Cavaliers' LeBron James: Turns ball over season-high seven times in loss
James registered 22 points (8-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-7 FT), four assists and four rebounds across 33 minutes in Tuesday's 118-101 loss to the Bucks.
A third-quarter surge by the Bucks forced the Cavaliers to play catch up for much of the second half, which prevented James from playing to his strengths as a facilitator and interior scorer. While he still finished with an efficient shooting night from the field and behind the arc, James still had to jack up eight a season-high three-point shots to help the Cavs keep pace, and turned the ball over a season-high seven times while finishing with his fewest assists of the campaign. Chalk it up as an off night for James and the 13-3 Cavs, who still remain the team to beat in the Eastern Conference.
