Lance Stephenson trolls LeBron James as the Pacers take down Cavaliers

Lance Stephenson trolls LeBron James as the Pacers take down Cavaliers

James is known to be a ball-dominant player [VIDEO], essentially having a hand in most of the points [VIDEO] the Cavaliers score.

The Toronto Raptors shocked the basketball world on Thursday as they blew out the defending Eastern Conference champions, Cleveland Cavaliers, by 34 points. It was lethal against a Cleveland team that prefers to set up plays in the halfcourt.

It's probably time for the Cavaliers to have a team meeting to clear the air out.

As impressive as their 133-99 victory over the Cavaliers was, the Raptors spent Friday trying to put it into perspective.

When asked about it afterward, the players were confused, with each saying they didn't have one. The 33-year-old is a triple-double threat on any given night, averaging 27.1 points, 8.8 assists, and 8.0 rebounds per game. Kevin Durant was the top scorer for the Warriors with 26 points. "And they don't know how much of their future they want to try to mortgage to try and win this year", Wojnarowski said during an appearance on ESPN's "SportsCenter", via NESN.

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

We thought that the Minnesota Timberwolves smashing the Cleveland Cavaliers by 28 was as bad as it could get. "He's a little dirty", James said.

"It feels good, but it's a long season", a more subdued Stephenson said in the locker room. "That changes the whole dynamic".

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.

Gone are the days of Toronto relying on one Lowry or DeRozan isolation after another offensively.

The Clippers, who lost DeAndre Jordan to a sprained left ankle in the second quarter, won their third successive game over the Kings this season and their 11th in a row at Sacramento. This result is following two consecutive thrashings by the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Toronto Raptors.

"We went 1-5, 1-4, whatever the hell it was, on this road trip, so there ain't no progress", James said. This is just us. "When he's out, we have to execute better at both ends".

In the meantime, the Cavaliers can't just wait for the turnaround to happen, because it has happened so many times before.

Casey said he sees improvement in his team. "There's a lot of factors that go into it, moreso than just looking at numbers".

Critics will claim the game was meaningless and that Cleveland's effort wanes from night-to-night.

Joel Embiid had 16 points and fellow All-Star hopeful Ben Simmons added 15 for the 76ers. He missed Tuesday's loss to the Miami Heat, and he is listed as doubtful for tonight's game against Cleveland.
