by Jordan Fickling, sports editor 

LeBron James is back in business once again at his new team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, after scoring 26 points in his last game against the Pacers. Can he continue to have an impact on his team and his teammates for the rest of the season, and stay healthy and fit throughout the year? Cavalier fans sure hope so. Picture by Christopher Dadic

LeBron James made his return to Cleveland’s lineup after sitting out on the Cavaliers victory over Milwaukee Bucks.

James scored 26 points, 10 of them came in the third quarter.  In addition power forward Tristan Thompson and point guard AJ Price also contributed for a combined 20 points.

“Cleveland is looking very impressive in the preseason. They’re undefeated and they still manage to give each of their vital players time to rest in preparation for the regular season,” senior Jason Chen said.

Cleveland is undefeated in the preseason. They’ve become strong candidates for the Eastern Conference finals due to their recent acquisitions of Power Forward Kevin Love, Small Forward James and Small Forward Shawn Marion.

Indiana Pacers, the NBA’s Eastern Conference finalists also made a strong impression. Without their star forward “PG-13” and Shooting Guard Lance Stephenson, Power Forward David West stepped up and scored 15 points.

Pacer’s Point Guard George Hill, scored 11 points. Hill is expected to play more minutes due to Paul George’s leg injury.

“It remains to be seen how Indiana will fare in the regular season. There are many new threats in the Eastern Conference and losing their two key players are an issue. This season is going to make or break the Pacers,” sophomore Steven Iglesias said.

NBA preseason continues to roll on as the next games  for both the Cavaliers and Pacers will be against Power Forward Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks.
