Larry Nance, Cavs reach 4-year, $45 million extension

Carmelo Anthony's debut was biggest dud on huge NBA night

"The way we look at it is when we make the playoffs, people are going to be pretty shocked and we just can't wait to shock everybody". "There were a lot of whistles, a lot of stoppage, we sent them to the line a little bit too much and gave up a few too many offensive rebounds".

"They may be further ahead of the curve because they have everybody back and have had the same team for a while", Green said. "You're always going to jockey for position, momentum, anything that can motivate you, you want to use it at any point in the season, especially now". For us, we're a play-off team. He got a scholarship to play at the University of Wyoming.

Lue could be on to something with Love.

James could probably be forgiven for taking his talents to Hollywood.

Last season, Cleveland cruised through the Eastern Conference play-offs before meeting the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

The Celtics had a couple of days to generally rest their legs since Tuesday, but now they head into a span of three games in four nights.

Love is now the face of the franchise while first-round draft pick Collin Sexton hopes to throw his hat into the ring for Rookie-of-the-Year consideration.

Kawhi Leonard, Toronto's prized off-season acquisition, had 24 points and 12 rebounds in his first real game as a Raptor, while Kyle Lowry had 27 points and eight assists, and Toronto beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-104 on Wednesday.

The exact details of the contract extension have yet to surface, but the deal is reportedly worth four-years for $44.8 million.

"The only thing I didn't want was I didn't want to be with a team that was going to tank or not be competitive", Love said.

Before the game, Sky Sports pundit Redknapp quizzed the Cavs power forward on where his love for football (soccer) came from and who was his favourite Premier League player.

Giving up their leading scorer and fan favorite DeRozan for Leonard, who can depart after one season, was a risk that the Raptors were willing to take after repeated playoff failures.

"Obviously, losing LeBron, you know what is going to happen with that".

When Osman was asked by play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod if he was pleased with his own performance, Osman responded by saying "I mean, I'm not because we lost" (h/t the Cavs' Official Website).
