Cavs waive Sanders, sign 2 players for postseason

Meanwhile, Cleveland Indians fans are different this year as they have purchased more than 1.2 million tickets, a figure not reached until July of last year. You can't ever say that about any team with LeBron James. Let's get ready to go.

"We believe we can beat them", Teague said. "Portland has the first crack, and (the Blazers) will give it everything they have".

The 6-11 Sanders, the once promising forward-center who left pro basketball two years ago, appeared in five games after signing with the Cavs on March 13. "I feel great. I'm not going backward". The Cavaliers are 0-7 this season when he doesn't play.

Miles averages 10.7 points per game with a 43.4 shooting percentage - 41.3 percent from 3 - but against the Cavs those numbers jump to 56 percent from 3 and 61.7 percent from the field.

With six straight visits to the Finals on his resume, James knows his way around the playoffs better than any player in the league, and maybe better than anyone in history.

Cavaliers: James averaged 26.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 8.7 assists. Cleveland finished the regular season with ninth-worst defensive rating in the league.

"Definitely we've gotten closer", George said Friday before the Pacers left Indianapolis.

But, as usual, the Pacers couldn't contain James, who improved to 45-7 in the opening round and made sure he and his teammates didn't stumble out of the postseason gate.

The Celtics, however, are eager to go into the post-season as the top team in the East.

Browns zero in on No. 1 pick, trade for veteran QB unlikely
But the likeliest scenario is that the Browns stick with Garrett, leaving the next 31 picks in the draft open for business. Despite the morass that was 1-15 in 2016, no heads rolled in the offseason, and I had absolutely no issue with that.

Some good news for the Pacers is that Cleveland has been struggling in the final two months of the regular season. Irving added 23 points and six assists, while Kevin Love chipped in 17 points for the Cavs.

Al Horford added 19 points and eight rebounds.

The Pacers will practice in Cleveland on Sunday to prepare for Game 2 on Monday, which will air nationally on TNT at 7:00 PM ET. "In situations like that, I gotta get the last shot".

The Wizards took three of four games from the Hawks during the season. But after Lance Stephenson returned - he made his debut against the Cavs - the Pacers reeled off five straight wins and head into Saturday as the hottest team in the East. In all four matchups, the Pacers have scored more than 100 points, including a 103-93 victory at home over the Cavs on November 16 - a game in which James did not play. The Warriors have ruled in 11 of the 13 matchups, sweeping all four games this season.

But in the last matchup, the Cavs had to go to double overtime in a 135-130 victory.

After rallying from a double-digit deficit to take a brief lead in the final minutes, the Pacers hung tough and had the ball in the final seconds with a chance to win the game. Portland hopes to regain the services of center Jusuf Nurkic, who missed the final seven games with a non-displaced fracture of his right leg.

Raptors star guard Kyle Lowry is eager to get started.

San Antonio and Memphis split four regular-season meetings. "The biggest thing is for us to come out with the same grit and a little better communication".
