Cavs F LeBron James scores 20 in playoff win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Cavaliers forward LeBron James scored 20 points on 8 of 18 shooting in Sunday's 113-100 Game 1 win over the Celtics. 

James also dished out seven assists and brought down six rebounds in 42 minutes of playing time. James also went 1 for 3 from the free-throw line. 

He also posted two steals, one block and committed five turnovers. 


Cavaliers G J.R. Smith bares his soul in written article


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith refuted his reputation as selfish, compared former teammate Carmelo Anthony with LeBron James and defended embattled Cleveland forward Kevin Love in an article he wrote himself for The Cauldron.

Smith also came across as thoughtful in expressing his feelings about a shocking midseason that sent him from New York to Cleveland. But it was his defense of his character that stood out in the long piece.

"There have been unfair rumors that lead people to have misconceptions about me: that I don't care; that I don't take my job seriously; that I'm not committed to my craft," Smith wrote. "It's unfortunate, but people have been saying this about me during my entire career. It obviously bothers me and naturally would bother anyone to feel that people don't take you serious as a person. ... (after getting to know me) someone tells me I am a completely different person than who they perceived me to be."

Smith went on to write that Anthony is a pure scorer who has never had the luxury to play alongside the quality players afforded James or Kobe Bryant, but that he yearns to win as much as the other two. Smith concluded his piece by defending Love, whose numbers have fallen off considerably this year after a trade brought him from Minnesota.

"Forget what anyone says, Kevin Love is the ultimate teammate," Smith wrote. "He isn't the most athletic player out there - actually, Kevin is like that guy you see in a 40-and-up league just killing it because he knows the game better than anyone else out there. Mentally, Love is just in another stratosphere when it comes to understanding basketball. Plus, not only is he an underrated shooter who can knock down shots better than half the guards in the league, he is also the best rebounder I have played with, hands down."

We need to keep guys in rhythm, we need to keep guys game-sharp. If there's the opportunity to rest somebody we will, but that's not the first priority right now. Our first priority is to keep playing good basketball, to keep ourselves sharp, to stay ready and to get ourselves in the kind of rhythm we're going to need going into the playoffs."

Get me in the playoffs, I feel like I can win on anybody’s floor. I feel like I can win at home. I’m that confident in my ability and our team’s ability.

James played with a tweaked right knee, sore lower back and sprained right wrist in Monday's loss in Miami.

“Health. Health and chemistry. We got to continue to build our chemistry," James said. We’re a young group, as far as cohesiveness on the floor. So we got to continue to build that, and we got to be healthy during the playoffs.”
