Cleveland Cavaliers' Tyronn Lue will ease his way back to coaching

Cleveland Cavaliers' Tyronn Lue will ease his way back to coaching

James finished with 27 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, adding another stellar performance to his MVP-worthy 15th National Basketball Association season.

The Pelicans haven't been at their best lately but their last two games were against two of the hottest teams in the league in Houston and Portland, so they were always going to struggle.

So, what took J.R.'s game to the next level?

Holiday scored a layup that cut the Cleveland lead to 105-102 and he had a look at a potential game-tying 3-pointer with 18.7 seconds remaining, but it bounced off the back of the rim.

James reached 10 or more points in his 867th consecutive game, breaking Michael Jordan's all-time record, and he outperformed fellow MVP candidate Anthony Davis in just about every way. The Cavaliers are below average defensively, ranking 26 in scoring defense by allowing 110 points per game.

This has been part of a wild ride for the 31-year-old, who has played for three teams in the past two seasons. He also sat out the first eight minutes of the second quarter when the Pelicans opened a 13-point lead. Their problems were then magnified when point guard George Hill suffered an apparent ankle injury with 6:22 left in the third after he stepped on a player's foot during a drive to the basket.

"It was right on time, especially for me", Smith said, according to ESPN.

That would be an unfair assessment to make for both the Cavs and Ty Lue.

The Cavaliers invited the UNC baseball team, who was in Charlotte after playing the 49ers the night before, to the team's brunch so that the Cavs could spend some time with UNC's team service dog, Remington. They're getting healthier off it, too.

Assistant Larry Drew has been serving as the interim coach during Lue's absence, and Cleveland has gone 5-1 during that span.

Lue would last reside on the sidelines during Cleveland's March 17 win over the Chicago Bulls.

You couple that with a less than 100% Davis, no Cousins, (maybe) no Rondo, and a hot Cleveland Cavaliers that may have its full roster on the court for the first time this season-you have the ingredients for a statement game for the Cavs.
