Warriors Tonight: All systems 'go' for Curry at Toronto?

Cavaliers looking to turn it around against strong Raptors

LeBron James and the Cavaliers got blown out again on Thursday night.

The Toronto Raptors played their best game of the 2017-18 season on Thursday, and they did it on their biggest stage of their schedule so far - in a USA national television broadcast against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. So when Irving witnessed a video of James laying into his Cavaliers teammates on Thursday night, it elicited an impulsive - or perhaps intentional - response from the Boston Celtics guard, which manifested itself in the form of an Instagram like.

Following an 18-1 run from November 11 through December 17, the Cavs have lost seven of 10 games.

With the win, the Pacers have clinched the season series over the Cavs. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game.

Raptors superstar DeMar DeRozan also only had 13 points as most of the damage came off the bench.

Ibaka served a one-game suspension for throwing a punch at Miami's James Johnson in Tuesday's home loss to the Heat. LeBron, * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/advanced/?sort=OFF_RATING&dir=-1&CF=MIN*GE*15&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&DateFrom=12%2F18%2F2017&DateTo=01%2F12%2F2018&TeamID=1610612739" *who has had the highest player impact estimate on the team in the last 10 games, appeared to be looking for that someone on the sideline to start fighting for wins. Toronto ranks second in the National Basketball Association for games with at least 125 points, trailing only Golden State (13).

Cleveland, which lost its previous two games by a combined 62 points, was outscored 84-61 over the final three quarters. He's not a flashy passer and no one will mistake him for Chris Paul, but DeRozan has been better this season at simply finding the open man and swinging the ball to shooters, when in the past he was more likely to take a less-than-ideal shot. Toronto has lost seven straight to the Warriors.

Angelique Kerber Beats Ashleigh Barty To Win Sydney International
Kerber won her four matches at last week's mixed teams Hopman Cup in Perth before her five victories in Sydney. It is her 11th career WTA title and positions her as one of the favourites for the Australian Open.

Whatever the reason, the Cavs were inconsistently consistent. At this point? Three and a half, four years into this thing?

Bojan Bogdanovic got the start on James, who scored 21 of his 27 points over the first three quarters. Jonas Valanciunas was a monster in the paint with 18 rebounds (12 defensive, six offensive) and 15 points.

At Minnesota, the game was virtually over when the Timberwolves jumped out to a 20-4 lead on the Cavs.

The Cavs scored the first four points of the final frame to move back in front, but the Pacers retook the lead a coupe minutes later, thanks to Stephenson.

And it's not surprising this recent downturn has coincided with the return of Isaiah Thomas, who is trying to get up to speed after spending the past several months rehabbing his injured right hip.

Love's 3-pointer with 6:57 remaining put the visitors back in front, and James followed with two layups to pus the margin to five. "And if guys have agendas, we've got to get rid of those agendas and play the right way". After the game, Stephenson told the Pacers broadcast he wanted to get James to think about him.
