LeBron James | 18 points, 6 assists, 7 rebounds, 1 steal
On the campus of The Ohio State University, LeBron’s favorite university, the Cavaliers took the court in the Value City Arena for another pre-season matchup. The Cavaliers treated the fans to their first look at a starting line-up that consisted of LeBron, Kevin Love, and Kyrie Irving. The Cavaliers would get off to a hot start in the 1st quarter but cool down a bit as Derrick Rose and the Bulls began to take control of the game. Entering into the 3rd quarter that control would be swung back into the Cavaliers’ advantage as stellar defense by LeBron and Kyrie forced a couple of turnovers to give the Cavaliers a 10 point lead going into the 4th quarter. LeBron would play into the 4th quarter for the first time this pre-season and the Cavaliers would go on to close out the Bulls 107 – 98. LeBron would finish with 18 points and 6 assists in the Cavaliers’ win.
The Cavaliers will travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday, October 22nd at 8:00 PM. LeBron stated in a post-game interview that he will not play in Memphis on Wednesday.
