Cavaliers to sign Dahntay Jones for playoffs


Over his 12-year National Basketball Association career, Jones holds averages of 5.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 15.7 minutes over 623 contests (157 starts) with Memphis, Sacramento, Denver, Indiana, Dallas, Atlanta, Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland.

"Last year was half a season for me, but it just felt like two years".

But with his waiver and the Tavares signing, first reported on The Vertical, Sanders will have to find another team to complete his comeback.

Five straight wins to close out the regular season earned the Blue and Gold the 7 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and a first round match-up with Cleveland. "We've just got to stick together and focus on ourselves".

George got his wish, and if he and the seventh-seeded Pacers can shock the Cavs, it would add another chapter to his incredible comeback story. "But I've got the answer why I feel like we've got a great chance", James affirmed Cavalier fans everywhere.

Speaking of which, Kyle Lowry will probably get some minutes tonight too, if only to continue to get him back up to speed with the team's rotations and his new teammates.

"It starts with baby steps first, and we understand that", James said, via ESPN. "You guys are trying to drain my energy right now, I just told you I felt great". The Bulls finally figured out what they're going to do, who they're going to be. DeRozan finished the season with a career-high 2,020 points, while his 27.3 average was the second highest in franchise history.

In Game 1, the Pacers will likely roll with the same starting lineup they used down the stretch - Jeff Teague at point guard, Monta Ellis at shooting guard, Paul George at small forward, Thad Young at power forward and Myles Turner at center.

Russian Federation accuses United States of unlawful Syria raid as Tillerson visits
Ambassador Nikki Haley is warning that the United States will not allow any further use of chemical weapons "to go unanswered". Rather, they argue, any US-Russia deal over Syria is going to have to take Moscow's interests squarely into account.

U.S. doesn't intend to get drawn into Syrian war, defense chief says
Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano, who hosted the G-7 gathering, said "there is no consensus for further new sanctions". Russia, Assad's staunchest ally, has insisted the Syrian leader is blameless and that rebels disbursed chemical weapons.

Bruins coach Cassidy ready to return to playoffs
Boston will be without defensemen Torey Krug (knee) and Brandon Carlo (possible concussion) for the start of the series, at least. At this point it appears Chris Kelly, Ryan Dzingel , Chris Neil, Colin White and Chris DiDomenico will be the odd-men out.

LeBron James led the league in average minutes played, but will have almost one full week of rest heading into Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Indiana Pacers. You know how talented he is and know he's going to come out and lead his team.

"Yeah, we were watching a little bit of it", said Celtics guard Marcus Smart, who scored 13 points against the Nets.

The Cavs did get forward Tristan Thompson back after he missed four games with a sprained right thumb.

"Larry did everything we asked him to do", general manager David Griffin said.

These two teams recently gave us one of the games of the season back on April 2.

The Cavs, who call their own the league's best playoff performer and premier star LeBron James, started each of their last two playoff runs on Sunday.

"But we have to do a good job of taking out all the other guys - C.J. Miles, Monta [Ellis], Aaron Brooks and Lance Stephenson".
