Heat vs. Bucks: LeBron Is Lord of the Rings; 20 Tweets That Tell the Story
Entering Tuesday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James made it clear that all this losing stuff isn't cute to him anymore, and he politely requests that his teammates help cut that shit out.
"We've been playing defensively like sh--, no doubt about it. I'm frustrated right now. We're 4-3," he said. LeBron, keeping it real, or keeping it "don't."
Lucky for the Heat, the Bucks were in town, prepared to pay for all the things people have done to hurt the back-to-back champions in the past week. LeBron had his best game of the season, scoring 33 in 33 minutes, and the Heat went back to its winning ways with a 118-95 win over Milwaukee.
Someone named Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 11 for the Bucks, so that's newsworthy on their side. Yup, not much else to say about them. Moving on.
Here are some of the best tweets from last night's game that pretty much sum it up quite nicely.
A few hours before the game, coach Erik Spoelstra informed everyone that UD and Shuttlesworth would be inactive, but unfortunately, it still wasn't time to unleash Greg Oden. Then he stared into the camera and mouthed, "SOON."
Heat clearly know fast-paced garbage time wouldn't be best for Oden, so Haslem listed as active even though he's sidelined by back spasms.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) November 12, 2013
