The Miami Heat are back in control after last night’s 90-79 win over Indiana, taking a 3-2 advantage in the Eastern Conference Finals. After trailing at halftime, the Heat came back strong, led by an offensive outburst from LeBron James. In fact, James took over every aspect of the game, finishing with 30 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, two steals, and a block. Meanwhile, Udonis Haslem chipped in another 16 points for the Heat, shooting an excellent 8-9 from the field.
LeBron was also up to his usual sneaker tricks, switching up colors of the Nike LeBron X PS Elite at the half. Earlier this month, LeBron debuted the “MVP” LeBron X during a game against the Bulls, but just couldn’t get it going in the first half. Later, he switched to the Nike LeBron X PS Elite and took over the game. Perhaps James had a similar idea tonight as he switched colorways, and really, who can argue with the results? The Nike LeBron X PS Elite is available now for $260 and features full-length Zoom Air cushioning, a Flywire and Hyperfuse construction, and Kevlar reinforcements for durability.
