Friday's National Basketball Association roundup: Warriors' surge defeats Bucks

Friday's National Basketball Association roundup: Warriors' surge defeats Bucks

Although they have yet to master it like Golden State, Toronto's 29-11 record is a franchise best at the 40-game mark of a season.

The problems at Cleveland continued last night when the team lost their third game in succession against the Indiana Pacers.

By now, you'd think Pacer fans would stop writing their team off after a slow start.

As the Cavs only interior defensive presence, though, Thompson provides value that's hard to measure during the regular season where the Cavs barely try on defense.

But it wasn't until the backups assembled in the second quarter that the possibility of back-to-back blowout losses for the Cavaliers, who lost by 28 points to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, took shape. More than any other Pacers player, he seems to feed off the home crowd's energy, just as the crowd feeds off him. Cleveland allowed a season-high in points and three-pointers in the loss. He finished with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds, while Kevin Love had 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Whatever the reason, the Cavs were inconsistently consistent.

It's the first time in James' career he's been involved in back-to-back losses of 25 points or more and the Cavaliers' defence is being blasted as "embarrassing".

While talking about the possibility of retirement, James quipped that he couldn't do so just yet, because "I've got too many sneakers to sell".

Lance Stephenson's 16 points and 11 rebounds, along with Darren Collison's 22 points, saw the Pacers register a third win in four and make it three-out-of-three against the Cavaliers.

Wall injured his ankle on the final play of the first half after landing on teammate Marcin Gortat's foot while attempting to rebound. As a result, IN faced a 24-6 deficit with 4:48 remaining IN the first quarter.

Star guard Kyrie Irving scored 20 points with seven assists and six rebounds for the Celtics. Toronto ranks second in the National Basketball Association for games with at least 125 points, trailing only Golden State (13). "It's going to be a whole different type of game and we have to be ready for that". Isaiah Thomas, who sat out the second night of a back-to-back to protect his hip, has struggled in four games with 12.3 points per game and a 35.3 field-goal percentage.

INDIANAPOLIS - Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that he addressed his "agendas" comment with his players. "Nevertheless, the superstar talent of Oklahoma City's Paul George or New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins, each deserving of that Nets first-rounder, won't see the light in this trade market as of right now, league sources said, as those teams are fully focused on winning with each respective player".
