CP3 leads Rockets to rout of defenseless Cavs

  • Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue

Otherwise, James Harden could have waited for the Rockets' lead to reach 35 to ask if he checked the temperature in Houston on Saturday.

The Rockets improved to 23-1 with Harden, Paul and Capela in the starting lineup.

As for the present, James has not been himself on the court. They let a almost $5 million trade exception expire last month, in part because it would cost the Cavs millions in salary and tax penalties to waive one of their current players in order to make room.James has a $35.6 million player's option on his contract next season.

"Just want to be better". He got the bright idea to put Thomas, Rose, Dwyane Wade and Kyle Korver on the floor to start the second period, and it was hard to tell whether the Cavs were worse offensively or defensively in falling behind 48-25 with 8:16 left in the first half. Even with Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza out, the Rockets took target practice from deep.

Too Much Firepower - Chris Paul led 6 Rockets in double figures with 22 points and he added 11 assists and 8 rebounds.

Tobias Harris scored 24 points in his team debut as the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Chicago Bulls for a 113-103 win.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are nearing rock bottom. He's going through a puzzling slump, and after scoring just 11 points and taking only 10 shots on Saturday, his night ended with him whipping the ball in disgust toward one hoop as the third quarter horn sounded. That fact is largely because of one player in LeBron James.

In any case, James' attitude (much like that of teammate Isaiah Thomas) isn't doing much to help the team. There are so many issues for them at present. As a whole, Cleveland has been one of the worst defensive teams in the league and there has been very little cohesion overall. But without any assurance that the three-time champion will be staying beyond this season, Cleveland's front office is hesitant to make a major deal.

English players are masters of diving, says Wenger
But here, talkSPORT.com is more concerned with the present and tells you what you need to know about the north London derby. Wenger was asked about the subject in his pre-match news conference before the north London derby against Tottenham .

The Cavs were so bad and so non-competitive that they were down 15-4 and 2-for-11 from the field before ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy finished his first thought.

It shouldn't be confusing as to why James isn't giving one hundred percent effort on every play or why his jump shot hasn't been as effective of late. In the past, David Blatt and Kevin Love had that honor and the torch has now been passed to coach Tyronn Lue. Cleveland had won 17 of its last 19 games at home, but the Rockets recorded at least 32 points in each of the opening three periods before turning to their reserves in the fourth.

LeBron James chucked the ball before the halftime buzzer sounded for a full-court three-point attempt that was never meant to go in the hoop.
