DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — There wasn't much else LeBron James could do after Miami lost the Eastern Conference finals opener to Chicago.

He had to shrug it off and look ahead to Game 2 on Wednesday night. James says the Heat are "looking forward to the challenge."

It would help if Miami gets more from James and Dwyane Wade, who both struggled against one of the league's stingiest defenses. James finished with 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting and Wade had 18 points, with just six in the second half.
