LeBron James scored an National Basketball Association season-high 57 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 130-122 win over the Washington Wizards on Friday night, helping the Cavs snap a four-game losing streak. Turnaround jumpers. Fadeaways. Most of it out of the post. "He still has it, if you guys didn't know that".
Things have been a mess around this team for more than a week.
Staring at a potential five-game losing streak and giving a conference rival like Washington a confidence boost to make someone like Beal actually believe his bold preseason promulgation should be motivation enough for the Cavs to start their turnaround.
"I'm happy to be on this side of the ball", Rose said. "So we knew he was feeling good and he carried us".
"Last year our offense saved us a lot", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.
The Wizards old friend Jae Crowder will be reinserted to start at the 5. "To see the look in his eye when he got it going, not wanting to come out of the game in the second half, you know, that's what he do".
Let's face it: Tristan Thompson straight robbed the Cleveland Cavaliers out of a couple of good games and his good relationship with LeBron James, and he's not almost as good as they expected him to be when they handed him that very lucrative extension. He's scored 26 or more points four times in 13 career games versus the Cavs. Love witnessed not only the 57 James notched against the Wizards, but was out there for Irving's 57 against the Spurs three seasons ago.

Like everything James does, it was clearly thought out and undoubtedly a reference to the nonstop talking the Wizards had directed at the Cavaliers, including on Friday, when Wall and Beal went on ESPN and made all kinds of braggadocious statements.
"(James) knew how important this game was for us, after losing four in a row.
"Pretty much feels like everything you throw up is going in", James said when asked about his performance.
Maybe this is the solution for the Cavs: Have James play out of his mind every night, and hope for the best. "He was special tonight". They won't get 57, but unless their defense comes together at one point in the coming weeks as they aim to correct the mistakes of the first two weeks, he'll still need to put up extraordinary offensive numbers to keep the ship afloat.
BULLS 105, MAGIC 83: Justin Holiday scored 19 points, and Robin Lopez had 11 points and 10 rebounds as Chicago won at Orlando, Florida.
Part of that is working in new players; unstable rotations; shots not falling; Thomas' absence; James missing most of training camp with a sprained ankle; incorporating more ball movement and player movement; injuries to Iman Shumpert and Tristan Thompson; and finding ways to make up for Kyrie Irving's production. "And so, every shot that I took it feels like it was going in, even when they were highly contested".
