LeBron James dropped a game-high 40 points (15-21 FG, 4-6 FT) while grabbing 13 rebounds, dishing out seven assists, and adding three steals, six triples, and four turnovers across 42 minutes of play in a 111-108 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 5 on Friday night.
James went 6-for-9 from beyond the arc, his highest three-point total of the 2020 NBA Playoffs. As evidenced by his gaudy stat line, James played like a man possessed, and when it came down to crunch time, he delivered a perfect pass to Danny Green on a wide-open three-pointer to win the game (and the series), but came up short. James is one win away from his fourth title, but the Heat are not going away. King James' next opportunity to hoist the NBA trophy will come on Sunday for Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
