For four games, the Celtics have done a pretty good job of making James’ life difficult when he tries to drive the lane. And with that in mind, it seems like a bit much to make a very big deal out of a highlight reel moment that occurred when a) the game was pretty much iced and b) Boston seemed spent on the defensive end.

Until you watch the clip another 3 or 4 times. Consider this : the series is tied at 2 and LeBron still hasn’t had a breakout game. Sure, even when he’s been relatively cold shooting, James has performed well at the other end of the floor, came up w/ 13 assists last night, etc. But a scoring explosion in character with what we saw throughout last year’s playoffs might well be in the offing
