Cavaliers' LeBron James: Scores 18 points in final preseason tune-up

James scored a team-leading 18 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT) to go with four rebounds, four steals, two assists and one block across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 96-91 preseason loss to the Wizards.

The Cavaliers have limited James to only three preseason appearances, but conditioning has never been an issue for the reigning NBA Finals MVP. He was excellent during his time on the floor Tuesday and should be ready to play his usual 35 or so minutes per game when the Cavaliers take on the Knicks in their regular-season opener Oct. 25.
