LeBron James unsure about Ty Lue's job security

LeBron James unsure about Ty Lue's job security”

Kevin Durant led Golden State with 26 points, Draymond Green had 21 and Curry added 19 on a night he went 5 of 15 on 3-point attempts.

The Thunder had their way with Cleveland in the first half.

The mood was somber and quiet, not the same place.

James said he's not disappointed that he didn't get to 30,000 on Saturday. "But it felt like a win".

Isaiah Thomas tallied 24 points for the Cavaliers, who've lost nine of 12 games. The three officials ruled there was an inadvertent whistle and held a jump ball at midcourt.

"I thought we really tried to stay vertical with him", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. "It was a lot of back and forth. I'm just focused on coaching the guys that we have".

A roller-coaster season in Cleveland is on a steady, accelerating descent. Paul George also had a remarkably productive afternoon and torched Cleveland to the tune of 36 points while wearing his brand new signature kicks. "We just haven't been healthy the whole year". Golden State lost away from home for the first time since November 22. While they're still a top 4 seeded team in the East, they're not almost good enough to beat the Warriors, Rockets, or Celtics.

Lue, though, decided not to show his players film of the debacle against Oklahoma City. He went for only 17 minutes, however, during the Lakers game.

Thomas was sent to the line with 11 seconds left when referee Kane Fitzgerald called a foul on Orlando's Shelvin Mack.

"I'm disappointed for our guys", Vogel said. "We didn't get the breaks down the stretch". It was the most points for the Thunder in regulation since moving to Oklahoma City, and the second 20-20 game of Westbrook's career. While that speaks to Lue's failures to follow-up his words with the necessary actions and is something players will notice, these lineup issues are issues with his gameplan.

"I thought he looked pretty good", James said.

How much longer can this farce continue? He gave us everything he had.

Thunder: G Andre Roberson played his second game after missing eight with left patellar tendinitis.

James finished with 18 points and is seven shy of becoming the seventh player in National Basketball Association history to reach the 30,000-point plateau. "I don't know what's going to happen with our team". "I don't play fantasy anything". I think he's doing a great job in that regard, as far as getting everybody in the game. He'll be the youngest player to hit that mark, regardless of when he does it this season. James and the Cavaliers are going through their annual January freeze.

Cleveland has the offensive potential to close a 16-point gap in one half of play, but the question was whether they could muster enough defense.
