Grizzlies fall to Cavaliers — Postgame Report

Cleveland used this year's trade deadline to dramatically change its roster.

Nance the Cavaliers' all-time leader in blocks per game, and he's got the third-best field goal percentage in franchise history. Right now we're just trying to pay attention to detail. "There's been dominant conferences throughout time", LeBron said during Cleveland Cavaliers practice on Wednesday.

Considering how deplorable the Cavs had been on D for much of the season, it sounded downright audacious when, earlier this week, coach Tyronn Lue declared his new group's identity would be based on its defensive prowess.

"Where I am now, I think we can be really good". Go out there and get stops, play as a team, and try to get the win. "We've got a ways to go, but we're coming".

Bradley Beal starred in the absence of team-mate John Wall, scoring 18 points and tallying nine assists for the Wizards.

"So I think we still gotta be smart about the situation, but they say he feels good".

Simmons added 11 assists and seven rebounds for Philadelphia and Joel Embiid chipped in 30 points and 13 rebounds as the 76ers snapped a four-game road losing streak. Cleveland's big three did not even make the trip with the Cavs that game, contributing to a growing debate in the National Basketball Association about when player rest is appropriate. Memphis led by as many as 13 points in the opening quarter.

Trailing 82-79 going into the fourth period, Cleveland took an 89-88 lead on Kyle Korver's three-pointer with 9:42 remaining.

"When the game gets choppy, it's hard, but that's a test of your mental toughness and your fortitude", Grizzlies interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said.

Come on Ty, you have to remember? James has played in all 58 Cleveland games this season.

Playing in its first game since the All-Star break, Memphis has now lost eight in a row.

After his son was acquired by the Cavs in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers on February 8, Nance Sr. said during an appearance ESPN Radio's Golic and Wingo he wanted him to have his jersey number with the team. Evans was 3 for 7 from outside the arc, marking his 28th straight game with at least one 3-pointer, breaking the franchise record of 27 previously held by Mike Miller.

The subject of James resting came up Friday because Lue chose to sit James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving when the Cavs traveled to play the Grizzlies last December.

"I feel like tonight in the second half, no matter if a guy was beat, another guy was there to help out and the guy who helped out, there was another one making a rotation", Hill said. James, who played 36 minutes in Thursday's loss to Washington, played just under 37 minutes Friday night.

The Grizzlies now head to Miami, where they look to even the two-game series with the Miami Heat tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m. CT at American Airlines Arena.

The Cavs beat the Grizzlies in Cleveland the night before, and picked the December 14 game to rest each of their stars.
