LeBron James had to leave Game 1 late in the fourth quarter with severe cramping, needing to be carried off the floor to the bench.
James attempted to reenter the game, but Erik Spoelstra didn't allow him with the game slipping away.
"I was going to try to give it a go and Spo said no. It sucks at this point in time in the season. You know, after I made that layup we was down two and, you know, as well as they played we still had a chance. You know, after I came out of the game, they kinda took off. And it was frustrating sitting out and not be able to help our team."
James' whole left leg was cramping.
"The best option for me to do was not to move. I tried and any little step or nudge, it would get worse. It would lock up worse and my muscles spasmed 10 out of 10. Best thing for me to do was just not to move, and, you know, it was frustrating."
