On last Sunday the Cavaliers suffered a blowout loss againts the Warriors, in which they never led and trailed by 28 points in the third quarter. It was so bad LeBron James left the arena without talking to reporters. Later, on Christmas, James was still in disgust following an embarrassing loss, but he managed to outshine fellow superstar and good friend Dwyane Wade and led Clevelad to an important win against the Miami Heat. He felt lucky to still have his two front teeth. “I got elbowed by Shaq in the face, which is not a good thing,” James said. “Ever.” Last night’s game was also a source of many bruises for King James. It started with a face-full of a defender’s hand and got worse with a slip in an empty backcourt. Then came two painful drives, the first leaving him with an aching wrist, the other forcing him to blink away stars from another pop in the face. Despite the bruises, foul trouble and errant shooting, James helped the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Dallas Mavericks. “I took some blows tonight,” James said. “I don’t come out of the game. I’m fine. I shake it off and go to the next play. That didn’t stop me once I got hit the first time from going back into the interior. It isn’t going to stop me.”
