LeBron James, Cavs routed again as Raptors romp 133-99

Points are proving hard to come by for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who trailed by 25 points at halftime against the Toronto Raptors.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 15 of his 20 points in the first half for the Spurs, who committed 21 turnovers while playing without injured starters Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Danny Green.

That's why two teams played two very different games Thursday night, but left Air Canada Centre in the same exact place: waiting for the spring, when the real versions of both will emerge.

It's been a awful stretch of games for Cleveland, as they now find themselves 6.5 games behind the Boston Celtics at the top of the Eastern Conference, and 3.5 games behind the Raptors in second.

It is easy to understand why James was livid as the Cavs lost for the seventh time in their last 10 games.

"Just us trying to figure it out", James said, explaining the exchange.

Despite all of this DeMar DeRozan managed only 13 points but he led all players with eights assists.

He said: "We gotta be better". Kevin Love followed up his 1-for-7 night in the Cavs' loss to Minnesota on Monday with a 2-for-8 night against Toronto for 10 points. They won't need reminding, though, that Cleveland has dumped them from the playoffs in each of the last two seasons.

Fred VanVleet basically re-wrote his career best listings with a 22 points night which was a career best as were his six three's his eight attempts from three and his 11 field goal attempts.

So Coach Dwane Casey sought to change things.

Toronto's bench outscored Cleveland's 76-48.

Besides on offense, Thompson also muddies up the Cavs defensive scheme as well. Gone are the days of Toronto relying on one Lowry or DeRozan isolation after another offensively. They're 15-2 at home while the Cavs are now 11-11 away from home. The problem is that the type of player they are looking for may not even be available for trade this season. From my experience as a veteran player, my message is we've got to all play for each other a little more. "And they don't know how much of their future they want to try to mortgage to try and win this year", Wojnarowski said during an appearance on ESPN's "SportsCenter", via NESN.

For a night though it had to feel pretty good for the Raptors to be the one's laying the beating rather than on the receiving end of it which they have been too often with this Cavs team. "The Cleveland game is important because it's a conference game, a team we're going to be in a fight with, but it won't make or break our season".
