LeBron James hit two free throws with 4.1 seconds left for the Cleveland Cavaliers to pull ahead of the Miami Heat 92-91 yesterday at the American Airlines Arena. Dwayne Wade had the final shot of the game but failed to connect, giving Cleveland their 35th victory of the season. Flash scored 30 of 32 in the first half with 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals. LeBron produced quite the stat line himself, netting 32 with a side of nine boards and four assists.
James and the Cavaliers have won eight of their last nine against Miami. “Two really, really good friends, one of my best friends that I have, just two great competitors not wanting to lose to each other,” said LeBron after the game. “But at the same time, knowing that we’re putting on a show not only for each other, but for the fans and whoever was watching the game.” The Heat are next set to matchup with the Toronto Raptors Wednesday night as the Cavs head to Minnesota to face the T’wolves.
