New Cavalier Edy Tavares blocks six shots against the Raptors

New Cavalier Edy Tavares blocks six shots against the Raptors

"We have a good chance to win it all", James said Thursday. Houston was hit with some injuries through the latter part of the season, but the Rockets will have their full rotation available to open the playoffs. Then there's Tavares. Having played just 12 games in the National Basketball Association (11 in 2015-16 and one in 2016-17, all with the Hawks), the 7-foot-3 rim protector seems like a pure project. Jones was with the Cavs during the 2016 post-season, and the 12-year veteran provided toughness, experience and quality minutes in the Finals. The Cavs signed him on April 13, 2016, in almost identical circumstances to this year. Tavares was a second-round pick of the Atlanta Hawks in 2014, but played in only 12 games for them over the past two seasons before being waived. Jones was most likely brought on to be a leader and positive voice in the locker room, but on a team that is trying to win back-to-back championships, do they really need another leader, rather than some young, energetic player like Liggins. The Cavs are just 16-14 against the western conference this season as a whole, and have not won a single road game against the west all season. Once his opponent and the game date and time were set, he went to house and pulled the all nighter.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said earlier this week that ensuring his squad's key players were fully fit for the postseason was more important than securing the number one ranking.

Last year, the Cavaliers went 7-0 at home through the first three rounds of the playoffs, and 2-1 against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers will now face the Indiana Pacers in the first-round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

"We just thought these two guys were what we needed going into the playoffs to potentially help us", Lue said. Cleveland took Toronto down in six games in last year's Eastern Conference finals.

Justin Trudeau, Prime minister of Canada, is anxious about Trump's protectionist talk as for him relationship with U.S.is crucial. The President echoed that sentiment Thursday: "We can't let Canada or anyone else take advantage of our workers or our farmers".

George leads the Pacers in scoring averaging 23.7 points a game while shooting 46 percent from the field. He did not play in Game 7.

"What's insane is that this season seemed like it went by faster than the one a year ago", Lue said. We're more talented than we were at this time a year ago.

Jones was popular with his teammates, who mobbed him when they received their championship rings before the season even though he was no longer on Cleveland's roster. But George has not only bounced back, the star forward said he's been aiming for a shot at the champions.

"I'm ecstatic to be here, my first time to watch the Cavaliers". "He worked incredibly hard. When I get my opportunity, I'm going to try to make an impression and make it last". He said he stayed in shape by playing about three games a week hoping this opportunity would arrive.
