LeBron James Believes The Cavs Are 'In A Funk' After Another Blowout Loss

Isaiah Thomas

"Luckily, he stepped out of bounds".

With the Cavaliers down a point with under five seconds left, LeBron James's foot goes out as he charges to the rim.

"We come out with low energy in the fourth quarter", he said, via the Associated Press. Asked by The Buffalo News' Jerry Sullivan about the Cavs' three recent poor defensive showings, James said, "If we put you in the lineup, we'd probably give up even more, because you look like you couldn't guard anybody". After initially saying that he did not step out, James took to Twitter after the game to say that upon reviewing the video the referee got the call right. That turned the ball back over to IN, which split a pair of free throws with 1.4 seconds remaining.

Thompson, who is due $36 million over the next two seasons, is now averaging just 5.3 points and 5.7 rebounds in 19 minutes of action per game.

While murky in its meaning, Lue's "agenda" comment may light a fire under some Cavs' players.

Cleveland is looking at making a big move and has placed one of their key stars on the trade block in hopes of getting something to improve their team for the second half of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

play0:29LeBron misses at the buzzer. The Magic hit 51.3 percent of their attempts from the floor after a 6-for-22 fourth quarter.

play1:24Stephenson gets in LeBron's face. Golden State got 26 points from Kevin Durant in winning its 11th straight on the road to go 18-3 away from home overall.

"I said it before the season: There's gonna be ups and downs, there's going to be reverting back to doing a bit too much individually".

"Lance is just a little dirty, that's all". "I don't know if it was fatigue, but we took ourselves out of it". I've known since school that it's not the guy who tells the joke who gets caught, it's the guy who laughs. "Just playing against the best player in the league, trying to win against them". James led the way with 26 points but only had one assist.

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, "multiple teams have cited" Thompson as a player Cleveland is willing to move.

James also was baited into a technical foul by Stephenson with 7:53 left in the game. Friday's funk was better than it has been lately, however.

Darren Collison scored 22 points and Victor Oladipo added 19 as the Indiana Pacers held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 97-95 on Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

play1:26Cavs score 20 unanswered points. The 34-point loss to the Raptors follows a 127-99 defeat at Minnesota on Monday.

Orlando has lost seven in a row, 16 of 17 and 27 of its last 31.

IN outscored Cleveland 32-16 in the third quarter to erase a 14-point halftime deficit and take a 76-74 lead after three quarters.

But at least they competed.
