Kevin Durant, Warriors Snap LeBron James, Cavaliers' 13-Game Home Winning Streak

Press Release Lou Williams Named Western Conference Player of the Week

Press Release Lou Williams Named Western Conference Player of the Week

It took three of the greatest plays in Cleveland sports history in rapid succession in 2016 for the Cavs to defeat the record-setting 73-and-9 Warriors in the seventh game of the NBA Finals. The Warriors have won six of their last seven matchups against the Cavaliers dating back to the Martin Luther King Jr. That deficit against a team of Golden State's caliber proved to be impossible to overcome. "We're there - we're trying to get there - but we just need to be a little bit earlier".

Cleveland must consider it all because this game made it clear again there is now a gap between the two teams that met in the NBA Finals the past three years. For all of the beef still surrounding the Kyrie Irving portion of the summer's megatrade-an in-depth piece from ESPN published before Wednesday's game on the relationship between Irving and LeBron James will likely keep the issues between them smouldering in the media at least for many months to come-Thomas and Boston have never had a problem with each other. The streak began with a rout in Minneapolis at the hands of the Timberwolves.

"I should have known, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught it's the guy who laughs", James said.

In 2017, he claimed that the Cavs didn't "respect the game" after allowing an undermanned Indiana Pacers team to compete with them in a first-round playoff series.

Isaiah Thomas and LeBron James connected for some multiple alley oops and Thomas had one of his best games since returning with 19 points, but was just 8-of-21 from the field and 1-of-7 from the line.

"It feels good, but it's a long season", a more subdued Stephenson said in the locker room. "It was pretty cool for me to get a dunk in that situation". He is back now and I believe Golden State will ease to a victory in what should be a high-scoring and entertaining affair. "I've got to work my way back and get my legs back and get my legs back to playing at a high level".

Some of that can be fixed by effort. But as they did on Christmas Day in Oakland, the Warriors completely bogged down Cleveland's improved bench - holding the second unit to a combined 25 points on 11-for-31 shooting. Smith looks nothing like the dynamic scorer he once was, and is also shooting below 40 percent.

It's clear by now that Tristan Thompson is the likeliest person to be moved if the Cleveland Cavaliers decide to pull the trigger on a trade in the coming weeks.

Not that they see things that way. We're not the team we'd like to be when the postseason starts.

"It's hard to get into his head, but tonight was [different]", Stephenson said.

How they'll get there is an open question. But Monday night, they had a chance to make a statement. "Everybody knows that. And we can all speculate all the way through the season all we want to".

DeAndre Jordan is obviously on the table, but would that even be enough?

Although the Eastern Conference is considered to be weaker than the West, the 34-10 Boston Celtics and 29-13 Toronto Raptors seem to be legitimate contenders at this point in the season. It may not be the Cavs, but one of their chief rivals that makes a significant addition at the deadline. Those floundering role players may step up and provide a lift.

But, April is still far enough way that I'm not really anxious about the Cavs until they're out of the playoffs and LeBron leaves. "We've played them in The Finals three straight years, and I guarantee there was a (struggling) moment like this (for the Cavs) in all three years".
