CLEVELAND -- Coach Tyronn Lue relented and the Cleveland Cavaliers will trot out a new starting lineup Friday against the Indiana Pacers. The Cavs are reeling, losing two straight and 11 of the last 15 games. They are the league's second-worst defensive team -- the worst in the past 15 games -- and have struggled tremendously to make virtually anything work with Isaiah Thomas on the court. But Thomas isn't the change. Lue will start Tristan Thompson at center and slide Kevin Love back to power forward. It means Jae Crowder goes to the bench. Lue has resisted making lineup and rotation changes while the Cavs are in a rut. "Jae has been playing good the last few games and it has nothing to do with.The Golden State forward found out he*s going to play alongside LeBron James and against Warriors teammate Stephen Curry in next month*s NBA All-Star Game after apparently being the first pick in the All-Star draft.

Stephen Curry picked James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo, the NBA's top two scorers, and grabbed his other two Golden State teammates in the selections Thursday. The draft was not televised, and neither James nor Curry would reveal who they chose first when they were interviewed on TNT when the rosters were unveiled.

For a team that is tight against the cap, that money could go toward other important matters, like re-signing free agent-to-be LB Nigel Bradham, or helping get a contract extension done with players whose contracts are set to expire after the 2018 season, like DE Brandon Graham, LB Jordan Hicks, CB Ronald Darby, or RB Jay Ajayi.

"A little bit better rhythm within our offense, passing the ball, we had it moving a little better. Guys were able to knock down shots and just play unselfish basketball."The Jazz (20-28) are 6-19 on the road after they rallied to defeat the Detroit Pistons 98-95 in overtime on Wednesday to go 4-6 in their past 10. The Jazz were coming off a loss to the Hawks on Monday."We were down late and were able to string together some stops," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game on Wednesday. "It's good to win. We missed a few layups and some open shots, but we made them when we needed to."The Raptors already have a win over the Jazz, a 109-100 verdict on Nov. 3 in Salt Lake City, and are going for a season sweep of Utah for the fourth time in the past five seasons.As the Raptors press to gain home-court advantage through the conference finals, coach Dwane Casey still has concerns, particularly with the way the team has performed late in close games."Where we're having an issue is at the end of games," Casey told the Toronto Sun. "We've changed dramatically from being one of the top offensive teams in the league to bottom five in the league in the last five minutes."In games in which the difference in the score is five points or fewer with five minutes or fewer remaining, the Raptors have gone from sixth and 10th in field-goal percentage and points-per-game during clutch time last season to 21st and 17th in those categories this season."A lot of that is. ... disorganization between what we're doing as far as moving the ball, ball movement, playing to our triggers, and that's what we've got to get back to," Casey said. "We kind of fell back from that, some of it is personnel-driven, different personnel in the game (at) the end of the game, whether it's a defensive unit that we have in, so we have to get that organized as a staff to make sure guys understand what we're doing last five minutes of the game."We have to continue to play in our triggers and not go into so-called 'called' plays the last five minutes of the game.""Last year, we always reverted to going to a lot of isolation every time down," Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said. "This time around, we are still getting a feel for trying to move the ball, trying to put the isolation game in and trying to figure it out. There are so many elements that we are still trying to figure out rather than going with what works or whatever has been working throughout the game and carrying it over to that moment."Meanwhile, there have been reports of tension with the Jazz as trade rumors abound and the team has struggled since posting a 13-11 record after winning their sixth straight game on Dec. 4. Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles suggests that the reports are exaggerated."The end of the day it's really only us and the coaching staff and the guys in the locker room that knows what's going on," Ingles told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Everyone else just assumes and makes assumptions or does what they have to do. I love how we've stuck together.""We have a bunch of guys who want to get better and want to be better, that's been our biggest thing," Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell said. "When you have guys like Joe who defend our locker room and our team, it's just leaders like that who keep guys together.". But it matters only so much what blame levied by LeBron is fair. He can become a free agent next summer, and in many ways, his perception matters more than reality. If he were upset with the Cavs defying his request not to trade Irving, why would he be any less upset with the team now that he*s seen how it*s playing out?.The Air Jordan line is a yearly set of sneakers originally serving as the signature model for Michael Jordan..The adidas Futurecraft 4D sees its first release today exclusively at three stores in the NYC area.

    • The conventional wisdom is that group includes Southern Cal*s Sam Darnold, UCLA*s Josh Rosen, Wyoming*s Josh Allen and Oklahoma*s Baker Mayfield, though Dorsey mentioning a fifth could bring in a player such as Louisville*s Lamar Jackson or Oklahoma State*s Mason Rudolph into the mix.

  • Staying in the NL would make sense for both if they want to reestablish some more value.

  • The Detroit Tigers have one of baseball*s most iconic uniforms. Any changes they*d make 〞 aside from MLB*s holiday uniforms 〞 would be minimal at most. But as we learned Thursday, even slight changes are too much for some Tigers fans.The Tigers announced a tweak to their uniforms for 2018: They*re making the Olde English D on their uniforms and cap match, because they hadn*t in the past. They*re taking inspiration from the team*s 1904 and 1905 uniforms for the new D. Have a look at these before and afters.
    The Jumpman is no stranger to V-Day releases, as we have seen the brand put out an Air Jordan 5 and an Air Jordan 12 for Cupid*s favorite holiday in the past. While this pair is indeed a women*s exclusive selection, it is dropping in extended sizes, which gives some men a better chance at securing a pair in their size. No specific release date has been scheduled, but expect this premium 8 to drop before the big day on the 14th."We did some good things, though we were able to cut the lead to six and five, but we couldn't get over that hump."

  • Jordan Brand has officially unveiled its first collaboration of 2018, one that pairs two American giants of apparel for an incredible two-piece collection. Included in this set is the Air Jordan 4 Retro built with Levi*s denim, gum bottoms, and Levi*s red tab branding for that signature look, while the classic Trucker Jacket is treated with a nylon ※flight suit§ interior for a fully reversible stance. Perhaps the most impressive detail is the tan ※Two Horses§ patch, which has been modified to include the Jumpman logo for a true one-of-one feel. The Levi*s x Air Jordan 4 and Trucker Jacket will release on January 17th at select retailers worldwide. See below for an official store list.

  • Sean McDowell, the designer of the Air Max Plus from 1998, was inspired by a breathtaking ocean sunset 每 one that faded from a light sky blue to a darker tone at dusk. Since then, the Air Max Plus has become recognizable for its tone-to-tone gradient, making for some of the most attractive colors in the history of the brand. For the upcoming Air Vapormax Plus, Nike is keeping the color gradient look with the debut releases coming on January 25th. This edition expands on the original colorway of the Air Max Plus, bringing in the dark red shades of the sunset onto the upper. Expect these next week for 0.嚗

  • The Nike Air Max 270 was designed as a modernized blend of the Air Max 93 and the Air 180 每 two icons of the early 1990s that debuted new styles of Air Max heel units. Boasting the tallest Air bag in brand history, the Air Max 270 has sneakerheads excited thanks to its sleek design and inspiring colorways, but it looks like there will be another style from the 270 category coming in early March. This alternate model features the same cushioning unit and engineered mesh materials, but with an upper with far more Air 180 DNA; this is evident in the classic ※180§ logo on the tongue, the Nike Air on the heel, and the overlay that mimics the original model from 1991. What are your thoughts on this new design? Stay tuned for release dates as we near Air Max Day on March 26th.Timberland*s resurgent 6∪ Field Boot continues to be one of the brand*s go-to options for keeping feet protected in all types of terrains. Already known for its versatility, the 6∪ Field Boot is dropping soon in a new ※Crocadylian§ colorway that blends the rugged styling with some more luxurious details in the exotic dark green croc-skin upper, metallic eyelets, and black leather ankle pads. Of course the shoes are entirely waterproof, so these are actually suitable in any setting. See the detailed images of the Timberland 6∪ Field Boot ※Crocadylian§ below and stay tuned for the official release on Timberland.com on January 19th.
