Since I didnt make one last year (being his first year in Miami) and the other is too long to continue, this is my 2012 all things LeBron thread. I welcome all fans, haters, etc to contribute. LeBron James is putting up another MVP type season and has the Heat in place to contend again this year. He leads the team in minutes played, scoring, assists, rebounds, and FG percentage. LeBron is 2nd in the league in scoring, top 10 in shooting percentage, top 10 in assists, top 25 in rebounds, top 15 in steals. The Heat are currently the #2 seed in the East behind the Bulls. They are currently on a back to back to back road trip. Here's there results from last night...
MILWAUKEE (AP)—LeBron James and the Miami Heat found a way over one of the oddest hurdles they’ve faced in an otherwise strong start to the season: They’ve finally beaten the Milwaukee Bucks.
James scored 35 points on 16 for 21 shooting and the Heat used a third-quarter surge to beat the Bucks 114-96 on Monday night.
Dwyane Wade scored 22 and Mario Chalmers added 13 for the Heat, who were 0-2 against the Bucks this season coming into the game. James scored 16 of his points in the third quarter as the Heat took control.
“I know what happened the third quarter the last time we played here,” James said. “We had a big lead and they just came out and jumped on us. It was good that we were able to come out and put some pressure on them.”
Bucks coach Scott Skiles wants to see his team improve defensively, but didn’t necessarily blame James’ big night on poor defending.
“He can take and make difficult shots—and maybe they’re not difficult for him,” Skiles said. “They’re difficult for most people. They’re not difficult for him. He hit a couple of fadeaways in front of our bench, 18-, 19-foot fadeaways with a guy in his face, so you’ve got to give him those.”
