Even as hot as the Minnesota Timberwolves had been coming into Wednesday night's game in Cleveland they were no match for the Cavaliers, falling 125-97 Wednesday night.

LeBron James looked like 'The King.' He scored a game-high 27 points, dished out 12 assists and grabbed eight rebounds. And just when it looked like the Wolves might be trying to get back into the game in the third quarter, he did this.

Minnesota was outscored 62-37 in the second half. Karl-Anthony Towns had 26 points and 12 boards in the loss for the Wolves.

The Wolves play at Detroit Friday night.
