Once LeBron James decided to dominate, the Utah Jazz were defenseless and soon, defeated. James scored 34 of his 40 points in the second half, and stripped former teammate Carlos Boozer in the final seconds Friday night to give the Cleveland Cavaliers a 99-94 victory over Utah, ending a five-game winning streak by the Jazz. James, playing as he did while leading the Cavs to their first NBA finals last season, did it all. He just missed his second straight triple-double, finishing with 10 rebounds, nine assists and three blocks. He made 13 of 15 free throws, including four straight in the final 3.8 seconds as the Cavs sealed it. LeBron for the first time in the 2007-2008 regular season rocked the Zoom LeBron V China edition, which he introduced in the NBA China Games 2007 back in October during the preseason. BTW… the last player to go for 39 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in back-to-back games was another No. 23 Ă˘ÂÂ Michael Jordan Ă˘ÂÂ back in April of 1989.
