Tyronn Lue unveils new Cleveland Cavaliers' starting lineup after trade deadline deals

Lue's postgame comments in their totality were tempered. Hood should be able to play heavy minutes at the two guard while helping LeBron James shoulder the scoring burden. Yet for all they've been through since the season started going downhill on December 19 with a loss in Milwaukee, the Cavaliers, 34-22, began the day only six games behind first-place Toronto in the NBA East.

"They're long and athletic". Fans would have been much less quick to side with Dan Gilbert in the ensuing Comic Sans flame war, which we might still get. We've all had the coworker who was an expert at appearing busy and essential while accomplishing next to nothing. Kyrie (Irving) is so good 1-on-1.

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. "He's a veteran so he can understand the flow of the game and then once we get our plays down and defensively what we want to do, then you could see a lineup change".

Cleveland's remake was staggering.

George scored 16 points in the quarter, and the Thunder finished the period with a 22-6 run in the last six-plus minutes. He'll need something closer to the 21-point performance he came up with in his first meeting with Memphis.

The Cavs began their shocking overhaul by sending Thomas, the guard who was disappointing with Cleveland, along with forward Channing Frye and one of their two first-round picks to the Los Angeles Lakers for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. Most importantly, the Cavaliers did not jeopardize their future at the trade deadline.

The Celtics aren't quite sure what to expect, but they know whatever it is won't be easy.

I didn't know it was possible.

"At the end of the day, I just want to be around guys who work hard", he said, per Rachel Nichols of ESPN.

"I think he and his representation were very, very appreciative of that", Altman said. Those guys were flying around. "That's not a good thing", Thomas said Wednesday.

They were also part of a three-team trade with the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings to acquire Rodney Hood and George Hill while trading away Iman Shumpert, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, and a 2020 second-round pick in return. None of the new acquisitions were in uniform against the Hawks, but James and Korver were more than enough.

Cleveland jettisoned out at least two players (Shumper and Crowder) who were, at one point in their careers, thought of as plus defenders. Though after Thomas injured his hip, the Celtics unexpectedly traded him to the Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving in the off-season. Joining Hill in Cleveland's new-look starting lineup will be LeBron James, J.R. Smith, Tristan Thompson and Cedi Osman. I'm really excited about the new guys we have. "It was because were losing - everybody's spirit was down, including mine". After the game when LeBron was talking to Doris Burke, James sounded raspy after having yelled so many times in celebration. However, Iguodala's regressed significantly on offense, and if his shooting woes continue into the postseason, his defensive efforts alone may not be sufficient to keep the Cavs at bay.
