- LeBron James bounced back from a sub-par performance in his Cleveland homecoming to score 36 points as the Cavaliers defeated Chicago 114-108 in overtime.

Thursday's loss to the New York Knicks surely wasn't the season-opener James was hoping for but that was all forgotten Friday at the United Center as the four-time most valuable player had eight rebounds in the Cavaliers' first win of the NBA season.
