LeBron James Carried to the Bench, Spurs Win Game 1

LeBron James carried to the bench with cramps during Game 1 against San Antonio

LeBron James needed to be helped to the bench due to apparent leg cramps late in Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night. The air conditioning at the sweltering AT&T Center wasn’t working, which — major assumption warning — might have contributed to the cramps. James left the game midway through the fourth quarter with Miami ahead by two. The Spurs went on to win 110-95, closing the game on a 31-9 run.
