Cavs' Isaiah Thomas fined $20K for flagrant foul on Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins

Cavs' Isaiah Thomas fined $20K for flagrant foul on Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins

The Cavaliers had lost three in a row and it was reported that the focus of a pre-practice video review was defence - or the lack thereof - with Lue showing about 80 clips of Cleveland's mistakes during that slump.

To complete the history lesson, the Cavs learned from last year's film session and beat the Raptors in Toronto on December 5.

Thomas will enter Thursday's marquee matchup against the Toronto Raptors with $20,000 less than what he had, but he will be the starting point guard for Cleveland. Lue said Rose, who previously told reporters there was "a chance" he'd play on the Cavs' current five-game road trip, will not play against either Toronto or IN to end the trip.

It wasn't what they saw on video that spoke to the players as much as what was missing. "From top to bottom, just play harder. we're anxious about other things other than playing hard". "I'm slowly. the only time I can get my rhythm or try to get it is during games, we don't practice. We've just got to play harder".

The #Cleveland Cavaliers have been sliding recently, losing the last six out of nine games, and they hit a new low against the Minnesota Timberwolves Monday night. This time, Lue didn't need to point out the problem, Thomas said. I mean when guys seen it on film today, it was like, it was obvious. "[Lue] doesn't even have to say anything". "Film doesn't lie. We've got to be more physical". Now, it is certainly right to question whether a team who has been a successful offense that needs help on the defensive end of the court should sign Thomas, who is soon to be a 30-year-old point guard who now has a surgically repaired hip.

Eight other states have enacted laws legalizing and regulating marijuana for adult use, all through ballot initiatives. Despite vetoing a similar effort a year ago , Governor Smith has stated he would likely sign this renewed effort.

"I think when we do that, we're a tough team to beat, no matter who we're playing". It's tough when you're getting the shots you want and they're just not falling.

In-season lulls are not foreign to the Cavaliers, who, despite tough stretches over the past three years, have reached back to back-to-back National Basketball Association finals.

Isaiah Thomas just made his Cleveland Cavaliers debut. Wiggins lead the team in scoring with 25 points while Wolves Big Man Karl Anthony-Towns posted a double-double with 19 points and 12 boards.

"I just couldn't make nothing", Thomas said. I think if we do that then that will be half the battle.
