LeBron with eight of the last 10 points for the Cavs. Kyrie with the other two. Cavs trailing by 14.
LeBron James just exited the game with 1:46 left in the third quarter. That's probably it for him. He ended with 12 points
LeBron James just recorded his first field goal with 7:28 left in third Q - on a slam dunk in traffic
Three-pointer count for the Cavs: 22. There are 8 minutes left in the third.
Cavs bounce back to draw within 56-55 at the half. Kyrie has 16 pts. Tristan with 14 pts, 8 reb. Just two shots (and 4 assists) for LeBron
Mavericks hold 56-55 halftime lead over Cavs in preseason game No. 3 in four nights for Cavs. LeBron James (1 point) has taken two shots.
That's essentially two shot-clock violations in a row for the Cavs. Don't see that much.
Waiters, incidentally, has led team in shots attempted in every game thus far and has a team-leading 10 more tonight. Conversely, LBJ has 2
Not sure if I missed it last year or Waiters really worked on it over summer, but he's really grasping rule of verticality this preseason
LeBron in for Andy. James at the 4 now with Tristan at center
The Cavs D gives up 37 pts in the 1st Q, allowing Dallas to shoot 57.1 pct from the field (including 5-8 from 3). CLE trails by 11.
WOAH! Chandler Parsons slammed it on LeBron James. That was impressive.
The Mavericks would be the second-best team in the Eastern Conference and an enormous obstacle for the Cavs, but alas, they are out West.
NBA official Derek Richardson prevents LeBron James from scoring in transition twice. First time Bron collided with him. One way to stop him
Kyrie uses an Andy screen and buries another 3. That's 6 quick ones for KI. LeBron has one shot attempt
Welcome back Kyrie. Bottoms a face-up triple
LeBron on a 36-year-old Kobe going into season No. 19 of his career: http://t.co/JwjjrXNVqE
LeBron on Mamba: "I love Kobe. I love his competitive nature. I love competing against him"
LeBron said he talked to Kobe just before training camp: "Just to say, ‘It’s great to have him back.’"
LeBron said he's never read the essay he wrote with Lee Jenkins because "I said it." Added it would be "weird" if he did.
After another particularly compelling pregame media session LeBron goes: "I'm here all year ... I got a lot to give"
For those interested in NBA preseason stuff, it's Andrew Wiggins & TWolves vs. Jabari Parker & Bucks tonight, live from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
David Blatt with praise for Shawn Marion after what Rick Carlisle said about Marion being underrated: I haven't seen a lot of guys like him
Rick Carlisle on Shawn Marion: "He's one of the most underrated players in NBA history"
Major points of emphasis for NBA refs this year: illegal screens, traveling violation, rule of verticality. Just briefed by Mike Callahan
The annual disorienting feeling of walking into a team's shootaround and seeing guys like Villanueva, Jameer & R. Jefferson on the Mavs
Dallas' Rick Carlisle on LeBron: "There's no doubt that we're looking at one of the 5 best players ever to play in the NBA"
CLE had Thursday off following a back-to-back but they brought in Kyrie for a group workout w/some of the young guys as a final ankle test
Kyrie has missed the Cavs last 3 preseason games with his sprained R ankle. Blatt says he's "raring to go" for tonight
Kevin Love's neck is fine, but he has the night off for "rest & maintenance" vs DAL. As does Shawn Marion. Kyrie Irving will play, however.
Kyrie Irving returns for Cavs vs. Mavs tonight. Kevin Love & Shawn Marion out. Both healthy, just resting. And yes, LeBron's playing.
Man. That's rough for the Jets. Geno did his job on two straight drives and the kick gets blocked.
Geno's supporting cast let him down. Again. Just repeat this every week.
