Cavs willing to deal Tristan Thompson; DeAndre Jordan in play?

"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. That's true and Cleveland likely won't consider Toronto a real threat until they provide a post-season scare.

Following the Cavaliers' 34-point defeat against the Raptors on Thursday, their second consecutive blowout loss and sixth failure in their last eight outings, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported Cleveland would be willing to move Thompson if the right deal presents itself.

Cleveland has lost two primetime games in a row. So what are the Raptors keys to the game ahead of this marquee matchup? The Warriors, too, are coming off their third-straight Finals, and though their roster is much better constructed to play defense, they still rank third in defensive rating, giving up 102.5 points per 100 possessions. Sure, Cleveland's defence has been horrendous for most of this season and is now almost at a league-worst level, but the most points by any Raptors team ever in a regulation game? "Until we play better defensively and offensively, until we share the basketball". Their lack of home games through 39 games will aid Toronto later on in the season, as they will have the comfort of having several extended home stands. Jeff Green and Jae Crowder were the second- and third-leading scorers with 13 and 11 each, and Kevin Love, Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade were virtually non-existent. The Lakers did come back for a 93-81 win.

Lowry was out with a bruised tailbone. He missed Tuesday's loss to the Miami Heat, and he is listed as doubtful for tonight's game against Cleveland.

Thirty-nine stores called by CNNMoney had recorded messages saying the store was closed Thursday but would reopen Friday. Sam's Club says their customers will be refunded their 45 dollar annual membership fee.

Fred VanVleet came off the bench with 22 points, including 6 of 8 from three-point range, as Toronto dropped Cleveland 133-99 on Thursday night. That is if Lowry is indeed unable to play. "You have to play for each other on both ends of the floor".

Before the game Casey encouraged his team, especially the bench, to focus on three-point shots, to make them "with conviction". So, look for Pascal Siakam to step in and take Ibaka's place.

Whether James is really going to play somewhere else next season or not doesn't matter right. now. "There's a lot of factors that go into it, moreso than just looking at numbers". That's usually a combination that equates to postseason success.In terms of point differential, the Cavs are 11th while Toronto ranks second, trailing the Golden State Warriors.Despite the Cavs' awful stretch, ranking as the league's worst defense in the three games since Isaiah Thomas - who was supposed to lift the team to new heights - in the starting lineup, the Cavs don't seem too concerned. We do know he's capable, as he scored 52 points earlier this season. If there are agendas, I don't see it.
