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 said 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.”
