LeBron James throws down dunk while Michael Beasley runs away

However, in 2014 he made the decision to go back "home" as he departed for the Cavaliers before helping the city win a first-ever championship when they remarkably came back from 3-1 down to defeat the rampant Golden State Warriors 4-3 in the 2016 NBA Finals. The margin was only three, however, at halftime, and Detroit managed only 38 points over the final two quarters. "But it's a pretty cool thing".

James, who recorded 26 points and 11 assists in Monday's game, tells ESPN Ian Begley that he's known about Ntilikina for quite a while, as his close friend, Romeo Travis, played with the Belgian ball-handler overseas. Under certain circumstances, the teams could face each other in Philadelphia.

Michael Beasley had 20 points to lead the Knicks, who lost for the sixth time in seven games to fall to 28-53 on the season with one game left on their schedule. He led the team with 40 minutes played - another career-high. "I think any time you can win your division and have home court in the first round, I think it's a good accomplishment, especially with everything we've been through this year".

Here's what we learned from this win.

The direction that the season has gone in was not ideal for King James.

While the Cavaliers star could very likely be preparing for the end of yet another stint in Cleveland, his focus isn't straying far from the game.

- Cleveland Cavaliers fans have responded to a series of billboards that were put up in Cleveland to help recruit National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James to the Philadelphia 76ers this offseason. The 73-year-old says he sent James an encouraging text but never got a response. King, queen, princess.we're going to fight.

"He did a great job leading by example". "Same reaction I've had to every last one of them I've had this year". That's what we need from him.

For the Spurs, Mills scored 15 points, Rudy Gay 18 and Manu Ginobli 17 points as San Antonio beat Sacramento 98-85 to secure their 21st straight post-season appearance. "Him stepping up and playing the way he's played has been tremendous".

According to Slam Online, James was asked after the game if he "had any input on the design of the sneakers". As a kid, I didn't know I'd be able to compete against all of these guys, all of these teams.
