Cavaliers to sign Dahntay Jones for playoffs

Damon Campbell | 14 April, 2017, 16:22

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook will sit out Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after notching his NBA-record 42nd triple-double of the season Sunday against the Denver Nuggets. People in Cleveland were livid while people in Miami rejoiced, as they thought they had a super team on their hands. "(The game) is going to be a little different because everyone is not going to be on the floor for long stretches but I think we will be able to figure it out".

Part of it was the "Disease of Me", stemming from them being the defending National Basketball Association champions. Many of these fans who paid huge amounts of money to see LeBron, of course, got home late and then woke up early to go to work.

He blames himself for some of it. There have been multiple instances of the players downplaying the importance of the regular season, assuming they will be fine once the playoffs roll around.

That's because the Cavs can be a great team.at times. Stephen Curry and the Warriors' price will only drop farther as the playoff field gets whittled down, assuming they don't have an epic collapse. They are 51-31 on the season and will face the Utah Jazz in the first round.

When pressed to expand upon it, all he could say was "We're good".

"And that meant the hometown Cavs - even if they didn't know it, and all of their actions showed they didn't - were in the lead".

There are days off, plenty of practice and preparation time.

Sarah Dollard, who wrote 2015 episode Face the Raven (where Jenna Coleman's Clara Oswald was killed) is back for the period tale. When asked about this season's theme, Moffat said: "They're just flung into that universe and told to deal with it".

In James' second year in Miami and Cleveland, both teams won a title and Miami repeated in the third year and lost in the fourth. Jeff Teague had a big night against his former team with 19 points and seven assists. Point being, there was other teams with more serious injuries who are still in much better shape right now entering the playoffs.

Griffin mentioned how his team likes to have its "back to the wall". Dragic tied it for the Heat with a long jumper, Miami got a stop on the final Cleveland possession and to overtime they went.

"Well, it's here now", Lue said of the postseason. For a team that is careening toward the finish line - the Cavs' current three-game losing streak puts their record at just 11-14 in their past 25 games (and we thought that 19-20 start in 2014-15 was alarming) - a chance to regroup is welcome. Now, the Cavaliers can certainly play good defense, as they proved in last year's Finals, but the past several games have cast a shadow of doubt on the defending champions.

Veterans Kyle Korver and Deron Williams should be an upgrade over Matthew Dellavedova and Timofey Mozgov.

Kyrie Irving dealt with minor, nagging knee issues, which are still worth monitoring throughout the Playoffs, but have not caused the All-Star point guard to miss much time.

The Heat are 3-0 against Washington this season. He is with Milwaukee, a possible second-round opponent for the Cavs this postseason. But the Cavs still made the move of signing the enigmatic center to a two-year non-guaranteed deal in hopes of Sanders getting better for next season.
