True game 5 was pretty bad at 3 of 14 and just 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Not a good game, but I have hard time calling game 4 and game 6 bad games. I mean in game 6 he went for 27 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists (though 9 turnovers doesn't help). And while the Cavs were favored, that team was pretty bad outside of Lebron. Mo Williams was the #2 guy and very old Shaq and Jamison were probably 3 and 4 (or maybe Anthony Parker). If 27, 19, and 10 is a bad game, sign me up.
Sure do it. What are these failures of Lebron outside of the Finals? Or for that matter in the Finals (outside of Dallas)?
I wouldn't exactly call going 18 of 53 from the field for a whopping .339% FG% in three straight losses to close out a series his team was heavily favored in a whopping success.
He shot 38%. 8 for 21 in a must win game isn't exactly stellar. 9 of those points came from the FT line & his team lost by 9. Nine turnovers is terrible. And Game 4 was 38% also. He was 0-5 from behind the arc too.
You can complain about his supporting cast all you want but they had home court & were heavily favored in that series. You lose at home by 32? C'mon.....
That's a letdown. Plain & simple.
In that game 6, the Cavs as a team shot 38%. I mean who was he supposed to pass to. And for the record, in the 4th quarter he was 3 of 5 for 10 points with 6 rebounds, 2 assists, a block, and 2 turnovers. The rest of the Cavs were 2 of 12 for 8 points, 8 rebounds, 0 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks, and 3 turnovers. To some how blame that game on Lebron is just strange. There is no question he was bad in game 5, but he was not in game 6. It certainly wasn't a great game, it just was no where near a bad one.
