In Game 1 against the Bulls, LeBron James came out looking to get his teammates involved. Nice sentiment. But with Kevin Love and J.R. Smith out it meant Mike Miller, James Jones and Shawn Marion — all guys LeBron pushed for the Cavs to get last summer — were asked to fill in and none could. The result was a slow start from which the Cavaliers would never recover.

In Game 2, LeBron just put the team on his back and said “let’s go.” He finished with 33 and just overpowered the Bulls defense. It had to be the headband.

The series is headed to Chicago for Game 3, but the Bulls have some tough questions to answer as long as this LeBron keeps showing up (and his teammates keep knocking down shots as they did Wednesday night).
