LeBron James had done his part to put the Miami Heat in control of the Eastern Conference semifinals, and one last free throw was meaningless except to him. He missed, leaving him one shy of his first 50-point playoff game, muttering to himself after. “That’s the first time I’ve been disappointed in myself in a win,” James said. He tied his playoff career high of 49 points and broke Dwyane Wade’s franchise record for points in a playoff game in Miami’s win. Despite LeBron’s heroics the game was very close all the way to the end. It was Chris Bosh who made the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 57 seconds left, and the Heat beat the Brooklyn Nets 102-96 for a 3-1 series lead. If you want to commemorate LeBron’s amazing performance get a pair of the Nike Soldier 7. It was the Soldiers, not the LeBron 11 Elite, playing the leading role last night. Photos via @geminikeez.
