Point LeBron? Point LeBron

Due to Derrick Rose's injury and Dwyane Wade being moved to the bench, LeBron James made the start at point guard for the Cavs on Tuesday night. James has long been the de facto point guard on the team, but he seemed to enjoy acquiring the official designation. LeBron finished with 34 points on 13 of 20 shooting and 13 assists compared to just two turnovers while leading the Cavs to victory.

Career night for Gordon

Aaron Gordon put up a career-high 36 points Tuesday ... through three quarters. He ended up with 41, and hit a clutch go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute to help seal the Magic victory.

It wasn't his only highlight of the night, though. You know Gordon's always good for a couple of dunks.
