The Cavaliers win 99-94. James scores a triple-double (20 points, 12 assists, ten rebounds), Irving scores 27 points. Dunvealy scores 24 points and Brooks scores 17 for the Bulls. Coach Blatt:
I’ve been doing this a long time, I’ve never seen three like that in one game.
The basketball gods were on their side today.
James on Irving’s three-point shoots:
I told him to just throw it up there and see what happens, and it went in. I told him to just cast it, and it definitely was the difference in the game.
Some I thought were defended well, some weren’t. They had three heaves that went in.
