Before Paul Pierce's retirement ceremony, the new-look Cavs showed that they are the favorite once again. To help make a push for their fourth straight National Basketball Association finals, Cleveland traded away six players and acquired four at the deadline.
"It's interesting, really interesting", Warriors forward Draymond Green said of Cleveland's drastic midseason renovation. We could imagine that in Cleveland it will get better over time.
In Nance's final two years, Revere had a 40-6 overall record, 28-0 mark in league games and was a two-time District finalist.
The Celtics have lost three of four while the Cavaliers have won three straight.
Hopefully, for James' sake, things will work out better this time around. It's how it's suppose to be. "He's a guy that can make the 15-foot jumper if you lay off of him". With the moves they made, LeBron and the Cavs are the favorite in the East.More news: Sport an afterthought as Unified women's team takes the ice
As you can see below, the Detroit Pistons (+1000) now have the fifth-odds along with the Philadelphia 76ers to land James, behind only the Houston Rockets (+250), Cleveland Cavaliers (+275), Los Angeles Lakers (+500), and Golden State Warriors (+600). He added three rebounds and two blocks.
"We don't have a lot of time", Lue said before the game.
James also had high hopes regarding his new team-mates.
ESPN was first to report the dizzying run of deals.
The trades mooted a mini controversy over whether the Celtics would honor Isaiah Thomas in his return to Boston.
"I've gotta say", Bryant declared, "you made all the Celtics legends proud". "That's not a good thing". I like it here. "I definitely wish all six guys. the best".More news: Dutchman claims third straight gold
The Cavaliers needed to do something rash while in a prolonged slump and with All-Star forward Kevin Love out with a broken left hand. "To try to get on a page where we feel like we're confident enough to win a playoff game". The Cavs' odds are twice as good as the No.1 seed Boston Celtics' odds.
Cleveland is just 7-13 since Christmas Day, and the club's slide has coincided with Thomas' comeback.
"The kid was in borderline tears when I called him today".
While Thomas struggled on the floor, he didn't help himself with some peculiar off-the-court comments. I think it's going to be great for him.
"If he makes like this, he's OK", Lue joked after the game.More news: Gigi Hadid slams body shamers
