After yesterday’s game LeBron James sat in one corner of Cleveland’s locker room soaking his sore feet in a tub full of ice. Like a boxer who just left the ring, he was hurting all over. The Houston Rockets gave him their best shot. “That,” James said, “was a heavyweight fight. It felt like a playoff game.” James scored 27 points – 18 in the second half- and made one of the defining defensive plays of his career by pinning Yao Ming’s shot against the backboard in the fourth quarter as the Cavaliers remained the NBA’s only undefeated team at home with a down-and-dirty 99-90 win Tuesday night. The Cavs are the first team to win their first 14 home games since Chicago and Orlando did it in 1995-96. Photos from the past few games after the jump.
