Cleveland Cavaliers' Comeback Win Over Toronto Raptors Could Change Season: Larry Drew

Toronto exploded for a franchise record-tying 79 points in the first half of their game on Wednesday night in Cleveland, but blew a 15-point lead at the break and lost 132-129 to the Cavs. George Hill added 22 points. That they were able to do it without key rotation pieces only added to the feeling that Wednesday was more than just another game, which is probably why Drew's comments after the game were so positive.

Stein says it's likely new general manager Scott Perry will fire Hornacek, who has one year left on his deal, and hand-pick a new coach to lead the team next season.

But they still had James, who earlier in the day said, "I'll be available, so we got a chance". While the leaders have been impressive this year, they once again became victims to James' Cavaliers with Wednesday's win taking their losing run in Cleveland to 1-8.

James scored or assisted on 80 of his team's 132 points, and in the process silenced any doubts as to whether the Cavs could handle an improved Toronto team that has more depth, shooters and experience than the squads Cleveland dispatched the past two postseasons.

Numerous politicians in both the USA and United Kingdom have called on Zuckerberg to testify about the company's data practices. Brian Acton, the co-founder of WhatsApp, which was acquired by Facebook four years ago for $19 billion, has joined the cause.

"For the most part, to close out the game, we had guys that have played in big games, for the most part", he said.

"No, no, no", James said, in response to being asked about a single elimination play-off for the final two spots. "So we want to continue just to work [on] our habits, and we'll see what happens". The fact that the team has dealt with so many injuries and significant trades has made their hopes of achieving a top spot in the playoff race more hard.

Even after a well-received trade deadline, the 2017-18 Cavs seem nearly certain to go down as the worst roster LeBron James has been a member of since his first go-round with the organization. She said co-workers were told they risked their jobs by talking to Kline.

While it would be ideal to avoid playing against Cleveland in the postseason, what better way to prove you are worthy of being the team to come out of the East than to eliminate the King. In Oklahoma City's win over Toronto on March 18 (Mar. 19, PHL time), Westbrook registered his fifth consecutive triple-double with a game-leading 37 points, game-high 13 rebounds and game-best 14 assists. One of his cross-court passes, on the money and on a line, was converted by Jeff Green, a play only James can make.

Season 3 is expected to start production sometime next month and premiere sometime in 2019. According to Hollywood Reporter , the actors are divided into three tiers.

Both teams were on fire, the Cavs making 75% of their three-pointers, the Raptors not far behind, draining buckets from distance at a 64% clip. "They're still a top team in our conference. you can't overlook them or under [rate] them no type of way, no matter what type of changes they make". Them proving to themselves that they can beat a fully healthy Raptors team with only a partially healthy team is huge.

Despite the changes, one thing seems to always stay the same: James. "I mean, 17 assists".

James couldn't be stopped and everything Cleveland initiated went through his hands, which is why he had such a presence, as he always does in big games. "I'm just glad that I'm coaching him".
