MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James was tired Monday. Understandable, given he was coming off an effort the NBA hadn't seen in more than 50 years.
A day later, the Miami Heat were still marveling at what James did Sunday in Indiana. The MVP had 40 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists to help his team knot its Eastern Conference semifinal with the Pacers at two games apiece.
It was the first time anyone had that many points, rebounds and assists in a playoff game since Elgin Baylor in 1961. Heat star Dwyane Wade likened it to a video game.
James and the Heat host Game 5 on Tuesday night. They'll still be without Chris Bosh, who was in Miami's arena Monday for rehab of his strained abdominal muscle but remains sidelined.
