Cavs beat Spurs in NBA new season

Cleveland King LeBron James dunked over Tim Duncan with a snarl, an early statement of a rugged night. And by the time it was over, the Cavaliers got out of San Antonio with their first victory in the Alamo City since 1988.

Indeed, James scored 35 points, hitting a key layup and free throw late in the fourth to help snuff a San Antonio rally and lead the Cavaliers to an 88-81 triumph Friday night.

"I believe that for us to become one of the powerhouses, which we've been preaching, we've got to go out there and walk the walk," James admitted.

But we must admit that James' night wasn't as easy as it might have looked.

Actaully the Spurs, one of the dominant home-court teams in the NBA, slashed a 13-point deficit in the fourth down to four and might have won if not for a dismal 18-of-34 effort shooting free throws.

And Tim Duncan finished with 25 points and 12 rebounds and scored 14 points in a five-minute span to spark the rally. But he struggled badly from the line, going 9-for-19.
