Nance earns high praise from James on his Cavs debut

Boston Celtics: Why LeBron's stranglehold on the East is over

Griffin said that what Cleveland traded for, in effect, was a fully locked-in LeBron, someone who actively wanted to compete for the guys around him, which was more important than any individual they acquired from the Kings, Jazz or Lakers.

The Cavs are not yet guaranteed a place in the playoffs either, though they will not be too anxious about where they sit.

The Cavaliers will be hoping for a similar outcome after thoroughly outplaying the Detroit Pistons in their last outing, 112-90.

Which Jokic will turn up? The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 110.1 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 109.8 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Wearing the same No. 22 his father had retired by Cleveland, the 25-year-old Nance had the best game of his young career. Then after two Jokic free throws, he sank a 16-footer with 10.5 seconds to play. The Nuggets' offense proved too good for the Cavs' suspect defense in that game as they won 126-117.

James also added 10 assists and eight rebounds for the Cavaliers, while Rodney Hood contributed 15 points.

LeBron attended St Vincent-St Mary high school before declaring for the 2003 National Basketball Association draft. Only two games separate the third seed from the fifth, and only 4.5 games separate them from the eighth.

Nance, who arrived in Cleveland in a Feb 8 trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, started at centre in place of Tristan Thompson, who sprained an ankle against Denver on Saturday.

James, 33, is fourth in the league in points per game, second in the league in assists per game, 17th in rebounds and 21st in steals.

The Cavs star, out of Akron, Ohio, is also part of a sports-marketing company called LRMR Management.

Detroit had just acquired Blake Griffin in a big trade with the Los Angeles Clippers, but Griffin wouldn't make his debut until the Pistons' next game on February 1.

While the Nuggets are finding their rhythm, Cleveland is struggling in that department.

In response to a question Friday about whether he has already crafted a list of teams he's willing to speak with this summer, James said his only focus is how the rest of this season plays out, for himself and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Probably an all-time high. With James drawing the defense's attention, the 6'9" forward should get more and more chances to show what he can do offensively.

LeBron James has a very interesting decision to make this summer. In an essay he wrote for the Player's Tribune, he discussed the panic attacks, the first of which hit him during a game against Atlanta on November 5.

The game will see-saw back and forth before Denver pull away late on their home floor.
