MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James planned to spend a large part of Saturday studying film, looking for any edge that the Miami Heat may use against the Boston Celtics.
Film from this season, that is.
No need to watch the Celtics inflicting past playoff wounds on him. Those remain fresh — and time has not yet healed them.
The inability to beat Boston is one of the biggest reasons why James is now wearing a Miami Heat uniform. He’ll get a third attempt to top the Celtics in a postseason series starting Sunday when the teams collide in Game 1 of what may easily become an epic Eastern Conference semifinal.
“It is personal,” James said Saturday as the Heat finished practice. “It is. Absolutely right. You don’t want to keeping getting beat by the same team, the same team keep sending you home to plan a vacation. So it is personal.”
The Celtics expected him to say nothing less.
“It would be personal for me,” Boston forward Paul Pierce said. “I’m sure he’s going to take it personal and you’ve got to expect his best.”
