James huge for Cavs

Triple-double shows LeBron likes playoffs

April 23, 2006


— LeBron James was more than ready for his NBA playoff debut, recording a triple-double while leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 97-86 victory over the Washington Wizards in their Eastern Conference series opener Saturday.

James, playing his first postseason game since winning a state title as a high school senior, scored 32 with 11 rebounds and 11 assists - including a Magic-like, no-look number late in the third quarter that all but put the Wizards away.

Drew Gooden scored seven for Cleveland.
