Cleveland rebounded from a mini losing streak with to pound San Antonio 101-81, improving its home record to 37-1 on the season.
The Cavs played without renewed focus, keeping the silly in-game celebrations to a minimum while clamping down on Tim Duncan and the Spurs.
LeBron led the way with 38 points on 14-21 shooting. Mo Williams dominated the third quarter and finished with 22 points.
The Spurs had a bad week, and like old balls Sunday. Duncan didn’t score after the first quarter and looks wounded. He is battling knee and quad issues and probably should sit a couple games to recover.
Manu Ginobili continues to work his way back from his ankle issue. He scored four points on 2-9 shooting.
The Spurs could be an early exit from the playoffs if Duncan and Ginobili can’t get healthy.
Meanwhile, Cleveland has three home games remaining and could tie the all-time NBA home record if it runs the table.
The Cavs host the Celtics next Sunday in what should be a great game.
Quicken Loans Arena has really become a tough atmosphere for opponents. The Cavs generally run more at home to excite the fans, and the game presentation includes constant musical interludes and loud, obnoxious sound-effects.
Keep on rockin’.
