Fight to finish

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Cavs forward LeBron James was leading the league in scoring coming into Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

However, he was held to 16 points on 5 of 20 shooting.

That allowed Heat guard Dwyane Wade to leap frog past him in the scoring race. After Sunday's games, Wade is first at 28.26 points per game. James is second at 28.2.

Wade has 1,413 points in 50 games this season, while James has 1,382 in 49.

It will likely go down to the wire.

James led the league in scoring last year at 30 per game.


The Cavs have made 10 or more 3-pointers in 11 of their last 14 games, including an 11-for-23 performance on Sunday.

They are shooting 45.8 percent from behind the arc in their last 14 games (142 of 310).


Guard Mo Williams had 19 points and four assists on Sunday. In his last four home games, he's averaging 25.3 points and shooting 60.7 percent from behind the arc (17 of 28).
