Enes Kanter trolls LeBron James after Cavaliers loss

Enes Kanter trolls LeBron James after Cavaliers loss

It was one point off the most points the Thunder have ever scored, and is the most in a regulation game in the OKC era. Philadelphia scored 148 on the Cavs back in 1972. Adams (25 points 10 rebounds), Westbrook (23 points 20 assists), George (36 points) and forward Carmelo Anthony (29 points 10 rebounds), combined for 113 points.

James finished the game with 18 points, seven shy of reaching the 30,000 mark.

Oklahoma City is 17-5 when they hold opponents under 100 points, while Cleveland is 10-2.

Speaking with reporters, King James looked bewildered by his squad's recent performance.

LeBron James came up just short of 30,000 points.

Hills big, multi-year deal isn't ideal, but the guard is an ideal fit next to James (and even point guard Isaiah Thomas) for his shooting and defensive abilities. Cleveland fashioned a token rally behind its bench to open the second, cutting the deficit to nine points before Oklahoma City reclaimed momentum when its starters returned to action.

Cavaliers center Kevin Love only played three minutes because he was sick. Obviously we had a great first half on Monday (against Golden State), great first half today and the same result.

During their last five games, the Cavaliers have scored an average of 101.0 points per game (8.4 below their season average) and allowed an average of 115.6 points per game (7.0 above their season average).

That was impossible as the Thunder extended its lead to 24 when Anthony drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key, sapping whatever energy Clevelanders had left. Instead, James was subbed out with 6:37 left in the fourth quarter and the Thunder ahead by 26.

The Thunder now return to Oklahoma City where they'll take on the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. It was the start of a four free-throw sequence for Roberson, who snagged an offensive rebound but missed the second two shots to go 0-of-4, still wiping at his face after the shots. On Saturday, James took to Twitter to poke fun at the rumor mill, adding the fictional movie character Teen Wolf to the list of players Cleveland might be trying to acquire.

"I've been a part of a lot of those baskets he's had". "They got everything that they wanted".

The three-time champion conceded that this season has been hard. The game begins at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, January 20, 2018.

Rose deepens Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue's rotation and the former league MVP gives the Cavs another proven scorer. No one is going to feel sorry for us.
