James' season on the brink in Boston - again
MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James, in Boston, season on the line.
This scenario has been seen before, and it's never worked out well for James.
Four years ago, his season ended with a Game 7 loss at Boston. Two years later, a Game 6 road loss at Boston not only ended Cleveland's season, but ended James' seven-year run as the Cavaliers' franchise player.
And on Thursday night, James will be back in Boston - with his back to the wall again. Boston leads Miami 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals.
James says he can't forget "how much pain'' the Celtics have inflicted on him over the years. And that's why he thinks it's fitting for the Heat to face a win-or-else game in Boston now.
