LeBron James virtually unstoppable inside, outside, drops 35 (VIDEO)

Jun 9, 2014, 11:59 AM EDT

SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs remain the team that better uses their system to extract the most from their players, they are the coach’s dream where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

But the Heat have LeBron James.

That was enough to even the NBA Finals at 1-1. LeBron went off for 35 points on 64 percent shooting and carried the Heat to the Game 2 win.

In the video above you see how LeBron’s game just took what the Spurs gave him. In the first half they were more up in his face, playing him tight, so he put the ball on the floor and drove to the rim. At halftime the Spurs adjusted, played back on him to take away those drives and he just drained jumper after jumper. What else can the Spurs do?

“Well, you can go double him if you want,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said after the game, when asked why they didn’t. “He’s a pretty good player.  I’m going to guess he’s going to find the open man.”

LeBron did that too, with Chris Bosh in the corner for a three that put Miami ahead for the night.

      Agreed! Where are all the Lebron haters?????? The internet has fallen silent today…… Cramp gate is going to prove to be the greatest thing to happen to Miami in these finals. An angry motivated Lebron has proven to be pretty much be unstoppable at this point. The spurs are the deeper more balanced team but lebron has another gear no else can get to. Heat in 6.

        Please see above. Nobody is silent and 1 game is not a series. You Heat and Lebron fans are such clowns. Probably cheered for the Lakers 10 years ago, as well as the Yankees and Patriots

    He’ll need to play very close to this level 3 more times if the Heat want to 3 peat

    A realistic Heat fan here. Happy that they won Game 2, but still leery of these Spurs. If the Spurs make their FTs after that Flagrant on Rio, the spectacular performance by LBJ might have been for nothing. You would think that performance by LBJ would have resulted in a double digit victory. For my tastes, the Spurs had way too much fight in them after taking the Heats best punch. As a fan of the game, nothing beats close championship games. But as a Heat fan, I am looking for a big Heat win in Game 3. Not really sure how, but the Heat needs to blow the Spurs out, ASAP!

      Let’s have a few more rational thinking Heat fans like yourself, please. Great game!

      I will take 3 more 1 point victories and be just fine with it

    • engh533 - Jun 9, 2014 at 6:41 PM

      Coming from a Heat fan here…the game is not decided on one play the game is decided on a collection of all the plays..We keep using the word IF and that is all speculation, let the games play out and live with the results

    Miami is playing a tremendous team with a tremendous coach on their floor. Miami hung in both games and the game were he missed the last 7 mins in they lost is a good sign for Miami. Were going back home where the AAA will be electrifying and the Heat will feed off of that. Much respect for the spurs. They can totally win in Miami but it’s going to be the hardest thing for them to do this postseason. Miami is a different team on their home floor and when there transition game gets going it can’t be stopped. This is gonna come down to if pop is gonna continue to leave man to man vs Lebron with minimal doubles teams and letting him and daring him to shoot, because if that switches , that’s when he’ll find his teammates. Make no mistake Miami has all of what it takes within them to come back to SA up 3-1. The spurs needs a star to completely dominate like Lebron did game 2.

    The Miami heat….the only team that can make laker fans cheer for the celtics when they play them. Wouldn’t you say for every bandwagon fan there’s a bandwagon hater? I know a couple of them on this forum…

  9. newyorkball82 - Jun 9, 2014 at 5:12 PM

    Lebron had 35 points and the Heat still only won by 2… The Spurs are the antithesis of what the Heat are. They dont need lebron james to win this series.

    • engh533 - Jun 9, 2014 at 6:34 PM

      So how many points do you have to win by to win the game?

  10. engh533 - Jun 9, 2014 at 6:47 PM

    Could someone please explain to what’s the difference between a blowout win and a one point win

  11. antistratfordian - Jun 9, 2014 at 7:47 PM

    The stat totals don’t really illustrate how incredible of a game this was from James – but his 1st half shot chart compared to his 2nd half shot chart does.

    The Spurs dared him to go “Game 7″ again and he obliged.
