Speaking of Dwight Howard’s starting performance, James said: "Dwight is a beast. When we miss, he brings us extra opportunities. As a team, we lost some shots. AD (Anthony David S) did not miss at all, but when the team missed some shots, he guaranteed rebounds on both offensive and defensive ends. He made a tip-off and he controlled the paint zone. We know we were blown out in the rebounding link in G3, Dwight Provided that kind of physical confrontation, so that we can do better in this area, which is great for the team. Tonight is the night game, the Nuggets are playing pick-and-rolls, I also played a few pick-and-rolls, we made consecutive hits in the final stage Free throws, that is the way to close the game, you have to defend successfully, and then hit the free throw when you are fouled. We did it."
In this game, James played 38 minutes, 7 of 18 shots, 26 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists.
