(LeBron) James would love to see teammate J.R. Smith break out of his shooting slump in Game 5.

“I don’t care how many shots he missed,” James said. “I don’t want his head to be down like it was in Game 4. It’s a make-or-miss league. He has to stay confident.

“He can miss a hundred shots. If they’re great looks, they’re drive-and-kicks, you shoot them with confidence. If he’s feeling confident about his ability, then I’m confident about it. As a competitor, once you lose confidence in yourself, then it’s really not much coming back from that. So if he’s confident in himself, he’ll be fine.”
