Raptors roll to rout — and 8th straight win

Isaiah Thomas and LeBron hug it out

He will either sign another deal with the Cavaliers, or go to the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets or the Philadelphia 76ers.

Starting center Larry Nance Jr. had 24 points and eight rebounds, and Jordan Clarkson added four points in their first game against the Lakers since they were traded for Thomas and Channing Frye on February 8. There were also a lot of handshakes, smiles, and pleasantries exchanged in the middle of the court between Thomas and his former teammates. The loss dropped the Cavs into fourth place among teams in the Eastern Conference, one half-game behind the Indiana Pacers.

LeBron spotted big man Ante Zizic rolling towards the basket and in the blink of an eye, the Cavs had a wide open dunk. After Sunday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Walton was eager to discuss Thomas' impact on the team so far.

After the victory, in which Thomas scored 20 points, dished out nine assists and grabbed five rebounds, he told reporters the following.

Though the Spurs are just 5-4 this season when the forward plays, his presence gives them a singular talent to lean on that is otherwise missing from the lineup.

The only bottom-feeders the Spurs will play from here on out are Orlando on Tuesday and Sacramento in their penultimate game on April 9. Davis had 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks. The Cavaliers have won just four of their last 10 games. By the halftime had arrived, the Lakers held a 65-60 lead, adding eight more assists to their total while drilling six 3-pointers. If the four-time NBA MVP declares for free agency following this season, the Lakers are believed to be among the frontrunners for his services.

Cleveland lost 127-113 to the Lakers on Sunday night, and when asked about the team's situation, James was blunt in why they were suffering.

"It was something I always knew I could do", Randle said "Just take time to continue to learn the game, continue to grow and develop as a player". But what's the point of having rules if they don't get enforced?

Celebrities such as Mayweather, Adam Levine, Jason Sudeikis and Marlon Wayans joined Lakers fixture Jack Nicholson to get their glimpse of James' only trip to Los Angeles to play the Lakers this season. He is progressing well, but the Lakers expect him to miss at least two more games.
