On Friday, James banged his right leg in a fourth-quarter collision with Larry Nance Jr. James said afterward it left him with pain in the leg and the ankle. Asked how the leg felt Sunday morning, James said, “It’s been better, but I’ll be ready tonight.” James wouldn’t say whether the ankle or the leg was more of an issue. “Uh, the ankle is a part of the leg, so it’s the full leg,” he said.
Kyle Korver has been a part of the James takeovers for nearly two years now as his teammate. While none of this really surprised him, the veteran sharpshooter still shook his head at how locked in he gets when the lights shine brightest. “I’ve watched him play a lot of really great games,” Korver said after the 109-99 win. “But that was right up there towards the top. Special performance. We needed it.”
As for describing how LeBron was able to dig deep and do it again, especially after playing all but two minutes of the game, Korver knows how much he savors the opportunity. “It’s just so much heart,” Korver said. “He wanted this game so bad…His performance was amazing. I’ve said this a thousand times, but I’m glad he’s on my team. He craves those moments. He loves those moments. When the game’s on the line, when the season’s on the line – he’s been rising up. That’s what the great players do.”
