"Tonight the hard challenge was the way they were kind of spreading the floor, running up and down", James said.
Early on in the second period, the visitors extended their lead to nine points before James and the Cavaliers used their superior three-point shooting to take a three-point lead into the intermission.
"Watching him doesn't do him justice", Ball said.

It is hard to prove either side of that question. "I don't think anyone benefits, aside from the internet service providers". Under the previous rules, internet service providers were not allowed to charge you more for visiting certain websites.
But Ball has made an impression on James, from the way he likes to push the ball upcourt quickly off misses and keep the ball moving, to his pass-first mentality and desire to set teammates up for easy baskets. As cameras recorded the moment, James and Ball, whose all-around games and backgrounds are very similar, covered their mouths so the world couldn't listen in on their conversation. Coach Luke Walton has been impressed with how well Ball has adapted to the pros. "Everyone gets so caught up in this whole individual thing and it's, the whole team game gets overlooked, but then, I'm not going to go there". "They exploited that at some points of the game tonight". He said he tweeted happy birthday to the rookie because Ball has been so open about how he holds James in such high regard. "Who was his favorite player. Me wishing him happy birthday was kind of the salute back to him". "He might not be in my way - once he sees I'm about to take off, he might move out the way". "I can't buy a place in L.A". "I got you. He might not be in my way".
"While James has made it clear that he won't deliberate his uncertain future until the Cavs' season is complete, there is strong belief in Rockets circles that they'll have a legitimate shot at landing the four-time MVP this summer", USA Today's Sam Amick said in his report.
Here's what that means: Teams who hope to pitch James next July ought to plan to have the max to offer, which is projected to be about $35 million. "It's a good win for us". "It's a national TV game and everybody saw us play, especially the young guys. We are pretty close I feel like".
