4 players the Cleveland Cavaliers should target

LeBron James

LeBron James

Before the game Casey encouraged his team, especially the bench, to focus on three-point shots, to make them "with conviction".

Despite LeBron James finishing with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds, the Cavaliers still lost for the third time in-a-row. Even at five turnovers a game, his 26 points, 12.5 rebounds, five assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game while shooting 48/36/75 is awesome.

"We're adjusting a little bit better offensively to be effective and efficient every night", he said.

"Completely different, completely different dynamic of the game", said DeRozan on Friday when comparing the Cavaliers and Warriors. For a moment, all looked right in the world for the Cavs.

Cleveland showed its unseemly side again, losing for the seventh time in its past 10 games - looking more like the team that started the season 5-7 through its first 12 games than the squad that reeled off 18 wins in 19 games to follow that.

Oladipo made the free throw to extend Indiana's lead to 84-82.

IN scored a season-low 12 points in the first.

Lue played Thompson down the stretch in the fourth quarter, not only for his defense but for pick-and-rolls on offense.

Durant's mid-range jumper gave Golden State a 96-90 lead before he hit an open 3 with 2:15 left to cap the run with a three-possession lead.

The 133 points against Cleveland was the highest total scored by the Raptors in a non-overtime game in franchise history. At his best, the former top five pick is a terror on the glass and a quality defensive player with the ability to switch.

Outside of getting snippy with reporters the other night, LeBron also shared a tense moment with Cavaliers player development coach Phil Handy during the first quarter of the game on Thursday. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.

"I should have known, I've known since school, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught, it's the guy who laughs", James said.

Plus, he added, "I've got too many sneakers to sell still".

The Pacers won the first two meetings, 124-107, on November 1 in Cleveland and 106-102 at in on December 8.

The Pacers overcame a 22-point deficit in their 97-95 victory over Cleveland, handing the Cavaliers their third straight loss.

Don't criticize LeBron James for caring. But Jordan, who's averaging 11.8 points and 14.9 rebounds per game, actually might be an improvement over him. Lance continued to pester LeBron throughout the night until he just finally had enough.

"Praying", Collison said of what he was thinking while guarding James.
