James didn't like having to sit, but he sure liked what he saw.
''I'm not a guy who's in foul trouble a lot, so it was difficult for me to sit down early in the third,'' he said. ''But we have a great supporting cast. Our defense was tremendous in the third quarter. It allowed us to go into the fourth quarter with a lead.''
Then James came back and increased it.
James scored 32 points, including eight straight to start the fourth quarter and break open the game, and the Heat took a 3-0 series lead, sending the New York Knicks to an NBA postseason-record 13th straight loss, 87-70 on Thursday night.
No NBA team has overcome a 3-0 deficit.
