Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Chalk up another milestone in LeBron James' short but stellar career. James became the youngest player in league history to record a triple-double with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists as the Cavaliers rolled to a 107-101 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. "First career triple-double, one of many to come, I'm sure," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "He's been flirting with it for a while now, tonight he got it." Just 20 days into his 20th year, James made 11-of-16 shots and provided four steals as the Cavaliers were barely threatened after a big second-quarter run and improved to 2-2 on their season-high six-game road trip. "It's a relief," James said of his feat. "It feels great, especially when you can get a win with it. It makes it extra sweet. It was never a goal of mine to do, but once I kept getting so close I wanted to just try and get over it." The Trail Blazers started the game with a lot of energy and had a 32-26 lead after Damon Stoudamire made a 3-pointer to start the second quarter. Cleveland then turned eight Portland turnovers and five missed free throws into a 25-7 run and took a 51-38 lead. James scored four points before sitting out much of the surge but provided everything his team needed in the fourth quarter, when the Trail Blazers tried to make a game of it. James scored 11 points, grabbed three boards and dished out three assists in the final 12 minutes. He either scored or assisted on Cleveland's first five baskets and, after Portland cut the deficit to 95-87 with just under four minutes left, sank his first 3-pointer to push the lead back to 11. "The assists are the best part of it because I'm getting my teammates into the game and getting them easy baskets," James said. "Important thing tonight is we got the win. We needed this one. We came into a tough environment and got the win." The second-year star broke the record held by Lamar Odom, who was 20 years, 54 days when he posted a triple-double for the Los Angeles Clippers on December 30, 1999 - James' 15th birthday. James finished three assists shy of a triple-double when the Cavaliers routed the Trail Blazers, 112-88, on December 15. "Man, that guy is great," Portland guard Nick Van Exel. "He does everything great out there - passing, penetrating, shooting, everything." Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Cleveland, which has won eight of 11 overall. "I knew that they were a little banged up with some of their bigger guys and they played a hard game yesterday in Sacramento," Ilgauskas said. "We were hoping that they would be a little tired tonight." Already without injured forwards Zach Randolph, Darius Miles and Shareef Abdur-Rahim, the Trail Blazers got just one minute from center Theo Ratliff, who left after committing two quick fouls. He complained of a stomach virus and never returned. Rookie James Thomas used some rare minutes to pull down a career-high 15 rebounds for Portland, which lost its fifth straight game. Van Exel scored 28 points - just two in the fourth - and Stoudamire added 27. "It's frustrating in the sense that we kept losing, but it's hard when you're this shorthanded, said Stoudamire, who scored 15 in the fourth quarter. "It was the same story as earlier on our road trip," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said, referring to his team's recently finished 1-5 stretch away from home. "We tried, but we were just outmatched."
