What to Watch For: Cleveland at New York...

Lebron returns to MSG tonight to take on his potentially future teammates. The Knicks have dropped both meetings to the Cavs this season, but lately, they've been playing well. New York's won 6 of its last 8 and find themselves only a half-game out of the playoffs right now. Look for Lebron to try to "one-up" Kobe, as the following act to Bryant's 61-point performance two nights ago. But don't expect him to do so. I'm going to go out on a limb and say Lebron will not put up 62+ tonight at MSG. The game could be good though. The Knicks are turning things around, and the Cavs are nursing some injuries. However, the Knicks seem to bow down everytime Lebron is in their presence. Perhaps if they stopped groveling, and showed King James he could be joining a team on the rise in 2010, he'd consider coming to New York.

It'll be less embarassing than the last time the Cavs came to town (119-101), but expect James to receive more cheers than the Knicks and the Cavs to score more points.

I really didn't expect him to go off for 52. Not to mention a triple-double in the process. All hail King James once again. It was a solid follow up to Kobe's 62.
