Miami Heat forward LeBron James admits that he did fear that his team's rhythm might be affected by their eight-day rest before their Game 1 match-up Wednesday.

Brooklyn Nets were the opponents for the Heat's Eastern Conference semifinal opener last night, which acted as the first match since Miami completed their sweep of Charlotte Bobcats April 28th.

The Heat continued their unbeaten playoff streak this post-season with a dominated 107-86 win at home, but LeBron did admit post game that he feared for his side.

"I think what was the most important thing was our rhythm. It seemed like we didn't even take anytime off," LeBron said post Nets game.

"With us having eight days off, I feared the rhythm and how we might lose it. But after tonight I certainly don't fear it anymore."

It was a supreme performance by the Heat that puts a marker down and tells the rest of the league that the three-peat is well and truly on.

LeBron and his team-mates were particularly effective in the paint, with 52 points scored in that pivotal area of the court compared with only 28 for the Nets.

James added that he thought that his team went out an executed their game-plan to perfection.

"I thought we executed well. We had 52 points in the paint and we only had ten turnovers, so we were in attack mode and we didn't turn the ball over much," James added.

"Their defense can leave you stagnant, especially if you walk into screens. Tonight we got the ball from one side to another and really attacked them and got what we wanted."
