The winner would get a 3-2 lead, and playing in the Palace vs. that team made me so nervous, but they simply didn't have anyone that could guard LBJ, nor match his production.
Thought on the historical performance by King James that night?
I remember watching that game. I kept thinking there's no way he is going to hit the next shot. But he kept hitting them. He couldn't miss. I'd never seen anything like it, even from MJ. I'm not saying he's better than MJ, but I've never seen anyone go on a streak like that. It might be the best performance in the history of the game.
I remember thinking, damn, I have to get up for work in the morning, and he keeps sending it into OT. I remember telling my friend about it, and she said she watched the game but didn't see the ending. I tried to explain to her just how much she missed, and I couldn't put it into words.
Everyone just kept asking each other at work, "Did you see it?"
