NBA Playoffs Day 1: LeBron James Carries Cavaliers Over Wizards

Can you believe this was a first round game?

 

LeBron and the new look Cavaliers against the rejuvenated, finally healthy Washington Wizards. There was a lot of buzz leading up to this game stemming from comments by DeShawn Stevenson and Gilbert Arenas insulting LeBron. Also, a rivalry has begun to develop between these two teams, to be expected considering that this is the third straight year that they have faced each other in the playoffs.

 

It lived up to the hype. Gilbert Arenas had 24 points off the bench, backing up his big talk and proving that he’ll be a force in this series, and Antwan Jamison had a huge game with 23 points and 19 rebounds. But in the end, LeBron could not be beat. He went 32/4/6 after missing his first four field goals, Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 22 points and a double double, and Daniel Gibson and Delonte West hit some key three pointers to lead the Cavs to a 93-86 win.
