“There’s such a long road ahead of us, I’m not going to get too ahead of myself personally,” said James, who scored 34 points including a personal 8-0 run early in the fourth to keep the Thunder at a distance. “We’ve played some great basketball as of late.”

“That’s a pretty good rule,” Manning said on the eve of a season that was filled with fun (planning his own prank after breaking Brett Favre’s touchdown record) and frustration (another first-round flop in the playoffs after a nagging thigh injury).

“I think he thought the time was running out and he shot a fadeaway,” Washington’s John Wall said. “I was like, ‘Thank you.’ I thought it was still going to go in because he was making just about everything he put up tonight.”

FILE - In this Dec. 22, 2014 file photo, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, left, attends a pretrial hearing in Fall River, Mass. Hernandez is accused of murdering semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.  A jury is expected to be seated for opening arguments in his murder trial as early as Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015. Judge Susan Garsh had cleared 53 potential jurors after individually questioning them to weed out people who are biased, have a hardship or have a valid reason to be excused. Lawyers from both sides will have the chance to eliminate 18 people each from the final pool on Monday for any reason. Eighteen jurors will be seated. (AP Photo/Brian Snyder, Pool, File)

Hernandez was arrested days after Lloyd’s bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park near his North Attleborough mansion. He has pleaded not guilty and, after more than two weeks of jury selection, his trial is expected to kick off in earnest this week with opening statements.
