If the Spurs get violated by LeBron James tomorrow, they're going to have to give that side eye to Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant...and then themselves for playing shitty defense. Anthony's monster night at The Garden and Durant's January killing spree has inspired James to bring it back to his Cleveland high-scoring days, something which he doesn't really have to revert to because of the supporters around him.
LeBron says he may try to go for his own 60-pt moment one these day after seeing Melo and Durant.— Michael Wallace (@WallaceNBA_ESPN) January 25, 2014
LeBron says his teammates would have to essentially beg or threaten him to keep going for 60 or 70 after he'd hit 50.— Michael Wallace (@WallaceNBA_ESPN) January 25, 2014
Looks like it's time for James to stop being jealous. The scoring boost would come at the right time, too. The Heat is on a two-game winning streak, but .500 in its last eight.
