James finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists.
Kyrie Irving added 26 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 128-96 win against the visiting Detroit Pistons.
Per the AP:
James picked up his 10th triple-double of the season and third in the last four games at the 3:45 mark of the third quarter and played only 28 minutes.
Cleveland’s hot shooting buried Detroit early. The Cavaliers made their first 10 3-pointers and started by hitting 22 of 25 shots for a 60-33 lead early in the second quarter.
“They were great and we were terrible,” Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy. “That’s how you get a lopsided game.”
