News Day Tuesday: LeBron James Goes Off

(continuing my whining from yesterday’s post… Can we please sign BronBron to next season’s UH squad?

Last Friday, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James went nuts on the Milwaukee Bucks early in the 3rd quarter as he lit up Richard Jefferson and his teammates for 16 points in less than 3 minutes of action. Read an excerpt from the NBA.com recap and then check out the insane YouTube clip below.

MILWAUKEE(AP) LeBron James heaved a 33-foot shot through the net to beat the buzzer and headed into halftime with 25 points under his belt.

Turns out, he was just getting warmed up.

James erased the Cleveland Cavaliers’ halftime deficit by scoring 16 points in less than three minutes to begin the third quarter, on his way to 55 for the night – one shy of his career high – in a 111-103 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

“Just got in the zone, man,” James said. “I saw a few go down, so I just kept going at it, man. Every shot that I made tonight, every shot that we all made tonight, we needed.”

James’ big night included his remarkable run in the first 2:50 of the third quarter, almost single-handedly turning a six-point halftime deficit into an eight-point Cavaliers lead. And he could have scored two more in that stretch if he hadn’t missed a pair of free throws.

“It was almost like watching a video game,” Zydrunas Ilgauskas said…

Video game is right Big Z. That was some sick Double Dribble/NBA Jam-like action there. Oh yeah! Remember those classics? 🙂 Check out the video proof:
