This isn't the first time James has mentioned the possibility of hanging around in the NBA if his son has the chance to play basketball at that level. For the fifth time this season, the Cavs held an opponent to under.400 shooting from the field, as Phoenix shot 39-98 (.388), including just 6-32 (.188) from beyond the arc. James made five of his seven free throws and finished the period with seven points, five rebounds and three assists. Korver hit back-to-back from long distance in the final 90 seconds of the second quarter to lift the Cavaliers to a 68-52 lead at halftime.
OH HELLO: With the Lakers up 16 points in the fourth quarter, Magic spent a timeout greeting James' agent, Rich Paul, and his longtime manager, Maverick Carter, at their courtside seats. Cleveland has now made 12 threes or more in five-straight games (since March 5). Specific to Tuesday's triple-double performance (and team win over the Suns), what's new? It was one of the few highlights of a breezy 129-107 Cavs win against the Western Conference bottom-feeder during which LeBron logged his 14th triple-double of the season. To people who don't follow sports, that might sound like gibberish so I'll give you the simplified version: A triple double means achieving double digits in three different statistical categories in a single game (for example, scoring more than 10 points).
Pelicans 119, Hornets 115: Anthony Davis had 31 points and 14 rebounds, and host New Orleans defeated Charlotte.
His squad is now fighting for playoff positioning in the East. "They thought they could do it on their own and they realized they can't". The Cavs are 0.5 games behind the Pacers now.
LeBron James and the Cavaliers have had an up-and-down season.
Status Update: (Blazers) - None to report. The Cavaliers are the only current playoff team in the bottom third of the league in defensive rating. Thompson, as he was talking to cleveland.com for this story while James was protesting, reminded James of what happened in the 2015 game.
