Once again LeBron James failed to carry his team (Melo Team) to a win despite having Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony as teammates in their exhibition game earlier today against Tyreke Evans, Kyle Lowry, and Hakim Warrick- The Team Philly. The final score of this game was 131-122 in favor of Team Philly.
The game was dominated by Team Philly right from the start up to the finish. Tyreke Evans was able to out class Chris Paul (CP3) in this game primarily because he seemed to have a better body condition than CP3 as the latter only made 3 out of 12 shots from the field. Tyreke's endurance and his ball handling were just too overwhelming on the part of Team Melo's guards. Tyreke had 18 points and 18 rebounds in this game. His teammate Hakim Warrick added 19 points and 12 boards in this game.
Team Philly's well balanced scoring was able to overcome Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James' huge scoring outputs. Carmelo is not yet in his usual game shape that's why he wasn't able to keep up with the speed of the forwards of Team Philly. But despite his poor game shape, he had 31 points and 17 rebounds in this game. LeBron on the other hand was the brightest star in this game. He had 43 points and 23 rebounds in this game but still his team lost to Team Philly. I guess that's the curse of LeBron James. Yes he can score at will, but he can't score a win.
Here are some of the game highlights that wowed the crowd. The videos came from YouTube.
