Cleveland Cavaliers can add floundering offense to growing list of problems

Cleveland Cavaliers can add floundering offense to growing list of problems

It was a statement victory - 133-99 - for the Raptors and another bad loss for the Cavaliers.

Lance Stephenson's 16 points and 11 rebounds, along with Darren Collison's 22 points, saw the Pacers register a third win in four and make it three-out-of-three against the Cavaliers.

But it wasn't until the backups assembled in the second quarter that the possibility of back-to-back blowout losses for the Cavaliers, who lost by 28 points to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, took shape. And on a larger scale of things, the Cavaliers (26-15) have suffered their most lopsided loss of the season. Without the Villanova alumnus, who is the team's second-best player, the Raptors will have to rely on Delon Wright and Fred Van Fleet to carry the load at point guard.

The reason he averages all these points, rebounds, and assists is that he could. LeBron James had his comments regarding what Lue implied about the team.

James and Irving, of course, share a storied history, dating back to their three seasons as teammates in Cleveland and Irving's bitter departure from the Cavs this past offseason.

"Coming out in the third, we were just walking around". "It's not for everybody".

In the meantime, the Cavaliers can't just wait for the turnaround to happen, because it has happened so many times before. "Family is not always about a bed of roses".

"We've all got to be accountable for actions, accountable for how we play, how hard we play, what we're doing for one another", James told reporters after the game. "That will be a deciding factor on how long I play but right now I feel great, so we'll see", James said.

EMT's managing director, Jake Kelly, thanked the emergency services for their "brave and professional response" to the fire. British Transport Police have now launched an investigation after confirming they are treating the fire as arson.

The Boston Celtics climbed off the mat at London's O2 Arena, rallying from a 22-point first-half deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-103.

"The way Golden State moves the ball, I mean, Cleveland moves the ball well but Golden State is different", said DeRozan. "I don't [have an agenda]". I don't know. I've been in this spotlight for half of my years, maybe more.

Aron Baynes started at centre for the Celtics but played just 15 minutes, finishing with six points and three rebound.

But the guy with a knack for getting inside opponents' heads with unthinkable stunts, like blowing in James' ear or giving him a thumb in the side - as television replays showed during the game - played the instigator perfectly.

"It's my 10th year", Love said.

"We've got to be better". But I'm sure whoever he's speaking of or speaking to with that, he'll address it, as we usually do.

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.
