Contact

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue has said he’s expecting LeBron James to play his first NBA game this weekend.

Lue also said that James has been working on some improvements to his shooting stroke and has been taking more shots.

James had his first career triple-double of 32 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists against the Lakers on Saturday, the Cavaliers’ third win in five games.

He has averaged 27.5 points, 12.4 rebounds and 7.5 assists in the series.

James’ shot chart on Sunday showed him taking 41.6 percent of his shots.

He was shooting 39.5 percent during his first five NBA seasons before that.

The Cavs beat the Lakers 108-100 on Friday, their first win in Los Angeles since 2003.

James and his teammates had plenty of trouble with the Lakers, who have shot just 39.7 percent from 3-point range during their two-game losing streak.

James led the Cavaliers with 31 points, but had just five points and five assists in 29 minutes of play.

The Cavs are 3-1 on the road this season.
