I was sitting on Press Row for the Blazers game with Cleveland knowing that in the final few minutes something special could happen. It was the Blazers 9th consecutive 20 thousand plus sellout and as most fans know...most of those games have been great down the stretch.

Would the Blazers hold on and win again...or would Lebron James rally the red hot Cavs. Either way it would be something special. In the end...the man known as "King James" outscored the Blazers all by himself in the 4th qtr and scored with 3 tenths of a second to go.
Cavs win 84-83. Lebron finished with 37 pts, 14 rebs and 4 assists. Wow!

Lebron is 6-8 and about 255 pounds and the scary thing for the rest of the NBA...he is getting better. James is big and quick. When he has it going...he's almost unstoppable. Sunday, he put 41 on the Lakers and hit a late jumper over Kobe...Cavs win by three.

By the way, the ACE, Sports Photographer Brian Warner, and I talked with Lebron before the game in the Locker room. You can see that interview on Sports Sunday at 11:35pm.

It was an exciting night of NBA Basketball. Speaking of 3's...how about 3D. Back to back nights of excitement for me. Saw the new U2 3D movie at the Bridgeport IMAX. It is probably the best concert movie I've ever seen.
