Not his best shooting night, but he had a solid all-around game.

You mean a 1 point win for Cleveland in which IT hit the game winning free throws.

Wow, I completely missed that.  TP.  Good for him!

Cavs really looks bad despite the win.

Cavaliers play @OKC this afternoon on ABC, then they play the Spurs on Tuesday night.

They are coming off a really, really close win vs. Orlando, and if they drop these next two games to elite Western foes, they may start to get desperate on the trade market, and Lebron could get restless too.

Of course, we'll have to see how Isaiah does these next two games. Their Finals aspirations does also hinge on him being a consistent 23-25 PPG scoring option.

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

Lets go okc

I'm pretty interested in this game. Cleveland is a favorite at home, but okc could dominate inside. How will IT try to stop Westbrook?

Why Lue continues to have Love at the 5 instead of starting TT is beyond me. The offensive gains do not make up for what it does to their D and lesser rebounding without TT.

And from what I've seen Lue is having IT guard Westbrook instead of Roberson, who is potentially the worst offensive guard in the league. I don't think Roberson is really much of a post-up threat either.

Someone want to explain this to me? How much of the Cavs' terrible defense is on Lue?

Westbrook has been playing nice, getting everybody involved.

Love at 5 worked a few game and Lue is convinced it will work every game now .

33 points for OKC with over 4 minutes left in the first. Cleveland's D is awful.

When OKC is locked in, they're fun to watch.
