Cavs forward Kyle Korver out again with foot injury

Or so a lot of people thought. Will San Antonio cover as a home favorite?
The Cavaliers brought in Bogut to help and he would've been a tremendous help to have on defense had he never gotten hurt. They are entering this game in a virtual tie with the Celtics for the coveted #1 seed and at this point, event he #8 seeded Miami Heat have to be considered a challenge for an up and down Cavalier team. If you were rooting for a Cavs vs Warriors Finals for the third straight year, you should be a tad bit anxious. This team overall looks bad on offense and defense. Cleveland is ranked #3 in offensive rating and #4 in points per game.
He stayed there for several scary minutes before making his way to the bench and, with the Cavs trailing 58-81 going into the fouth quarter, did not return to the court. But in numerous games, it's Danny who is the one guarding the best opponent or playing key defensive roles and being able to switch because of his size and reaction times. The Wizards won the game 127-115. It's frustrating right now, but we are a veteran ball club and we will work through this and get things together.
"We don't really think about the Cavs or the No. 1 seed", said Crowder.
The victory was the second straight for the Kings, both over playoff-bound teams.
The idle Boston Celtics sit on top of the Eastern Conference with a 48-26 record and a.649 winning percentage.
Lue dropped the hint before the Cavs were torched 103-74 by the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night, and then confirmed he was thinking about it afterwards. The first of these two meetings is this Wednesday at the Alamodome.
After the game, James told ESPN.com that it was a bad time for the Cavaliers to meet up with a team like the Spurs. This game against Cleveland tonight is certainly a marquee matchup for the league.
Next up for the Spurs after Monday's game: vs.
What Cleveland is seeking, the Spurs have already found. They had the best record, although their competitors were within arms reach. The past two years, the Cavaliers scared us midseason, only for them to climb out of it in the postseason. He's also had speed and the ability to finish inside but by adding a three-point shot, he's made himself a threat to score from anywhere on the court.
James, who finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in 29 minutes, said he will play Thursday night at Chicago.
The Spurs do not need to make a statement in tonight's game. Not only have the Cavs played worse than they did past year, even after strengthening their roster, but the team seems to have no compass. The Cavaliers are coming off a 127-119 loss at home to the Washington Wizards on Saturday. A cold shooting night can reveal weaknesses, though.
Elfrid Payton had 22 points and nine assists for Orlando (27-47). James needs 24 points to pass Shaquille O'Neal for seventh overall in career scoring. It's going to be a game-to-game basis just seeing how guys feel. Meanwhile, the Spurs are peeking ahead to the Golden State game on Wednesday.
Green also had two steals.
I like the Cavs and the points. Kevin Durant or not, the Warriors have been pretty good lately and will be a decent test for SA as the regular season winds down.
