Lebron James Becomes Cavs All Time Leading Scorer in Win Against Toronto

james-becomes-cavs-leading-scorer_214x284.jpgFriday, March 21, 2008, in a 90-83 win against the Toronto Raptors, James hit a layup to surpass Brad Daugherty as the Cavs leading scorer in franchise history.  This accomplishment came in the 1st quarter of play on a driving layup pass Anthony Parker, giving him his 10,391 career point.

Mike Brown took a quick time-out to let Lebron soak in the emotions of the moment, as fans paid tribute to the Cavs new all-time leading scorer with a standing ovation and screams that rang throughout Quicken Loans Arena. 

Gloria James came out on the floor after the game to congratulate her son and give him a kiss for a job well done.

“I think I made my mom proud,” James said after the game.

James finished the night with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Here’s a nice video recap of the game.

Cavaliers vs. Raptors Tonight!

The Cavs take on Toronto tonight as the Raptors look to tie the season series at 2-2 on our homecourt. 

The Cavs are coming off a win on Wednesday against the Pistons, looking to get better in each game of this home-stretch towards the post season, and working to maintain the 4th seed in the East to have homecourt advantage in the 1st round of the playoffs (potentially against these same Raptors).

For a couple great pre-game analyses, check out the Preview by Rock over at Waiting For Next Year, the Raptors Q&A Session hosted by Carolyn of And One, and the Preview by Sam over at Raptors Talk.  Then tune in at 7:30pm ET (Locally – FSN Ohio, Nationally – NBA League Pass).   If you can’t watch it on TV, you can stream it live here

James Questionable for Game Tonight

In the 2nd quarter of the game against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night, Lebron James sprained his left index finger.  X-rays done at the arena came back negative, and after the game he boarded the plane with the team to Toronto.  There he had an MRI done that confirmed the sprain. 

It has not yet been confirmed whether or not he will play in the game against the Raptors tonight.
