Cavs players have grumbled that LeBron James is slowing ball movement


"I told myself tonight I was going to get into him, play him hard, make him make tough baskets".

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to spiral. After LeBron converted on a pull-up jumper from mid-range at the 3:57 mark of the fourth quarter, Cleveland didn't score for the remainder of the game. In addition to that, he said that he doesn't feel like a 33-year-old who's now halfway through his 15th season in the league.

While the Cavaliers quickly took back the lead, this certainly was a sign that the tide was turning in the game.

Frustration is building in Cleveland, and some of it reportedly has to do with LeBron James and his playing style.

The Good: The Pacers once again shrugged off a massive deficit on their way to a win.

Pakistan take on Afghanistan in U19 World Cup opener
Sharp fielding and accurate bowling from India restricted Pakistan to 282 for 8 wickets in the stipulated 40 overs. The match was played at the Ujman Oval and the hosts were defeated by 7 wickets at the hands of the Indians.

LeBron James was not a happy camper after losing back-to-back games by more than 25 points for the first time in his career. Their offense was fantastic as they shot 54.2% from the field and 71.4% on 3-pointers while turning the ball over only twice. "Credit to my teammates for a great overall team win".

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 23 points to lead the Bucks. If James hadn't stepped out on the baseline drive, we might not be talking about a win.

On Friday night, they blew a 22-point lead to lose 97-95 to the Indiana Pacers on the road - which was their third straight defeat. Wall added nine assists while Beal added seven.

Darren Collison didn't waste his opportunities.

LeBron James finished with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds, while Kevin Love added 21 points and 10 boards for the Cavaliers. Somehow you can lead the team in points and have a quiet night of sorts, but that's how Collison's season has been. "It's not you're guarding [Victor] Oladipo or I'm guarding Oladipo, we're all guarding Oladipo". Howard finished with eight points on 2-of-9 shooting. But we expect more for Oladipo.

I think fair play to her TBH, it's her body and if you have the money to change what you want to make yourself happy then do it. I mean, we all remember how brutal some people were to Kim K when she was pregnant, just for putting on a bit of weight.

Typical Thad Young night: 12 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals. It was interesting because IN had a poor period regarding scoring efficiency, but their production from the free throw line played a key role IN being the difference.

Karl-Anthony Towns fell one assist shy of his second career triple-double, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds as the Timberwolves dumped the Knicks 118-108. Sabonis is showing that he is good enough to start, but he still has plenty to work on as well.

"We've just got to continue to keep building on it".

Still a rookie, and looked like one. When excluding this game, IN was shooting an average of 7.2-of-21.4 (33.6%) on 3-pointers IN January. Don't sleep on Big Al. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. EST with TNT having live broadcast coverage.
