Harder than it should have been

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Even though the Memphis Grizzlies have lost five in a row, they certainly didn't roll over for the Cavs on Wednesday at FedExForum.

The Cavs needed every one of LeBron James' 51 points to escape with a 132-124 win. It was the most points scored by the Cavs since Jan. 15, 1993, in a 132-120 victory over Indiana - 15 years to the day.

It was James' fourth career 50-point game. All have come on the road. It was the fourth time he's topped 40 points this year (the Cavs are 4-0).

They are 4-1 in overtime games this season. They've now won eight of their last 10 games to move two games over .500 (20-18).

They travel to San Antonio at 8:15 p.m. Thursday for their first appearance there since the NBA Finals. The game will be televised by TNT.
