Cleveland Cavaliers welcome LeBron James back in 102-95 win

Cleveland Cavaliers welcome LeBron James back in 102-95 win

The Bucks arrive in Cleveland for the second game of a back-to-back, having gotten the better of the Phoenix Suns in a closely contested Sunday afternoon game in the Bradley Center.

LeBron James shrugged off his recent illness to post 24 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers outlasted the Milwaukee Bucks 102-95 on Monday.

Here's whom the Cavs lost from last year's team: Matthew Dellavedova, Timofey Mozgov, Mo Williams, Dahntay Jones and Sasha Kaun. The signing is expected to be completed Monday, according to The Vertical. Kyrie Irving hit some clutch baskets in the fourth quarter and contributed 25 points and nine assists.

It was just the second win in nine games for the Pacers and only their 10th road win of the season. Teammate Jimmy Butler did secure a triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

Conversely, the Bucks' star struggled all night. He shoots 44.4 percent overall from the floor, 35.6 percent from 3-point range and 82.2 percent from the free-throw line.

Durant landed awkwardly on his hand early in Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers and went to the locker room for an examination, but he later returned to the game. Irving's bank shot from near the corner over helpless Bucks defender Malcolm Brogdon was the shot of the night. Milwaukee went through a stretch where it made 12-of-16 shots from the field before missing 13 of its next 16 attempts, with Cleveland holding a 52-50 halftime lead.

Thanks to DeVos' efforts, language in the order now supposedly requires schools to protect these students from bullying. However, even though her ultimate ineffectiveness and lack of power should give us hope, it is not yet time to relax.

Donald Trump tweets an illogical comment that media is the enemy
By the time the Trump presidency is done, lies will have become such a seasoning as to join salt and pepper on every dinner table. In a sense, Trump is like a dirt-bag drug dealer giving the news media their fix or a rich boyfriend who abuses his partner.

However, as quickly as Cleveland dug itself a hole, the Cavs dug themselves out.

In the first quarter, Irving became the eighth player in Cavs history with 2,000-career assists. This hasn't turned out productively with them both only averaging 1.3 and 1.5 assists per game, respectively. Derrick Williams ended the spurt with a three-pointer to give Cleveland a 97-85 lead. There should be no such concern with Deron Williams. "I feel really good about the way we're playing right now". If that happens, Williams would then move back into the starting lineup.

The Bulls defeated the Cavaliers 117-99 because of course they did. Center Nikola Jokic had his first career triple-double with 20 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in the Nuggets' 121-117 victory over the Bucks on February 3 in Denver.

The end of the first half wasn't exactly ideal for the Cavaliers, but there were some positives to take away from the first 24 minutes.

Derrick Williams scored his most points as a Cavalier with 14 on.714 (5-7) shooting and a.500 (2-4) mark from downtown and pulled down seven rebounds (Cavalier career-high) in 27 minutes in a reserve role.

Richard Jefferson started instead of Channing Frye and added 11 points and six boards.
