Lance Stephenson successfully annoyed LeBron James in Pacers' win over Cavs

Raptors forward OG Anunoby takes an easy shot over Cavaliers star Le Bron James last night

The Toronto Raptors have quickly put their romp over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday behind them as they prepare to play the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

The Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors meet Saturday in National Basketball Association action at the Air Canada Centre. The Raptors, looks like the best Raptors team of this era, with DeMar DeRozan playing at an all-star level.

Stephenson didn't do any ear blowing in Friday night's game, but he did poke James' hip with his thumb in a odd manner during the fourth quarter.

JJ Redick had 22 points and hit five 3-pointers for Philadelphia, but the 76ers were unable to take advantage of their fast start as the Celtics' NBA-best defense tightened at O2 Arena.

The Cavs have fared excellently with Frye on the court (+11.1 per 100 possessions).

Elfrid Payton finished with 27 points and Jonathon Simmons added 23 for the Magic, who have lost seven games in a row and 27 of 31 since November 10. Fifteen years. I don't know, I've been in this spotlight for half of my years.

TIMBERWOLVES 118, KNICKS 108: Karl-Anthony Towns fell one assist shy of his second career triple-double, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds for Minnesota at Minneapolis. Nope. He had four points in 25 minutes on Thursday night. Forward Serge Ibaka will return for Toronto after serving a one-game suspension for fighting Miami's James Johnson.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points and the Warriors used a 13-4 run in the fourth quarter to down the Bucks 108-94. Love chipped in with 21 points and hauled down 10 boards, with Jeff Green the only other Cavs player to score in double figures with 13 points off the bench.

The Pacers also won't have Myles Turner for a few games with an elbow injury; the Cavs tonight played without Isaiah Thomas, and Cleveland was also reeling, having lost seven out of nine games. In the first quarter he was 0-for-6, making him 2-for-18 in that period in his four games, including 0-for-8 on 3-pointers. According to ESPN.com, the Raptors win probability never dropped below 99% in the second half and both team's starting units were pulled by the fourth quarter. Jordan's talent would improve Cleveland's effectiveness near the rim, considering he's averaging 11.8 points, 14.9 rebounds and 1.0 block this season. "We didn't really push, didn't really attack", Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue said. The Warriors, who played without point guard Stephen Curry (ankle) for the second straight game, have won six of their past seven games overall. "Nevertheless, the superstar talent of Oklahoma City's Paul George or New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins, each deserving of that Nets first-rounder, won't see the light in this trade market as of right now, league sources said, as those teams are fully focused on winning with each respective player". Can't we just be happy the Pacers have two good centers?
