LeBron James scored 22 points, Daniel Gibson had 20 of his 25 in the first half and the Cleveland Cavaliers won their home opener 96-79 over Charlotte on Thursday night. James just missed a triple-double, adding nine rebounds and nine assists in only 30 minutes for the Cavs, who bounced back from a sloppy season-opening loss at Boston with a much crisper performance. Mo Williams finished with 17 points. James always noted for his efficiency scored 22 points for the second time in a row. Thursday night James needed only 15 shot attempts opposed to 21 from Tuesday’s outing in Boston. James who barely missed yet another triple-double was also as effective from the foul line going 8-of-12. The five turnovers were a bit high, but once he settled down James played mistake free. King James unveiled yet another Nike Zoom LeBron VI colorway, which as of today is available nationwide. As usual, matching Cleveland Cavaliers’ home jersey, LBJ was rocking a White and Red based style with some kind of a laser 3M pattern on the midsole (similar to the United We Rise). More of that on the pics below.
