Steve Kerr on LeBron: “The best player on the planet for the last five years had a huge game against us.”

Chris Fedor

Stephen Curry on MVP: "I hope it’s not handed out on this one game. I hope it’s about the body of work. Tonight just wasn’t my best game"

Chris Fedor

Stephen Curry on the officiating: "We felt like the calls didn’t go our way and it was pretty blatant.”

Dave McMenamin

Steve Kerr on LeBron: "The best player on the planet for the last five years had a huge game against us"

Joe Vardon

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

Chris Fedor

Alright...so revisiting that whole Cavs roster vs. Golden State's...no wrong answer but might have to change my vote from earlier haha.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Kyrie Irving says his shoulder is sore and will see how it feels tomorrow. Adds about Indiana, "We owe them one"

Chris Haynes

#Cavs G Kyrie Irving says his left shoulder is a little sore and he'll see how it feels in the morning.

LeBron plays best game against NBA's finest, bad back and all. My instant analysis bit.ly/1zkb3lW

Chris Haynes

Quick Gamer: LeBron James, #Cavs top NBA's top team in Warriors 110-99 to win 18 of last 20 games cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, @mozg25, 10pts, 10reb; @Kevin Love, 16pts, 3-5 3pt FG, 8reb; @Tristan Thompson, tremendous off bench - 12pts, 4-6 FG, 8reb in 20 min.

Sam Amico

Cavs' Kevin Love, smiling, on LeBron's performance: "It was alright."

Joe Gabriele

Great win for #Cavs over league's top team, 110-99 --11th straight win at The Q, improve to NBA-best 28-1 when scoring over 102.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 110, #Warriors 99, final. LeBron James dominant with season-high 42 points against best team in league.

Sam Amico

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.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs win 110-99 for 18th W in last 20 games, improve to 37-22. LeBron season-high 42p 11r; Kyrie 24p; Love 16p 8r; Mozgov 10p 10r

Sam Amico

Cavs fans loudly mocking Steph Curry after that last missed 3. Curry and Klay Thompson just 10-of-30 shooting. Cavs' D comes thru again.

Dave McMenamin

Saddened to hear about the death of NBA pioneer Earl Lloyd. Feel fortunate he told me his story a few years back es.pn/1zk9UdV

Joe Vardon

LeBron's 11 rebounds tie a season high

Chris Fedor

This is what the #Cavs, a team with title aspirations, should do at home, on a big stage.

Sam Amico

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.

Jason Lloyd

James with new season high of 42 points, #Cavs up 107-94 with 3 mins left

Joe Vardon

Season-high 42 pts for LeBron

Bob Finnan

LeBron James season high 42 points

Chris Haynes

With that floater, LeBron James has a season-high of 42 points.

Joe Vardon

LeBron remains laying down during this timeout. Three Cavs went over to help him up and he waved them off

Joe Vardon

So LeBron is having his best game this season (arguably) but his back is clearly bothering him. He's laying on the floor instd of bench

Joe Gabriele

Question for NBA/#Cavs fans: Have you ever seen @Kendrick Perkins smile before this photo? (Tells you life is good.) http://t.co/aRuzczijyy

Chris Fedor

Kyrie Irving is coming back in.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs G Kyrie Irving suffered a left shoulder injury and will return to the game against Warriors.

Jason Lloyd

Word from #Cavs: Kyrie Irving will return. Shoulder just got bumped.

Dave McMenamin

Tonight's LeBron's third 40-point game of the season. Cavs were 1-1 in his first two.

Chris Fedor

I could come up with a bunch of informative things about this Cavs game, but it's really about one thing: Cleveland has LeBron. GS doesn't

Bob Finnan

LeBron James' season high is 41. He now has 40.

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, @Kyrie Irving, 20pts, 6-14 FG; @mozg25, 10pts, 10reb; Kevin @Kevin Love, 10pts, 7reb; @Tristan Thompson, 8pt, 7reb in 14 min off bench

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs up on Warriors, 90-78, after 3Q; LeBron close to topping season-high (41) -- now w/38pts, 13-21 FG, 4-8 3pt FG; 8-9 FT; 5reb, 4asst.

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 90, Warriors 78. James 38p,5r; Irving 20p; Mozgov 10p,10r; Love 10p,7r. GSW Curry 18p; Thompson 13p. CLE 47%, GSW 43%

Dave McMenamin

Cavs up 90-78 through 3Q. LeBron 38p on 13-for-21 5r 4a; Kyrie 20p; Mozgov 10p 10r; Love 10p; T.Thompson 8p 7r.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 90, Warriors 78, end third Q. Golden State has no answer for LeBron James, who leads all scorers with 38 points

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Kyrie Irving going to the locker room. Looked like a shoulder maybe

Joe Vardon

LeBron's season high of 41 appears to be in jeopardy

Dave McMenamin

LeBron just broke out the MJ shrug after hitting a 3 to give him 36 pts for the game on 12-for-18 shooting.

Joe Vardon

This is LeBron's third break tonight. In Dec., he wouldn't have been able to sit out in game like this. What a statement game

Dave McMenamin

LeBron is cooking and is as animated as we've seen him on the court since that Toronto win the Cavs had back at The Q early on.

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs lead is 14. Warriors haven't trailed by this many in 3 weeks, since Dallas led by 22. But Curry scored 51 & GSW won that night so...

Chris Haynes

LeBron James is letting everybody know that Stephen Curry may be the MVP favorite, but he's still the game's best player.

Sam Amico

Speaking of Kerr, ICYMI: We played 3-on-3 once. He was my teammate. We lost. Yes, blame me. Story: foxsports.com/ohio/story/pla…

Sam Amico

Warriors' Steve Kerr is coming dangerously close to getting tossed. His jacket is off, so maybe he's preparing for it. #cavs #warriors

Dave McMenamin

LeBron is off to a 9-for-12 start to the game. Has 28 pts. Cavs up 11 on the Warriors. Has twice as many pts as his MVP competition, Curry

Bob Finnan

#Cavs move out to their biggest lead, 72-61, with 8:20 left in third Q

Bob Finnan

Warriors get 2nd technical, this one on Draymond Green. Cavs on top, 68-61

Chris Fedor

#Cavs have just 8 assists on 18 makes. It's been a lot of, "We have more one-on-one talent than you. Try to stop us" offense.

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs up, 61-56, in a barnburner at The Q. @LeBron James, 24pts, 7-9 FG, 8-9 FT, 3reb, 3asst; @Kyrie Irving, 15pts, 4-9 FG, 5-5 FT.

Jason Lloyd

Half: #Cavs 61, Warriors 56. James 24p; Irving 15p; Love 8p,4r; Mozgov 6r; Thompson 6r. GSW Curry 14p; Tmpsn 4p; Lee 15p. CLE 44%, GSW 47%

Sam Amico

Here in CLE, LeBron James has 24 pts as Cavs lead Warriors 61-56 at half. There'd be several cool Finals matchups this year and this is one.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs take a 61-56 lead into the half. LeBron 24p 3r 3a; Kyrie 15p; Tristan Thompson 6p 6r. David Lee 15p; Curry 14p for GSW.

Joe Gabriele

Pregame James. http://t.co/YX6cwnLlRn

Chris Fedor

Can't leave Harrison Barnes in the corner. He's better than 50 percent from that spot.

Jason Lloyd

Love how fiery Kerr is. That's his 8th technical of the season, tied with Thibs. Only Indy's Frank Vogel (9) has more.

Bob Finnan

Technical foul on Steve Kerr

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers notes: Kevin Love reflects on busy summer, including near trade to Golden State Warriors bit.ly/1C21kaV

Joe Vardon

Perkins less than thrilled about being removed.

Jason Lloyd

Perk is averaging a foul a minute. He played 2 mins vs Detroit, committed 2 fouls. Two mins tonight, 2 fouls.

Chris Fedor

Warriors are just 4-13 from three-point range tonight. Cavs have outscored them from beyond the arc.

Joe Vardon

That's twice in two games Perkins has been whistled for offensive foul.

Joe Vardon

LeBron went to the locker room to have his back wrapped. Returned to bench

Bob Finnan

Kendrick Perkins checking in at 5:17 mark for #Cavs

Jason Lloyd

By the way, that was a terrific pass from JR Smith to Love in the corner. Six weeks ago with the Knicks, he's taking that himself.

Joe Vardon

Lots of talk about Finals and MVPs in my timeline...Word

Jason Lloyd

LeBron, Irving have combined for 34 of #Cavs 49 points. They've also taken nearly half the shots (15 of 32).

Dave McMenamin

What a sequence for J.R. Smith: Breaks up the Warriors' fastbreak with a poke-away steal. Then passes up his own shot for an open Love 3

Jason Lloyd

Crowd cheers as Perk ready to check in

Chris Fedor

LeBron has 22 points on just nine shots. That's some efficiency.

Jason Lloyd

This would be a wildly entertaining Finals. Just sayin.

Joe Gabriele

Shump. http://t.co/cBeUX6l6WV

Joe Vardon

Kerr was asked if he thought LeBron would try to have "one of those games" w Curry out there. Kerr said: "Probably." He was right. 18 pts
