I respect what James has done, I don't know if I would consider him a clutch player. He gets nervous. I know stats contradict this, but... I've never seen him dominate in the clutch where his scoring completely takes over down the stretch until the final buzzer in a close match.

What else would LeBron have to do at this point to prove he's a clutch player?

I want him to hit shots like Ray Allen and Kyrie. Timely , game-winning shots. Consistently. Like the one he hit against Golden State in 2013 regular season but in a pressure situation. LeBron is awesome but I wouldnt call him clutch. He's not a perfect player.

Yes. Like that. If he could have kept that going. That was prime time. That was before his anxiety breeakdown in Boston and he hasnt been the same player. He needs to completely dominate mentally. Watch Jordan against the Jazz in 98 Finals

Interesting match up to see Shumpert try and defend Harden. Might be the best perimeter defender for him.

Ariza can get hot from 3 so interesting to see if Bron sticks to him.

Eric Gordon is on another tear this year.

Yeah. D'Antoni opted not to rest him at all in the 2nd half bc Mbah Mout was out, so that was definitely the biggest factor...but James needs to get his conditioning up.

He should be able to play a full half if necessary and play well throughout.

LeBron James is a clutch player, isn't he? I haven't check the stats in a long time, but I think he was very good in that regard. But it seems like you are looking for a game tying/winning shot. He has hit some, but I think the percentage isn't very good.
