CHICAGO — LeBron James insisted there was nothing unusual about the shot, that he’s perfectly comfortable taking it. Never mind that he unleashed it from nearly halfcourt.
James’ jumper — from a spot that requires a heave for many players — was just part of the show on a day when he delivered his fifth career postseason triple-double with 37 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

“I’ve done some great things in the past, I’ll do some great things in the future,” he said. “But we’re in the present now, and I’m feeling pretty good.”
