The LeBron James sequel Saturday night was just as impressive as Wednesday's game in Cleveland. The superstar put the Cavs on his back as Cleveland rode to its fourth straight win 106-97.
Here's my audio recap of the Bulls-Cavs game:
James scored 41 against the Bulls for the second time in four days. He jacked up back to back threes in the final quarter and even though the Bulls narrowed the gap to two with just over two minuets to go, the Cavs were in command.
The Bulls effort was there. The Cavs simply took over in the fourth going on a 15-0 run, and with James on the bench Mo Williams and Danial Gibson took over.
Derrick Rose dished out nine assists. Ben Gordon did his best, especially in the first half to get the offense going. Andres Nocioni was superb shooting the three ball but one sensed the Bulls simply ran out of gas without Hinrich (thumb) and Gooden (ankle).
The Bulls now get ready for a Tuesday night encounter against the unbeaten Hawks. Hopefully, Larry Hughes will be ready to make his regular season debut from a pre-season shoulder injury.
Thoughts on the Bulls through the first seven games?????
Quick NBA notes....
The Wizards are bad...real bad. Orlando's Dwight Howard torched them for 31 points and 16 boards.
Shaq took Friday off. The Bucks were probably hoping he'd miss Saturday's game as well. No such luck. The "Big Cactus" led the Suns to victory.
Devin Harris poured in a game high 38 Friday in the Nets win over the Pistons. Word came before tipoff he'd miss Saturday's game against Indiana. Bottom line... Pacers win.
D-Wade with a monster game but the Hornets were better. David West is a winner... a flat out winner. Big game for the former Xavier star.
Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge guided the Blazers over Minnesota. Portland is so young and so good and they have a boatload of cap room over the next two years. Bad news for the Association.
Stay in touch... thanks for the read.
