Size matters, especially in the NBA. And in Saturday’s Game 1 in Cleveland, the Cavaliers controlled the Bulls with their bigs – running out to a 22-point lead and holding on for the 96-83 series-opening win. The Cavaliers starting frontline of LeBron James, Shaquille O’Neal and Antawn Jamison (plus Anderson Varejao off the bench) combined for 60 points, 36 boards and 11 blocked shots – dominating Chicago’s big men for most of the afternoon. “That’s something that we have been looking forward to all season – seeing how the size we play differs between last year in the postseason and this year,” said James. “We have a lot of size, and we have a lot of depth in the frontcourt and in the backcourt and it showed today.” LeBron led Cleveland with 24 points, going 9-for-19 from the floor and 6-of-7 from the stripe. James was his usual MVP self, making plays at both ends. He added six boards, five assists and a game-high four blocked shots. LBJ debuted the anticipated LeBron VII P.S. – the POP version – his latest signature shoes from Nike.
