LeBron had 25 points and 12 dimes in a Christmas day Cavaliers-Heat matchup that looked much more interesting at the beginning of the season. The Eastern Conference's past two champions were a combined 20-35 entering the game, which Cleveland won 96-82 with a strong second half. Dwyane Wade's foul-line 8-for-16 didn't help Miami's cause.
While the Cavs' starting backcourt continued to struggle, four other teammates scored in the double figures for LeBron, who is frustrated with his team's sub-.500 play: "Right now, it's not looking good for us." Asked what he had received for Christmas, the star answered, "Nothing. I don't need nothing."
