LeBron drops 56, Cavs drop game

This team can be so friggin’ frustrating. LeBron James became the youngest player in league history to eclipse the 50-point mark Sunday, scoring 56 against the Raptors on 18-36 shooting, including 6-12 from downtown. Despite his historical outing, though, the Cavaliers still fell to the lowly Raptors, 98-105, thanks to a quiet afternoon from Zydrunas Ilgauskas (10 points, 8 boards) and a pitiful performance from the bench, which scored one lousy point.

You’d like to think that this team has the potential to do some damage in the playoffs, but nights like this leave you hoping that they can just qualify. The Cavaliers are currently slotted fifth in the East, two games behind the fourth-seeded Wizards but only three ahead of #9 Orlando. With 18 games left on the schedule, including dates with the Pistons, Rockets, Mavericks, Kings and Wizards, there’s still time for them to pull it all together. Then again, there’s still time for them to fall completely apart too.
