Raptors hand Cavaliers second straight blowout loss — Embarrassing encore

The second round of All-Star voting was released yesterday, with Kyrie Irving (1,370,643) the leader by a substantial margin among Eastern Conference guards, and third in the conference overall behind LeBron James and Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo. They tried to force the ball through tiny spaces, took a number of highly-contested shots, and let the 76ers, especially Simmons and J.J. Redick, get what they wanted. Both teams have playoff aspirations thanks to their marquee players, yet a surprisingly unheralded name threatened to steal the headlines when the game got underway. Cleveland trailed by as many as 41 points on Monday in a 127-99 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Sixers grew more and more frustrated, Simmons resorting to lowering a shoulder into Marcus Smart in the fourth quarter, an incident that led to much pushing and shoving as another team fell to Boston's perfect blend of aggression and intelligence.

The Philadelphia Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tennessee Titans will take on the Los Angeles Chargers. Griffin added an 18-point, 12-rebound double-double.

When the 21-year-old wing spun around to blow a kiss at the Philadelphia 76ers bench, he had just knocked down a 3-pointer to bring his team within 18 points. The three former WNBA stars were eligible for the first time this year. They now average a combined 28.1 points per game, and both players are shooting at least 46.5 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from 3-point range.

"He'll be fine", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

The Celtics ended up representing well in London, but there are still some clear problems that need to be addressed. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne is also entering the draft, and wide receiver Calvin Ridley already had announced his departure.

Boston holds their spot at number one in the east, while Philadelphia gets ready for Toronto.

Defense has been a calling card for the Boston Celtics this year, and their effectiveness hasn't slipped against the league's most potent offenses.

Guard Derrick Rose who has been out since Nov. 7 with an ankle injury, will not play tonight at Indiana. The people spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday night because the deal is pending a physical and no announcement had been made. Meanwhile, down the hall of The O2 Arena, Tatum, in fewer words, echoed similar thoughts to the media during his postgame comments.

Joel Embiid felt like he was destined to struggle from the outset in the Philadelphia 76ers' 114-103 defeat to the Boston Celtics in London on Thursday.

CAVALIERS: Thomas is expected to rest when Cleveland concludes a back-to-back by visiting Indiana tonight.

LONDON — Ten seasons ago, the Celtics came across the Atlantic and won.

RAPTORS: Host Golden State on Saturday. "I'm happy he's here, but I'm more happy that he's coming to the TD Garden".
