The story that hasn't been talked about is that LeBron dominated every playoff game for 3 quarters, but it's wrong to say he took over a lot of 4th quarters. The Heat either built up a big enough lead that LeBron didn't have the pressure to be the guy late in the game, or his supporting cast helped seal the deal.
People forget that game 2 of the Celtics, LeBron was pretty terrible late in the 4th. Same with game 7. He was clumsy late in the 4th in game 2 against OKC. He wasn't overly effective late in game 3. Game 4 was the Mario Chalmers show.
What playoff game did LeBron play last year where he took over the last 5 minutes of the game? Not very many. Something people don't talk about very much.
