LeBron James: We're So Fragile

Five Keys Cavaliers at Raptors

But Pacers fans hoped their team could at least win one and keep from being swept-and they almost did.

Pacers center Myles Turner (elbow) missed the contest against Miami and will be sidelined again versus Cleveland.

Jordan has played and started 41 games with the Clippers.

He left the court but opened the second half and scored 10 points in the third quarter, including an emphatic driving dunk.

Trailing 6-4, Cleveland used a 22-0 run to take a 26-6 lead in the first quarter. Their offensive efficiency ramped up as they shot 66.7% from the field and 50% from beyond the arc.

Irving's replacement, Isaiah Thomas didn't help James' fury as the recovering point guard (hip) knocked down just 2 of 15 shots.

Cleveland, which lost its previous two games by a combined 62 points, was outscored 84-61 over the final three quarters.

All that the Pacers had to do to pull off a victory was maintain their slight edge.

The Pacers average 18.2 points off turnovers per game, which ranks fourth in the National Basketball Association.

The loss to the Raptors was the Cavaliers' third straight game in which they gave up more than 127 points to their opponent.

Karl-Anthony Towns fell one assist shy of his second career triple-double, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds as the Timberwolves dumped the Knicks 118-108.

This would all be a lot easier if the Cavs knew what LeBron James planned to do once he becomes a free agent this summer, but that answer isn't coming any time soon. Ultimately, his pestering resulted in a crucial technical foul call that ended up being crucial for the Pacers.

"I'm going to say this and we're going to move forward because it's over", Lue said before the Cavs played the Indiana Pacers. "I was surprised (James reacted)". "That was the first time he really showed he was mad ... So, yeah, I was surprised". It was lethal against a Cleveland team that prefers to set up plays in the halfcourt. They're a big, physical team. The Pacers were far more efficient and it was crucial in the end.

Consistency is another area the Cavs need to address.

Jonas Valanciunas, left, dominated early, putting up nine points and nine rebounds in little more than six minutes.

Cleveland was able to do basically whatever they wanted easily in the opening period.

Cleveland has a respectable 26-15 straight up (SU) record, but they have a hard time covering the spread (12-27-1 against the spread (ATS)).

Sure, the Raptors embarrassed the Cavaliers 133-99 without Kyle Lowry and with DeMar DeRozan held to 13 points.

Clearly, the Cavaliers have problems especially on defense.

The Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to IN after two-consecutive annihilations by the Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors.

The internet didn't love LeBron's decision to step in to coach.
