LeBron James Says It’s Time for Miami to Win Two in a Row

by June 16, 2013

For the Miami Heat, they’re trying to reach two consecutive wins in the NBA Finals, to say nothing of the overall goal of winning two straight championships. According to LeBron James, with Game 5 looming tonight, it’s time for the defending champs to finally take two in a row from the San Antonio Spurs. Per the Miami Herald: “It’s not as if we’ve never won two in a row,’ coach Erik Spoelstra all but scoffed Saturday. Not lately, though. ‘It’s time,’ LeBron James declared. ‘We’re well overdue and it’s time to win consecutive games. Enough is enough.’ Miami last won two in a row in a playoff series a full month ago, vs. Chicago. The two series since have seen the Heat play 11 games in a row without back-to-back wins. They are on an 0-5 run after victories. It is what stretched the Indiana series to the full seven games. And it is what could do the same in these Finals vs. San Antonio unless Miami finds a way to win Game 5 Sunday. If the Heat doesn’t make it two in a row Sunday, it would then need to win two in a row in Games 6 and 7 back in Miami. […] ‘No excuses why. It just happened,’ said Dwyane Wade, prior to Saturday’s practice. ‘Now we know if we don’t win two [in a row], we won’t win the championship. I wasn’t that smart in school, but I do know that. We always respond to a challenge. This our challenge now.'”
