Cavaliers star LeBron James big night came after a position changed. Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue played James at point guard in the win against Chicago. Dwyane Wade was shifted back to the bench and J.R. Smith returned to the starting lineup in what is expected to be a permanent switch. Tristan Thompson also was back with the first five at center, but Lue didn't say whether that would continue.
