CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James knows about the narrative bouncing around the NBA that Cleveland can be dethroned in the East.

He's ignoring it, and slowly changing it.

"You know I could care less what people say," James said. "I'm so far beyond that. I don't care what people say."

Grizzlies PG Conley out indefinitely

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley is out indefinitely with a sore left heel and Achilles tendon, leaving Mario Chalmers to start in his place at least for now.

Heat hold off Wizards after being up 25

WASHINGTON (AP) For all the good Erik Spoelstra saw from his Miami Heat at the defensive end - building a 25-point edge, holding the Washington Wizards to 29 for a half, shutting out a hobbling John Wall until there were 5 1/2 minutes left in the game - they still barely held on for a victory.

"It was pretty harrowing," the coach said.


Kings bounce back to beat Blazers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Willie Cauley-Stein was very comfortable coming off the bench for the first time this season. Sacramento's 7-foot center was just as happy playing out of position, too.

Maybe coach Dave Joerger is onto something.
