Lebron is cleared to play friday

LeBron James hurt his right knee in Wednesday’s game while scrambling for a loose ball with Kidd. He is clear to play game 6 in New Jersey on Friday.

James’ knee isn’t his only worry. His girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, who is eight months pregnant with James’ second son required medical attention and was taken to a hospital at halftime.

“I think she’s OK, from the little bit of information I have,” James said. “It’s just basketball to me. I’ve got a family at home I’ve got to worry about.”

The Cavs seemed to play distracted for much of the second half and the Nets extended their lead to 22 points.
