James did make 4 of 7 shots when defended by Smart, but he was 9 for 12 against Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, Jayson Tatum, and Terry Rozier combined. “You saw that he didn’t want to bring the ball up against me, to save energy, which we expected,” Smart said. “I just tried to make it as hard as I could for him.”
The NBA tracks the movement of every player on the court, and one of the data points tacked is how fast a player moves throughout a game. According to the data, James averaged a speed of 3.4 MPH during the first three games of the Eastern Conference Finals. No other player in the series has averaged a lower speed. Based on the numbers, James has been the slowest player in the series. Here’s how James responded when The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd presented him with that fact: “That’s the dumbest I’ve ever heard,” James told The Athletic after his 44 points evened this series at two games each. “That tracking can kiss my ass. The slowest guy? Get out of here.”
