LeBron ties career playoff high

Published Add your comment

LeBron James had 25 points in the first half of game four of the east semis against the Brooklyn Nets, and the Heat were shooting over 60 percent at the break. 

In the second half the Heat started missing more...well, most of them.

James added 24 in the second half to match a career playoff high of 49 points in Miami's 102-96 win, and now the Heat are in a dominant position heading home for game five. 

James was a crisp 16 of 24 from the floor and made 14 of his 19 free throws.

The two-time reigning NBA finals MVP scored 49 points in a playoff game back in his Cavaliers days; tallying his career high for the first time in game one of the east semis in 2009 against the Orlando Magic.

The Heat now lead the Nets 3-1 in the best-of-even series, with game five set for Wednesday night in Miami.
