Leah Still Hangs Out With LeBron James After Game

Jan 09, 2016, 23:50

Irving stepped into a 3-pointer from 30 feet in the first half, then spun past two defenders Euro-stepped his way to the basket early in the fourth quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' 122-100 victory against the Raptors.

Watch out NBA, Kyrie Irving is starting to look like his former self. The Cavs made 17 3-pointers (J.R. Smith had eight of them) and they shot 55 percent.

"He's the best point guard in our league for me", he told Clifton. "But until we turn it on defensively, we're kidding ourselves".

Garrett Temple scored 21 points and John Wall had 20 for the Wizards, who were playing without Kris Humphries, DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden.

George, who scored at least 31 points in his previous three games, shot 5 of 13 but led a second-quarter rally that put the Pacers ahead for good.

James, who scored a game-high 34 points, admitted after the Cavs' win that he was motivated to put on a show for his special fan of his in attendance.

Washington started the game strong, racing out to a 13-8 lead and keeping the game close until the end of the second quarter.

James helped stake the Cavaliers (24-9) to an 18-point lead by hitting all four of his 3-pointers less than four minutes into the third quarter.

The Raptors beat the Cavs at Toronto in late November when Cleveland was missing half of its rotation. Things changed dramatically, in large part to Irving, who continues to work his way back from offseason knee surgery. You could probably make a case for any of the top 20 players right now and maybe 10 other guys that they could one day be in the MVP discussion.

Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas had 22 points and 11 rebounds as the Raptors defeated Brooklyn 91-74, the Nets' eighth straight home loss.

The Pistons, winning despite a season-low five rebounds by foul-ridden center Andre Drummond, trailed 73-60 with 3:18 left in the third quarter. Like Iverson, Irving is a point guard on the court because it's the only position he's physically big enough to play.

Chris Bosh had 28 points and five rebounds for the Heat. "It's a team who beat us really good, and we remember that, so we look forward to trying to get them on their home floor like they got us".

"I knew she was going to be there tonight, and her and Zhuri, my baby girl, are my two favorite women in the world", James said after the game, according to ESPN. "I've got a daughter, and also, being a father, seeing what Devon was going through at the time, to be able to keep his strength and composure when his daughter was going through what she was going through, it just resonated". But James believes Irving should be an All-Star regardless of the season's sample size.

After Irving scored 32 points against the Wizards to lead Cleveland to a 121-115 victory, even Blatt couldn't contain his excitement over what was taking place.

Even though I don't think it will be easy, mainly because of the depth of the east this year, I expect the Cavs to return to the finals this year with the Spurs, Warriors or Thunder waiting on them.
