CLEVELAND - Shortly after showering, and maybe rinsing off a forgettable performance, LeBron James smiled and laughed as he dressed for a flight to Chicago. Youth Chargers Jerseys .It was one game, he said.James moved on quickly.It may take Cleveland a little longer.This championship-deprived city, which had waited months to celebrate James return from Miami with a rip-roaring party, was in a state of shock following Clevelands 95-90 loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday night.Given a heros welcome with a ground-shaking ovation, James flopped.He missed 10 shots, committed eight turnovers and looked nothing like the four-time league MVP and transcendent player capable of carrying a franchise.One game. One really bad game.Im glad its over, he said.Following an emotional pregame, which included him reprising the signature chalk toss routine he made famous during his first stint with the Cavs, James could hardly do anything right. He missed wide-open shots, forced others and made uncharacteristic errors. During one possession, he thought Kyrie Irving was going one way and Clevelands All-Star guard went the other as James pass sailed into the seats.My turnovers, some of them were careless and some of them were chemistry, said James, who scored 17 points in 43 minutes. I was throwing passes where I was hoping where some of my teammates were and they were not there. Those things will come.Irving had 22 points. Kevin Love, the other third of Clevelands Big 3, added 19 points and 14 rebounds in his Cavs debut.Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points for New York. The Knicks rebounded to give rookie coach Derek Fisher his first win after being embarrassed by Chicago at home in their season opener.James dismissed the notion he was trying too hard to make sure his homecoming ended in victory.I didnt press, he said. I didnt do much.The Cavs knew it would take time to develop chemistry. James along with first-year coach David Blatt had preached during the preseason that there would be tough times ahead.They just didnt say it would be after one game. Heres five other things that emerged from a night that didnt end the way Clevelanders planned:NO OFFENSE: Blatt has spent the past month installing an uptempo offence, but the Cavs havent embraced it.They had far too many empty possessions and lacked any cohesion.We got static, the former international coach said following his first NBA game. Were really good when we move the ball. When we play without motion and without ball energy, thats exactly what will happen.Also, Clevelands bench was outscored 41-12. Blatt said he should have given reserves Shawn Marion (10 minutes) and Mike Miller (3 minutes) more playing time.BULLS-EYE: The Cavs dont have any time to feel sorry for themselves as theyll take on the Bulls, who are expected to challenge Cleveland for Eastern Conference supremacy.That is what is great about this league, James said. You can play as a bad as I did tonight and bounce back.SLICK KNICKS: Talk about crashing the party.New York wasnt intimidated by the electric atmosphere and the Knicks made several big shots in the second half to spoil Clevelands big night. Iman Shumpert and Jason Smith scored 12 apiece and J.R. Smith added 11 for the Knicks, who led by nine with 3 minutes left and held off Clevelands rally.It was a great win for us, said Anthony, who made a crucial jumper over James with 25.9 seconds left. It tested us mentally to see how we were going to bounce back from last night. We did a great job of putting that behind us and focusing.NEW DEALS: The Cavs are believed to be close to finalizing contract extensions for centres Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson. Both players are the final years of their deals. Theres a midnight Friday deadline for the Cavs to get something done with Thompson, a 2011 first-round pick. Varejao has played his entire career in Cleveland and is close to James.STAR WARS: James homecoming brought out some big names, including teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan, film director and Knicks super fan Spike Lee, Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and R&B artist Usher, who sang the national anthem and was accompanied in the final verses by the Cleveland crowd. Kyzir White Stitched Jersey . -- Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick shot a second-round 69 to take the lead after 36 holes and former LPGA great Annika Sorenstam and Chad Pfeifer, who lost his left leg above the knee serving in Iraq, are among several players in contention in the American Century Championship tournament on Saturday. Pink Chargers Jerseys . The 48th-ranked Williams made her first appearance in Dubai since she won her second straight title here in 2010. Shed missed the last three years either because of injury or Sjogrens Syndrome. . -- Jacksonvilles offensive makeover is just getting starting.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Marty Havlat scored three goals for the first time in nearly nine years, and the San Jose Sharks prevented Colorado from clinching the Central Division title with a 5-1 victory over the Avalanche on Friday night. Dan Boyle and Patrick Marleau also scored, and Alex Stalock made 32 saves for the Sharks, who had lost four of six to fall short in their race for first place in the Pacific Division. Patrick Bordeleau scored the lone goal for the Avalanche, who lost for the first time in regulation since March 21 against Boston. Colorado had gone 8-0-1 in its last nine games to move into a tie for first with St. Louis. The Avalanche can win the division either by beating Anaheim on Sunday night in the regular-season finale or with a regulation loss by St. Louis earlier Sunday against Detroit. Colorado needs the Ducks to lose Saturday in Los Angeles to have a chance of finishing in the top spot in the Western Conference. San Jose is locked into the second seed in the Pacific Division and will open the playoffs at home next week against Los Angeles. The Sharks moved two points ahead of Chicago in the race for home-ice advantage in a possible conference final matchup. Despite the significant stakes in the game for Colorado, coach Patrick Roy opted to give third-string goalie Reto Berra his second start since joining the team last month. The move backfired quickly as Berra allowed two goals on the first five shots he faced and was replaced by Jean-Sebastien Giguere. Boyle opened the scoring with a well-placed shot from the faceoff circle just over 3 minutes into the game. Marleau ended Berras night 10:11 into the game with a slap shot from the slot for his 33rd goal. Throwback Chargers Jerseys. . The Avalanche got on the board late in the second when Bracken Kearns failed to clear the puck from the defensive zone, leading to a 2-on-1 down low. Maxime Talbot slid a pass to Bordeleau, who shot a one-timer into the empty net. Colorado nearly tied it after killing a high-sticking penalty to P.A. Parenteau. But Stalock stopped Parenteau on a breakaway just after he left the penalty box. Havlat sealed the game with three goals in the third for his sixth career hat trick and first since Nov. 2, 2005, for Ottawa at Buffalo. Havlat scored on a deflection, a breakaway and then added an empty-net goal with 4:56 to play. The big performance came when he was reunited on a line with Marleau and Logan Couture and one game after he was a healthy scratch in a crucial loss at Anaheim that ended the Sharks chances at a division title. The game was also notable for the Sharks because rookie Tomas Hertl returned to the ice for the first time since a knee injury in December. Hertl got a loud ovation his first time on the ice, and he generated a few good scoring chances. Both teams also lost defencemen to injuries during the game with San Joses Scott Hannan not returning after being hit high by Bordeleau in the first period. Colorados Tyson Barrie was also hit high in the first by Jason Demers. Barrie stayed in the game for the rest of the period but didnt play after that because of an upper-body injury. NOTES: Parenteau (knee) returned to the lineup after missing 15 games. ... Sharks D Marc-Edouard Vlasic sat out to rest for the playoffs.
