Best Memes of the Toronto Raptors Obliterating LeBron James & the Cleveland Cavaliers


DeMar DeRozan scored 35 points to power the Toronto Raptors (26-10) to a 124-115 victory at Chicago while Greek standout Giannis Antetokounmpo had 31 points and 10 rebounds in Milwaukee's 122-101 home romp over Indiana.

Here's what LeBron James had to say about Cleveland weather: "Man just landed back in Cleveland and I have to say in the 29 years I've lived here this is the coldest I've felt it!"

The Cavaliers (26-15) will play the second of back-to-back games Friday night at IN (21-20).

Reason for concern: Philadelphia entered Thursday 1-5 in games decided by three points or less, and 1-7 in games where it doesn't score 100 points. Most of the heavy offensive lifting was provided by the bench, which accounted for 76 of Toronto's 133 total with four players - VanVleet, Powell, Poeltl and Siakam all scoring in double figures.

Thomas was very effective in his first two games, but his last few outings have been terrible.

Since then, though, the Cavs haven't been almost as impressive and, currently, Cleveland is in the midst of a losing spell with six defeats in eight games.

Stephenson played well against the Cavs. "It's on me to go out there, to understand how teams are going to play me, for me to understand how I can make my teammates excel at the highest level". Curry is listed as questionable for Saturday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers watched a 22-point first-quarter lead evaporate and suffered their third consecutive loss as they dropped a 97-95 decision to the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday night.

"Completely different, completely different dynamic of the game", said DeRozan on Friday when comparing the Cavaliers and Warriors. "So we got to be better". "That was the message tonight before the game and ultimately that's what happened".

Last year's Cavs squad finished the season 22nd in defensive rating and generally proved that they could flip the proverbial switch in the postseason when they all cared. Lowry was sidelined with a bruised tailbone, Ibaka suspended one game by the league for fighting in Monday's loss to the Miami Heat.

Golden State defeated Toronto 117-112 on October 25 at Oakland.

"We're adjusting a little bit better offensively to be effective and efficient every night", he said. He kept close to LeBron James even when the ball wasn't in play, which lead to the two doing the usual light pushes that players tend to do.

LeBron James had a meltdown in the midst of getting blown out by the Toronto Raptors, and Cavs coach Ty Lue is saying that the team needs to get rid of its hidden agendas - whatever that means. "Nowadays, it's not about the moment, it's kind of about the process and the long run of it".
