With Kyrie Irving going off for such a big game, James never really had to take over like he has at other points this season, so don't be surprised to see his numbers increase as the Cavaliers move further into the playoffs and he's relied upon even more.

James (rest) will not play in Sunday's game against the Celtics, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

The next opportunity for James to return to the court will be against the Pistons on Monday, although the 30-year-old should be considered a game-time decision.
