Cavs 120, Kings 100; Jason Lloyd's 22 thoughts on Kyrie Irving's legs, J.R. Smith's defense and Kobe

CLEVELAND: Twenty-two thoughts for 22 points from J.R. Smith in Monday’s 120-100 win over the Sacramento Kings… 1. Over his last seven games, Kyrie Irving has scored 28, 21, 25, 26, 19, 29 and now 32 points. His five 3-pointers Monday were a season high and his 13 baskets were one shy of a season high. Better yet, he’s shooting 54 percent over that stretch, which dates back to Jan. 29. 2. Bottom line: Irving is coming along. The last part of his game to return following his knee surgery seems to be his 3-point shooting, which makes sense in a way. Tyronn Lue reiterated after this...

The latest victim: forward Trevor Booker, who suffered a concussion on a freak play in Thursday nights loss to the Sacramento Kings. Midway through the third quarter, Sacramento big man DeMarcus Cousins was whistled for a traveling violation, but continued his path to the basket. But when he tried to dunk, the ball against the front of the rim and Cousins hand smashed into Bookers face, leaving the Jazzman stu...

Utah Jazz notes: Back injury keeps Derrick Favors out of 12th straight game

At this point, the Utah Jazz have to be concerned about Derrick Favors and his balky back. Even if the coaches and front office aren’t saying so publicly. Utah’s star power forward missed his 12th consecutive game on Thursday night against the Sacramento Kings at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Now for the concerning part: For most of his injury, Favors has been a game-time decision. He’s gone through his normal pregame routine on many nights. On some game days, he’s gone through shootarounds. But on T...
