Lebron single handedly gave the Celtics their 2nd loss on the season. King James poured in 38 points and added 13 assists to beat the Celtics 109-104.
“We don’t want any tag,” James said. “We don’t want any Big 3 or whatever. We just go out there and do our job. Z is playing career basketball right now, Drew is getting better, and I’m going to do what I have to do for us to win, of course.”
I’m sorry to tell you Lebron. But the only tag you are getting is “KING JAMES”.
The season started poorly for the Cleveland Cavs, and LeBron James.
On Halloween, the Cavs were blown out at home by the Western Conference power, Dallas Mavericks, 92-74. LeBron was cold to start the year, going 2-11 from the field, and only scoring 10 points in 36 minutes. Dallas’ Jason Terry scored a team high 24 points to lead the Mavericks to a 1-0 record.

LeBron played 44 minutes, hitting 13 of 28 shots from the field, including 3 of 5 from three point, and 16 of 22 from the free throw line. He also added 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 steals to go with his team high 45 points.
For the Knicks Zach Randolph scored 21 points, and Jamaal Crawford added 25.
This week- the Cavs will be busy with games in Phoenix(Sunday), Golden State(Tuesday), Utah(Wednesday) and Sacramento(Friday). Let’s hope the Cavs can win on the road!
Lebron basically carried team USA in the first half Wednesday night. Going 11-11 from the field and making all 4 3pointers. Dominated scoring 26 points leading the US to a huge win over Uruguay. He came up just shy of the record 28 points scored by AI and Carmello in previous games. Nice work King James!!!
