The Charlotte Bobcats have been putting up one hell of a fight in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, but unfortunately for them, they’re up against the King. LeBron and his cohorts managed to contain a late surge by the Bobcats to wrap up a 101-97 Game 2 win. James had 32 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals, proving to be quite the headache for Charlotte. He got it done in a brand new colorway of the postseason-equipped Nike LeBron 11 Elite, which you can check out in all its glory in the gallery above. Chris Bosh also came up big for Miami with 20 points on 8-11 shooting, while Dwyane Wade contributed 15 and 7 rebounds.

On the left coast, Dallas battled back from a 0-1 deficit in their 113-92 win over San Antonio, evening up the series at one win apiece. Game three tips off Saturday evening at 4:30 Eastern.

After the jump, you’ll find even more NBA Playoff coverage, plus MLB action and Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich in the first game of their Champions League semifinals.
