A team built to bomb 3-pointers and demoralize opponents on that end, Cleveland has been able to outshoot the mistakes. He just turned and threw the ball without looking, so I knew I had an opportunity to get the steal.
"Lance is just a little dirty", LeBron said after Cleveland's 3rd straight loss. "It's on me to go out there, to understand how teams are going to play me, for me to understand how I can make my teammates excel at the highest level".
The Pacers have now won six games this season when trailing by at least 10 points. "We need Serge", the coach said. "They good." It's true, the Raptors finally got a game on national USA television and they put on quite a performance.

Cleveland got off to a strong start and led 34-12 after the first quarter, and LeBron James looked like he was on a mission to squash a Pacers team with less talent. What didn't show up in the box score was how he got into the head of LeBron James.
He said he wants to be with his kids when they achieve their milestones in life. "That's all. He's a little dirty". I don't know where it kind of went wrong or what happened to switch back, but we've got try to pick it back up and find it."It's only logical to give the Cavs the benefit of the doubt - even though this isn't the same team from past years". I should've known. I've known since school, it's not the guy who tells the joke who gets caught, it's the guy who laughs.
When asked about it afterward, the players were confused, with each saying they didn't have one.
Timberwolves 118, Knicks 108: Karl-Anthony Towns fell one assist shy of his second career triple-double, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in Minnesota's victory over visiting NY.
But if someone only watched the way the Cavs played Thursday, it would question how in the world anyone thinks they can get back to the NBA Finals. Cleveland's defense definitely looked exposed in this game, often giving up line drives to the basket from Delon Wright and Norman Van Vleet, among others, but they took away DeMar DeRozan quite successfully for most of the game.
He hasn't sparked the team out it's funk, as James called it.
Following the hard-fought 97-95 loss against the Indiana Pacers Friday night, where they blew an early 22-point lead, the Cavs have now lost eight of their last 11 games.
My ask of the media here is to look past the simple narratives, the easy headlines that nearly write themselves about another bad, lazy Cleveland loss where they didn't put forth the effort, or about the regular season Raptors who disappear in April. They dropped in 32 points while holding the Cavaliers to just 16, giving them the 76-74 lead going into the fourth. The Pacers hit 14 of 20 shots to help them outscore the Cavs 32-24 in the second quarter and narrow the halftime deficit to 58-44.
