SAN ANTONIO (AP) — LeBron James slung his practice jersey over his head, letting the piece of mesh fabric sway down his back much in the way that a cape would.
Fitting. In Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, he might need a hero's effort to save the Miami Heat.
James and the Heat were still steaming Wednesday from their 113-77 loss in Game 3 of the finals to the San Antonio Spurs, who lead the series 2-1 and can move one win away from ending Miami's reign atop the league with a victory in Game 4.
James was 7 of 21 from the field in Game 3 and didn't even get to the foul line. He says, "I'll be better. I'll be much better," in Game 4.
