Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) drives the ball defended by Los Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris (34) during the third quarter at Staples Center.
Bender finished with seven points and five rebounds.
During their time as teammates, they were effective, and Jones became one of LeBron's go to snipers to pass for open three-point shots.
This isn't the first time James has mentioned the possibility of hanging around in the NBA if his son has the chance to play basketball at that level. And they've won four out of the last six over the Blazers - all in Cleveland, including a 127-110 win on January 2 in Isaiah Thomas' first game for the Cavs.
Nance had only four points, ending his career-best string of seven consecutive double-digit scoring games.
Coach Tyronn Lue admitted seeing Korver play like that as a starter made him think about using him long (er) term."Yeah it does", Lue said. "His ability to, not just share it, but how he delivers it", interim head coach Jay Triano said, referring to James' passing ability. They played without their top three scorers in a 122-115 loss at Charlotte on Saturday. But at one point in his career, roughly 13 years ago, he was made famous for something quite unfortunate. The future Hall of Famer even admitted, last year, that his son is on track to be a better shooter than him.
Marquese Chriss was called for a technical foul (No. 8) at the 1:36 mark of the first quarter.
There is no causal relationship between each blowout, really, but they're worth reliving just so everyone's on the lookout for something unusual when the two teams meet Thursday at 10 p.m. In addition to regaining comfort with shooting the ball and absorbing contact again, Love will also face the challenge of integrating with a Cavaliers roster that has changed dramatically since he suffered the hand injury.
