MVP race is one for the ages. Best I've seen. Westbrook. LeBron. Curry. Harden. Wide open.
Westbrook is close to joining Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James as the toughest guys in the league to officiate. Always creates contact.
LeBron confirmed his back was stiff and he would get treatment (routine)
Steve Kerr on LeBron: “The best player on the planet for the last five years had a huge game against us.”
Steve Kerr on LeBron: "The best player on the planet for the last five years had a huge game against us"
Are the Cavs as good as any team in the league? LeBron: "We're as good as we want to be."
LeBron: "I got to be the MVP for these guys." Says he isn't concerned about league MVP discussion.
LeBron: "I was challenged by my coaches this morning. They wanted me to play in the post a little more & be aggressive."
Not sure if LeBron is getting treatment on his back, but game ended at 10:43 and we haven't seen him in LR yet
LeBron started the game with post play & driving the ball to the basket and then stepped out and started hitting 3's! What a performance?!
LeBron dominated the showdown vs. Stephen Curry and the Warriors tonight with his 42pts!
Draymond Green on LeBron: "We played great defense on him. But that's why he's probably the best player in the world."
I guess some still presume the Warriors shoot to win games? They've played D. Even with LBJ going nuts, CLE shot 46.8%. Decent, not crazy.
Red-hot Cavs, winners of 4 straight, in Indy Friday for the final time this year. LeBron was special tonight vs GSW, scored a season-best 42
Other than the Spurs, the GSWs are probably the team best equipped to defend LeBron. And he still did what he did tonight. Another level.
LBJ needed to score 42 against a struggling Splash Bros. The reality is both the Dubs and Cavs still need work.
Cavs' Kevin Love, smiling, on LeBron's performance: "It was alright."
LeBron James finishes with 42 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 1 block in the Cavaliers' 110-99 win over the Warriors.

So, should LeBron officially be included in the MVP convo, or nah?
Cavs 110, Warriors 99. Make it 18 wins in last 20 for Cavs. Make it LeBron with season-high 42. Make it Cavs on another level right now.
Lebron James is the first Cavs player w/ at least 40 points, 10 rebounds & 5 assists in a game since...... Lebron James in 2010

LeBron's 11 rebounds tie a season high
I wish I can remember the dude who tried to use advanced stats to argue Steph Curry was a better offensive player than LeBron
Can’t forget Kevin Durant. Reigning MVP. Another killer like MJ & Kobe. Some will say LeBron. Putting on a show tonight w/ 42 vs Warriors.
Sometimes it looks like LeBron just gets bored. And he's got 42 vs the team with the league's best record. Cavs up 107-94 with 2:53 left.
LeBron w/ season-high 42, after high floater in post over Draymond Green. Cavaliers up 107-94, 2:53 left. Curry/Thompson never got rolling.
