“That’s the first time I’ve been disappointed in myself in a win,” James said before smiling.
The reason the King joked about being disappointed after beating Dwyane Wade’s franchise playoff record of 46 points with his 49 in a GM4 win is because he wanted 50 but missed a free throw with 1.1 seconds left in the game. The 49 is still a career playoff high and the 12th time he’s scored atleast 40 in the playoffs and 7th time he’s passed the 45 point mark which places him on a list with Wilt and MJ.
“He was what was needed on the road and that’s what makes him the best player in the game,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
James also took the time during the game to visit Jay-Z and Beyonce on the sidelines to try to get the scoop on what the hell happened between Jay and Beyonce’s sister Solange.
