“LeBron who?” were perhaps the reactions of the many Cavalier fans who attended the Q after Cleveland got away with a victory over former Cav LBJ and company. This one will always be remembered by the Cavs who got to knock-off LeBron. Basketball scores .
After blowing a 23-point lead, the Cavaliers fought back to defeat the Miami Heat 102-90 on Tuesday night, getting some ego boost against James, the franchise’s biggest star who made his second homecoming visit to Cleveland since bailing on them last summer.
Power forward J.J. Hickson finished the game with 21 points and Anthony Parker scored 20 as they became top performers during the game against the Heat. Last time these two teams meet, the Cavs got completely crushed by Miami 118-90 last winter. However, this time, it was the King who left the court down on his knees. The Ohio native superstar registered another triple double this season after scoring a total of 27 points, dishing out 12 dimes and pulling down 10 boards. Basketball odds.
The self-proclaimed King received another dose of severe booing from the fans who once celebrated all of his accomplishments but now hate him for betraying them.
Newly acquired veteran guard Baron Davis took part in Tuesday’s starting lineup for the first time since joining Cleveland in February’s trade deadline. Davis scored 10 points and provided leadership in the court.
On the other hand, there wasn’t the same hate heated environment on James’ first visit 4 months ago. The fans were hyped-up but not as angry toward James, who was booed every time he got the ball in his hands.
Cavs’ owner Dan Gilbert posted some messages against James on his Twitter account: “Not in our garage!!” making reference of Tuesday’s game in Cleveland.
With this loss, Miami is falling behind Chicago and Boston for the top 2 spots in the Eastern Conference standings and are now relegated to the 3rd-seed. On the Cavaliers’ side, their pride was on the line and they didn’t have much to prove since they are already disqualified for the upcoming playoffs. Basketball spreads.
