LeBron leads a new win over Pacers

"King" James is quickly becoming triple trouble for the rivals, and everyone in Cleveland celebrates it.

Indeed, LeBron scored 30 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his third triple-double of the season and 14th of his career on Sunday, carrying the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers to their third straight triumph 111-106 against the Indiana Pacers.

"I have to say that the guy is just unbelievable," Cavaliers head coach Mike Brown said of his selfless superstar. "He does the triple-doubles so effortlessly that it's not shocking when you see it at the end of a ballgame."

According to the reports, James is averaging a league-best 31.3 points per game, along with 8.3 rebounds and 8.1 assists. In his last six games, his statistics are even more impressive - averaging 37.5 points, 10.2 rebounds and 9.5 assists. However, the only numbers he cares about are in the win column.

"We're playing some good basketball, and I'm the catalyst of that," LeBron James admitted, after recording back-to-back triple-doubles for the first time in his career. "The best thing about it is that we got our third straight victory. And that's great."

It's also important to mention that Drew Gooden had 23 points and 12 rebounds for reigning Eastern Conference champion Cleveland (8-6) while Sasha Pavlocic chipped in with 22 points.

Also Marquis Daniels scored a season-high 25 points while Jamaal Tinsley had 24 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds, but committed eight turnovers for Indiana (6-8) which had won its last two encounters. Danny Granger finished with 21 points.

Cleveland led by 13 in the third period before James went to the bench with a bloody mouth with four minutes remaining in the frame, allowing the Pacers to rally.

In fact, Granger's jumper knotted the contest and the Pacers took a 75-73 edge, heading into the final 12 minutes.

"I just understand if a team is going to double me," James expressed. "I just know how to play against every defense that the team is going to throw at me."

With the Cavs clinging to a three-point advantage, the most brilliant player came to the rescue, blocking Tinsley's jumper with nine seconds left to seal the triumph.
