LeBron James led the Cavaliers in scoring on Thursday night, going 13-for-16 from the field (he hit his first 10 shots) for 30 points, while adding six boards, five assists and a steal in a disappointing loss to New Jersey.
King James has been in the media for all the wrong reasons lately, but his game hasn’t suffered. He has now scored 30 or more in two of his last three games after not breaking the plateau previously in the month of March. Meanwhile, the turbulence in the locker room seems to have taken a toll on the non-Lebrons (the Lebnons?), as Timofey Mosgov was the only other starter to score more points than field goals attempted. Kevin Love needed 14 shots to score 11 points; Kyrie Irving needed 22 (!) shots to score just 13; and J.R. Smith scraped for eight points on ten shots. Things are a little dicey in the Q.
