LeBron scores 25 of his 43 vs the Cavs in the 1st quarter “I felt like I could have gone for 50 or 60”
On Tuesday night, LeBron continued his dominance of his old team by improving his record against the Cavs to 13-1. He came out on fire, hitting his first 6 shots and tying the entire Cavs team in points (25) at the end of the first quarter.
“I don’t know, it’s one of those zones,” James said, trying to explain how he made 10 of 11 shot and five 3-pointers in the dizzying opening quarter. “When I started the game off, I felt like I could have gone for 50 or 60.”
James had 31 points at halftime, 37 after three quarters and 43 (a career high against the Cavs) for the game but it was his defense, including some clutch blocks near the end of the game, that most impressed his coach.
“Probably my favorite play was the double block,” he said. “U.D. and L.J. going for that. It should be a layup. It should be a dunk. To make that play, those are the things I like to see.”
