Experience has been a buzzword in these playoffs, and Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals was all of that again. As was the case in Game 4, Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls couldn’t close the the deal in the final minutes, while LeBron James and the time-tested Miami Heat made almost all the right moves. LeBron hit some tough jumpers to keep the Heat in the game early, but struggled to get any good looks the rest of the game, and his only success offensively came at the free throw line. His passing also didn’t make much of an impact, and his defense wasn’t as good as it had been in other games. Then he helped lead perhaps the most spectacular comeback of Miami’s season by scoring 12 in the 4th quarter including 8 in the final two minutes. Another big Game 5. Wow.
