CLEVELAND - LeBron James didnt stop after making a turnover, hustling down the floor to make up for his miscue. 2018 Green NFL Jerseys .Last week in Washington, he stayed behind and watched. Not this time.James got back on defence, and the Cavs got back at the Wizards.We owed them, Kyrie Irving said.James scored 29 points, Kevin Love added 21 and Irving had 18 as Cleveland exacted a little revenge on Washington with a 113-87 win over the Wizards on Wednesday night.Five days after they were embarrassed in a 91-78 loss in Washington, the Cavs controlled this one from the start and got back to .500.James led the way, adding 10 rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes. The four-time MVP, who called his team fragile during a recent four-game losing streak, was energized from the start as he powered to the basket and imposed his will on the Wizards.We played basketball the right way, James said. We shared the ball. We defended. We sustained effort for as close to 48 minutes as possible. Im very happy and pleased with the way weve played the past two games.With Cleveland up by 19, James took a seat with 7:52 left, getting an early start on the Thanksgiving holiday, when he plans to watch his beloved Dallas Cowboys.Rasual Butler scored 23 and Paul Pierce had 15 for the Wizards, who only got six points from leading scorer John Wall. The speedy point guard had 28 in last weeks dominant win over Cleveland and came in averaging 27 in his last three games against the Cavs. Wall attempted just six shots while being closely watched by several defenders.They hit us in the mouth first, Wall said. Every team plays different at home. Whenever we got close they made the big shot and the big play.James missed 13 of 21 shots last week in D.C., and was guilty of quitting on a play and standing under Clevelands basket as the Wizards went on a 5-on-4 break the other way. In the first quarter Wednesday, James lost the ball trying a crossover dribble, but he didnt give up, racing back and stopping an easy bucket.You just cant give up on plays, he said. It starts with me.Cleveland coach David Blatt said the ugly loss at Washington last week got our attention. The Cavs committed 19 turnovers, couldnt contain Wall and shot a season-low 36 per cent while being outplayed at both ends before a national TV audience. Afterward, Blatt said his team was a little bit in the dark.The Cavs seem to be emerging from it. Their ball movement was better, they helped each other on defence and the Cavs didnt stand around waiting for James to carry them.I thought we played the way we should play, said Blatt, who cracked several jokes during his postgame interview session. Its been a while since I laughed.Wizards coach Randy Wittman was disappointed in his teams defence, which usually leads to fast-break points. Washington had just two against the Cavs.Our defensive pressure the last two games has been gone for whatever reason, Wittman said. Weve got to find that back.TURKEY TIMEJames said he plans to break his strict diet to enjoy turkey and all the trimmings on Thursday.Ive got to treat myself every now and then, said James, adding dinner is not scheduled around the Cowboys-Eagles game.But my kids being away from me is scheduled around the Cowboys game, he said. I need peace and quiet. Its a huge game.TIP-INSWizards: G Bradley Beal made his first start this season.

Pierce is 62 points behind Reggie Miller for 16th on the career scoring list.Cavaliers: Irving told Clevelands coaching staff he wants to guard the oppositions best perimeter player, which meant his assignment was Wall. I just have to do the job at stopping the head of the snake, Irving said. ... Tristan Thompson and Wall exchanged words in the third quarter and drew technical fouls while helping renew this scrappy rivalry. Were good, said Thompson, downplaying the confrontation. We talked after, too.UP NEXTWizards: Host New Orleans on Saturday in the first of four straight home games.Cavaliers: Host Milwaukee on Friday. Womens Green NFL Jerseys . - Florida State has suspended Jameis Winston for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday, extending its initial punishment of one half after the quarterback made offensive and vulgar comments about female anatomy earlier this week. Youth Green NFL Jerseys . -- LeBron James warned the Orlando Magic to stop double-teaming him and ignoring James Jones. http://www.nflrookieshop.com/ . The Arena das Dunas in the northeastern city of Natal sustained minor damage during the protests, but demonstrators stayed away on Sunday and officials said the stadium passed its first test, with only minor adjustments needed going forward.PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Martin Kaymer stopped thinking, started swinging and played his way into the record book Thursday in The Players Championship. Kaymer missed only two fairways. He putted for birdie on all but one hole. And the former PGA champion finished with four straight birdies to become only the fourth player to shoot 9-under 63 on the Stadium Course at the TPC Sawgrass, giving him a two-shot lead over Russell Henley. Kaymer took advantage of a perfect day for scoring -- warm weather, hardly any wind and soft greens. There were 28 rounds in the 60s, which made the score by Adam Scott look even worse. With another chance -- his best one yet -- to get to No. 1 in the world for the first time, Scott finished with a pair of double bogeys from shots in the water and signed for a 77. It was his highest opening round at The Players since his first trip in 2002. Kaymer was flawless, hitting whatever shot he felt he needed. His final blow was a hybrid that ran through the ninth green and into a bunker, leaving a simple up-and-down for birdie. He had a 29 on the back, the first player in the 32-year history at Sawgrass to break 30 on either nine. Roberto Castro also opened with a 63 last year. The only others with 63 were Greg Norman in the first round in 1994, and Fred Couples in the third round in 1992. "Its just a nice bonus," Kaymer said. "Its only the first round of a long, long tournament. Its nice to make some history. No one shot 29 on that golf course before." Kaymer would not have seemed like a good candidate. He has not won since the HSBC Champions in Shanghai at the end of 2011. He hasnt had a top 10 all year. But the 29-year-old German has felt his swing start to come together in recent weeks. His name has been featured on leaderboards more and more. And he had a simple explanation. "I stopped thinking," Kaymer said, a former world No. 1. "I thought a lot the last two years about swing changes ... that every shot I made I reflect on it, what I did wrong, what I did right." A few weeks before the Masters, he spent time with longtime swing coach Gunter Kessler in Phoenix, and then they had another good session in Germany. "And then it just clicked a little bit,"t; he said. Green NFL Jerseys Discount. "I thought, OK, I know I can hit pretty much every shot when I needed to hit it. If its a draw, if its a fade, low or high, I know that I can do it. Its just a matter of getting the confidence on the golf course and then letting it happen and really doing it." Henley, who won the Honda Classic in a four-way playoff in March, made birdie on half of his holes to atone for one big mistake. He hooked a tee shot into the water on No. 7 and compounded that with a three-putt for double bogey. But he answered with six birdies on the back nine for a 65. "I knew I was playing well and felt really comfortable on the greens," Henley said. "But it was one of those back nines where you get to 18 and I just realized that I had a putt for 7 under. So that was pretty cool." Bae Sang-Moon had a 66. The group at 67 included Sergio Garcia, who spent last year in a war or words with Tiger Woods that lasted right up until the Spaniard hit three balls into the water on the two closing holes and Woods walked away with the win. Garcia looked sharp, happy and was confident in his game. And he had loads of company. Lee Westwood, 20-year-old Jordan Spieth and U.S. Open champion Justin Rose also were at 67. The group at 68 included Ernie Els and Dustin Johnson. There were 67 rounds under par, and the scoring average of 71.99 was the eighth-lowest for an opening round at The Players Championship. But it wasnt easy for everyone. Rory McIlroy made three bogeys over his last seven holes and tumbled to a 70. That was nearly as bad as Phil Mickelson. Coming off a 76 in the final round at Quail Hollow last week, he started his round by missing a 3-foot par putt and shot 75. Of the four players with a mathematical chance to reach No. 1, only Masters champion Bubba Watson broke 70. He had a 69, while Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar each had a 71. Only four players had a worse score than Scott. Kaymer reached No. 1 three years ago, and then sought to change his swing because he could only hit a fade. He prefers to play by feel, not by mechanics. A swing change left him little choice but to think too much. Now, he can only hope its as simple as see the shot and hit the ball.
