LeBron James scores 25 in first quarter against Cavaliers

Mar 18, 2014, 8:36 PM EDT

LeBron James scored 25 points in the first quarter of the Heat’s game against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. That would put him on pace to score – hmm, let’s see, carry the one – 100.

It seems that would match a record or something.

LeBron shot 10-for-11, including 5-of-6 on 3-pointers, in the opening period.

He scored “just” six points in the second quarter, dropping him well behind the Wilt Chamberlain’s pace. Still, he finished with 43 points against his former team.

LeBron’s final 18 points weren’t exactly exception, but here’s video of his masterful first 25:

    “Probably won’t catch Wilt”

    Lebron is an all time great. But, he’s no Wilt the Stilt.

    That’s it. He felt like he was at “home”. He’s going back….(sarcasm)

    My fear was confirmed! Wade had a set back last game, watch the highlight when he dived for the ball and his knee collided with a rocket player and he momentarily grabbed it, right then I knew what happened. He sat out because hes hurt

    He’s been such an underrated three point shooter for years. But he’s been this way since high school – if he makes two in a row, watch out.

      He’s a career 34% three point shooter. How is that underrated? He’s an average three point shooter, statistically speaking.

        Because in some games – like this one – or his 61 point game – or his games against Milwaukee – or Game 7 vs Spurs – or last year against the Hornets – or the 2012 All-Star game – he just won’t miss! Completely unconscious. Now, in other games he can’t hit any, so it evens out – hence career 34%. But when he’s on he’s as deadly as any three point shooter in the game.

        In any case, over the last three years he’s been shooting 39% from three, which is very good indeed.

        Right…but he’s career 34% three point shooter. Your least favourite player ever, Kobe, is…a 33% career three point shooter. So yeah….
