Spurs 118, Cavs 115; Jason Lloyd's 14 thoughts on a bad punch and a blown hammer

CLEVELAND: Fourteen thoughts for 14 rebounds from Tristan Thompson in Saturday’s 118-115 overtime loss to the San Antonio Spurs… 1.    LeBron James stood annoyed at his teammates on at least two separate occasions Saturday night: When Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson botched a play late in overtime and when Kevin Love fired a pass to Kawhi Leonard when he tried saving the ball from going out of bounds. 2.    First, the “Punch Snap Hammer” play that ESPN’s Dave McMenamin brilliantly broke down. The Cavs tried running it again trailing 116-113 with 24 seconds left. Coming...

Watch: Nikola Jokic’s 19 points against the Clippers

Even on what seems like an off night, the Joker still got it done For the past few weeks we have all witnessed the rise of the Nikola Jokic as he has taken the league by storm and helped solidify the Nuggets in the eighth playoff spot, tonight making DeAndre Jordan and the Los Angeles Clippers his latest victim. Jokic’s stat line tonight seems quite pedestrian compared to the ridiculous numbers he has put up in days’ past - 19 points, 10 rebounds and just three assists - but his impact on this game was far more than what can be found on the box score. With Los Angeles missing Chris...
