It was nice to finally see big Z in the game in the fourth quarter. He's the team's second best player and shouldn't be sitting on the bench at the end of the game like he usually does.

There's no player in the league right now and few in basketball history who do so much with a bunch of B-or-worse-level players around him. I can only think back to when Larry Bird carried Indiana State University, inconsequential before and invisible since, all the way to the NCAA championship game.
LeBron is a freak. Watch him, appreciate him, you'll not see his like often if ever in your sports-watching career. It's awfully easy to sit in your recliner watching the game on TV then make your way to the computer to tap out criticisms. But to play like LeBron -- sublime.

Overall game--defense,rebounding,playi ng in the clutch,Lebron is 15 to 20% better than last year. That is scary considering his play last year. At 23,where is his ceiling ? I was fortunate to watch the greatest football player of all time playing for my team. Lebron is going to be seen as basketball's "Jim Brown".

Gooden has got to go, one way or the other. Its not just the offensive inconsistencies, but he is so slow on D that he hurts the team. Take that cat thats living on your face out of town with ya...hurry back Andy!!!

4 min to go i turned the game off and went up stairs. about 1o min later i turned my tv on in my bedroom to see 5 seconds left and the cavs down by one. lebron is sick. im glad he didnt try to shoot a fade away 3 pointer and took it to the rim llke he should.

Four others helped him hold the Blazers, on their home court, to 83 points including two in the last three minutes or so. Just enjoy what you are watching and realize that Cavs fans were envious as we watched MJ do this for years (and as an aside, don't you just love the Bulls' slide this year?!)

Cavs could not adjust to loss of AV. No one stepped-up but James. I guess Jones and Simmons are not the answer. Larry "2for12" Hughes took a few steps back.

Why would any team want any of the Cavs you don't want to be on this team (Hughes, Marshall, et al)? Cavs would have to offer 1st drafts pick through 2015.

15 to 25 % better than last year? Wow think about that. what's amazing is the ease he floats into other positions on the floor both defensively and offensively. He could not do that in the past. In the 4th qtr. he starting to cover the best player and he is shutting him down. Kobbe sunday and Roy last night. Roy reminds me of a young ray allen that plays defense. he is good and has a very fluid style. Kobe is supposed to be better than Lebron but Bron shut him down. thind about how hard is to cover different positions. who else can do it? bron can cover Dirk, Garnett, Pierce, Kobbe and still cover a bigger point guard.

Great game again with LeBoob doing all the playiong. Now if cheap a$$ Ferry could only get Kidd to be the point guard by the all star game. The Cavs might have a chance at the finals and the NBA championship.
If you are such a Cavs fan then get off the "LeBoob" thing already. What is your problem anyway? Clearly he is the best player in the NBA and all you can do is call him names.

the cav's shouldn't get used to win games like that because they'll think they just have to relax and wait for the fourth quarter and it ain't be a win every time!!but well james is unbelievable...GO CAV'S
