Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- With the NBA still reeling from Friday's ugly brawl, LeBron James gave the league something to feel good about. James scored a career-high 43 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers posted a 92-76 victory over the Pistons, who dropped under .500 for the first time since last season's opener. The second-year teenage superstar surpassed his previous best of 41 points against New Jersey last season, which he capped with the Rookie of the Year Award. "Tonight, (James) was as good as I have seen," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "I don't think I've seen too many players any better." James was spectacular throughout, making 15-of-22 shots. He also handed out five assists and grabbed six rebounds. "It's as good a performance as I've seen, and, for a young kid to not go on his own in a circumstance like that, it's good," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "And our league needs something like this after what happened on Friday." During pregame warmups, a Cavaliers fans walked down to the courtside seats wearing boxing gloves, a reference to Friday's ugly incident. He was asked to remove the gloves but was allowed to stay in the area. James took the fight out of the Pistons (5-6) early, scoring 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting in the first quarter. The Cavaliers opened a 24-17 lead they never relinquished. "(Zydrunas Ilgauskas) had a bad back, so I had to step my game up," James said. "I was just feeling it, and anytime I feel like that, I can do a lot of things." Ilgauskas, who came in averaging 18.9 points per game, was slowed by back spasms and finished with just six points in 30 minutes. "He (James) did it in every way," Cavaliers guard Eric Snow said. "It was extra special because of the fact (Ilgauskas) was hurting." With 10:49 left in the second quarter, James reached 19 points on a three-point play, matching the punchless Pistons' total to that point. James was briefly slowed in that period, going to the bench with 9:22 left after picking up his second foul. But he was responsible for all but one of Cleveland's 17 points in the third quarter, scoring 12 points and assisting on two other baskets. After Detroit scored the first eight points of the third quarter to pull within 54-45, James took charge. He scored three quick driving baskets and assisted on Ira Newble's bucket that gave the Cavaliers a 62-47 cushion with 5:27 left in the third. "That's the reason I called two quick timeouts to try to change (the momentum)," Silas said. "(LeBron) then just took over. He just said, 'Give me the ball and I'll win it for you.'" "(Detroit) was making a run and I couldn't stand down," James added. James drilled back-to-back 3-pointers, pushing Cleveland's advantage to 81-65 with 8:02 remaining. After the second 3-pointer, James came up the floor with his tongue out as a crowd of 19,192 roared its approval. With 2:03 to go, he left to a standing ovation. Richard Hamilton scored 28 points for the Pistons, who were coming off Tuesday's lost to the expansion Charlotte Bobcats. They are 1-2 without forward Ben Wallace, who served the third of a six-game suspension for his part in Friday's brawl.
