    Default Game #40: Cleveland Cavaliers 99 - Toronto Raptors 133

    @

    Starting Lineups

    Raptors

    PG: Delon Wright
    SG: Demar Derozan
    SF: OG Anunoby
    PF: Serge Ibaka
    C: Jonas Valanciunas



    Cavaliers

    PG: Isaiah Thomas
    SG: J.R. Smith
    SF: LeBron James
    PF: Jae Crowder
    C: Kevin Love


    Loses happen: on January 6, the Timberwolves clocked the Cavs by 28 points and it wasn't a back to back. Tough games like this provide teachable moments and experience to draw upon when the playoffs come around.

    The Raps are not going to win every game and I'd rather tough hard fought loses like this over 28 point blow outs. Breathe folks, the sky isn't falling.


    Keys to the Game:

    1. Grab rebounds.

    2. Share the ball and make your open shots.

    3. Play some defence Actually, play a lot of defence.

    4. Come out with a W!



    Let's Go Raptors!!!

    Way to step up, Z. I don't think anybody wanted to take this game thread, with Lowry out and the Cavs coming off the wrong end of a blowout.

    Why would they suspend a key player for a marquee matchup? Itís bad for competition. Really lame on behalf of the league.

    Yeah, like I said this was going to be either a 1 or 2 game suspension. This is a win.

    Plus, this way Ibaka gets rest days, so he'll be rested for the Warriors game.

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    Itís just bad for the league when a little scuffle like that results in $30k lost and two entertaining players being sidelined, one for a big conference game. They should let players go at each other a bit more, it makes for more entertaining games.

    You kidding right? Last year his fight vs Lopez was showed everywhere in the World... even BBC Sport picked it up. That's a bad look for the NBA. He was suspended by the team for altercation last month, too. Ibaka's track record is poor.

    But this is okay right?



    Ibaka getting suspended if fine by me if the league is going to hand out punishments to everyone fairly. Fact is they don't.

    Adam SIlver loves Karate chops, so let's use it to our advantage. LeBron is in the Six.
