Cavaliers to sign Dahntay Jones for playoffs

As the No.2 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Cavs will battle the No.7 ranked Indiana Pacers in a best-of-7 first-round series begninning Saturday night at the Q Arena.

"I wanted to smile, but I knew we had a long way to go in the game", Casey said. "We're aware of what's going on, and hopefully we can get the No. 1 seed". Love, who missed 30 days recovering from knee surgery, said he is ready to go after two hard practices. Now, the Cavaliers can certainly play good defense, as they proved in last year's Finals, but the past several games have cast a shadow of doubt on the defending champions. Jones has to sign with the team by then to be eligible for the playoffs. LeBron James and the Cavaliers is a different animal in the playoffs.

But, boy, have they been bad lately.

From holding out for his $57 million contract during the preseason to breaking his thumb and missing half of Cleveland's games, it's been a fairly miserable season for J.R. Smith. "They have carried the load all season".

Series schedule, fan fest info, watch parties and more. But the Cavs have work to do.

James has said he isn't concerned about the top seed, and teammate Kyle Korver said on Monday that the Cavs just want to get the postseason under way. "Honestly, we can't worry about anything that happened before or in last season's playoffs". You know how talented he is and know he's going to come out and lead his team. Brooklyn dropped to 20-62 on the season and finished with the worst record in the National Basketball Association and the fourth-most losses in franchise history. These games are going to be tough. As one of the best players in this era of the NBA, James has rarely allowed his teams to get soft in the first series of the postseason. "That's all you can ask for". It'd be a nice outcome - though the way the Cavs are playing, it may be worth it to take a shot at them as soon as possible before they reach peak playoff form.

Gorsuch sworn in as US Supreme Court justice
Last week, the Democratic leadership announced they had 41 votes to filibuster Gorsuch and urged Trump to " change the nominee ". The swearing in, performed by Justice Anthony Kennedy (for whom Gorsuch once clerked), was the second.

Having clinched the No. 5 spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a Tuesday night victory against Charlotte, Atlanta sat guard Kent Bazemore, guard Tim Hardaway, forward Paul Millsap and guard Dennis Schroder against Indiana.

"He brings some toughness and physicality, a little nasty, which we need at times", Lue said.

When the Cavaliers are at their best, there are very few teams in the National Basketball Association that can keep up.

"I've got the answer", he said. The Cavs host the No. 7-seed Indiana Pacers at 3 p.m. on Saturday. He scored 43 points in Cleveland's 135-130 double overtime win over the Pacers on April 2nd.

James and company have gone through rough patches in the past, yet despite all the controversies and drama, have made it to the finals in two consecutive years. But right now, we can't focus on them. Everybody has a clear understanding of what needs to be done and individually what they need to do.
