LeBron’s ‘home cooking’ fuels Lakers past Cavaliers

Lakers star LeBron James goes up for a dunk vs. the Cavaliers.

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 115-108 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Monday, improving LA’s road record to 10-0.

LeBron James led the way with 46 big points for the Lakers in a homecoming game for him. As most know, James grew up in the Northeast Ohio area, 30 minutes down the road in Akron. James, as most also know, played 11 years for the Cavs, so he knows those courts and stomping grounds very well. After his great performance, he described what was different as far as being back home in Northeast Ohio.

“Home cooking,โ€ said James, who got a meal made by his mom, Gloria. โ€œIt felt good to be back in my haven.”

James went ballistic in the fourth quarter as well, scoring 21 points and demoralizing the Cavaliers on a barrage of 3-pointers and turnaround jump shots. When James is clicking on all cylinders like he was against the Cavaliers there is no stopping him. And the Lakers are damn near impossible to beat. Can they keep up this pace on the road? Only time will tell.
