George Hill on LeBron

George Hill on LeBron

All four of the team's trade deadline acquisitions are expected to make their debut, as reports have stated that coach Tyronn Lue will start George Hill at point guard, JR Smith at shooting guard, LeBron James and Cedi Osman in the forward spots and Tristan Thompson at center. Or would it be another disappointing day? The Valentine's Day tilt will be the Celtics' final game before the NBA All-Star break in LA. Both teams shot over 50 percent from the floor and made it look like this could turn into a shootout.

Asked about the team's renewed spirit, Lue clarified it was because of losing, not the players traded. Clarkson chipped in with 17 points, three rebounds, and two steals of his own, with Nance recording five points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal, giving the Cavs a lot of energy and hustle. That came after weeks of uninspiring play by the Cavs and locker room dysfunction, but Cleveland hopes the deals they made on Thursday will right the ship. "We've had games where we've led in the first half".

Just like that, the Cavs traded almost half their roster, got younger and maybe put themselves back into contention to make a fourth straight Finals appearance.

Cleveland's offense was a dynamo Sunday, operating primarily out of the pick-and-roll and hunting mismatches with the Celtics.

Today, we're going to let you know about the top 4 buyout candidates the Cavs should target considering their current needs. When the third quarter mercifully came to an end, it was down to 21 points, 95-74.

Zach Randolph is yet another veteran that chose to end his Memphis Grizzlies stint, and he hasn't done much with the Sacramento Kings as the team isn't providing much playing time for veterans while they look to develop their youngsters.

All things considered, the team they were facing, being on the road and the short time frame they have to get it together, this was Cleveland's best win of the season.

As the trade deadline approached, Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson were traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James had been increasingly upset about the Cavs' roster inadequacies in his quest to bring a second championship to Cleveland and the chances seemed greater in recent days that James would opt out of his contract in July and sign elsewhere. "They played hard, and they competed, and it was just good to see the team smiling again and having fun". "And word to everybody, don't go 0 for 6 or they're going to trade you're (expletive)".

"It was a good start".

"It's nearly like the new guys have been here", James said after the game. He can also rebound which is something the Celtics don't necessarily struggle at but adding Monroe to the team helps with this to make them even better than they already were.

Following the game, the Celtics held a ceremony to retire Pierce's number. But the loss didn't stop fans from showering Pierce with "Thank you Paul Pierce" chants anyway.
