LeBron James struggled for most of the first half against the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday. Coming into the game, LeBron was on a historical tear, becoming the first player in NBA history to shoot 60% from the field and score 30 or more points in six straight games. Yet late in the second quarter, the Thunder were holding LeBron under 50% shooting (3-of-7). And LeBron went into halftime with three personal fouls and a technical.
Somewhere between struggling from the field and picking up that technical foul, LBJ hit these four consecutive shots in just about 90 seconds over – in order – no one, Kevin Durant, Thabo Sefolosha and Serge Ibaka. LeBron ended up with 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting at the half to go along with eight rebounds, four assists and two steals. And the Heat lead the Thunder in OKC 63-46.
