The King will need his supporting cast to earn their paychecks if they make it back to the finals. Give Lebron 40 every night and they could still get beat.
The King's assists created more points from his "supporting cast" than he scored.
An item of note from this game. THE easiest way to score in the NBA. When shooting a jump shot, be sure to come down on the foot of the player defending you. Before last night, I never realized that was a foul in the NBA

LeBron's upper body wasn't within 5 feet of the shooter when he came down. He had turned to head to the basket for a rebound. Only one of his feet was still close to the shooter, his foot found it. Good form on a spot up jumper means your feet should come down 12 inches closer to the basket when you come down. Taking out someone was not what happened last night. Dumb rule, at least it should be reviewable, looking for intent.
Fillmore in favor of undercutting defenseless jump shooters. Classy. You must have been a huge Bruce Bowen fan because he made a living doing that crap.
Undercutting??? LIAR! I'm not for undercutting. Did you see the play? Don't be such an ars. How is it undercutting when the shooter jumps TOWARD a player whose upper body is 5 feet away, with his back turned and lands on his foot? This rule means that after the shooter follows through he should look for a foot to step on to get foul shot/shots. I would say the same, if the exact incident happened to LeBron.
Lol since when do u have to prove intent on a foul? ROFLROFL! Incidental contact is a foul all over the place tard, especially on jump shooters.
What an ignoramus. There you go running your mouth again without doing the research.
Instances where NBA officials review fouls.
1) Review of last second fouls 2) Review of flagrant fouls 3) Review of clear path to the basket fouls 4) Review of restricted area block/charge fouls 5) Review of off the ball foul timing
All I'm suggesting is, of the MANY fouls that ARE reviewed, this should be another. Obviously there have been cases when a player has purposely placed his foot so the shooter would come down on it. This ABSOLUTELY was not the case in the instance in the 1st game against Toronto.
What about the many cases of a rebounder coming down on the foot of another player? That can be done on purpose. Can be just as dangerous, leading to high ankle sprains and broken ankles. No foul.
