The Cleveland Cavaliers lost their last game the other night, falling to the New York Knicks in a tough loss, but they are still one of the best teams in the East.
Their record is currently 15-9 and they are behind only the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference standings.
They are about to play one of their most exciting games of the season on Tuesday, and it’s not because their opponent will be more talented or successful.
LeBron James plays basketball against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland tonight.
A special performance is on the horizon.

The Cavs are going to play the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night in Cleveland.
We all know what that means: LeBron James is back in Cleveland and he’s going to be playing hard against the team that drafted him.
The King Is Back
We might be getting a monster game from both the Cavs and the Lakers.
James has always played very well when he comes back home and his teammate Anthony Davis has been on a tear lately and was just named Western Conference Player of the Week.
But the Cavaliers have a lot to prove too.
They are finally as good as they were when James was part of the roster and they want to show the whole world how far they have come.
What better evidence of their growth and power than defeating James in Cleveland?
There are many people who are going to be paying close attention to Tuesday’s game and it’ll be broadcast nationally on TNT.
The Lakers have been surging lately but the Cavaliers have been consistent from the get-go.
Both teams have a lot to prove and both will come to play hard on Tuesday night.
