LBJ playing at high level
All-Star forward LeBron James is playing at an MVP level right now and because of it, the Cavs have been in every game on the current West Coast trip.
The 6-foot-8, 250-pounder had 32 points, 15 rebounds, 13 assists, three steals and two blocks on Wednesday, as the Cavs dropped a 103-101 decision at Utah.
His 3-pointer with 6 seconds left knotted the score at 101. Jazz guard Deron Williams’ driving layup with 1.3 seconds left was the game-winner.
James’ display came on the heels of the Golden State game where he finished with 24 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists.
In the first three games of the trip, James is averaging 27.6 points, 11.3 rebounds, 10 assists, 3.0 blocks and 1.6 steals. He’s shooting 46.9 percent from the field (32 of 69), 45.5 percent from the 3-point line and 58.3 percent from the foul line (14 of 24).
The Cavs should be very competitive in each of the next two games – at Sacramento and the Los Angeles Clippers.
