Cavs seek first win of season over Pacers

In a cryptic remark after the Cavaliers were blown out 133-99 in Toronto on Thursday, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue blamed players' "agendas" for the slump in which the team is now mired. Gortat always has credited former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy and former Magic lead assistant coach Brendan Malone for developing him into a quality player. Somehow, the Warriors find ways to care that the Cavs have not. They were a bit better following a December 8 victory over Cleveland, beating Denver in overtime before losing the next two. James posted 39 points in Cleveland's loss to the Bucks on December 19 and 14 assists in the Cavs' loss to the Kings on December 27. That's true and Cleveland likely won't consider Toronto a real threat until they provide a post-season scare. The Timberwolves shot 56.7 percent (38 of 67) over the final three quarters to come from behind and win their fourth straight game and 11th of 14 overall. "This is just us".

"We're in a funk". Powell and VanVleet put up eight points each, with Siakam reaching double digits; the crowd, growing more excited with every dunk and rebound, gave Poeltl and Brown a rousing sendoff when they subbed out with five minutes left in the quarter.

"It doesn't bother me at all", Thompson said.

With one of the league's worst defense, the Cavaliers are a shell of the team which got blown out in last year's NBA Finals. "That changes the whole dynamic".

Final score- IN 97 Cleveland 95.

Toronto only added another three-pointer in the fourth quarter, but with the game well out of hand most of the period was played by both team's least-used bench players. Although they have yet to master it like Golden State, Toronto's 29-11 record is a franchise best at the 40-game mark of a season.

The Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors meet Saturday in National Basketball Association action at the Air Canada Centre. LeBron says the Cavs are 'fragile' right now.

Haiti wants clarification on Trump's comments, says ambassador
Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton , compared Mr Trump's comments to Nazism. The White House has not denied the language, nor have the several Republican lawmakers in the meeting.

"We've been learning it, appreciating it, understanding it, since Day 1 of training camp", said DeRozan on the court of the Biosteel Centre, the Raptors' practice facility.

"They're two good tests for us, two good games".

According to Casey, having success with the new system helps but isn't everything.

"Lance plays much bigger (than 6-6)", said McMillan. "There's a lot of factors that go into it, moreso than just looking at numbers".

Lowry was out with a bruised tailbone. On the road, all of Stephenson's averages drop - 7.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 43.1% from the field, and 21.9% from three-point range.

Ibaka sat as he served a one-game suspension after throwing punches with Miami's James Johnson on Tuesday.
