NBA Preseason Day 11: LeBron James makes preseason debut in loss; OKC wrap up schedule with win
Chicago Bulls 108-94 Cleveland Cavaliers
LeBron James hadn't played in any of the Cavaliers' earlier three preseason games, as he was nursing his ankle, however, even his return to the line-up couldn't help the team register their first win. He put up 17 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out three dimes in 30 minutes of action. He also recorded eight turnovers in his first NBA action since Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals.
The other big contributor from the Cavs' starters was Derrick Rose, who registered 12 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists in his 27 minutes on the floor. The defending Eastern Conference Champions play their one remaining preseason game on Friday (Saturday IST) against the Magic in Orlando.
For the young and rebuilding Bulls, this was their third win of the five preseason games played so far. Justin Holiday was their top performer with 28 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 steals. Chicago also has just one preseason game left and that's against the Toronto Raptors on Friday (Saturday IST).
