LeBron James hit 11-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 26 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and six turnovers in 44 minutes of Monday's surprising loss to the Pelicans.
This was LeBron's fourth triple-double of the season, but this was a tough loss for his team, facing a New Orleans team that featured Anthony Davis in street clothes with a quad injury. The Cavs are reeling right now, losing five of their last seven games, and while they're probably not too worried about it, our guess is they've gotten the wake up call and will get hot again, starting on Wednesday against the Kings.

LeBron James played 45 minutes during a 118-115 overtime loss to the Spurs on Saturday, scoring 29 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

That playing time matches his second-highest minute total on the season with Kyrie Irving also in that neighborhood with 41 minutes. After the game, coach Ty Lue was asked about the possibility of rest in New Orleans on Monday. "We'll see how they feel," Lue said about LeBron and Kyrie. The Cavs aren't exactly playing winning ball lately, going just 4-5 in their last nine games. James has actually only been a third-round player in that span, but there's nothing to worry about here.
Jan 21 - 11:48 PM

LeBron James scored 21 points during a 118-103 win over the Suns on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, 15 assists, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers.

In the least surprising news of the day, LeBron was named to his 13th All-Star Team with his NBA-record 291 points in the event during his career. He is just one of five players to have that many All-Star nods and will likely pass Kobe Bryant's 18 in six years.
Jan 19 - 10:26 PM

LeBron James scored 20 points on 6-of-18 shooting in Monday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

He didn't have much help tonight, but LBJ didn't play up to his standards either. LeBron and Kyrie Irving combined to turn the ball over 12 times, and LeBron had a +/- rating of -32 which was the worst on the team. He added eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and a triple, but he will be in a prime spot to bounce back from this on Thursday vs. the Suns. Irving added 17 points, two assists, two rebounds, one steal and one triple.

The Cavaliers will not rest LeBron James, Kevin Love or Kyrie Irving on Monday vs. the Warriors according to ESPN.

Some within the Cavaliers' organization "briefly pondered sitting out the trio," but they decided against it because they want to "gain valuable repetition" against the Warriors. The owners of James, Irving and Love can deploy them with confidence.

LeBron James scored 16 points with two rebounds, 15 assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes during a 120-108 win over the Kings on Friday.

And the two-game losing streak is over. Those dimes match his season high and is just one off his career high, which was coincidentally against the Kings in 2013. Somewhat surprisingly off a two-game losing streak, LeBron only had a 19.5 usage rate tonight, which is his lowest of the season. LeBron gets a trip to Oracle Arena on Monday for a game that he says isn't against a rival. There's no reason to watch that, right?
Jan 14 - 2:18 AM

LeBron James scored 20 points during a 102-86 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday, adding 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

It's just the second losing streak of the season for the Cavs with a three-game losing streak ending on Dec. 2. James also passed Tim Hardaway Sr. for 15th on the all-time assists list in the NBA. Speaking of assists, LeBron's assists are down in January with just 5.3 per game. He'll get it turned around in no time.
Jan 12 - 1:20 AM

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Levin Love will play against the Blazers on Wednesday night.

There was some concern this game would be canceled, but it is reportedly a go. The Blazers landed in Portland at 12:55 PST, so their pre-game routines are going to be a mess. The Cavs also had travel issues last night.
Jan 11 - 4:23 PM

LeBron James is reportedly upset with his lack of free throw attempts this season.

James actually ranks in the top 10 in free throw attempts per game this season at 7.1, although it's worth noting that he's logging more minutes per game than everyone above him on that list (aside from Anthony Davis), and more field goal attempts per game than guys like James Harden and Jimmy Butler (with a majority of his shots coming in the restricted area). James feels that his immense size causes the refs to officiate him differently, and he may have a point.

Jan 11 - 12:54 PM

LeBron James hit 10-of-20 shots and three 3-pointers for 29 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals in 37 minutes of Tuesday's 100-92 loss to the Jazz.

This was just Cleveland's ninth loss of the season and the core starters all played pretty well. Kyrie Irving had 20 points and a nice stat line and Kevin Love added 12 points and nine rebounds, but the duo combined to hit just 9-of-32 shots, which was a big reason for the loss. Tristan Thompson added 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Cavs.
Jan 10 - 11:39 PM

LeBron James hit 11-of-17 shots for 28 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in Sunday’s 120-116 win over the Suns.

Tonight, James became the 14th player in NBA history to reach 10,000 career field goals. Kyrie Irving added 27 points, seven assists, two rebounds, and one steal and Kevin Love had 25 points, 10 rebounds, and one block, but they needed it all to escape with a road win.
Jan 8 - 11:57 PM

LeBron James scored 36 points in a 116-108 win over the Nets on Friday, adding nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and five turnovers in 35 minutes.

That day off has really got him going. Since resting on Dec. 26, James averaged 29.6 points, 7.6 boards, 7.8 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.4 treys on 53.3 percent fro the field. His team now has a three-game lead over the Raptors, so there could be some rest on the horizon with three road games from Sunday to Wednesday next week.
Jan 6 - 11:57 PM

LeBron James still wants the Cavs to add another point guard to the roster by the February trade deadline.

Even with the addition of sharpshooter Kyle Korver, LeBron doesn't believe the Cavs are done wheeling and dealing. And, if history is any indicator, King James usually gets what he wants. A few names mentioned in this ESPN article are Jarrett Jack, Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole. The Cavs are at their full limit of 15 players, which means that Jordan McRae may get waived in order to clear a roster spot.

LeBron James (illness) played 37 minutes vs. the Bulls, finishing a tough home loss with 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Kevin Love (illness) and Kyrie Irving (hamstring) were both unavailable tonight, so LBJ had the weight of the offense entirely on his shoulders. He stepped up admirably, hitting 12-of-21 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs, with one 3-pointer and one steal, but it wasn't enough to beat a more well-balanced attack from the Bulls. LeBron gets another day to rest before facing the Nets on Friday.
Jan 4 - 10:53 PM

LeBron James (illness) will play Wednesday vs. Chicago.

Kyrie Irving (hamstring) and Kevin Love (illness) will sit this one out, so James is going to extremely active on the offensive end and is certainly someone to consider in DFS with a favorable matchup against Chicago. Jordan McRae, DeAndre Liggins, Channing Frye and Tristan Thompson will join him in the starting five.
