LeBron James ties franchise scoring mark: Tristan Thompson reacts from back home

LeBron James ties franchise scoring mark: Tristan Thompson reacts from back home”

That's what it feels like.

Judging by the bags under coach Tyronn Lue's eyes, not everyone is taking the Cleveland Cavaliers' early season slide lightly.

At the time of writing, the Cavaliers are 13th in the Eastern Conference with a 3-5 record and owners of a miserable four-game losing streak.

The Cavaliers had likely been preparing for the worst, given one account from just after Wednesday night's loss. He hurdled over a seated Bradley Beal while dribbling, swatted a shot by John Wall off the backboard, and looked for a camera to wag both index fingers in the midst of a three-point play.

The Cavaliers are now doing neither, but with more shooting efficiency around the league, their lack of scoring may be as crippling as their 111.3 defensive rating, 2 worst in the National Basketball Association.

In the process, James also passed Kevin Garnett for 12th all-time in field goals made.

"Got to figure out a way to motivate yourself to get back to that top level of game".

The Wizards play the Cavaliers at 7 PM on ESPN. Hopefully players aren't too satisfied to let their guard down.

It's Season 15, LeBron James is still being nasty; 38 points after 3 quarters.

Even the best of teams lose games they shouldn't.

Thompson suffered the injury late in the second quarter of the Cavs' 124-107 loss to the Pacers in Cleveland.

That doesn't mean he wasn't paying attention - and enjoying the LeBron James show - like so many others Friday night.

It wasn't good. Thompson left the game with a strained left calf and he the Cleveland Cavaliers forward is slated to miss a month of action as a result.

But don't sleep on Porter on the offensive end, as he's averaged 18.7 points on 55.7 percent shooting, including 51.7 percent from beyond the arc. The Wizards defeated the Cavaliers 127-115. He's averaging a spectacular-for-anyone-else 25.6 points, 8.9 assists and seven rebounds at age 32.

BULLS 105, MAGIC 83: Justin Holiday scored 19 points, and Robin Lopez had 11 points and 10 rebounds as Chicago won at Orlando, Florida.

By halftime, Cleveland's lead was 74-66 on 66 percent shooting. The speedy guard has also hit 11 of 22 from long range in that span.

Thompson's lone ability is his offensive rebounding skills, but he's a non factor in offense and a very subpar defender as well, and with the Cavs deciding to roll with Kevin Love at center since the start of the season, they just don't need a mediocre big man like the Canadian, although moving him is going to be quite hard due to that contract. Against the Golden State Warriors, he was the best player on the floor. This marks the first time Washington plays against Crowder, since that fateful game 7 in Boston. And although the 3-time champion isn't on the list, Dwyane Wade and his knees prefer limited minutes.

Effort, which was buried by repetitive mistakes against IN, has become more noticeable against another hot Eastern Conference team IN Washington for the Cavaliers.
