Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

“It was something we wanted to get to just to help settle us and get into a more aggressive attack,” coach Erik Spoelstra said of the decision to post up the 6-foot-8 James. “We wanted to be a little more aggressive, a little more committed to getting into the paint and seeing what would happen. LeBron was very committed and focused not to settle.” – nydailynews
