LeBron James on conversation with Lonzo Ball: 'None of y'all business'

LeBron James could be wearing a different uniform this time next season, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly uninterested in trading their rights to the Brooklyn Nets' first-round pick in the 2018 draft because of the possibility.

Tyronn Lue's squad has already topped the Wiz once this year - dropping them in a 130-122 shootout back on November 3. Scoring at that pace is not sustainable, but the four-time league MVP has kept up his stellar work and his teammates have followed.

Making this impressive turnaround even more impressive was such was accomplished, for the most part, without the availability of no fewer than four key players, namely Isiah Thomas, Tristan Thompson, Derrick Rose and Iman Shumpert, which indicates that things may get even better for the Cavs upon their return in the future. Despite all of the Cavs winning, they haven't exactly been great against the number this season, and they're just 3-5 ATS when favored by less than six points.

Entering the weekend, James posted averages of 28.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 9.1 assists while shooting a career-best 41.1 percent on 3-pointers.

Beal had 20 points and John Wall scored 15 against the Clippers in his second game after missing nine contests with a left knee injury.

And he comes into this evening's contest just as hot - putting together back-to-back triple-doubles against the Lakers and Jazz as he prepares for the team he loves to torment, especially in their own gym. The Washington Wizards have won six of their last nine home games.

But that's not good enough for the king, and it never will be.

Once again, Kevin Love is quietly putting together another All-Star season and although he struggled in the first meeting against Washington, that's been a big exception to the rule through the first 29 contests. In order to win tough games like this on the road, you have to capitalize while the star players sit and the Jazz did not do that in Cleveland.

Korver has now scored in double-figures in four straight games and currently leads all National Basketball Association reserves in plus/minus (+217) and is tied for the top spot with 77 triples made. Mitchell really made his presence known in the fourth quarter.

But the Wizards can also bring some firepower off the bench. Otto Porter Jr.is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Oubre Jr.is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.
