Now, I could be exaggerating about King James having a photographic memory, but LeBron definitely felt some type of way about the Boston Celtics blasting the doors open to start the fourth quarter, because he remembered every detail of the spurt.

Putting his ability to dissect a team on display, James breaks down in amazing detail of the 7-0 run the Celtics used at the start of the fourth quarter to break Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals open.
“What happened? Um, we ran them — in the first possession — we ran them down all the way to two on the shot clock. Marcus Morris missed the jump shot, followed it up, they got a dunk,” James said. “We came back down, ran a set for Jordan Clarkson, and he came off and missed it. They rebounded it, and we came back on the defensive end and we got a stop. They took it out on the sideline. Jason Tatum took the ball out, threw it to Marcus Smart in the short corner, he made a three. We came back down, missed another shot, and then Tatum came down and went 94 feet, did a euro-step and made a right hand layup. Timeout.

“There you go.”
James finished the game with just 15 points, shooting just 5-of-16 from the field. He also had seven of Cleveland’s nine turnovers in the game.
