LeBron James: Playing 82 Games 'Has Never Been My Plan'

Here’s a tip don’t bet it all on Joel Embiid and the Sixers

Point guard Jose Calderon has been playing a lot more minutes in recent weeks and scored 19 against the Raptors. They took on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday as they played at the Quicken Loans Arena which has never been a favourite hunting group for the Raptors.

In Cleveland, however, the 2016 NBA champion Cavs signalled they will be a threat for any team in the postseason as they attempt to reach the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row.

As to James' "plan", well, he has said at least twice over the last three seasons that he wants or intends to play all 82 games. Dropped to 3-5 since winning 11 straight from February 26-March 16.

It gets even more complicated when you think about the first round matchups, especially for a Celtics team that is going to be missing Marcus Smart and Kyrie Irving for the first round.

"It's vital that we get back on a good roll and go into the playoffs with some type of momentum", Morris said. It is unfortunate that the Celtics have to do it on a back to back, and they desperately need Terry Rozier to bring his energy back to the lineup.

The Cavaliers still aren't at full strength.

The stock has actually grown in the past week, as the company has gathered a 1.81% return in the past 5 trading days. Investors may be watching for the earnings expectations in coming days; how much it could deliver earnings ability.

Cleveland's ball movement was excellent in the second quarter and so was its accuracy.

The idea is to have DeRozan and Lowry rested to play super-sized minutes in the playoffs - where they've been knocked out by the Cavs each of the last two seasons.

So naturally, he would go to San Antonio to see them knock off the Michigan Wolverines in the NCAA title game. He refused to blame his performance on his social activities.

"They've forced me to pay attention to them by the way they got out of the gates and the way they sustained (it)", Burke told Postmedia in a telephone interview ahead of Wednesday's huge game against the Boston Celtics. "I'm still a professional", said Lowry, who is 6 of 24 in his past two games.

Josh Jackson scored 18 of his 28 points in the first half before the Suns completed a 97-94 win over the Kings to end a team-record, 15-game losing streak. "Sometimes, it's weird how they did those rotations, but I've just got to take those shots".

James, meanwhile, was his masterful self, despite not dominating the game as he did in a masterful 35-point, 17- assist game the last time the teams met. He was excused to be with family following the death of his 27-year-old brother and had been slowed by a sore right foot. Lose their third consecutive game, and the door stays open for Boston to grab it for the second straight season. No one had done that since the National Basketball Association started keeping track of turnovers in 1977-78.

"I still say we're only scratching the surface, I really do", Drew said after the win over Toronto, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Eric Bledsoe had 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting for Milwaukee which needs one more win or a Detroit loss to clinch a playoff berth.

But whatever they've been doing lately, and whoever they are, it's working.
