LeBron James did his best to get his team revving on all cylinders in Tuesday's Game 1 loss to the Blazers, exploding for a monstrous triple-double with 23 points, 17 rebounds and 16 assists.
LBJ shot 9-of-20 from the field and was a poor 4-of-7 from the free throw line in this one, adding one triple, one steal and four turnovers to the box. The Blazers are riding high on a wave of momentum from the seeding games, so it'll clearly take more than a killer line from the King to put them away. Thanks to this win, the Blazers were able to steal the homecourt advantage in this first-round playoff series, which should prove to be one hell of an exciting and competitive affair.
