LeBron James was the catalyst for the Miami Heat throughout their blowout Game 2 victory over San Antonio, opting to take a more passive role offensively while getting the rest of his team involved. Mario Chalmers took the lead role in the scoring department while Mike Miller and Ray Allen started hitting shots, as LeBron set screens and attracted double-teams.
Though he didn't appear to be in-rhythm, LeBron was simply biding his time.The game was tired heading into the fourth quarter but didn't stay that way for long. The Heat went on a 30-5 blitz after LeBron viciously rejected Tiago Splitter, feuling a Ray Allen three and a Spurs turnover that led to a classic LeBron James dunk on the break. It was on from there, and Miami cruised to a 103-84 win.
"I was like, 'hey just make a play'"– LeBron on 'The Block'. Yeah, you made a play alright. You nearly broke Twitter as a result.

That LeBron James block on Tiago Splitter… There should be a 7-foot chalk outline underneath the basket. Murderous.

In a month, nobody's going to remember anything about LeBron's performance in this game besides that block. With good reason.
