Rashard Lewis to start for Miami Heat in Game 4

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra used his third different starting lineup in four games in the Eastern Conference finals, amid the absence of key reserve center Chris Andersen.

With Andersen missing Game 4 with a left thigh bruise, Spoelstra moved forward Rashard Lewis into the starting lineup in place of Udonis Haslem.

Going into Monday’s game, the Heat had been outscored by 37 points in 34 minutes when Chris Bosh and Haslem were on the court together in this series. So Spoelstra opted for something different, allowing Haslem to replace Andersen as his first power rotation player off the bench, in a report by the Miami Herald.

James said he grinned when he heard that Lance Stephenson said James showed “a sign of weakness” by responding to Stephenson’s trash-talking during Game 3.

James had no additional comment, but conceded that in general, these types of comments can “help at times when you’re doubted” and “you can use it as motivation.”

But “I’ve smiled and laughed at it a lot as well,” he said. “It depends what kind of mood I’m in. … I don’t need much motivation.”

Asked before the game whether Stephenson’s comments would create a monster out of James, Pacers forward David West said: “More than what he is? I don’t know.”

Pacers coach Frank Vogel predicted Stephenson’s comments would have no effect in Game 4.
“I don’t think LeBron, Dwyane Wade are going to play any harder than they’re already playing,” Vogel said.

Spoelstra said he would not discourage his players from trash-talking and “I don’t think it has any impact on the outcome.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
