For LeBron and the Cavs, this was more like it

Random observations on the Cavaliers' big 114-108 road win over the Chicago Bulls in overtime Friday: 1. LeBron James scored 36 points. He still needs to work on his ball-handling.

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs

One: They had trouble clearing their own zone and it took eight and a half minutes to register their first shot on Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier. This is not coming out and setting the tone of the game. Toronto dictated the pace of the game. Two: Curtis McElhinney has shown very little rebound control in the last two games.
