The Cavaliers (3-2)hosted the Seattle SuperSonics (1-3) Wednesday night at the Q and came up with a BIG win 112-85. Lebron James led the Cavaliers with 31 points and was 11 for 11 and the charity stripe. Drew Gooden and Donyell Marshall were also perfect at the stripe 7 for 7 and 6 for 6 respectively. Ray Allen led the Sonics with 28 points, and could have beaten most folks in a good old game of “Horse” calling a “Swish” as each shot he made was nothing but NET.
“We won big, but I think we could have played a lot better,” said James, who made 10-of-18 shots and 11-of-11 free throws. “Anytime we can get bench production like we did tonight, it is always a positive thing.”
With 8:49 to play in the third quarter, James reeled in a pass from Donyell Marshall for a thunderous back-breaking alley-oop dunk that pushed the advantage to 99-71.
“That’s why they call him ‘The King,'” Marshall said. “I know it was a bad pass, but he made me look good.”
Cleveland shot 50 percent (38-of-76) from the floor and outrebounded Seattle by a staggering 56-21, the largest margin in franchise history. The Cavaliers also made 31-of-33 free throws, including their first 28. For a complete recap click HERE
