On Friday a tough loss was looming for the Cavaliers when LeBron James turned it on. And this time, his teammates did, too. James scored 24 points – only two in the fourth quarter – and Daniel Gibson hit a dagger-like 3-pointer with 12 seconds left as the Cavaliers avoided humiliation by beating the short-handed Sacramento Kings. The same story was about to happen on Sunday afternoon. The Cavs, who trailed by as many as twenty in the first quarter and thirteen going into the fourth, couldn’t find any rhythm in their game. James struggled for the first three quarters making just six of 19 attempts, but was unstoppable in the fourth. He scored 24 points in the final 12 minutes, which turned out to be another tremendous performance by The Chosen One, and Cavaliers’ new franchise record for the points in a quarter (the previous mark of 23 held by Terry Furlow (1978) and World B. Free (1985)). “I just felt like I was out there by myself,” he said. “Everything was going right for me and I just felt like I was out there in practice. The hoop felt like the ocean.” Check out the highlights.
