LeBron: Focused on Cavs' streak, not Celtics

The Cavaliers overcame a 15-point deficit to beat the Clippers on Friday and extend their win streak to four games. LeBron James said they must continue to play well and not worry about how teams such as the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics are doing.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Doc Rivers on the difference between 23-year-old and (soon to be) 33-year-old LeBron James: "I don't see a difference except for he's smarter. I'm amazed, really. We were laughing about it, it wasn't so funny to us watching film. Most players when they get to his age are smart enough now they see everything. But usually when they get to that age, they're too old to do anything about it. Kevin McHale had that comment. ‘If I had the knowledge now but my body at 22, I would have been the greatest player of all time.' LeBron has the knowledge of all those years and he's still top two, three athletic in the league. He has both going for him. He can beat you with his brain, he can beat you with his power. It's a daunting task when you watch him on film."
