The sequel is rarely as good as the original, but often times it’s still very much worth watching. That was certainly the case when LeBron James channeled his NBA Finals Game 7 heroics on Thursday night against the Knicks.
In similar fashion to his epic full court chase down block on Andre Iguodala with time ticking down in the decisive NBA Finals game, James tracked down the Knicks’ Courtney Lee from behind and block his layup attempt against the backboard.
It was a supremely impressive play and effort from LeBron, especially considering the game was out of reach and was, obviously, not even close to as important as Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
The play capped a great night for No. 23, as he finished the game with a triple-double with 18 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds in the team’s 119-104 win.
Hopefully this is all a sign that LeBron is getting himself into playoff form as the NBA’s regular season comes to a close and the Cavaliers look to defend their title in just a few weeks time.
