Pacers Complete Comeback As Cavaliers Continue To Flounder

LeBron James and the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers absorbed their most-lopsided loss of the season when they were routed by the Toronto Raptors 133-99 on Thursday night.

Whatever the description, the Cavs played so poorly against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night at Air Canada Centre that James took over a huddle in the first half, gesturing emphatically to an assistant coach as his teammates watched.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Golden State Warriors are coming to Cleveland Monday, and their visit couldn't come at a worse time for the Cavaliers. James had two chances to win the game at the death, but missed both of his three-pointer efforts.

Casey said that he does not want any player on his team to back down from any opponent when testosterone levels start to rise during a game.

Locked in a tight game early in the fourth quarter, Denver used a 12-2 run to break it open and went on to beat visiting Memphis. His 3.2 long-range attempts per game this season are a career-high, but a low number compared to other star shooting guards like James Harden (10.6 threes per game), Klay Thompson (7.5) and Bradley Beal (6.5).

The Warriors have already lost more regular-season games at home (six) than they did in all of last season (five), but also are the only team that hasn't so much as lost two in a row this season.

For all of the justifiable concerns about the Cavs, they are still 26-15, third in the East, with an overall +45 point differential.

It is easy to understand why James was livid as the Cavs lost for the seventh time in their last 10 games. At this point, three and a half, four years in this thing, I hope not.

He added that Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society". The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

By contrast, the Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.7 points per game) and three-point shooting (39 per cent).

The Cavs rank 29th in defensive rating, giving up 109.5 points per 100 possessions, better only than the 13-28 Sacramento Kings.

He even fell victim, once again, to the irritations of Lance Stephenson.

"We haven't been able to stop (teams) as of late", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue told ESPN after the Minnesota loss. "They're a tough team but we came out and played smart defense and made the right plays". It's got to start with us, everybody getting back to what we were doing.
