LeBron James Switches Nike Shoes In Game 4 Win Over Hawks

A solid LeBron James performance on both ends of the court helped lead his Cleveland Cavaliers to a win in Game 4 on Sunday night over the Atlanta Hawks, closing out the Cavs’ second round of the NBA playoffs and moving on to the Eastern Conference Finals. But it took him two pairs of shoes to get the job done.

During the first half of the game at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, the Nike-sponsored athlete wore a gray and black player’s edition colorway of his latest signature shoe, the LeBron 13 Elite. For the second half, James wore the same model but with a white and burgundy color palette.

James finished the night with 21 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals.

But James wasn’t the leading scorer for the Cavs on Sunday. That would be Kevin Love, who dropped 27 points on 9-of-25 shooting, including going 8-of-15 from 3-point range. The forward wore the Nike Hyperdunk 2015 in a navy, burgundy and yellow colorway in the win.
