Cavaliers make statement, destroy Boston 121-99 Video

The Cavaliers had a glaring defensive problem, but trades could solve it

Jordan Clarkson Le Bron James

Clarkson finished with 17 points while Hood and J.R. Smith each added 15. Well, that doesn't happen very often.

Harden, the league's leading scorer, connected on 13 of 25 shots from the field, including five of 12 from three-point range, as the Rockets notched a sixth straight victory. I just feel like he was playing behind the eight ball, not only on the floor, but just trying to get himself back to where he's accustomed to playing. Here's another insane stat: entering Friday's contest with the Denver Nuggets, the Rockets have failed to score 100 points only four times all season. He was one point shy of his career-high 31 points, done twice in his second and third seasons in the National Basketball Association. They also unloaded Isaiah Thomas, Dwayne Wayde, Jae Crowder, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye and Derrick Rose, players who were odd men out and didn't quite fit into this year's team dynamics.

Boston has been at the top in the Eastern Conference all season, thanks to superb play from Kyrie Irving, the NBA's top-rated defense and the rapid development of its young players. I wish it could've been a lot better than it was.

'I look forward to getting them here. ". But it wasn't really added fuel". He made only two of seven free throws, twice missing each of two attempts.

LeBron James had a triple-double and Kyle Korver scored a season-high 30 points, including four straight 3-pointers to close the third period, as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks 123-107 on Friday night for a successful start to their reboot.

That sentiment was echoed by Dahntay Jones, who has been a late addition to the Cavaliers' roster over the past two seasons. LeBron's teammates have struggled to knock down the shots he has been providing in recent weeks so hopefully the new line-up will be able to convert more than the old side, in order to give the Celtics a good game on Sunday.

The loss was the second in a row for Atlanta -they lost 100-98 in Orlando on Thursday- after winning their previous two games.

James went on Instagram to endorse the move for one of his best friends, posting "truly happy for my brother @dwyanewade!" I wish the best for him.

Still, Cleveland is in a prime position to make a major push in the postseason with this new looking locker room, but they can't do it just with youth, so they're reportedly not done yet and are keen to acquire some veteran leadership among the buyout candidates. They were the key players the Clippers acquired in last week's deal that sent Griffin to Detroit. Boston did that Thursday when it signed Greg Monroe, and the Warriors and Cavaliers - who will have open roster spots after Thursday's moves - will surely be watching to see if players like Evans or Joe Johnson become available in the coming days.
