In a surprisingly closely contested game, LeBron James had 20 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists to help the Cleveland Cavaliers slip past the lowly Philadelphia 76ers 87-86. "You find a way to win," James said to reporters after the game. "This is a winning league. No matter however you gotta do it, you do it."

While James didn't win any style points for Sunday's performance, he gets a pat on the back for his choice of footwear. He debuted a PE variation of the 'Double Helix' Nike LeBron 12, featuring Hyperposite that's a little more red than pink and accents that are a little more gold than volt — perhaps a move to promote the kicks while sticking with uniform guidelines.
