Weather's silver lining: See LeBron James play tonight for $16

LeBron James

The loss to the Raptors was the Cavaliers' third straight game in which they gave up more than 127 points to their opponent.

It was the second of a tough three-game stretch for the Raptors where they played the Southeast Division-leading Heat, the Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers, and then the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors on Saturday. They led Game Three of their First-Round series against the Cavs by 26-points. DeRozan said on Friday it's a game Toronto could have won, pointing out that they had a lead with less than two minutes remaining, and said the Raptors have grown within their new system since.

Curry injured the ankle during the shootaround Wednesday and missed the loss that night to the Los Angeles Clippers and also did not play in the 108-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

It started out looking like the kind of game the Cavaliers have been in dire need of in recent weeks.

Slim margin, but it looks like they got the call right. "The Cleveland game is important because it's a conference game, a team we're going to be in a fight with, but it won't make or break our season".

Oladipo made the free throw to extend Indiana's lead to 84-82. By the end of the half, it was down to 14-points, 58-44.

While murky in its meaning, Lue's "agenda" comment may light a fire under some Cavs' players. But then a 16-2 run by the Pacers gave IN the lead heading into the final period. At his best, the former top five pick is a terror on the glass and a quality defensive player with the ability to switch.


The Pacers came back to defeat LeBron James and the Cavaliers behind a spark from Bankers Life Fieldhouse's own court jester, Lance Stephenson, and yet another big shot from Victor Oladipo.

"We just needed to settle down and focus", Nate McMillan said. When guys are struggling, we have to get guys easy shots or open shots and continue to encourage those guys. They jumped out to a quick 6-4 lead at the 9:46 mark but the Cavaliers scored 22 unanswered points from that point.

He baited LeBron James into a late technical foul.

Rookie Jayson Tatum helped turn the tide, scoring 11 of his 16 points in the decisive third period. It was about toughness; the next guy stepping up, doing a little bit more and besting whatever version of the Cavaliers came their way. 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. "So, I don't know".

"I would love to join the team for maybe two or three months, or maybe half a season at least", Gortat told the Orlando Sentinel after the Wizards completed their shootaround Friday at Capital One Arena.
