LeBron James vs Michael Jordan

Kevin Love

A quick call to the Capital Grille in Indianapolis - where the manager initially didn't believe that the Miami Heat, travel party of 51, were on the way - set up dinner for everyone, and hotel rooms were secured while everyone dined. And two, he became just the third player in National Basketball Association history to make at least 10 3-pointers and 10 free throws in the same game.

LeBron James has an MVP in mind. "We talk about what we do against everybody else".

James approached Walker at midcourt as time expired, gave him a huge hug and whispered congratulations in his ear, telling him it was an incredible accomplishment.

Now, I've heard the idea of splitting up the MVP award into two parts, one for the Best Player and one for the Best Season, but that doesn't seem fair.

Counting tonight's contest, there are only eight games left before the playoffs, and Cleveland has yet to play with its full roster.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are not taking any chances regarding the bump suffered by veteran big Kevin Love.

After Kevin Love returned to Tuesday's game in Miami with a subluxated front tooth caused by an elbow from Mickey, Love was re-evaluated at halftime and ruled out for the rest of the game.

"It's pretty incredible. It's pretty incredible", James said of the recognition. Everywhere we go, he gets standing ovations.

James matched Jordan's 17-year-old mark in the second quarter when he scored his 10th point on a powerful alley-oop dunk off a pass from J.R. Smith. After Wednesday's game, he elaborated on what the award would mean to him in his 15th season.

LeBron James has tied one of Michael Jordan's most impressive records with his 866th consecutive game with at least 10 points.

"Well, I tell you, LeBron has been healthy, and he continues to be healthy", Cavs acting coach Larry Drew said when asked about James' impending record before the game.

Rodney Hood added 15 points for Cleveland.

The last time James failed to do was on January 5, 2007 when he only managed eight points against the Milwaukee Bucks.

"It's awesome", power forward Jeff Green said.

Heat: Spoelstra was back with the team, two days after he and his wife Nikki's first child - Santiago Ray Spoelstra - was born.

Love took to Twitter to thank his mouth guard sponsor for preventing an even worse injury, but he remains a doubt for today's match-up against the Charlotte Hornets - just five games in after a 21-game absence with a broken hand.

In three games against Miami this season, the Cavaliers used a total of 20 players. After road games at Atlanta and NY, the Heat then finish at home against Oklahoma City and Toronto.
