JR Smith knows the Cleveland Cavaliers have to take some pressure off LeBron James, and he acknowledged as much Thursday. 

“We have to ramp it up,” Smith said, according to ESPN.com’s Dave McMenamin. “We’re playing too slow. We’re making Bron play hero ball, which is tough to do, especially in the Eastern Conference Finals. We got to help him. With that said, we have to give him an opportunity to make him feel confident to give us the ball so we can make the right plays. We got to help him and he’s got to help us.”
