Cavs' JR Smith finds soup toss ban jokes 'pretty funny'

Nance was inserted in the lineup after Tristan Thompson sprained his ankle and is expected to be out a couple of games.

Green was ruled out of Saturday's loss to the Denver Nuggets and the Pistons game on Saturday afternoon after undergoing an MRI on his sore lower back that showed no structural damage. Hood will replace Cedi Osman in the starting five, which is a lineup change head coach Tyronn Lue said he'll be going with for "a while".

Drummond, the league's leading rebounder at 15.8 a game, didn't miss a shot all night - he was 5-for-5 from both the field and the line - but more often than not, Nance prevented him from even getting his hands on the ball.

On February 2nd, 2016, Curry signed a five-year, $47.5 million ($23 million guaranteed) contract extension with the Eagles, eschewing free agency after the team hired Jim Schwartz as defensive coordinator and implemented his preferred 4-3 scheme. The six-year-pro out of Texas is averaging 6 points and 6 1/2 rebounds for the Cavaliers in 42 games this season.

But it's been Nance, who grew up in the suburbs of Akron and spent 2 1/2 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers after playing his college basketball at Wyoming, who is making the biggest splash in the Cavs' rotation. He can prove to be a quality starter. And he shined insane bright, with career highs 22 points and 15 rebounds, shooting 9-of-15 from the field.Nance has been brilliant since he was traded to Cleveland by the Lakers on February 8.

NFL's Aldon Smith posts cryptic photo while being sought by police
San Francisco then released him in August 2015 following his fifth run-in with the law regarding another drunken driving arrest. Smith came into the league as a first-round pick out of the University of Missouri in 2011, drafted by the 49ers.

It is quite freaky to see Tristan Thompson missing so many games this season.

Smith was suspended one game by the Cavaliers, and Saturday the temperamental guard addressed the latest drama in what has been a tumultuous season for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions.

James was the focal point of the offense in the third, scoring 15 of his 31 points on the night.

Larry Nance Jr. gave the Cavs a needed lift and the crowd a jolt with a vicious second-quarter dunk.

And obviously, all of this moves have one main objective: convincing LeBron James to go on and end his career as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, putting together an extremely competitive squad to make yet another Championship run and prove him that they're actually capable of surrounding him with top-tier talent. However, he now has two weeks to make it impossible for Lue to consider moving him back to the bench.
