The Los Angeles Lakers earned a narrow win over the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Finals (102-96). LeBron James, who led the winners in scoring with 28 points, shared his thoughts about this year’s Finals.

LeBron compared it to a chess match because the Finals require to have his mind at a high level in order to read the game and make plays before they even seem possible.

“That’s the best part about it. It’s a chess match. When you get to this point in your career having your mind at a high level is so much more [important] than the physical. Because at this point we’re all great players. We’re all here for a reason. We’re in the Finals both teams, both conferences and anybody that is on the floor, they are on the floor for a reason,” James after the game.

“To be able to think through the game, see the adjustments and make plays before they even seem possible, that’s the best part for me personally.”
