A Movie, Some Yoga and a Finals Split for LeBron

Yogies, Stand UP! Yoga can make a difference! #letsgoheat #heatnation


SAN ANTONIO — LeBron James knew he had to do more than just get his body right between Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals.

His mind needed a little work as well.

So that’s why, without anyone else with him — no security, no friends, nobody, and that almost never happens — James quietly showed up at a theater a couple miles from where the Miami Heat were staying for a 5:40 p.m. showing Saturday of “Maleficent.” And it’s also why he and his regular massage therapist joined two strangers for a yoga class at 8 a.m. Sunday, where he focused on his breathing.

NBA Finals: How The Spurs Stack Up To The Heat

#HeatNation #LetsGoHeat! Miami, stand up!

CBS Miami

MIAMI (AP) — As anticipation builds for the NBA Finals rematch between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat lets take a look at how the two teams stack up against each other.


The series starts in San Antonio on Thursday night and the Spurs have never lost Game 1 of an NBA Finals. And Miami star LeBron James has never been part of a Game 1 road victory, in any round.

Advantage, Spurs?

San Antonio — which has never played an NBA Finals game while facing a deficit in the series — has won each of its five Game 1’s in the title round, doing so by an average of 10.4 points per game.

Including his time in Cleveland, James has been on teams that opened playoff series on the road seven times. They’re 0-7, losing by an average of 12.3 points.
