LeBron’s numbers sliding while Cavaliers slip in standings

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ View comments James and his teammates practiced the past two days while searching for answers following a horrific performance on Saturday against Oklahoma City. With Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony combining for 88 points, the Thunder put up 148 against the Cavaliers, whose defensive ineptitude has raised questions about their title legitimacy.Coach Tyronn Lue didn’t show his team film from the game, but James watched it to try to decipher what went wrong.“A lot of bad things,” he said. “We had some good things offensively. We almost scored 130 ourselves. But defensively we had a lot of breakdowns and a lot of things we gotta clean up.”There’s a pile of alarming issues right now, but James isn’t overreacting.“I’m not a red-flag guy. I’m not a concerned guy,” he said. “I’m a guy that thinks it’s going to get better. That’s just who I am.” Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH As Cleveland has staggered to a 3-9 record since it lost at Golden State on Christmas and fallen behind Boston and Toronto in the Eastern Conference standings, its decline has run parallel to a statistical drop-off by James, who was considered the front-runner in the MVP race before the calendar changed to 2018.“My numbers are down, the team’s numbers are down and we’re not playing well, so obviously it’s a direct correlation of all of those things,” James said Monday before the team traveled to San Antonio. “I could care less about me individually, but when I’m not playing to my standard and we’re losing, then I have to do a better job as well, so I gotta figure that out, too.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutOver his last 12 games, James is averaging 22.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 4.4 turnovers. He is making 21 percent of his 3-pointers this month after knocking down 35 percent of his shots behind the arc in December. The 14-time All-Star, four-time MVP and three-time champion has failed to reach 20 points in four of Cleveland’s past nine games after scoring fewer than 20 in five of the club’s first 36 games.Everything with the Cavaliers starts and ends with the 33-year-old James.

I have to pick it up for other guys and I haven’t been able to do that as of late. It’s not about them, it’s about me.”One of the reasons for James’ sinking stats is that he’s been trying to incorporate guard Isaiah Thomas into Cleveland’s offense. The All-Star has played seven games since returning from a hip injury that sidelined him since May, and he and James are still learning to work together.Thomas is most comfortable initiating offensive sets with the ball, and James has been sacrificing early touches in the 24-second shot clock to accommodate his teammate.James knows the Cavs need to get Thomas — and Derrick Rose, back from an ankle injury — up to speed. It’s taking time, and it’s going to require patience — and maybe some pain.“It’s a challenge that I’m willing to make and willing to do,” James said. “It’s definitely a fine line for me personally, but I’m willing to see if it works well for us or if it doesn’t work well for us.”ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

AFC Cup: Heavy defeat leaves Ceres needing miracle

first_imgIstiklol got a goal each at from Akhtam Nazarov and Romish Dhzalilov in the first half, before a second half brace from Manuchehr Dhzalilov ensured the Tajiks go into the second leg on Sept. 12 at Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City with a comfortable advantage. A 5-0 win at home will allow the Busmen to advance, but a 4-0 scorline will send the tie to extra time. But with the way the Tajik champions dominated the first leg, it seems the Busmen would need a miracle for that to happen. FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingNazarov opened the scoring by converting a penalty in the 25th minute after Kota Kawase brought down Dimitri Barkov inside the area. Romish Dhzalilov doubled the lead at the stroke of halftime with a clinical strike that left Roland Muller with no chance. The Busmen hardly threatened in the first half as Istiklol controlled proceedings, pressing high and winning the ball early. It didn’t help that the Busmen missed their top defender Super Herrera to suspension as Kawase struggled to deal with Barkov.

On a chilly night in the outskirts of the capital Dushanbe, the Busmen struggled to cope against a relentless Istiklol side that made the most of its physical advantage by hassling and harrying the visitors at Hisor Stadium.ADVERTISEMENT Coming out with renewed drive after the restart, the Busmen saw Bienvenido Maranon sending a long-range effort off target in the 51st minute, but cracks in the defense continued to show with Muller and Kawase colliding as Barkov pressed, before Junior Munoz made the clearance. As the Filipinos chased the game, Istiklol continued to find gaps in the defense with Manuchehr Dzhalilov scoring the first of his two goals from long range in the 67th minute. There was time for the Istiklol target man to score a fourth two minutes from time as the Busmen once again failed to deal with a cross, allowing Vadiev Dilshod to set up Dzhalilov who slotted home from close range. The Busmen fly home on Wednesday morning, but this was a tough reality check as they paid dearly for a sub-par away performance.ADVERTISEMENT View comments SEA Games: Cray settles for silver in 100m dash Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Gameslast_img read more
