"That's a good moment, a special moment not only for myself but for my family and for so many kids that look up to me for inspiration to know that you can actually go out there and do it and know where I've come from", James said.
James last failed to score in double digits on January 5, 2007, against Milwaukee.

J.R. Smith was struggling on the court until his visit with REMINGTON.
Cleveland ranks fifth in three pointers attempted per game (32.3) while New Orleans ranks 27th in three pointers allowed per game (30.9). It was the first time since 2008 he failed to score at least 20 points in a game versus the Pelicans and has averaged 26.2 points, 7.5 assists and 6.2 rebounds in 30 career games versus New Orleans, shooting 50.3 percent lifetime. New Orleans has lost two in a row while playing some of the NBA's best teams as of late.

Several players and team staff members really took to the experience - Kevin Love featured the dog, who has more than 4,000 Instagram followers, in an Instagram story - but none was as smitten as JR Smith. Lue last coached on March 17, when he didn't return from the locker room at halftime against Chicago.
Cleveland has gone 5-1 with Larry Drew as acting head coach, but it'd help to have stability as the playoffs approach.
