"I'm being more of a precise, precision passer and I'm not kind of full speed ahead in transition", James said.

James scored 34 points to go along with 13 assists, marking the sixth career game he has scored at least 20 points with 10 assists at the point guard position over 15 seasons, according to ESPN.

With Derrick Rose (ankle) hurting and Jose Calderon ineffective, the Cavs rolled with LeBron at the point and he had fun running with the Bulls.

Thompson had five points and nine rebounds in his first start, with seven of the boards coming in the third period when he provided some much-needed energy. The Cleveland Cavaliers were able to battle back and steal the win thanks to an excellent performance from their point guard LeBron James.

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. He set season highs in shots attempted and made, 3-pointers, assists and points. Kyle Korver also added in 11 bench points on 3 of 6 shooting from deep. Former Cavs point guard Kay Felder had 13 points, all in the first half. The Knicks, however, remain winless through their first three games of the season, with Enes Kanter (16/19/0) being their best player on the night.
