And yet, the Cavs’ hold on fourth place in the East is now just a half game over Washington. They still trail Indiana for third by a half game.
LeBron James was sensational with 35 points, 14 boards, and one of his all-time great dunks. He became the sixth active player with 400 career double doubles, but he also committed a costly turnover (he had six total) with 2:20 left and blew a layup with 32 seconds to go and the Cavs down by just five.
“I thought he was tired maybe,” Lue said of James. “He had to do too much, play too many minutes, but when you’re shorthanded it’s gonna happen.”
