#LeBron James put up one of the NBA’s all-time greatest regular season performances against the Washington Wizards on Friday night, finishing with 57 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. This was a historic performance that had many NBA fans, media and players talking, especially on social media. It’s no surprise that the second highest scoring game of King James [VIDEO]’ career caught a lot of attention, especially from his own teammates, who expressed their appreciation for his performances in post-game interviews and on social media.

The Cleveland #Cavaliers 130-122 victory over Washington Wizards stopped a four-game losing streak which included losses against 2017 non-playoff teams, including the likes of the Brooklyn Nets, the New Orleans Pelicans, the New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers.

This was a disappointing stretch for the Cavaliers, and Cavaliers superstar LeBron James made sure to put an end to it with his huge performance. Cavaliers forward, #Tristan Thompson recently spoke about the King’s performance.

Tristan tweets his appreciation for LeBron’s season-high

The Cleveland Cavaliers have recently suffered a troubling injury to their star power forward Tristan Thompson. TT is scheduled to miss action for about a month due to a left calf strain. This came at a bad time for the Cavaliers who were on a losing streak and had already suffered injuries to key players including Isaiah Thomas [VIDEO] and Iman Shumpert. But Thompson still took time while recovering to send a message to King James via his Twitter account, appreciating the King’s performance.

Tristan Thompson has been centered in trade talks for the Cavaliers, but still holds a lot of importance to the Cavs team as the organization has turned down past offers for the start forward, including for a trade for Carmelo Anthony.

So Tristan’s value to the team is clearly evident, and he, in turn, sends that same appreciation back to his Cavaliers team.

Tristan will be back in a month

Tristan Thompson was drafted to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the fourth overall draft pick in the 2011 NBA Draft and has made a name for himself for being one of the most invincible players in the league. Before missing a game last season, he had held the record for most consecutive games played in the NBA, passing up Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan who previously held the top spot. But this season, after suffering a left leg injury, he will be held out of action for the longest time in his career. It is something he is not used to doing, but as proven with his most recent tweet, he is still staying supportive of his team through his injury setback.
