JR Smith Dismisses Claim Cavaliers Tanked to Avoid Wizards in Playoffs

Bayless is a well-known LeBron James hater, finding any angle possible to discredit LBJ's achievements wherever he can - even going as far as using Gordon Hayward's gruesome injury to do it - and Skip has predictably done it again after LeBron's terrific 57-point night against the Washington Wizards.

Wall is averaging 20.5 points and 10.4 assists per game. "I believe it's the Washington Wizards".

James, who is in his 15th National Basketball Association season, finished just four points shy of his career-high 61 set in 2014 against the Charlotte Bobcats. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams. The Wizards thought they would have a chance to play the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals last spring before falling to the Boston Celtics in seven games in the semifinals, and they are going through some bumps in the road early in 2017-18 as well.

On Friday, he scored 24 points and Cleveland shot 65.8 percent from the field in the first half for a 74-66 lead.

Blizzard teases vanilla servers with 'World of Warcraft Classic'
The World of Warcraft has recently expanded to include the Draenei homeworld of Argus, but we're heading back to Azeroth. Races aren't the only unique feature of Battle for Azeroth , though, as players will also discover uncharted islands.

Cavaliers: Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) missed his third game in a row, while Tristan Thompson (strained left calf) sat out for the first time in what could be a month's absence after getting injured in Wednesday's loss to Indiana.

James played like someone who took that slight to heart. In the first quarter alone Rose scored 9 points on 4-for-5 shooting and scored in a variety of ways. Last season, he became the youngest to reach 27,000, and then the youngest to reach 28,000. Otto Porter Jr. and Marcin Gortat added 15 points and five rebounds each.

Justin Holiday finished with 19 points and the Bulls outscored the Magic 29-15 in the third quarter to help Chicago turn a one-point halftime deficit into a 105-83 romp at Orlando. "I think his impact and the way he was coming kind of gave me a stinger".

Wizards: At the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, before returning to Washington for a four-game homestand. The Hawks entered Friday with the worst record in the Eastern Conference.
