National Basketball Association wrap: LeBron James rips own team as Raptors thrashes Cavs

14 January 2018, 03:55 | Henrietta Morgan

While everyone expects LeBron James and company to be (very) unsafe before the NBA Playoffs arrive, the team just dropped two straight games by 25-plus points and, outside of a wild winning streak, Cleveland's production has been quite pedestrian.

THE SLUMPING Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a crushing 133-99 defeat to the Toronto Raptors as LeBron James was left less than impressed. Somehow, the Warriors find ways to care that the Cavs have not.

Eight of the Cavaliers' 9 games the rest of January will be against teams that have an above-.500 winning percentage, and a total of 12 of 15 until the All-Star break. TIP-INS Clippers: Harrell's 16 points in the second quarter were two more than he had the entire game against Golden State. Victor Oladipo scored 19 including the huge three.

"Playing with a lot of speed, man", said VanVleet of the win over Cleveland. "Guys that weren't even on an National Basketball Association roster at the beginning of the season are coming up and making big plays like they've been in the league for years". "We're getting there. Defensively, we're executing the things we want to do, whether it's switching, handling pick-and-rolls and just being efficient".

After draining a 3-pointer, Lance Stephenson gets into LeBron James' face and the two exchange words. "That changes the whole dynamic".

Ingram, who scored 26 points against the Spurs on Thursday, left the game in the second quarter after tweaking his left ankle. The Lakers go on a three-game road trip, starting with the Dallas Mavericks on January 13 at 11:00 A.M.

Yet compare the Cavs to the Golden State Warriors, their biggest foes.

Early on, it seemed like Cleveland would walk all over the Pacers, getting a bit of revenge for their 0-2 start against IN to start the year.

The result: IN, which trailed 26-6 about eight minutes into the game and still trailed 72-60 with 5:23 left IN the third, rallied.

Toronto lost to Golden State 117-112 in Oakland, Calif., on October 25, just the fourth game of the season for the Raptors. The Boston Celtics lead the Raptors by three games for first place in the East, but Toronto trails Boston by just one game in the loss column.

IN is 12-11 ATS at home with 14 unders, 8 overs and 1 push. "That's the season. Just like we kept in mind what happened to us in the playoffs". "I'm going to do my part to show these guys it's not acceptable, and we'll go from there".

Kane hits brace as Tottenham put four goals past Everton
Harry Kane has equalled Steven Gerrard's record of six Premier League Player of the Month awards after winning December's prize. His first venomous drive came in the 22nd minute, but the attempt was parried away strongly by Jordan Pickford .

"But at the same time as a leader, we can't have lulls".

According to Casey, having success with the new system helps but isn't everything.

However, the fact is that the Cleveland Cavaliers started losing as soon as Tristan Thompson returned from injury and the more they struggle with him in the lineup, the worse his trade value becomes. "For us we just remember what we did wrong and how to correct it the next go-around".

Lowry is still a game-time decision for Saturday night after missing the past two games with a bruised tailbone.

"The guys did a great job, " said DeRozan, who scored 13 points with eight assists and three rebounds. Forward Serge Ibaka will return for Toronto after serving a one-game suspension for fighting Miami's James Johnson.
