James retreated to the locker room with 3:50 remaining in the second quarter after he collided with Boston’s Jayson Tatum and was fouled. Before checking out, James made one of two free throws, giving Cleveland its largest lead of the game at 11 points. The Cavs were outscored by 24 the rest of the way after the collision, losing 107-94 and falling down 2-0 in the series. “It was a tough collision,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “Knocked his head sideways. Of course, he came back; but when he came back, I don’t think he had the same punch that he had before he left as far as attacking the basket, playing with that force and power we talked about at shootaround. We’ll see how he feels.”

Kemba Walker can’t avoid it. Whenever he sets foot in the five boroughs, the questions come from every direction. “I’ve been hearing it for years,” Walker said Thursday, after working with youngsters at the National Basketball Players Association summer camp. “Every time I come home, ‘When are you going to come home and play for the Knicks?’ I know it’s a special place, I was a Knicks fan growing up, always rooted for the home team. But I just can’t see myself in a Knicks jersey, only because I’ve only been in one jersey.”

After missing all of last season due to injury, Brandon Knight is back and looking forward to becoming a leader for the Suns young core. The 26-year-old point guard used the time off the court as a learning experience to help build his leadership skills. “When you can’t play, you can’t affect the game on the court,” Knight said. “I just found other ways to try to help my teammates be better. Whether that be telling tidbits I saw when I observed. I just tried to be a veteran presence on our team and just lead through that.”
