Welcome To The NBA Kevin Durant!

From one young superstar to another, LeBron James showed Kevin Durant how it's done by scoring 22 points, and the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't wait until the fourth quarter to put away the Seattle SuperSonics 95-79 on Tuesday night.

James, who scored 24 points in the fourth on Sunday when the Cavs (18-17) rallied for a win in Toronto, was able to sit out the final 8:36 as Cleveland coasted to its sixth win in seven games and moved over .500 for the first time since Nov. 30.

Durant, Seattle's silky smooth rookie, scored 24 points and showed off some of his blossoming pro game while being guarded at times by James, who has become close friends with the No. 2 overall pick.Durant sprained his left ankle while making a jump shot with 7:31 left in the fourth quarter. He untied his sneaker and briefly went to the bench before limping to Seattle's locker room for treatment and did not return.

I don't know the status of Durant's injury, but since they labeled it as a sprained ankle, he should hopefully return to the lineup soon. They need the player who will soon become rookie of the year playing as much as possible for them.
