Cavaliers vs Thunder results and full game highlights: LeBron James carries team on his old shoulders
LeBron James has proved once again that he remains the same dependable player that he used to be years ago. Cavaliersâ€™ 104-100 win over the Thunder showed that LeBron James retains his magical touch and that he can still carry the burden of his team on his shoulders and successfully too.
There is no denying the fact that without his heroics, Cavaliers wouldnâ€™t have managed the win over Thunders. How he managed the feat is something that will continue to bring laurels to him.
Almost everyone is unanimous that he singlehandedly won the match for his team as his teammates looked astounded. He fell one rebound shy of a triple-double, which would have been his first of the season, scoring 33 on 12-of-17 shooting with 11 assists and nine boards.
Notwithstanding the fact that he had said that he will not be working very hard and will be saving himself for the playoff, the 104-100 win over the Thunder saw him bring out the best in him. The 39:37 minutes played was second only to Durant, who finished with 25 points to go with 27 from Russell Westbrook and 23 from Serge Ibaka.
With the latest win, the Cavaliers (17-7) are clinging to first place in the East with a quartet of teams hot on their trail. James’ supporting cast included Matthew Dellavedova, who had a double-double (11 points, 10 assists). Kevin Love was a non-factor (11 points on 4-of-10 shooting), and it’s ever apparent the Cavs can’t get Kyrie Irving back soon enough.
