During their last five games, the Pacers have scored an average of 106.2 points per game (1.1 below their season average) and allowed an average of 105.0 points per game (1.8 below their season average). James posted 39 points in Cleveland's loss to the Bucks on December 19 and 14 assists in the Cavs' loss to the Kings on December 27.

Cleveland Cavaliers' star LeBron James said his kids will play a big factor in the length of his career.

Meh. On to the next thing. "We've got to take advantage of that", said VanVleet. So it never stops.

"We've got to be better", Lue said, per ESPN. The Raptors bench provided a season-high 76 points, and the team had 31 assists on 53 field goals.

Overcoming a 20-0 run is rarely a recipe for success, but the Indiana Pacers had the right chefs in the kitchen on Friday night.

This is not an insignificant achievement. They didn't. They fought and won an important game that may have a huge impact on seeding during playoff time. They are in the middle of the pack in terms of pace, however.

They're second only to Golden State in the National Basketball Association in net rating.

The Toronto Raptors look to keep the ball rolling after winning 12 of their last 15 games. "They're a tough team, but we came out and played smart defense and made the right plays". "We're not there totally yet, we're getting there".

"We're in a funk", James said.

Poch on Kane: It's good that Jimmy's record is so far
However, they found themselves having to contain Kane , Son , Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen as Spurs' attacking four shone. Kane also became Spurs' all-time leading scorer in the Premier League , with his brace taking up to 98 league goals.

LeBron refused to elaborate on what he said to Handy during the timeout after the game.

"I just thought T-Top did a good job defensively", Lue said.

The Pacers have now won six games this season when trailing by at least 10 points.

McMillan and the Pacers were fortunate that LeBron's final shot missed. The Cavs have lost three straight, seven of nine and eight of 11, finishing the five-game road trip at 1-4.

The Raptors improved to a 15-2 at home despite playing Thursday without starters Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka. That would distract them from the process of gradual improvement.

DeRozan credited a strong offensive flow for how the game unfolded. "For us we just remember what we did wrong and how to correct it the next go-around".

It's an outlook that has permeated the group.

THE SLUMPING Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a crushing 133-99 defeat to the Toronto Raptors as LeBron James was left less than impressed. "It's not you're guarding (Victor) Oladipo or I'm guarding Oladipo, we're all guarding Oladipo". "One player they've discussed, DeAndre Jordan, the Clippers center, he does not rise to the level in Cleveland, I'm told, of putting that Brooklyn pick in". "DeMar was just taking what the game gave him". They don't expect Saturday to be any different. "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".

Earlier in the day, James, the best player of this and most other generations held court with the media. You want to. It's fun, it's exciting, you get up for it, you can't sleep at night. "Just some plays that we should come up with, that you should make".
