  • LeBron James, Cavs routed again as Raptors romp 133-99

After the Boston Celtics beat the Phildelphia 76ers in the NBA London game, Kyrie Irving liked a viral video of LeBron James lighting up his Cleveland Cavaliers team during a huddle. On Thursday, they fell 133-99 to the Toronto Raptors and were simply outclassed and outmatched in every way. It was lethal against a Cleveland team that prefers to set up plays in the halfcourt.

James had one assist - yes, one - on Thursday, to go with his game-high 26 points. The Blue & Gold scored a season-low 12 points in the opening frame - going just 6-for-22 from the field and committing six turnovers - and faced a 22-point deficit heading into the second quarter. However, James has contributed in a variety of ways besides scoring. However, James is aware of the mortality of an National Basketball Association career.

After the game, James apparently was not interested in diagnosing the Cavs' problems.

Indeed, the Cavaliers seem to be falling apart.

Toronto's success is due to its extremely talented backcourt.

While his usage is down by over four percent from past year, DeMar DeRozan is having his most efficient season for the Raptors, with a true shooting percentage of 58.0% and an offensive rating of 112.8. James is now 4th in the league in assists per game and 3rd in assist percentage. Oladipo added 19 points and Lance Stephenson added 16 points and 11 rebounds off the bench.

Unfortunately for them, their next game trumped that one.

As for my prediction, I have to side with the Cavaliers. Two struggling clubs, I'll take the Cavs, but that doesn't change how I feel about this subpar team.

However, Wojnarowski said the Cavaliers are willing to part ways with the Nets' pick if they can acquire a "big-time difference-maker" who can help them return to the finals this year.

Casey's reliance on the bench was necessary with former all-stars Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka missing the game.

But back-to-back defensive brain cramps in which the Cavs gave up 1277 points in consecutive games and then that stinker last night in Toronto makes it very plain the issue in Cleveland is not working one new starter into the mix.
