LeBron James and his Cavalier teammates got routed last night in Miami. The Heat easily disposed of the Cavs by score of 122-101, but it was the Heat fans who may have delivered the biggest blow to LeBron. Late in the fourth quarter, American Airlines Arena was filled with perfectly synchronized chants of “LeBron Needs Riley.”
Heat fans were clearly rubbing in the fact that LeBron has been unable to win a championship anywhere but with Miami under Pat Riley’s leadership. Last night’s blowout and the chanting help set the stage for a potentially dramatic and emotional playoff series between Miami and Cleveland. The Cavs sit atop the Eastern Conference while the Heat are in the fourth position.
