Well, LeBron James and the Miami Heat certainly stole one on Wednesday, and it will be interesting to see if they come out a little slow after such a sharp second half effort a couple days ago. Paul George was quite mad after the game that he did not get a foul called on the final play, but you are just not going to get that call on the road. Have to knock that shot down of your own accord, especially after momentum had been swinging so violently back and forth.
This one against the Sacramento Kings tips off at 7:30 PM EST and here is the TV info for it.

James’ teammates came out sharp in their last one, which ended up making the difference in the fourth with some pin point three point shooting by Ray Allen eventually evening things up. The Heat knew they needed to come out sharp with James’ ankle injury looming over the game.
“I knew that LeBron would be a little timid coming off the ankle early before the adrenaline starts pumping,” Dwyane Wade said after the game. “I wanted to be aggressive early on and it lasted the entire game.”
Against the Sacramento Kings, the Heat are favored (-10.5), but honestly not sure which way to swing here. Do think the Heat will win, but could also see DeMarcus Cousins busting out and having a huge game to make the score close in a loss. It could go either way, but just think the Heat might be a little burned out after the emotionally exhausting effort on Wednesday so do not know if they will cover the line.
