turning the ball over, Miami got running, and Bron put up a couple ridiculous dunks. Just completely ran away with the game. That finishes a week that saw Miami handily beat Houston, the Clippers and Lakers in succession. At 8-2 in their past 10, on a 5 game streak, Miami is starting to round into form coming up on the All Star break. The biggest reason for that? Yup, LeBron.
As has been widely reported, in his last 5 games he's averaging 31 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 1.5 steals, while shooting 71% from the field, and 77% from three. Those are video game numbers. At least 30ppg on 60% shooting for 5 games has happened two other times in NBA history, and not for 30 years. It's almost impossible to be playing better basketball than that. The game against OKC on Thursday should be great.
Also, this is awesome:
