Birthday boy LeBron James calls recent road trip 'trash'

Birthday boy LeBron James calls recent road trip 'trash'”

Now the Cavs will head back to Cleveland as losers of four of their last five games.

Unfortunately for James, he couldn't get everyone to honor the big day: Utah beat the Cavaliers, 104-101.

"We just fight", Mitchell said. "Just did something for me. If you overthink it, that's the first mistake right there".

James scored 29 points and added eight rebounds and six assists on his 33rd birthday for the Cavaliers.

Mitchell blew by J.R. Smith and made a layup in traffic over James with 35 seconds remaining to give the Jazz a 100-97 lead. The Jazz snapped a three-game losing streak. He finished with 29 points on 10-of-17 shooting, six assists and three steals. The volume of problems made him say to his players, "There's too much for me to tell you". He's not afraid of the moment. "They put him in situations where he can succeed and he tries to take advantage of it". Cleveland connected on just 4 of 19 shots in the quarter. The Jazz outscored the Cavaliers 23-3 through the first 7 1/2 minutes to go ahead 71-56. "He came out [from Friday's team scrimmage] feeling pretty good, so we'll see what happens after that". "We didn't shoot the ball as well as we could have, but that's just part of the game". Not LeBron James, not Dwyane Wade, not Kevin Love, nor anyone on the defending Eastern Conference champs.

"Ricky was the guy that got us going", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.

James powered the Cavaliers' late rally, but the Jazz were able to hold on.

After leading by 14 in the first half, the Jazz stormed back early in the 2nd quarter. We know what kind of defender he is. "You just got to go out there".

"They did a good job of turning us over", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said. Doctors have not yet cleared Thomas to play, Lue said. Gobert is making progress, but will miss at least two more weeks with a PCL sprain and bone bruise. Utah have lost three in a row and 10 of their last 12. "Obviously", Snyder said, "a timely shot". "I do think this month will make us better, but that's something that's hard to hang onto".

"I don't sense us being incredibly despondent. But that doesn't mean there's not some psychological toll". 'I'm 21, let me up in here!

"So ever since then it was just like, it just did something to me", James said, referring to basketball. "Who was I going to be?" They'll host the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday in Cleveland in what could very well be Isaiah Thomas' Cavs debut.
