LeBron James and his new teammates are playing like old buddies.
James scored 37 points, and the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers got a much
different result this time against the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 120-112
victory on Tuesday night.
LeBron拿了37分, 新風貌的騎士今日對戰雷霆打出截然不同的結果, 120-112獲勝
Cleveland claimed its second straight win since adding George Hill, Rodney
Hood, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. in trades, and their fourth
straight victory overall. The Cavaliers lost to the Thunder 148-124 on Jan.
20 with a very different roster.
“It’s a change of scenery and they’re just trying to take advantage of it,
” James said. “For the guys that were here, we’re just trying to make them
as comfortable as possible. Make the transition as seamless as possible.”
Thunder coach Billy Donovan said the changes create a lot of problems.
“I think their ability to space it, drive it, kick it, their skill level, I
think — not that it was bad before, but I think the speed, probably the
tempo and the pace they are playing at is a little bit faster,” he said.
"我覺得騎士在創造空間, 切入, 防守上的能力, 他們的技巧水準....
不是說之前不好, 但我想在速度上, 可能是節奏方面, 他們現在打得更快了一點"
Each of Cleveland’s additions made solid contributions against Oklahoma
City. Hill started at point guard and went 24 minutes without a turnover.
Hood and Clarkson each scored 14 points and Nance had 13 points and nine
rebounds, including eight offensive boards.
James praised Cleveland general manager Koby Altman for getting what the team
needed at the trade deadline.
“It just wasn’t working out for us. He made the changes he felt best fit
our team,” James said. “Then, it’s on me to make sure the new guys that
come in, that they fit in and make it as seamless as possible. That’s my
job. This is the third game in a row my voice is gone. So I am just trying to
have communication at an all-time high for us.”
之後就換我來確保新夥伴們能融入, 盡可能的無縫接軌, 這是我的工作

“We’ve got to keep working,” Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said. “It’s a
process. You’ve got to keep playing well, keep getting better and hit that
Lue表示:"我們要繼續努力, 這是個過程, 要持續好表現, 要持續打得更好並謹慎前進"

Westbrook had 12 assists and seven rebounds, but he made just 7 of 19 shots.
“This guy has been an ironman for so long, but when you miss two games and
practices and you have one day to get back, there could have been, for him,
trying to work his way back in to where he was,'” Donovan said. “He’s
never going to make an excuse about his ankle or how he feels or anything
else. He gave everything, as he always does, to try to win.”
James scored 14 points in the first five minutes of the third quarter,
including two 3-pointers, to give Cleveland a 78-68 lead. He was 6 for 6 from
the field during that stretch. The Thunder responded with an 8-0 run to get

dunk to seal the win for Cleveland.
