Strug­gling Cavs

Cavs lose to Rap­tors in 133-99 rout

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP SPORTS -

TORONTO — LeBron James isn't en­joy­ing the view lately, watch­ing the end of blowout losses from the Cleve­land Cava­liers' bench.

James and his strug­gling Cava­liers ab­sorbed their most-lop­sided rout of the sea­son, over­whelmed by the Toronto Rap­tors 133-99 on Thurs­day night.

The Cava­liers have dropped six of eight dat­ing to a Christ­mas Day de­feat at de­fend­ing cham­pion Golden State. James scored 26 points in this loss while Isa­iah Thomas missed his first 11 shots.

"I don't know where it kind of went wrong or what hap­pened," James said. "We've got to try to pick it back up and find it."

Af­ter los­ing to Min­nesota 127-99 on Mon­day, the Cava­liers fell by an even big­ger mar­gin. Toronto's 133 points were the most by any Cava­liers op­po­nent this sea­son, and marked the third straight game that Cleve­land has al­lowed at least 127.

So, what has been James' big­gest beef with Cleve­land's last two losses?

"That I haven't played in the fourth quar­ter," he said, adding his team is get­ting "tore up."AP
