LeBron James was forced the leave the floor during a crucial fourth quarter stretch of Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. James appeared to cramp up and was badly dragging his leg, forcing Erik Spoelstra to call a timeout and take the MVP out of the game. James was on the sideline, drinking fluids and having ice rubbed on his quad. He sat out for a few plays, trying to stretch out the cramps and get back in the game with under five minutes to play. He returned to the floor and hit an absolute dagger three-pointer with the game tied at 94.
