Washington Wizards snap new-look Cavs' winning streak

The seventh-ranked 76ers also have a mild road ahead, and have won five straight games. Among all lineups over the last 10 games, the Satoransky/Bradley Beal/Otto Porter/Markieff Morris/Marcin Gortat group has the second-best plus/minus in the league at plus-78 (393-315 in 158 minutes).

"Obviously the break came at a good time for us", said Warriors star Stephen Curry, who scored 44 points. Because now when you're getting shots you're just thinking so much out there on the floor."It's a learning experience and we gotta keep getting better, keep working on it."That patient approach seems to have trickled down to the players". The team record is six, done twice: January 14-24, 1989; and again from February 18, 1989 - March 2, 1989.

No. 14-ranked Arizona will be without one of its most important players for Thursday's game at Oregon State, as the school announced that junior shooting guard Allonzo Trier has been declared ineligible by the NCAA.

The Cavaliers have confirmed that Thornton is going to be assigned to the Charge for Friday night's game against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. The most recent of these was a 120-112 victory in which LeBron James put up 37 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists.

James likes the energy his new-look squad is playing with and the direction they're headed in.

"We're not too concerned about it", the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they aren't authorized to speak about their proposal to the league publicly, said.

Memphis has struggled when it comes to inter-conference play.

Thomas's 28.2-usage rate, the percentage of team plays used by a player while he's on the court, is the 28th highest in the National Basketball Association.

The new and improved Cleveland Cavaliers - It's now been four games since Cleveland overhauled their roster, and since then they haven't lost a game.

The Cavs had led by 12 in the second quarter, but they finished just eight-of-35 from three-point range as the Wizards, still without injured five-time All-Star point guard John Wall, gained the win. Heading into the All-Star Break, Memphis dropped a shootout to the Oklahoma City Thunder, 121-114, at the FedExForum.

The third quarter was the competitive kind of battle fans like to see. #DubNation is out to an early 23-13 lead.
