Cleveland Cavs Willing To Trade Tristan Thompson

"The game will let you know when it's over with", James said before the Raptors' game in Toronto on Thursday, per Cleveland.com. They continued to chip away a bit at Cleveland's lead and managed to cut the deficit to 58-44 at the end of the second quarter.

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.

The problems at Cleveland continued last night when the team lost their third game in succession against the Indiana Pacers. The Cavs have not beaten the Pacers in two meetings this season.

However, Bautista Agut romped through the first set in 31 minutes as he broke the Argentine three times and produced numerous forehand winners.

The Cavaliers signed Thompson to a five-year, $82 million extension in advance of the 2015-16 season, and he churned out big efforts as a rebounder, rim protector and pick-and-roll partner night after night en route to the franchise's title triumph over the Golden State Warriors. The Cavaliers wouldn't score a single point in the last 3:57. Nikola Jokic added 14 points and nine rebounds for Denver, which played without guard Gary Harris, who was excused for personal reasons. Cleveland never led, and, thanks in large part to a 35-point third quarter, the Raptors took a commanding 25 point lead into half. He finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds, and four assists, but his energy and impact could not be measured by sheer numbers.

Whatever the reason, the Cavs were inconsistently consistent.

LeBron James did not sound too anxious about the Cavs' struggles recently, but he also said that the team got to find a way out.

Before the Cavs played in Toronto, we made the point that a return to The Q could do wonders for the slump they've been in for four weeks. Even the Raptors' reserves were taking it to the Cavs as Fred VanVleet scored a team-high 22 points in 24 minutes.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points and the Warriors used a 13-4 run in the fourth quarter to down the Bucks 108-94. He, of course, was talking about the incident where Giannis Antetokounmpo stepped out of bounds before hammering home a game-winner over Russell Westbrook.

Thomas, who will sit out at IN because he has not been cleared to play both nights of a back-to-back, finished with four points, two rebounds and three assists, hitting 2-of-15 field goals and 0-for-6 from long range. Cleveland simply can't defend, as Tyronn Lue's team owns the second-worst defensive rating in the league (109.5) ahead of only the lowly Kings (109.9).

The money will support TheDream.Us, a nonprofit working to help undocumented immigrants attend and graduate college. They also get no state aid in 44 states and and must pay out-of-state or global tuition in more than 15 states.

"They're still a good team, they still play hard, the young guys play hard", Lue said in pregame. "So, just trying to hold everybody accountable and move on, which we did".
