CLEVELAND, Ohio, Sporting Alert – LeBron James and Cleveland will entertain New York, while the LA Clippers and the Warriors will face-off in another NBA game streaming live on WatchESPN on Wednesday night.
The Cavaliers (3-1) head into this battle on a three-game winning streak after losing the season opener to Chicago, and James and his teammates will be hoping to extend this streak to four games against the Knicks.
James, who scored his 25,000th career point during the Cavs’ 107-100 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, was dominant in that outing – after scoring 22 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds, four steals and collected four blocks in the win.
The four-time MVP is averaging 22.0 points per game and is shooting 52 percent from the field, despite being bothered by a back problem.
On Wednesday night, James will come up against his good friend Carmelo Anthony, who is averaging 23 points per game, but struggled in the defeat against San Antonio after shooting 4 for 17 from the field.
In fact, it was the second time in four outings the New York (2-2) forward struggled to knock down less than five shots in a game, after he went 4 for 16 against the Milwaukee Bucks last month in the season opener.
Anthony, who is usually sharp when it comes to shooting, is going just 37.2 percent from the field thus far.
He says he is still working on his fitness which is affecting his jump shots.
“I watch film all day long…. The mechanics (are) there. Just that lift, power coming back to game shape, game form,” Melo said.
“It’s just legs. The shot is right there. Some of them I’m shooting them long, some I’m shooting short. It’s just about getting that rhythm.”
Interesting stats heading into this season, sees Carmelo ahead of LeBron, 12-11, in head-to-head regular season battles.
The night’s other game will see Western Conference hard-hitters Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors going head-to-head in an early regular season matchup.
This one is expected to be heated, given the most recent fuss involving these two clubs.
The Clippers (4-0) have won four games in a row heading into this game, but will come up against a Warriors (4-0) side that has looked great so far this season and are being led by a Stephen Curry, who is averaging 37.0 points, per game, dishing out 6.2 assists and shooting almost 60 percent from the floor.
Someone will be 4-1 at the end the night.
I think we all know who that will be. 🙂
