NEW YORK — Starting LeBron James at point guard resulted in a victory for the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.
The Cavaliers will see if they can produce another win with James at point guard Wednesday when they visit the Brooklyn Nets.
On Tuesday, the Cavaliers improved to 3-1 when James scored 34 points and handed out 13 assists during a 119-112 victory over the visiting Chicago Bulls. Although James often serves as a ball-handler, it was believed to be the first time he was listed at starting point guard since 2012 with the Miami Heat.
“I’m looking for my guys a little bit more (when) starting at the point, especially in transition, I’m being more of a precise, precision passer and I’m not kinda full speed ahead in transition,” James said. “I’m kinda looking at what’s going on and getting my guys the ball, but for me, I just try to stay in attack mode when need be and if I see the hot hand start going for my guys and getting them the ball.”
Derrick Rose started Cleveland’s first two games at point guard, wins over Boston and at Milwaukee. By the third game, Jose Calderon was starting at point guard when Rose sprained his left ankle.
Rose didn’t play Tuesday and Calderon originally was projected to start.
