King James was absolutely awesome last night. This kid is only 24, but he is a veteran of round ball as anyone that follows Basketball knows.
34 points he scored. I think he showed us why he is the leagues MVP this year. From the Guardian link:
Leading 49-44 at halftime, Cleveland turned up the pressure, outscoring the Hawks 50-28. The visitors scored 11 points in the fourth quarter.I do love watching the playoffs which are also known as the second season..they last forevah! Lebron James gets better every year. His maturity surpasses many of the players that are a decade older than he is.
Mo Williams added 21 points and Delonte West had 13 for the Cavaliers, who host Game Two on Thursday.
Josh Smith had 22 points for Atlanta and Mike Bibby contributed 19.
"We competed for a half, but that wasn't good enough," said Hawks coach Mike Woodson.
Cleveland had not played since April 26 after sweeping the Detroit Pistons 4-0 in the opening round of the playoffs.
Atlanta was taken to a deciding Game Seven by the Miami Heat before winning the series 4-3 on Sunday.
Now, being a Celtics fan..its gonna be interesting for me this year. No KG, but the Celt's did win their series.
