Lebron Fires Back, Heat Demolish the Nets!

“It doesn’t prove nothing,” the Nets forward Reggie Evans told the Daily News when asked what it would mean to beat the defending champs. “That was a lockout season.”

“Our team is defending the Miami Heat. If our team has to defend one person, LeBron isn’t going to score nothing. . . . LeBron is no different from Joe  Johnson or Andray Blatche. No different,” Brooklyn’s starting power forward said. “People need help (defending certain players). Some people don’t need help. Everybody has to be double-teamed, it doesn’t matter who you are. You just have to stop LeBron in transition.”

“It sucks that Avery had to take the hit for them not wanting to play at a high level, but that’s what it looks like to me,” James said Wednesday. “They haven’t changed their offense, they haven’t changed their defense. They’ve picked it up  in intensity level and you can tell they like to play for P.J.” – nydailynews

“I’m certainly not going to disagree with LeBron before we play him,” Carlesimo said. – nypost

Post-game comments:

“It did,” James said when asked if Evans’ comment provided motivation. “No one knows what it takes unless you’ve done it. You can’t sit here and judge or talk about a team winning a championship unless you’ve been through it and actually done it.”

“Let my game do the talking. We understand what we’ve been through these three years that we’ve been together,” James said. “You just can’t come out and say something like that against a champion.”

“Hold on. Let me look at Reggie Evans numbers real quick: He had no offensive rebounds so we did our number on him and we got the win,” said James, who called out the Nets earlier in the day for basically throwing ex-coach Avery Johnson under the bus by not playing hard for him. – nypost

The Miami Heat left the Nets on the floor, demolishing them 105-85 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night! Lebron fired back at Reggie Evans comments both on the floor w/ 24 points, nine boards and seven assists, and before and after the game with commentary! Evans really seemed to take Lebron back down to earth, but considering he is the best player in the NBA today it wasn’t the wisest ‘decision’! Before the game, Lebron threw Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo in the fray by saying the Nets never played hard for Avery Johnson before he was fired! After the game, Lebron responded to Evans comments! Check it out above!
