LeBron James: We're So Fragile

LeBron James: We're So Fragile

LeBron James finished with 27 points but still couldn't prevent his Cleveland side blowing a 22-point lead to lose to IN 97-95 IN the National Basketball Association. "We got stops, we were able to get out in transition and then the threes started falling somewhere in the second quarter".

Looks like were in the midst of a mid-season Cleveland Cavaliers swoon.

Cavaliers big man Kevin Love injured his right ankle late in the second quarter and managed only two points on 1-of-11 shooting.

It is easy to understand why James was livid as the Cavs lost for the seventh time in their last 10 games.

The Good: The Pacers once again shrugged off a massive deficit on their way to a win.

The team's new-found reliance on the three-point shot along with a deep bench anchored by the likes of VanVleet, Jakob Poeltl, Norman Powell and Pascal Siakam can be credited with Toronto's strong showing so far. Toronto is 15-2 at home this season and is fresh off a 133-99 trouncing of LeBron James and the Cavaliers on Thursday. Darren Collison split a pair of free throws, and the Cavs (having taken two timeouts prior to the out of bounds misstep) were left trying to go the length of the court.

MVP: Lance Stephenson, but not because he annoyed LeBron. Friday's funk was better than it has been lately, however. "They're continuing to be themselves, continue to get better, and next time they come around, be prepared".


Thomas went 0-for-11 with several attempts blocked before ending the drought with 7:22 left in the third quarter. James scored 26 points in this loss, while Isaiah Thomas missed his first 11 shots. He finished with four points and registered a minus-20. You often forget the contributions he makes as Oladipo and Stephenson grab the spotlight. Going into Thursday, seven teams were within five games of each other for the final five playoff spots in the East - and six teams within five games are in the mix for the final four spots out West. It did. Just not the way many expected.

Some ugly play and questionable defense are countered by a pair of treys. He made play after play down the stretch and when the game was over the Pacers' showman was celebrating.

Saturday's game marks the midway point of the regular season for the Raptors who, with a record of 29-11, have already set a franchise record for the most wins in an opening half. Sabonis is showing that he is good enough to start, but he still has plenty to work on as well. "We're getting there. Defensively, we're executing the things we want to do, whether it's switching, handling pick-and-rolls and just being efficient".

Still a rookie, and looked like one.

The Pacers responded in kind with a second charge.

The Pacers play the Phoenix Suns at 8 p.m. on Sunday to begin their Western Conference road trip.
