Did the Bobcats really do "a good job" against LeBron?

When LeBron James is at his best, there simply isn’t a defence in existence that is going to stop him from scoring points.

That’s probably why the head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats, Steve Clifford, stuck up for his small forwards following his team’s sensational 124-107 loss to the Miami Heat on Monday.

Clifford defended his team after they succumbed to the awesome might of LeBron as he scored a career high 61-points. The reigning MVP was a man on a mission, and Clifford admits there was little he, or anyone else could do about it.

“Consider the greatness of the player and the sequence of what happened,” Clifford said of James’ night.

“He was in the pick-and-roll most of the time, which is where most of his baskets happened. As the ball was released, if you stopped (the video) and said, ‘Can we live with that shot?’ you’d realize MKG and Tolliver did a good job.

“He’s a phenomenal player who had a phenomenal night,” Clifford concluded.

“I just don’t want people saying it was the players’ fault. They actually did a good job.”

James’ performance once again raised eyebrows in a season which has seen his tag as the undisputed king of the NBA challenged by Kevin Durant.

The two are currently going head to head for the MVP crown, but with James showing no signs of giving up any ground, he could well end up winning the accolade for the fifth time.
