No shot: LeBron struggles, but helps Cavs down Mavericks

first_imgCleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (23) drives past Dallas Mavericks’ Dorian Finney-Smith during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Cleveland, Sunday, April 1, 2018. (AP Photo/Phil Long)CLEVELAND — LeBron James couldn’t get his shot to drop. However, he wouldn’t let the Cavaliers fall.James struggled before extending his record double-digit scoring streak to 868 games and Cleveland had a rough time with Dallas before putting away the lottery-bound Mavericks 98-87 on Sunday night.ADVERTISEMENT James, who broke Michael Jordan’s NBA mark for consecutive games with at least 10 points on Friday night, didn’t reach 10 until 7:59 remained. He finished just 5 of 21 from the field but found his range when it counted most, draining a pair of 3-pointers during a 15-2 run in the fourth quarter when the Cavs finally finished off the Mavericks.“It wasn’t a typical LeBron game,” said interim head coach Larry Drew, who is filling in for Tyronn Lue. “But we were still able to come out with a win. When the game was on the line, he put it on his shoulders once again.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownAnd although his shot was off, James finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists, his 17th triple-double this season and No. 72 of his career.“I missed four, five, maybe six layups, which I’m not accustomed to doing,” James said. “But me not shooting the ball well never stopped me making an impact on the game. So if I’m not shooting well, I gotta make sure I get my guys on time, on target with my passes and I gotta rebound and I gotta do other things to help us win and I was able to do that.” Aldridge, Gay help Spurs beat league-best Rockets In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Cleveland, which has withstood numerous injuries all season, has won eight of nine and is 17-8 since Feb. 7.

Dirk Nowitzki scored nine in possibly the 39-year-old’s final career game in Cleveland.The Cavs were in danger of sliding into fifth place behind Philadelphia and Indiana before waking up in the fourth quarter. They trailed 81-79 before going on an 11-0 run that was capped by a 3 from James, who spent part of Saturday night on stage with pop superstar Justin Timberlake.“We tried to make it tough on him, but obviously he’s one of the best players in the game, if not the best player in the game,” Nowitzki said. “You look up and he’s got a triple-double. He’s affecting the game even though he wasn’t shooting the ball really well. He can drive. He can dish it.”TIP-INSMavericks: Nowitzki was questionable with an ankle issue but started his 76th game this season, a credit to his durability and dedication. “He’s another guy that’s just so extremely meticulous with his approach,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “He changed his diet about 12 years ago or 13 years ago and went to very specific kinds of foods.

(AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — With one deadline looming on his future in Cleveland, LeBron James has been in contact with the Cavaliers through his representatives.Following the NBA draft on Thursday night, Cavs general manager Koby Altman said he has had positive discussions with the three-time champion’s group.

It’s possible James could choose to sign a one-year deal again with a player option and go through the free-agency dance again next summer.To look more appealing to James, the Cavs need to upgrade their roster and they took a significant step by selecting Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the No. 8 overall pick. Sexton averaged 19.2 points as a freshman and he addresses the club’s biggest need — a playmaker to fill the void left when the Cavs traded All-Star Kyrie Irving last summer.Altman hopes Sexton’s arrival will make the Cavs more attractive to James.The 19-year-old lacks professional experience, but Altman pointed out that James dealt with that issue this season.“He went through it this year a little bit with some of our young guys, especially in the playoffs,” Altman said. “What’s amazing, he talks about this all the time — the best teacher is experience. And our young guys got some really good experience this year. And while it wasn’t consistent throughout the playoffs, each guy had their moments. And we went through two Game 7s and got to a Finals, and that experience is a huge teacher for those guys.ADVERTISEMENT “We continue to have good dialogue with his management team,” Altman said. “I think LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does. He’s done that before, so this is nothing new for us. We want to respect his space during this process and I continue to have really good dialogue with his management team as he goes through that process.“That’s probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don’t take him for granted.
