LeBron is Preparing for Isaiah Thomas' Return by Playing NBA 2K

Are the host Cleveland Cavaliers going to dominate at home and win a 13th straight game tonight when they play the Sacramento Kings at 7PM ET?

They now have won 13 consecutive games.

James, who also finished with 11 rebounds, nine assists and seven turnovers, scored the last five points, with a driving skyhook and then a dagger 3-pointer with 15.8 seconds to go. Frye was marveling at how James, who'll turn 33 later this month, is averaging 28.0 points, 8.5 assists and 7.9 rebounds per game while playing at what Frye judged to be 80 percent of his peak form. His decisive 3-pointer in the final minute over JaKarr Sampson came after James went to the bench during a timeout and told coach Tyronn Lue to run a play for him.

Cleveland will now set their sights on the franchise record in IN as they take on the Pacers on Saturday (AEDT) at 11:00 a.m. Rose remains out with a sprained left ankle.

There's not a ton of complexity involved in the play; the idea is to get the ball to James with as few people around him as possible and have him score.

"Looks pretty good", James said. "He's a quiet guy". Sampson, who is from Cleveland, started at center Wednesday in place of the injured Willie Cauley-Stein. Then he learned he was guarding James.

When asked if recent developments in Thomas' rehab could accelerate that timeline, Lue said, "I'm not sure". "I look at moments like this, it was fun".

Firstly, LeBron is a basketball genius who will go to any length to give his team a competitive advantage-James is apparently so well-versed in both his and his opponents' styles that he routinely calls out the other team's plays while he's on defense. "That's what I tried to do, but we came up short". "When they say they feel good the next day after a workout session, that's great to know". While it's still not clear when Thomas will play, Thompson, who has missed 17 games since November 1 with a strained left calf, could be back in the floor in days. Thomas has not played this season as he recovers from a labral tear in his hip.

"I'm always ready to play - even when I first got hurt I was always ready to play", Thompson said. "I got to stay in my lane like LaVar Ball said", he added, referring to the outspoken father of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball.

Sacramento is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 meetings in Cleveland.

Next time the Kings take the hardwood will be against the New Orleans Pelicans Friday night.
