WATCH: Once Again, LeBron Refuses To Take Final Shot With A Chance To Win

After trailing by as much as 18 late in the third quarter, the Miami Heat rallied in Utah to take a two point lead with just 14 seconds remaining thanks in large part to 17 points by LeBron James in the fourth quarter, including this Bird-like three-pointer (it was later ruled a two-pointer).

But after Dwyane Wade had a dumb foul on Devin Harris, giving him a three-point play and the Jazz a one point lead, LeBron found himself with the ball in his hands, down one, and just 4.5 seconds remaining.

After the criticism he received at last week’s All-Star game, you would think there is no way LeBron would pass on a chance to win the game. You would be wrong. Without even looking for a shot, LeBron took one dribble and then dished-off to Udonis Haslem, who missed the 15-footer and the Heat went home losers.
