39:54 - No, this ain't the second half score. It's the total number of minutes LeBron James played against the Hornets.
James had to work long and hard to get the win against the stingy Hornets who is still jockeying for position for the Eastern Conference Playoffs spot.
Cleveland was on target with 55.4 FG%. LeBron, while the best player of the game turned the ball over twice in the dying minutes. Nonetheless, he still had a great game flirting with a triple double stat line.
Kemba Walker was the highest scorer for the Hornets but it was Marco Belinelli who actually kept them at bay, scoring critical points after another. He ended up with a season high of 22 points.
