The return of LeBron James. An event that an entire city had been waiting for since the announcement, on 11 July, the return of the chosen one. But the king James has missed his homecoming on all the plans : the Cavs were beaten at home against the Knicks (95-90) and James has produced one of the worst performances of his career.
This is the first time in his entire career at the NBA that James loses more than eight balloons, marks less than 20 points and achieves less than five assists at a time.
Against him, Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks’s franchise player, scored 25 points and gave 6 assists, to lead his team to the victory. The number seven was helped by a good Iman Shumpert (12 points) and an interesting Shane Larkin at the organization of the “triangle game”, wanted by the president Phil Jackson.
Kevin Love who played his first match with cavs scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. This match showed the birth of one of the futur big two of the NBA with Lebron James.
This evening the Cavs move to Chicago to face the team of Derrick Rose who won against New York (104-80) on Wednesday.
