Toronto Raptors 133, Cleveland Cavaliers 99

Kevin Love Tristan Thompson

In fact, they don't speak at all. Are they accusing him of being a stat hungry player?

Toronto looked quicker, stronger and readier to put in the effort needed to win National Basketball Association games than the veteran Cavaliers.

While the center isn't being wasted away in Los Angeles, the team is only a fringe playoff contender. They improved to 3-0 on the season against Cleveland. Toronto's 133 points were the most by any Cleveland opponent this season, and marked the third straight game that Cleveland has allowed at least 127. They responded well, though.

In the meantime, the Cavaliers can't just wait for the turnaround to happen, because it has happened so many times before.

The Cavaliers (26-15) will play the second of back-to-back games Friday night at IN (21-20). DeRozan finished the night with 13 points and eight assists in 29 minutes. It's going to start with us and just everybody getting back to what we were doing when we were playing good ball. "I think it sends that message to everyone in the locker room".

The Pacers return to action on Sunday night, when they visit the Phoenix Suns to open their Western Conference road trip. IN covered as a 3-point underdog and the game finished with a total of 208 points, which was 13 points below the projected point total of 221 points. After making his first three shots in the fourth, he missed his final four and made a costly turnover. "I don't feel 33", he said. Lue didn't offer any clarity, either, saying in an equally vague response he meant "just what I said". LeBron, * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/advanced/?sort=OFF_RATING&dir=-1&CF=MIN*GE*15&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&DateFrom=12%2F18%2F2017&DateTo=01%2F12%2F2018&TeamID=1610612739" *who has had the highest player impact estimate on the team in the last 10 games, appeared to be looking for that someone on the sideline to start fighting for wins. Just a few days after losing by 28 points to the Timberwolves-and causing LeBron to get a little bit testy with reporters-Cleveland lost by 34 to the Raptors in Toronto, even though the Raptors were without the services of both Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka.

These two have a long history - from Lance's immature choking sign while on the bench during the postseason to that famous gif that remains popular today of Lance blowing in LeBron's ear. He covered LeBron at times and didn't let him go off. Stephenson covered him in 4th, but with a player like LeBron and the Pacers not having any shutdown defenders, it takes a team effort. James didn't like and had to be separated. James was great as usual and the ball movement was flowing. After a review, James was given his fourth technical foul of the season, and he amped it up another level.
