Outside of a three-game slide last week, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been rolling past opponents this season.
CLEVELAND — LeBron James moved up the basketball ranks again Friday, passing Elvin Hayes for ninth on the all-time scoring list, but it was the play of Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving that he had something to say about.
“They’ve been playing probably the best basketball of their careers thus far,” James said after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 114-84 win over the Miami Heat.
“He’s the Kevin Love of old, and this is everything we expected out of him,” James said. “That’s what we want out of him. But there’s no added pressure for him. He’s going out and just playing his game right now. He’s shooting the ball extremely well. He’s rebounding at a high clip, and he’s at a point where he’s just comfortable with everything, and it’s great to have him.”
