There are, of course, problems with Brandon Bass guarding LeBron James. James is so quick off the ball that Bass can hardly keep up. On one early play, LeBron sprung around a pindown screen to get free space in the lane. It set up a wide open Shane Battier three-pointer as Boston rotated. That can’t happen too much more if Boston is to win.
Battier, by the way, has two early threes.
