After LeBron James’ body failed in Game 1, he scored a game-high 35 points to help the Heat win game two of the finals by just 2 points (final score: 98-96).
Specialists agreed that the injury sustained in the fourth corner of game 1 caused the Heat the match. All critics were silenced with an MVP worthy performance in the second game.
James talked about Game 1:
“What happened Thursday happened Thursday. My whole focus was how I was going to help this team even the series and just try to make some plays.”
The new NBA final format is 2-2-1-1-1 with San Antonio being the hosts of the first 2 games. The Spurs surely wanted to win the first 2 games in order to have extra cushion. This did not happen as both teams are now tied 1-1 in what announces itself as a close NBA final.
The fourth quarter was the one that was particularly exciting for fans. While in game 1 it was the Heat that was ahead, in game 2 we saw the Spurs up 87 to 85. The team missed 4 free throws (2 by Duncan and 2 by Parker). James then hit a 3-pointer, which completed a 7 points swing. This lead towards the Heat’s victory.
