James also called the Cavaliers fragile in November of 2014 after a loss against the Raptors. It was lethal against a Cleveland team that prefers to set up plays in the halfcourt.

Since taking the job, Peebles has remained a member of the Cavaliers Wine and Gold Club, Cleveland's season-ticket holder club which he has been a member of for four years. His length and three-point shooting capabilities will come in handy against a ridiculously talented Warriors outfit, sporting an National Basketball Association best record of 33-9 heading into their game Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.

James was visibly upset with his teammates' defensive effort, tearing into the Cavaliers during one of their timeouts, angrily clapping as he shouted at them.

After falling behind 6-4, the Cavs went on a 22-0 run in the first quarter. "I've already exceeded everything that I've ever dreamed about so at this point I'm just adding insane toppings on the cake like my daughter would do". This is just us.

By contrast, the Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.7 points per game) and three-point shooting (39 per cent).

With about eight minutes left in the game, the Pacers swingman was able to get James to commit a technical foul. "That changes the whole dynamic". At this point? Three and a half, four years into this thing?

Gone are the days of Toronto relying on one Lowry or DeRozan isolation after another offensively. Just because LeBron hasn't been beaten before the NBA Finals doesn't mean he can't be, it'll just require a different type of Raptors team to do so.

Cleveland will attempt to snap its two-game losing streak Friday night against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. In favor of the Toronto Raptors. The Ringer's Zachary Kram pointed out that this is the first time in James's career that he's lost two games in a row by more than 25 points.

For the last six games, the team's defence was "not where we want it to be", he said. "Right now it's just tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel but it is there". "We're not there totally yet, we're getting there". Times where we're not playing well.

According to Casey, having success with the new system helps but isn't everything.

"There's a few games but you could nitpick so much, dwell on it", said DeRozan. They will look to get back to winning ways on Martin Luther King Jr. day.

"You're dealing with human behaviour and human behaviour is unpredictable sometimes".

Thomas, who will sit out at IN because he has not been cleared to play both nights of a back-to-back, finished with four points, two rebounds and three assists, hitting 2-of-15 field goals and 0-for-6 from long range.

Lance Stephenson finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers who improved to 22-20 on the season in front of a crowd of 17,900 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse arena. Lowry was sidelined with a bruised tailbone, Ibaka suspended one game by the league for fighting in Monday's loss to the Miami Heat.
