SEEN AND HEARD

PRAISING LEBRON: Cavaliers coach Paul Silas on superstar LeBron James, the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double: “My God, he’s just amazing. He’s special. You don’t find many guys who have the knowledge and the athleticism, the whole package. The good Lord blessed him with everything, and I can only think of one other player, [Michael] Jordan, who he blessed with the whole things.”

BLAKE READY: Backup point guard Steve Blake is ready to play and likely will be activated for tomorrow’s home game against Philadelphia. Blake was placed on the injured list with a sprained left ankle on Jan. 6.

DIXON SICK: Guard Juan Dixon missed his second game with the flu. In his last five games he had averaged 18.8 points.
