He played 50 minutes in the most pressurized game of his career, so I think some turnovers and missed shots are excusable. Someone would have to be crazy to criticize Lebron after last night's performance, regardless whether they won or lost.
LeBron was unstoppable for the vast majority of the 4th quarter. But when Wade came into the game late LeBron changed his play and damn near threw the game away. Within the Heat's last couple of possessions he had a number of bad shots and questionable decisions. I was watching the game wondering what happened to LeBron in the last 3 minutes of the game.
