The best thing Le Bron James can do for the Cavaliers and their fans is force a trade

With a second remaining in overtime he swatted away a shot by Minnesota's Jimmy Butler.

"This is no time to be ashamed about our season", he added.

"I don't [want to be traded]", Thomas said.

Now third in the East, Cleveland still has a lot of improving to do if they want to make it back to the Finals, but Wednesday night served as a good reminder that if a game comes down to one shot, the Cavaliers will always have the advantage.

LeBron James will be thrilled to play alongside Kawhi Leonard, and they will create the best duo in the league. We've already gotten one major deal. "We've got to change that". He played better Wednesday night, scoring 13 points with seven assists in 31 minutes.

"Jordan and KG, so it's a pretty cool thing", James said. Yes, they traded away Kyrie Irving, but they got back some great players in Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder plus the additions of Wade, and Derrick Rose seemed to be enough.

It was Osman who got switched onto Butler on the drive preceding James' game-winner, but his teammate came to the rescue with a terrific block.

None will be there if the Cavaliers get back to the NBA Finals. "When you're a team, that's what you do".

Neds are still updating their odds in light of the significant shake up the Cavs have brought on in the East. Aussie Ben Simmons is still a hot favourite to win the Rookie of the year award at $1.22, with Donovan Mitchell ($4.50) and Jayson Tatum ($21) longer shots.

At least not until after the game is over and he has time to think about it.

Thomas will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it will be interesting to see how much money he commands and where he ends up.

Clarkson, however, is shooting 32.4 percent on 3-pointers this season, while Nance is a none-threat from deep.

Minnesota (34-23) was just as good on offense.

He averaged 14.3 points in 273 games and 3 and a half seasons for the Lakers.

"We're just gonna be fun again". The only thing left is chemistry.

In New Orleans, the Pelicans' game against the Indiana Pacers was postponed because of a leaky roof at the Smoothie King Center that led to puddling water on the court. "The rim looked like an ocean". They can pick up another veteran player after the deadline when teams buyout certain players.

"To be honest, adrenaline was just going and I didn't even realise what was going on", Simmons said. So they'll go their road and we'll go ours, but we're going to try to make a run for it and with all the injuries we have had, we're not really exhausted.

To kick off proceedings, Adrian Wojnarowski - ESPN's Senior NBA Insider - tweeted out that the Cavaliers were trying to make a deal for Kemba Walker, but that they were struggling to make progress.

"There's definitely an upside to it", Smith said.

That included a joyous team-wide celebration after James' game-winner. "The way we won was something we needed".
