For the 56th time in his career, LeBron James grabbed a Triple Double with 29 points, 13 assists, and 10 rebounds. But many will remember the first missed free throw down 109-107 with seven seconds left, thus forcing James to intentionally miss the 2nd free throw to stay in the game. This unsuccessful effort led to the Cavs losing to the Brooklyn Nets 112-107 on Wednesday night. While this is not the only time James has failed from the free throw line, that missed free throw sums up the first five games of the season for the Cavaliers. It's a team who has yet to get out of first gear and letting a team who a season ago was the worst team in the league improve to the same 3 win total as the Cavs.
Cleveland finished the game with 21 turnovers and for the 3rd straight game gave up 17 three pointers by the opposing team.
Frustrated Ty Lue had some strong thoughts about the Brooklyn pick.
Cavaliers' next game is this Saturday night at The Q against the New Orleans Pelicans (7pm WTAM/WMMS) and Sunday night against the Knicks (7pm WTAM/WMMS). It will be the Cavs' 3rd back-to-back of the season.
