In the 3rd quarter, LeBron James went to the floor after banging his leg into a Bobcats player.

James stayed down.

Heat trainer Jay Sabol sprayed LeBron's leg during a Heat timeout.

James stayed in the game.

He then got hot, knocking down jumpers and a break-away slam dunk.

James finished with 31 points, 18 after his injury.

Dwyane Wade added 15.

Chris Bosh hit clutch shots down the stretch and finished with 17 points.

Miami will face the winner of the Brooklyn/Toronto series.
