LeBron James filled up the stat sheet and stuffed his owners’ fantasy stockings on Christmas day as he led the Cavaliers in a 108-109 win over the Golden State Warriors. He dropped 31 points, hit the glass for 13 boards, handed out four dimes, hit four triples, got two steals, and a block.
James bounced back from a 19-point outing against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday. While his full effort was not needed then, he definitely turned up the heat on Christmas against the Warriors. Both the Cavs and James are having a great season. The only drawback hanging over his head is the potential for rest days down the stretch as the Cavaliers are projected to lock down the number one seed in the Eastern Conference early on.
