LeBron James, Cavaliers Slide Continues with Loss to Pistons; Kevin Love Injured

Last meeting: The Cavs won 108-97 on November 28 at The Q. In opposition of Miami, a little over half of Cavaliers games have finished over the total. The Cavs beat the Heat back in November when the Cavs were on their run of 18 wins in 19 tries, which also included LeBron's first career injection.

Tuesday's hand injury will put Love's availability for the All-Star Game next month in jeopardy. Josh Richardson has also become one of the best two-way players in the league. Korver ended his night with 10 points.

James scored 21 points for Cleveland, but Love's condition was foremost on everyone's mind. Whiteside is a hugely talented player, but he only sometimes appears to be enthusiastic about playing.

It could be a tough game for Cleveland on the offensive glass.

Goran Dragic vs Isaiah Thomas - Let's not sugar coat it; since he returned from injury, Thomas has been pretty woeful for the Cavs. His 3.9 assists is only 1.5 times higher than his 2.6 turnovers, and his defensive problems are well documented. Kevin Love is averaging 17.9 points and 9.4 rebounds in his tenth season in the National Basketball Association. Even though they are having their own struggles, I have to take the Cavs here.

Before the start of the game between the Cavs and the Pistons Tuesday, NBA TV's Dennis Scott was interviewing the University of CT product when James came flying in from nowhere to shout "Team LeBron!" at the mic and left just as speedily.

Walmart Makes a Late Entry Into the E-Book Market
In 2016, Japan was the second-largest market outside the USA for Amazon , following Germany, with sales of $10.8 billion. This tie-up represents a pretty clear challenge to Amazon , both in the US and in Japan.

Miami averages 42.2 rebounds per game, which ranks 20th in the league. On the season, Miami has lost by an average of 0.6 points. Johnson's previous career high was 22 points against NY on February 4, 2016. In 15 minutes of backup point guard duty, Buycks pitched in 11 points, two assists, and two steals.

Andre Drummond had 21 points and 22 rebounds for the Pistons, who snapped an eight-game losing streak despite a lineup that was depleted by their blockbuster trade for Blake Griffin.

In a recent interview with Cleveland.com, Thomas was asked about the time when he reportedly called out Love for missing parts of the game and the team's practice. They've held a share of the league's worst defense almost halfway through the season, had an unproductive - and publicly reported - player's meeting, dealt with porous amounts of friendly fire pettiness, and now, after an embarrassing loss, will be without Kevin Love for up to two months.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, players gathered for the meeting held before they started practice on January 22.

Miami are a odd combination of solid players, all of whom seem to be clicking in the past few weeks.
