Don't miss LeBron's fiery return to Cleveland to play the Cavaliers or the James Harden led Houston Rockets offense this week on ESPN!Last week the NBA continued on ESPN with the Dallas Mavericks outclassing the Houston Rockets 123-120 and the San Antonio Spurs added the Memphis Grizzlies to their 10 game winning streak. Lets see what you can look forward to this week on Foxtel. Cleveland Cavaliers vs Miami Heat Time & Date: Thursday 28th November from Quicken Loans Arena Coverage: LIVE at 11:30am AEDT Matthew Dellavedova since being injected into the starting line-up has added some much needed hustle to the Cleveland Cavaliers team, now as a team they've got to compete against the Miami Heat as they come to town. No one will ever forget the years LeBron James spent in Cleveland and the ugly unfolding of his departure, which will always loom when LeBron is in Cleveland. In recent times he's had no problems putting aside his past to torch the Cavs. Sporting a career high field goal percentage of 59.7 percent, LeBron has been the man as Wade has been resting on back-to-back games more frequently. There isn't a defender on the Cavs that has the strength, size or lateral quickness to keep LeBron in check. Cleveland to pose a threat must push the ball inside and get Andrew Bynum, Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson banging in the paint. If the Cavs stray away from this tactic and are to loose with the ball, the Miami defence will run riot and steal in bunches. Bynum played his best game of the season on Sunday against the Spurs, posting 16 points and 6 rebounds in just 21 minutes. Bynum will have the green light to create havoc for Miami. Watch For: Kyrie Irving must pick it up shooting wise as his shooting percentage is at 41 percent. No team can make the playoffs when their star player is shooting them into the ground, just ask JR Smith and the New York Knicks.
Houston Rockets vs Brooklyn Nets Time & Date: Saturday 30th November from The Toyota Center Coverage: LIVE at 12:00pm AEDT With a 9-5 record the Houston Rockets are balling offensively and it's hard to find a silver lining to the start of the Brooklyn Nets 3-10 start. The Nets are 14th in the Eastern Conference and only the Milwaukee Bucks (2-10) and the Utah Jazz (1-12) are have worse records. Injuries have decimated their opening games as Joe Johnson has been the only healthy starter all season, he himself finally put it together by scoring 34 points and 8 three's against the Detroit Pistons but that still was a loss for the Nets. Houston's won six times at home and have only lost twice there this season. Apart from a James Harden foot injury forcing him to miss a few games, the Rockets are relatively healthy. Jeremy Lin has been scoring in bunches when given 30+ minutes a night, putting up lots of three's and overall shooting above 50% from the field. Either Jeremy Lin or James Harden usually put up at least 20 points a game and that's exciting Houston basketball. Watch For: Terrence Jones. Replacing Omer Asik in the rotation has provided Jones a spot he's thriving with. In his last 4 games to date he has averaged 18.5 points, 8.25 rebounds, 1.75 blocks on 67.3 FG%. He's exploding right now.
