Cavs expected to make at least one trade before deadline

The Golden State Warriors once again dismissed their top rivals, only they managed to create more distance from the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena than they did in Oakland last month.

The Cavaliers do have their own 2018 first-round pick, but it's nowhere as valuable as the Nets' pick. This crew was responsible for the huge trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and two draft picks.

The Cavs started this season with a 5-7 record, then later cranked out 18 wins in 19 games.

Furthermore, numerous wins were racked up against inferior opponents. They were considered vulnerable for parts of last season, but still ripped through the Eastern Conference with staggering ferocity, losing only one game before the NBA Finals. The Cavs are attempting to make a fourth straight Finals appearance after going 1-2 in the championship round against the Warriors the past three years. The game January 15 at The Q might provide a preview whether Thomas could make a positive difference if the same two teams meet for a fourth straight championship.

With 30 points out of a possible 100, Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) is also ranked partly-free, as was Georgia in Armenia's north. At the same time, Bulgaria's freedom of the media is placed in the category of "partially free" states.

The Cavaliers are growing increasingly unhappy after their 118-108 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday (AEDT), according to reports.

Golden State were missing Steph Curry for that game but still came out with the win and have won eight of their 10 games since.

"We just want to continue to get better", James said, and there is plenty of that to do. "Like our effort tonight". Over the weekend, Thomas called his strong first two games with Cleveland "fool's gold", admitting, "The shots were going in, but none of my movements, none of the things I usually do felt normal". James has given them no indication he plans to stay beyond this season and a hard restart would be far easier with that kind of asset. The question is whether that potential will ever be realized.

Since returning from his hip injury, Isaiah Thomas is averaging 13.6 points and 3.4 assists, while shooting 36 percent overall and just over 23 percent from deep.

Charlotte 118, at Detroit 107: scored 20 points, had 21 points and 17 rebounds and the pulled away in the fourth quarter. The thing is that the Celtics are in a much better position to go on an extended winning streak, and even if the other two teams are playing well, the Celtics should be able to gain a bit of ground. It's not about the amount of shots, it's the amount of good shots.

Kevin Love, however, might need some clarification from Coach Lue in the locker room.

According to multiple reports, "several prominent players" on the Cleveland Cavaliers feel the team's problems can not be solved with its current roster.

That could also include an adjustment period that any sort of major trade would bring.
