LeBron James played 38 minutes during which he had 26 points, nine rebounds and eight assists, helping the Los Angeles Lakers defeat the Denver Nuggets 114-108 in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.
After the game, LeBron was asked how head coach Frank Vogel manages his minutes. The 35-year-old superstar said he never feels tired when he is in the game.
“I don’t reserve any energy. When I’m on the floor, I give all I got. If I need a break, I aks for a break. But coach has done a very good job of getting me out throughout the course of the game. I don’t look at it as a reserve tank,” James said.
“I feel like I got a pretty good energy when I’m on the floor every time. It’s winning time and I don’t have a chance or time to be feeling tired. I’m tired now. When there’re zeros on the clock that’s when I’m tired. I’m not tired when I’m in the game.”
