The Cavaliers are not really healed. On Thursday, LeBron James and his partners were slightly reassured with difficulty from the red lantern in the East Orlando (104-103). A successful narrow that allowed Cleveland to stop a series of four consecutive defeats (against Minnesota, Toronto, Indiana and Golden State).
But the Cavs have relapsed in spectacular fashion this Saturday. The third in the eastern conference have been up on their floors by Oklahoma City (148-124), giving the impression of not giving everything. At the end of the first quarter, the Thunder had widened the gap (43-24). And OKC has subsequently not been disturbed. The trio of Oklahoma City has made the difference. Paul George has been impressive (36 points, 7 rebounds). Carmelo Anthony (29 points, 10 rebounds) and Russell Westbrook (23 points, 9 rebounds, 20 assists) have not been put to rest.
on The side of Cleveland, only Isaiah Thomas has shown with 24 points and 4 assists. LeBron James was limited to 18 points and is seven units of the symbolic figure of 30 000 points scored. A bar that it is expected to exceed the next week against San Antonio.
