Around The NBA Playoffs: LeBron Steps Up, Clippers Kicked Out

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - MAY 20: LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat dunks against the Indiana Pacers on his way to a game-high 40 points in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on May 20, 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Heat defeated the Pacers 101-93.

LeBron turned in what some are calling perhaps his best postseason performance yet with 40 points and 18 rebounds in the Heat's win over the Pacers to even up the series 2-2.

These are the days that James is a force of nature, and Wade climbed alongside of him. These were extraordinary performances, but the way that the Pacers hung tough, the way they wouldn't go away, you wonder if Miami can win without a galaxial performance out of James. He needed everything with him to deliver on Sunday, and rest assured, the Pacers will return to pounding the Heat inside.

Also, the Spurs just keep winning. It is entirely possible that Tim Duncan really is a robot and has a digital link to his coach. Either way, the Clippers had their best season in a long time and still managed to exit in a Clippers like fashion.

The Clippers' dark lord owner sat in stoic silence at his center court seat, his mood as black as the sweatsuit, socks and sandals that he wore. He had just witnessed the intersection of success and failure all at once, this postseason point still qualifying as unprecedented progress but the way in which it all ended clearly leaving him confounded.
