LeBron James finished with 33 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and six steals in this his 1,100th career regular season game, and with four 3s passed Tim Hardaway (1,542 3s) for 23rd all time in career 3s. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Should the Cleveland Cavaliers trade for DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers?
