LeBron James probably didn’t pick the best time to have his worst shooting night percentage-wise. He couldn’t make a basket down the stretch — or at virtually any other time — and the Boston Celtics eked out a 76-72 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night in the opener of the Eastern Conference semifinals. James was held to 12 points on 2-for-18 shooting. He missed three drives and a 3-pointer in the final minute. Last night ranks the highest in terms of LeBron’s worst shooting nights: 2008 at Celtics: 2-18 .111, 2005 vs; 76ers: 3-20 .150; 2003 at Clippers 2-13 .154; 2004 vs. Nets: 2-13 .154. With 22 seconds left and down by two The King had a chance to tie the game as he dribbled at the point before finding a lane to the basket, but his shot wouldn’t fall and James Posey was fouled after grabbing the rebound. He hit both free throws. James finished with 12 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists and 10 turnovers and he’ll be looking to bounce back from this performance in Game 2 on Thursday.
