James, Love lead Cavs past Knicks to 50th win, Central title

11 Avril 2018

In the Cavaliers game against the Knicks in New York Monday, James wore shoes saying "I'm King".

Last year's Cavaliers roster featured a almost impossible one-two perimeter punch to contain between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

LeBron James is beginning to see what New York Knicks fans will ideally soon notice: Frank Ntilikina has the tools to be special. "Prove it", along with the hashtag, #KingJamesNYC18.

He ended the night with 26 points, 11 assists, six boards, and a steal. Last season, James sat eight games, and Cleveland went 0-8 when he rested.

"I mean, listen, throughout a long season if you're able to accomplish feats no matter what's going on, you should always try to appreciate it, try to take time". On the season, the Cavs are now 29-11 at home (tied for fifth-best in NBA) and can win 30 home games in a single season for the 13th time in franchise history on Wednesday evening.

"I heard about it", James said at the morning shootaround at the Garden on Monday. The closest he came was the 2008-2009 season, when he appeared in all but one regular-season game before eventually losing to the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals.

KNICKS: Hornacek said Hardaway and Kanter most likely wouldn't play Wednesday, but didn't rule it out. I think every game, he gets the opportunity to play more and he gets comfortable with the National Basketball Association game. And if he does, he will have played in all 82 games for the first time in his career.

Detroit was without injured stars Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin for its home finale, but the Pistons still led by 17 in the first half. In fact, the Cavs actually have one of the absolute worst defenses in the league. This season this picture is far from the same, with Cleveland now occupying the four-seed and often requiring James to put the team on his back to just scrape through games against lesser teams.

"Trust our future because we might have a really bright future in New York", Ntilikina said. "I don't care what you call yourself".
