CLEVELAND - LeBron James scored 34 points, including the first eight in the fourth quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-98 on Sunday for their sixth straight win.
With a national TV audience watching, the matchup between the NBA's past two MVPs -- and teams expected to contend for the title -- had a playoff-like vibe. The Cavs passed out 20,000 gold T-shirts to their fans, giving Quicken Loans Arena the feel of a game in mid-June not late-January.
Both teams played as if there was more at stake. There were highlight-reel worthy dunks, hard fouls and some trash talking.
Waiters was booed when he came in as a sub in the first quarter. Cavs fans didn't appreciate his recent comments that he didn't touch the ball enough when he was in Cleveland.
