Watch out, the Miami Heat are back in their groove and at their terrifying best. Just ask the Indiana Pacers team last night.
Miami were awesome in Game 4. Their 12 point margin of victory nowhere near as much as it should have been. If you missed the game and just happened to check the box score and statistics from last night you would be misinformed to think that it was just a routine win. How wrong would you be...
LeBron James and Chris Bosh in particular played with an amazing intensity, being completely unrelenting towards the Indiana offense and defense, never allowing a moments rest and capitalising on the frequent lapses in Pacer concentration that arose from just being worked so hard.
The woes of Indiana's game one win are so far in the distance that it is almost unthinkable for Miami to somehow relapse and play in such a dispirited way again. One hopes that a team leader like LBJ wouldn't allow that from his teammates.
And speaking of James, it seems like the former MVP has finally decided to turn up himself. LeBron was all over his man like a rash on defense, forcing an exceptional amount of turnovers and traps in the corner or on the perimeter.
And on the other side of the ball he was imperious. His 13 of 21 shooting tell their own story but it was the breakaway dunks that were most important. With the game tight and the lead changing hands, two massive slams from the 29-year old caused the American Airlines Arena to explode, and the Pacers to shrink into an absolute shell.
It's 3-1 to the defending champs and I am confident in saying there is absolutely no way back for Frank Vogel's men.
