Warriors top Cavaliers again for season sweep

Dwight Howard was 9 of 12 from the floor to score 21 points with 17 rebounds in a 118-107 road victory over the Pistons. Cleveland are at 26-17, and are struggling to pull out of a slump in form which has included eight defeats in their last 10 games.

Even before Thomas made his debut, Thomas was quick to point out this quirk of the veteran Cleveland Cavaliers.

James stepped out of bounds with 1.7 seconds to go, a call that was confirmed by video replay.

Naturally, the disappointment of the Warriors loss was fresh on the players' minds when they spoke Monday. "We weren't pushing the pace and we were settling for jump shots". Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and Draymond Green is grabbing 7.7 rebounds.

National Basketball Association players will never admit it, but they love the media. "Boston is better than it was past year".

Since returning from his hip injury, Isaiah Thomas is averaging 13.6 points and 3.4 assists, while shooting 36 percent overall and just over 23 percent from deep.

"I just want him to take the shots that are given to him", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue. Still, Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue said he considers his team the class of the East. "He does exactly what we tell him to do, he don't make mistakes". "Now, we still have a ways to go". "He'll figure it out". They lost three straight and eight of 11 before playing the Warriors.

A small burst by the Cavs cut the deficit to two, 93-91 heading into the fourth quarter-which is when things got out of hand.

Who the Public Likes: Golden State.

"At home, we just relax a little bit", Durant said. "Way better. We have grown a lot". "Right now, Looney is in a better groove and sort of in a better place in terms of understanding what we're doing".

Instead, the Cavs justified exactly why Golden State was saving their effort for another, more challenging, game.

While most of Minnesota is focused on the Vikings' trip to the NFC Championship Game, the Minnesota Timberwolves are on a pretty good roll. Playing in front of his own fans, the OH native was clearly ready to put on a show, netting 16 points in 12 minutes and his team-mates also stepped up to the mark. First, he threw down a resounding dunk off a Thomas lob, then he swatted a Durant driving layup attempt off the glass, both to the delight of most of the 20,562 fans in attendance.

One trusted source pulled me aside at the @nbagleague Showcase last week in suburban Toronto and insisted that the Cavs will "definitely" swing at least one deal before the February 8 trade deadline.
