Lebron James scored 42 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers come back last night in Miami from an 11 point deficit in the fourth quarter to win 107-100. Mo Williams scored 15 out of his 30 points in the final seven minutes to lead the Cavs rally. Despite Dwayne scoring 41 for the Heat he was unable to get it going in the final minutes of the game. Miami shot 2 for 17 from the floor and turned the ball over four times in the last eight minutes.
Lebron James supplied the dagger with 43 seconds left, cruising past Jamario Moon for a huge right handed dunk to put Cleveland ahead 100-95. The Cavaliers are now 35 games over .500, marking the most successful season in their franchise history.
Lebron James reflecting on the game stated “It was Tough. It’s probably one of the better wins we’ve had all year.” This was the second time James and Wade scored 40 plus points in the same game. The last was on April 1, 2006 in Cleveland where James had 44 and Wade
44. “We don’t want each other to have bragging rights,” said James. “We definitely go at it when we play each other.
Wade and the Heat will be looking for revenge soon as the Heat travel to Cleveland to square off again.
