James scored 43 points and had 14 assists on Thursday night, helping the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 2-0 lead over the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. James had help from Kevin Love, who had 31 points and 11 rebounds, but at other times over the last few weeks he has appeared to beat teams on his own: he is averaging 34.4 points, 9.9 rebounds and 9.0 assists per game in these playoffs.

Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic praised the way James brings his team-mates into the game. “I know LeBron hit some crazy shots but the way he gets everyone involved and how he sets them up for good looks and looks for mismatches is amazing. [His] bball IQ is out of this world,” wrote Vucevic on Twitter.In Thursday night’s other game, the injury-depleted Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers and lead their series 2-0. … we have a small favour to ask.

Love said that he had a feeling before Thursday’s game that James would produce something special. “This morning you could just sense it,” Love said. “He knew what was at stake, he knew us getting another win here was going to be huge for us. He came out and he played that way from the jump. You could just sense that he was going to have a special night.” LeBron James Support The Guardian Since you’re here… Reuse this content Share on Twitterlast_img read more
