Isaiah Thomas: Cavs Wilt Under Adversity

Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Trade Rumors: Cavs Still Not Giving Up on Potential George Hill Trade Lebron James Nixes Plan to Finish Career in Cleveland.
Ivan Hill | 08 February, 2018, 12:20

Numerous comments were derisive and referenced Thomas' reported role in the Cavs' explosive team meeting several weeks ago, when the seven-year veteran called out forward Kevin Love for leaving a game early because of an illness. After the game, Cavs point guard Isaiah Thomas was vocal with his criticism of the team, saying, "when adversity hits, we go our separate ways".

But, what exactly does he mean?

With the game tied up at 138 in an overtime thriller, James made the two biggest plays of the game consecutively to beat the Timberwolves and end the Cavaliers' two-game losing streak.

Of course, Thomas hasn't been himself since returning to full-time action.

Thomas hasn't been afraid to voice his opinion about his new team, which leaves some wondering whether the Cavaliers might try to move him before the trade deadline Thursday afternoon. The Cavaliers have plenty of work to do, and at this point, it's probably safe to say Thomas won't be part of the equation. They're going to make adjustments. There's no way around that.

Frasier actor John Mahoney dies at 77
The Coen Brothers chose Mahoney for the role of WP Mayhew in Barton Fink (1992) because of his resemblance to William Faulkner . After a brief stint in the United States army, Mahoney became an English teacher, and later the editor of a medical journal.


"We got to do better", Thomas said after the loss to the Magic. The Cavs and Wolves combined for 40 3-pointers (21 for the Cavs, 19 for the Wolves) in the game.

"Just taking some time to get ourselves jelling as far as offensively", Lue said, "with IT being out for so long, and then having to come back and, you know, having to play well, the pressure to play well, when he's really not 100 percent yet as far as getting his legs and conditioning-wise".

James is now the third player in history to hold a franchise record in points, rebounds and assists joining Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls and Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

They can't lose forever, right?
