JR Smith to play against Bulls; LeBron James moves to point guard

Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Line-ups, preview and prediction 10/24/2017

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James scored 34 points and handed out 13 assists in Tuesday night's 119-112 win over the Chicago Bulls.

"I think the best thing for me personally is ever since I was a kid I've always learned every position on the floor", James told reporters after the game. "I know every single play from every position".

Australian small forward Joe Ingles hand limited impact in his 18 minutes for the Jazz with three points on one-from-five-shooting. As planned, J.R. Smith started at shooting guard in place of Dwyane Wade. While the starting unit will get points, it will be up to the bench to be able to keep the game in check, until James and the first-teamers return. Not many guys can guard him. Throughout his career, Robin Lopez has been the more offensively challenged of the Lopez twins and was more of a role player on that end of the court.

CJ McCollum scored 16 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and Portland closed the game with a 9-0 run to win its home opener over New Orleans. But with a Bulls backcourt struggling to score points, the 7-footer has become a viable option in their half-court sets.

It was a sensational finish and the goal not only doubled United's lead but also doubled Lingard's tally for the game. He placed a header from the edge of the box perfectly to convert a Matteo Darmian cross.

Isaiah Thomas and Derrick Rose remain sidelined for the game. After a slow first half, James (34/2/13) was 13-of-20 from the field and 4-of-5 from the free throw line to extend the Cavs' record to 3-1 while the Bulls move to 0-3.

Evan Turner and Damian Lillard each scored 13 points, and Ed Davis added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Trail Blazers.

The first period was eerily similar to the Cavs' ugly loss to Orlando on Saturday, in which they fell behind by as many as 21 points, but this time they managed to regroup. "Seventeen threes again where guys are just looking at us, staring us down and raising for shots".

James, who went 9-for-12 from the field and was flawless on four 3-pointers, scored 23 points to offset invisible and scoreless halves by Thompson and Smith, as well as big performances by the Bulls' Markkanen, Holiday and Felder, who combined for 43 points over the opening two quarters. Markkanen is the first rookie in league history to make 10 treys in his first three games. Rudy Gobert scored 12 points, and Thabo Sefolosha had 11 points and 12 rebounds for Utah. "We can't continue to do that".
