LeBron James to sit out regular season finale vs. Raptors

The Raptors are the third seed and host the Milwaukee Bucks at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. They have Indiana's number, which makes them favorites to move on to the Eastern Conference semifinals. "I would never say they're vulnerable". We just figured having a guy like Dahntay, who came into the NBA Finals - he didn't play the whole playoffs - and give us the lift he gave us, was big for us. The difference is we've got some new pieces that we've been trying to integrate all year on and off.

LeBron James and Paul George are about to face off again in the National Basketball Association playoffs. The Raptors rested DeMar DeRozan and Serge Ibaka. The Cavs have downplayed the importance of the top seed in recent weeks, but they are just 20-21 on the road this season.

But the Cavaliers are limping into the playoffs, going 10-14 since March 1 to lose control of the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers will have momentum on their side at the start of the series.

"We have a good chance to win it all", James said Thursday. That's on me, but I'm pretty sure that a lot of guys in that locker room feel the same way. The four-time MVP then set aside all the negatives Cleveland dealt with in the regular season. For what it's worth, the team has not played well as of late, producing a measly 12-15 record since the All-Star break.

Tavares was originally drafted by the Hawks as the 43rd overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and saw action in 11 games in 2015-16 with averages of 2.3 points and 1.9 rebounds in 6.6 minutes.

Though the Pacers lost a thrilling double-overtime game against the Cavaliers on April second, Paul George and company finished the season on a five-game winning streak.

'Infowars' host Jones says his on-air persona not a 'trick'
The host acknowledged in an affidavit that he continued sleeping with the other woman, who remains a friend, until March 2016. Jones said he sometimes smokes marijuana - almost yearly - "to monitor its strength, which is how law enforcement does it".

A defensive stopper with playoff experience, Jones was released at the end of training camp in October and hasn't played this season.

Iman Shumpert was the Cavs' leading scorer with 11 points.

With center Tristan Thompson missing the past four games with a sprained right thumb going into Wednesday's regular season finale at home against the Raptors, the Cavs apparently decided they needed more immediate help for the post-season than Sanders could provide.

Robin Lopez scored 18 points and Jimmy Butler and Jerian Grant had 17 apiece to pace the Bulls. "For now, it was really good". "But when things don't go your way and adversity hits, how can you get back to the point that nobody thinks you can get back to?" Kevin Love added 25 with 10 rebounds before he fouled out with 34 seconds left in overtime.

Neither team enters the playoffs on a roll. In four games for the Cavaliers' D-League affiliate in Canton, Sanders averaged four points, eight rebounds and 2.5 blocks. Jones, cut by the Cavs in training camp, scored nine points, all in the fourth quarter. He was injured Monday against the Miami Heat.
