LeBron James has insisted that the Miami Heat do not rely on him to win games following their third defeat in the NBA Finals.

The two-time defending champions trail the San Antonio Spurs 3-1, leaving them needing to win the three remaining games to retain the title.

The forward told ESPN: "It's not all on my shoulders. It's not. I understand I get a lot of the limelight in the press and all that, but it's not all on my shoulders.

"I take a lot of it, but I do it for my teammates, and I want them to put a lot of pressure on me in that sense. The series is not over. We've got guys with too much pride [to] even start thinking about that."

The fifth game of the series takes place tomorrow evening.
