LeBron James gets animated with team during timeout

The Cleveland Cavaliers got dusted by the Toronto Raptors on Thursday, losing 133-99. Three-pointers continued to be the difference, with Toronto going 8 of 15 from beyond the arc and Cleveland making 2-of-8 attempts. James scored 26 points in this loss while Isaiah Thomas missed his first 11 shots. But the Cavaliers lacked the defensive pressure and fortitude against a team without two of its starters - point guard Kyle Lowry and forward Serge Ibaka - and had minimal energy off the bench. Kevin Love followed up his 1-for-7 night in the Cavs' loss to Minnesota on Monday with a 2-for-8 night against Toronto for 10 points.

Offensively, the Cavs shot 38 percent from the field, got nearly no production from their starting backcourt and canned just six three-pointers, half their season average.

Centre Jonas Valanciunas was dominant in the paint, earning a double-double with 15 points and 18 rebounds as Toronto spread the floor. He finished with four points and registered a minus-20.

Turning Point - When the turning point of a loss is late in the first quarter, that's never a good sign.

Thomas has made a successful return from a serious hip surgery, but is still finding his offensive rhythm, shooting 5-of-26 from the field over his past two games.

It is clear that Thomas won't play both halves of back-to-backs, but there was some confusion over which game he would sit out.

Malaysia To Resume Search For Flight MH 370
There have been competing theories that the aircraft suffered mechanical failure or was intentionally flown off course. It has 65 crew, including two government representatives drawn from the Malaysian navy.

This Raptors game - a nationally televised affair against a playoff foe from the previous two seasons - would typically be the type of game the Dr. Jekyll Cavs would show up for.

By the Numbers - .833, .807 ... While their last loss was pretty bad (127-99 at the hands of the Timberwolves), this one was their most lopsided of the season.

Quotable - LeBron James, on the Wine & Gold's recent woes ... "And it's tough when he's not out there but we got to figure it out".

"We're just in a funk. We will get out of it and we will get better". But it's so fragile.

"I don't know where it kind of went wrong or what happened, but we have to have to try to pick it back up and find it". "But he's moving around, moving much better than he was the other day".

Up Next - The Cavaliers - who've played seven of their last eight games on the road dating back to their Christmas Day meeting against Golden State - don't get much of a break in the finale of their current five-game roadie, squaring off for a Friday night meeting in IN, where they've dropped 13 of their last 15 regular season contests.
