No broken bones

LeBron James had X-rays taken after the game on his right hand. He had ice on it for quite some time after the game, which stretched his post-game press conference appearance to almost 45 minutes. The Knicks team doctor checked out his hand.

Luckily for the Cavs, nothing was broken.

This comes one game after he was wearing ice on his left wrist after the Chicago game. He injured his left wrist in the Washington game.

-- The celebrities came out in droves for Friday's game at Madison Square Garden. Coming to the Garden, it's always fun to do a little star gazing. My personal favorite was former Yankees slugger Reggie Jackson. There were six members of the Yankees' World Series champion team on hand, including CC Sabathia, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Joba Chamberlain, Melky Cabrera and Robinson Cano.
-- Others on hand were Jay-Z, actor Chris Rock and former Knicks forwards Larry Johnson and Charles Oakley. Ex-Yankees outfielder Bernie Williams played the national anthem on his guitar.
-- LeBron James came to his pre-game press conference wearing "Steve Urkel-like" glasses. Why the new look? "I can't see," he said.
-- The Cavs scored 40 points in the first quarter, which tore the live out of this game. They shot 73 percent from the field.
