LeBron James Proves he's Still the King

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall had his shoulder in a sling following his team's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night. His inability to shoot makes it much easier for defenses to just pack the paint and force someone else to beat them. If they were going to go down, they were going to go down in the conference finals. James did it with style, too.

With nifty moves to the lane, jump shots falling and domination in the paint, Lebron had his way with John Wall, Bradley Beal and the boys in the nations capital.

"It's, like, it's "his" Finals".

A Cavs club that had lost its four preceding games by a total of 64 points, the worst such stretch James has experienced since he was a rookie, broke out against a Wizards club that keeps insisting it is ready to reach the East finals for the first time in four decades.

You can see Beal try to suppress a smile as Wall dives into the talking point.

The same can't be said of the Wizards, who have started the year 4-3 and will only get stronger with Markieff Morris set to return following sports hernia surgery. Rudy Gay scored 20 points and Dejounte Murray had 10 to help San Antonio's reserves outscore the Charlotte subs 62-16. Rose also went 6 for 7 in the period, scoring 13, as the visitors went up 42-36.

The offenses for both teams tell a different story.

Congress to Vote on Resolution Supporting Balfour Declaration
Zionists feel it is the foundation for modern Israel while non-Jewish Palestinians and Arabs speak of loss and dispossession. Palestinians have argued that Israel, through the declaration and its British backers, is a colonial enterprise.

Now, this isn't a shot at Tim Frazier, nor is this is a claim that Frazier isn't playing as hard as the other guys mentioned above, but let's be real, he's played poorly in his time with the Wizards. Cleveland leads the National Basketball Association with points on 68 percent on its drives, while Washington ranks second at 63 percent.

By halftime, Cleveland's lead was 74-66 on 66 percent shooting. It was 102-93 heading into the fourth. In 2013 IN came out determined to capture the #1 seed IN the East, which they eventually did, despite imploding en route to a six game loss IN the conference finals. Norman Powell also scored 15. Last season, he became the youngest to reach 27,000, and then the youngest to reach 28,000.

In addition, Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. has been fined $15,000 for aggressively entering the altercation.

Otto Porter started the game off 4-for-4 from the field and was playing stellar on both sides of the ball. He had 15 points. Coach Scott Brooks believes Wall will miss just the one game but consider him questionable for Tuesday night against the Dallas Mavericks.

The under has been a good play in recent meetings between these two teams and that should be the case here.

"He had an awesome game, but at the same time, we got to respect what he does and what he brings to the game".

Cavaliers: Host the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. If he can't show up in big games like these, it makes many wonder whether the Wizards seriously have the ability to make it past the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
