Lance Rattles LeBron, Pacers Register Another Win Over Cavs

LeBron James

LeBron James

Through half a season and counting, the Raptors have had a chance to win in nearly all them, and more often than not have done just that. James scored 26 points in this loss while Isaiah Thomas missed his first 11 shots.

LeBron is one of the greatest players and passers of all-time, so putting the ball in his hands more is rarely a problem, but if players are unhappy about him having the ball so often and they're still losing then the issue needs to be sorted out.

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. A chase-down block or two sure couldn't hurt the Cavs right now. "But we didn't exert enough in the third quarter and they got back in the game".

Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie came up one rebound short of a triple-double with 20 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in Brooklyn's 110-105 win over the Hawks.

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. But then a 16-2 run by the Pacers gave IN the lead heading into the final period.

In Sacramento, Tyrone Wallace intercepted a pass at midcourt and drove in for a dunk with 10.9 seconds left, moments after what looked like a costly turnover by Lou Williams, and the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Sacramento Kings 121-115 after blowing a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter.

"The only thing is with my kids getting older, that's the only thing that kinds of stops me from going as long as I'd like to", he told USA Today. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.


"We've got to be better", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. The Pacers rank 25th in the National Basketball Association with a free throw attempt (FTA) rate of 0.178, while Cleveland ranks first in FTA rate allowed (0.160).

Victor Oladipo scored 19 points in the win over Cleveland Friday night. Golden State got 26 points from Kevin Durant in winning its 11th straight on the road to go 18-3 away from home overall. Love chipped in with 21 points and hauled down 10 boards, with Jeff Green the only other Cavs player to score in double figures with 13 points off the bench. So we've gotta give it up when one makes a tough, crucial, deciding call against the NBA's biggest star in a game his team wants badly.

"Lance is just a little dirty that's all", James said.

Asked if James said anything to him, Stephenson said, "Nah". "I should have known. So they caught me on the retaliation, so - but he played well tonight". "He played well, though".

In their last five games, Cleveland is 1-4 ATS with 3 overs and 2 unders. The win is Indiana's third over Cleveland this season and improves their record to 22-20.

"It feels good, but at the end of the day it's about matchups", Thompson said. Miami's 0.611 effective field goal percentage was their largest strength over IN, who had a mark of 0.506.
