In the fourth quarter, with the Heat winning by nearly 20, fans began chanting “LeBron is tired,” a clear reference to the Cavaliers’ star’s decision to skip the game. James has played in Miami twice since leaving the Heat, losing both games in which he played.
James very well could be tired. He played nearly 45 minutes in a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. The Cavs star is averaging 26.2 points, 6.5 assists and 7.8 rebounds per game this season.
