The more that LeBron James gets to the rim, the worse off the Brooklyn Nets are going to be in their second round series with the Miami Heat.
In the case of the play found here, it was some nice ball movement and cuts that freed up James near the rim. As Chris Bosh drove through the lane he found LeBron slashing to the rim and made the nice dish for an easy bucket.
The Heat entered halftime clinging to a three point lead, 46-43, with a buzzer beater from Deron Williams pulling the Nets within three. That sounds like the kind of game that suits the Nets, but they will have to keep James from getting to the rim if they are going to find a way to steal game one. Here’s more on the keys to this match-up with game one is underway.
