35 points. 17 assists. Zero turnovers.
LeBron James did it all for the Cleveland Cavaliers last night in the team's 132-129 victory over the Eastern Conference leading Toronto Raptors. The 4x NBA MVP finished with 35 points, 17 assists and zero turnovers, becoming the first player with 35+ points, 15+ assists and no turnovers in a game since turnovers were first tracked in 1977-78, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
LeBron's 17 assists marked the sixth time he has had 15 or more in a game this season, which is a career high, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Remember, this is his 15th season in the league.
"I've never seen anything like it, to be perfectly honest with you. 17 assists, 35 points, and no turnovers. It's just amazing... what he does, night in and night out. How he sustains it, it's mind-boggling," said Cavs interim coach, Larry Drew after LeBron's historic night.
For the season, LeBron is currently averaging 27.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and a career-best 9.1 assists per game.
With last night's win over the Raptors, the Cavs improved to 49-29 on the season which puts them 1.5 games up on the Philadelphia 76ers and Indiana Pacers for third place in the Eastern Conference.
