2012 NBA Finals: LeBron James Expects To Play Game 5

Hardly surprising news, but Miami Heat superstar LeBron James expects to play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, as the Miami Heat look to clinch the NBA title over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.

James was unable to finish Game 4 because of leg cramps, and it was quite clear that James was in pain toward the end of the game, as he was visibly limping. James, though, expects to be fine by Thursday night.

"I feel a lot better than I did last night, that's clear," said James, who had 26 points, nine rebounds and 12 assists in Game 4. "I'm still a little sore because of the muscles being at an intense level -- very tight. ... I should be fine."

James will be looking to exorcise his demons on Thursday night and capture his first NBA title, so it's certainly not surprising that he's expecting to suit up.
