The Cleveland Cavaliers withstood a determined Brooklyn Nets at the Q to win 129-123 on Tuesday, February 27th. The game was tight throughout, with the lead changing hands 25 times before the final score would be tallied. Lebron James had an evening worth remarking. He became the first player ever to reach 30,000 points, 8,000 assists, and 8000 rebounds. Also, James recorded a triple double both on the night and as an average for the month of February. Should James be named the player of the month, it will be the seventh consecutive February in which he has received that honor.
Elsewhere on the court, coach Lue toyed with a number of new lineups with the latest trade-deadline additions. George Hill started and scored 26 points, which was only outdone by LBJ’s 31. The rest of the newbies combined for 38 off the bench.
