Cavs look to James, again
(AP) - LeBron James may rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers in time for their game tonight in Phoenix. If he can ride a white horse into the arena, that might just be the best news the Cavs franchise has gotten since, well, James announced his plans to return to the team last summer.
With James on the sidelines healing from injuries to his back and knee, the Cavs have completely fallen apart. They’ve lost five straight and eight of their last 10 games to fall to 19-19 on the season. The Suns, who are 22-18, have dropped their last two games.
The Hawks continue to just keep winning. They’ve won eight straight and now lead the Wizards by four games in the Southeast Division. Tonight the Hawks are in Philadelphia to face the 76ers, who have a modest two-game winning streak. The Wizards by the way are home to the Spurs.
Golden State continues to have the best overall record in the league. The 29-5 Warriors are on the road tonight for a game in Salt Lake City with Utah. The Warriors have won six straight while the Jazz are 12 games under .500.
Minnesota is in the throes of a 15-game losing streak. The Timberwolves will attempt to snap the skid with a game tonight at Indiana.
The final games feature Dallas at Sacramento and the Lakers home to the Heat.
