=== Cleveland Cavaliers Team Report – November 28 ===
(Sports Network) – LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed hot on
Saturday evening with a victory over the struggling Chicago Bulls.
James had 26 points, seven rebounds and seven assists and became the youngest
player in NBA history to score 2,000 points, as the Cavaliers pasted the
Bulls, 96-74, at Gund Arena.
Jeff McInnis added 16 points and eight assists for the Cavaliers, who are
winners of three straight and nine of 10.
James shot 11-of-17 from the floor in just 32 minutes of action, as he sat out
the entire fourth quarter. With the 26 points, James now has 2,000 career
points, and at 19 years, 272 days, is the youngest-ever to do so. The previous
mark was set by Kobe Bryant, who turned the trick at the age of 20 years, 184
days back on February 23, 1999.
The victory allowed the Cavaliers to improve their road record to 6-1 on
the season. Cleveland is also off to its best start since beginning the
2000-01 season with a 9-4 record. Last year, the Cavs managed just two wins in
their first 19 games of the season.
The Cavs will now travel across the country in time for Monday’s game against
the Los Angeles Clippers.
