Larry Nance Jr. to wear father's No. 22 for Cavaliers

Larry Nance Jr. to wear father's No. 22 for Cavaliers

After a highly competitive first half, the Wizards almost blew a late 11-point lead when LeBron James scored 14 consecutive points to pull Cleveland within 106-103.

James almost had another triple-double scoring 32 points, grabbing nine rebounds, and dishing out eight assists.

He became the seventh player in National Basketball Association history with 11,000 career baskets, scoring Cleveland's last 14 points in defeat. "I think we still got to be smart about the situation, but [the training staff] say he feels good". James received little-to-no help in the final period, as he was the only Cavs player to score in the final 9:40 of action and was ultimately responsible for the team's final 14 points. After that, Beal made a clutch layup to seal the victory for the Wizards.

But the Cavaliers went cold from there, with Washington rolling off nine-straight points over the next three minutes to take an eight-point edge midway through the fourth.

3-point shooting - The Cavs were ice-cold from 3-point range against the Wizards, going just 8-of-35. "We've got a lot of things to work on. we still played our game, we just didn't make a lot of shots".

If the All-Star break slowed the Cavs, it seemed to have energized the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, who held off the determined Los Angeles Clippers 134-127 in Oakland. He pointed to Thursday being their third game together and said it's up to him to know which players get over and through screens and which need more help. It was the teams' first game back since the NBA All-Star break.

Brooklyn Nets forward DeMarre Carroll hit only two of 12 shots from the field (0 for five from three-point territory) and finished with six points in a 111-96 loss to the Charlotte Hornets. "We've just got to keep doing it". "But I like our competitive spirit".

It was tied at 107-107 with one second left, but after a timeout Westbrook nailed the game-winner over Sacramento's Garrett Temple. One of those games, like I said, sorry for the fans who had to go through that, because they come to see LeBron, Kevin [and Kyrie].

"They're actually looking at a house right now", he said. "I can't be thinking I'm going to miss them".

According to a lengthy feature by ESPN's Dave McMenamin that was published on Thursday, James questioned the Cleveland Cavaliers general manager's absence from a team road trip that spanned from late December to early January.
