Larry Sanders missed team bus before Cavs cut him

Larry Sanders missed team bus before Cavs cut him

The Pacers finished the regular season strong, winning 5 straight games but Cleveland struggled down the stretch, going 12 of 15.

On the last day of the regular season, the Cavaliers lost a game, released a player, added two others, rested LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, welcomed back Tristan Thompson and finished with the second seed in the Eastern Conference. The one thing for Cavs fans to worry about, I suppose, is if the Bulls snatch the seven seed and set themselves up for a first-round matchup with Cleveland.

The Raptors will play the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round, with Game 1 scheduled for Saturday at 5:30 pm ET at the Air Canada Centre. The Raptors have higher expectations this spring, and Lowry is eager to get started. "I would never say they're vulnerable". They're the champs. Every team out there has to beat them to become the champs.

However, it was anything but easy as the Cavs had to withstand a strong comeback by the Pacers, who could have stolen the opener but C.J. Miles missed a 14-foot jumper in the final second. The difference is we've got some new pieces that we've been trying to integrate all year on and off.

Unfortunately, history is not on Indiana's side in match-ups with LeBron James in the playoffs.

With the Celtics beating the Brooklyn Nets 114-105, the defeat dropped the Cavs one game behind Boston for first place in the conference. The Warriors who lost a 3-1 lead to the Cavs in the championship series past year, have since added Kevin Durant and who have the league's best record by far - having lost only 15 games for a.815 winning percentage? That's on me, but I'm pretty sure that a lot of guys in that locker room feel the same way.

On the season, the Cavaliers are averaging 110.3 points, 43.8 rebounds and 22.7 assists per game. The over/under total for the game is listed at 202 points.

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

Since the all-star break, the Cavs have allowed 107.9 points per 100 possessions on defense.

He scored nine points and grabbed two rebounds in the 98-83 loss to the Toronto Raptors, the Cavs' likely foe in the second round of the playoffs.

"We just thought these two guys were what we needed going into the playoffs to potentially help us", Lue said. "For now, it was really good". "And I know we can win the series".
