You just gotta admire LeBron James! Unfortunately, when he rolls into Portland, it comes at the expense of a Blazers victory. The Cavs would be a .500 team (at best) without James---he's that vital a player. In fact, the argument continues in our office, in fact, it's almost daily. Who's better right now? LeBron or Kobe? On Wednesday night, LeBron poured in 34 points, dished out 14 assists, and had 7 rebounds in Cleveland's 104-98 win. For those scoring at home, Kobe had his second triple-double in the last 3 games-- 18, 12, and 10 in a win over the Clippers.
So, what we have is the Cavaliers beating Portland for a 3rd straight time. Not the end of the world, but it still does sting just a bit.
