LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers — Welcomed Back By Huge Stars

During the game LeBron scored 17 points, four assists and five rebounds. According to USA Today, LeBron said that he did his best to not let the buildup of the night get to him. “I just tried to stay focused and maintain. … Obviously, it was a special night.” He also revealed that he believes his eight turnovers made the team struggle.
“I hate turning the ball over. My turnovers led to our team struggling on the defensive end,” James said. “We gave up too many shots were we didn’t contest. Sometimes, defense wins games but sometimes the offense can take from the defense, and that’s what happened. We started turning the ball over.”
Cavaliers coach David Blatt said,”I thought we came out with energy and we started well. We began the game in the fashion we had hoped to play it,” the site reports. “Then we spiked at a certain point … and dropped off the map. … We got stagnant without question. We’re good when we move the ball. We’re really good.”
