Cavs in Japan update

Posted by disappointmentzone on 20 August 2006

The US crushed China this morning, 121-90. It took all of four minutes before the US had its first double-digit lead, and at one point were up by 36. With the victory the US improves to 2-0 in the FIBA World Championship. LeBron James played 22 minutes, scored 11 (5/10 from the field) points, and had seven rebounds and four steals. In yesterday’s 111-100 defeat of Puerto Rico LBJ went for 15 and six.

The other Cleveland Cav playing in Japan is Anderson Varejao, who plays for Brazil. In Brazil’s 77-83 loss to Australia yesterday Varejao had 15 points (5/14) and 10 rebounds with four blocks. Today Brazil stomped on Qatar, 97-66, and Varejao had 13 points (5/8) and seven rebounds in 25 minutes.
