The Miami Heat came from behind to defeat the Indiana Pacers in a game that had a playoff-like atmosphere.
James played despite rolling his ankle on Monday.
“I’m nowhere near 100 percent … but I’m good enough where I can be productive,” James said. “If I felt like I was going to hurt the team tonight, I wouldn’t be playing.”
James even admitted that he had extra "incentive" to play against the Pacers despite lingering soreness in the ankle with homecourt advantage in the Eastern Conference Playoffs at stake.
