Cavs seek first win of season over Pacers

That will likely be the largest media narrative coming out of Thursday night's huge Raptors win too, that the Cavs just didn't play interested enough and didn't have the intensity to win that game. After the first quarter, the Cavaliers scored only 64 points and shot just 24-of-64 (37.5%) from the field, 5-of-27 (18.5%) on 3-pointers, and 8-of-13 (61.5) on free throws while turning the ball over 11 times.

The Cavaliers, who at one point threatened to dislodge the Boston Celtics atop the Eastern Conference standings, have dropped 7 of their last 10 games. Led by seven players finishing in double figures, the home team controlled the pace for nearly the entire game, providing their starters an early finish to their night in the fourth quarter.

Last year's Cavs squad finished the season 22nd in defensive rating and generally proved that they could flip the proverbial switch in the postseason when they all cared.

They face National Basketball Association (NBA) champions the Golden State Warriors tomorrow after blowing a 22-point lead against the Indiana Pacers.

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. Toronto forward Serge Ibaka will return from a one-game suspension, the result of an altercation against the Heat.

Those circumstances didn't seem to faze the Raptors, who have won six of their last seven despite playing their third game in four nights. Yet, the grumbling only makes the Cavs more likely to lose more.

One of the downfalls of Cleveland during that quarter was their 32 percent shooting from the field, while their defense allowed IN to hit for five 3-pointers. Kevin Love added 21 points and 10 rebounds for Cleveland, which has lost three in a row.

Afghanistan and Ireland, the two countries that earned Test status a year ago , have entered 13 and 2 players respectively. Dwayne Bravo , Carlos Brathwaite, Evin Lewis and Jason Holder will add the Caribbean flavor to the league.

Paul Merson states his prediction for Tottenham v Everton
Spurs saw the better of the ball in the opening period and could have taken the lead in the 15th minute. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "I would like to congratulate Harry".

Dark Souls: Remastered announced
From Software's involvement in the Switch's library has been hinted at since the early days of the Switch's announcement . Despite the fact that is being ported to Nintendo, Dark Souls Remastered will be available for all other platforms.

A 2-time first-team All-NBA defender, the 6-foot-11 Jordan could provide a massive defensive upgrade to a Cavs team that now ranks second-to-last in the league in defensive efficiency. They are 1-6 in those seven. "This is four years since I've been back and this is just us".

Well, the team is on a losing streak right now, and all it takes to melt the ice, if there really is any between team members and LeBron, is a winning game.

The most valuable player reference was suitable for VanVleet, who led an impressive Raptors bench brigade, scoring a career-high 22 points as Toronto went on to humble LeBron James and the Cavaliers 133-99 at Air Canada Centre on Thursday. He ended the night with 16 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, and a steal and a block.

At Minnesota, the game was virtually over when the Timberwolves jumped out to a 20-4 lead on the Cavs. As a result, IN faced a 24-6 deficit with 4:48 remaining IN the first quarter.

Isaiah Thomas did not help James' fury as the recovering point guard (hip) knocked down just two of 15 shots. "We got stops, we were able to get out in transition and then the threes started falling somewhere in the second quarter".

Nemanja Bjelica ignited a fourth-quarter burst with a 3-pointer as Minnesota broke open a tight game en route to a victory over NY in Minneapolis.

"I'm sure the next time we play them, they are going to remember this game".
