No one in the locker room after the game disagreed with Lue's assessment. This is not meant to be a slight against Isaiah Thomas as a person. I don't want to comment too much on it. I'm a little biased, but what else does he need to do?
Lue decided his starters took enough of a beating through 3 quarters and gave them the fourth off, even though they looked like they took the night off anyway. That fact is largely because of one player in LeBron James. Will this be the first year that James goes on the road for most of his playoff run? When you have an opportunity, you do your job and you do it to the highest of your ability and you live with those results. I bust my tail every day.
This year they haven't made a deal, and the trade deadline is Thursday.
Altman might have been able to trade forward/center Channing Frye as part of a package, but that option was eliminated when Kevin Love suffered a broken hand on January 30. Thomas is a shadow of himself.
Palestinian Authority Prepares for Blanket 'Disengagement' From Israel
Israel had been looking for the final member of the cell which it said killed Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting. The military said the suspect was not apprehended in the operation but seven people were detained for questioning.
"That's not a question for me". "I do my part".
"We're not together on both ends", he said.
3-Point Goals-Houston 19-51 (Paul 6-9, Anderson 5-9, G.Green 4-10, Tucker 2-6, Mbah a Moute 1-3, Harden 1-11, Brown 0-3), Cleveland 8-30 (Smith 3-9, Crowder 2-3, James 1-2, Korver 1-4, Rose 1-4, J.Green 0-1, Wade 0-1, Frye 0-2, Thomas 0-4).
With Anderson and Green each putting in a pair of 3-pointers and Paul sinking four 3s after a pair of games in which he went 0 for 4 from deep, the Rockets had little trouble rolling up points as expected against the 28th ranked defense in the National Basketball Association.
Congress to miss shutdown deadline as Senate goes into recess
The bipartisan compromise would provide the Pentagon and domestic programs with an extra $300 billion over the next two years. The first, conservative Republicans, worry the increased spending is fiscally irresponsible.
Houston's offensive barrage was actually much more tame than it could have been.
Thomas is struggling as he continues to recover from a hip injury 11 months ago. Cleveland had won 17 of its last 19 games at home, but the Rockets recorded at least 32 points in each of the opening three periods before turning to their reserves in the fourth.
The Rockets' greatest difficulty was choosing between tearing through the Cavs' defense to finish pick-and-cut attacks with dunks, or to move the ball to open 3-pointers.
During this current losing skid, Cleveland has lost eight games in a row on national television, which is a source of deep frustration for James - a guy who's used to playing his best when the lights shine brightest.
Evra completes West Ham move
Among other English clubs interested in the France worldwide are Everton but the player is said to be keen on a move to London. West Ham chairman David Sullivan gave the deal the green light despite insisting his days of signing older players were over.
Golden State - twice, Boston, Toronto, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Detroit and now Houston. And certainly I would go to him and 'Listen, this is why we're going to do that.' Just as I did with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. LeBron James discussed Cleveland's poor performance on national television, something that makes this season's winter doldrums standout from the rest.
