Cavaliers' LeBron James uses balanced attack in win Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Cavaliers forward LeBron James was able to utilize his full arsenal of weapons in Wednesday's 117-92 blowout win over the Nets. James scored 16 points on 5 of 13 shooting from the field, including 2 of 4 from 3-point range, and dished out seven assists in the contest.

Coach David Blatt was encouraged he didn't have to take on all the responsibility for scoring.

"You can't expect him to have huge games that he's had fairly regularly and you can't expect that all the time," he said. "The second thing is that it takes a lot of pressure off him going forward knowing that other guys can pick up the slack and carry it well."

James was happy to spread it around.

"We moved the ball tonight," James said. "Mozzy was unbelievable in the paint. Kyrie was great getting guys involved and J.R. was shooting the ball well. Everyone worked well together tonight."

(3/17/2015) Coach David Blatt recently said that the Cavaliers have "got to finish in second place" in the conference but LeBron James says he doesn't play for seeding, according to sheridanhoops.com.

“The coaching staff, if that’s what they want, but for me, I never play for seeding. I just play,” James said. “And wherever at the end of the season we land, I’m ready. Just get me in 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. So I’ve never in my 12-year career played for seeding. That’s just not how I work.”

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.”

James has started 58 of the Cavs' 69 games this season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
