LeBron drops 51…and the Cavs win!

Normally when LeBron has a game like this (51 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists), the Cavaliers lose. Not so Saturday night, though, as the Cavs thumped the Jazz 108-90 and in the process salvaged the final game of their six-game West Coast swing.

At 21-17, the Cavaliers are now fourth in the East, behind the Pistons, Nets and Heat, but the Bucks, Pacers and Sixers are right behind them. Of course, it’s too early to start worrying about playoff seeding yet, but it’s encouraging to note that, even though they’ve been struggling horrendously, the Cavs are still right in the middle of the Eastern Conference. Start playing good ball again and there’s no reason they can’t overtake Miami (23-17) and New Jersey (22-16).
