LeBron won’t waive no-trade clause despite rocky relationship with Cavs

If any teams had hopes of prying LeBron James from the Cleveland Cavaliers before Thursday's trade deadline, it seems they can disregard that possibility. James will not waive his no-trade clause and is committed to seeing this season through with the Cavs, despite the club's recent struggles. "I owe it to my teammates to finish the season out," James said following the Cavs' 116-98 loss to the Magic in Orlando on Tuesday night.

Part-GTY-913977930-1-1-0

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers crashed to yet another humiliating defeat against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday as James Harden scored his 15,000th career point to extend Houston's winning streak to five games. In Orlando, James scored 25 points but it was not enough to prevent the Cavs from slumping to a 116-98 loss in a roller coaster game. Cleveland looked to be in the mood for an emphatic win after piling on a massive 43 points in the first quarter and powering to 67-51 at half-time.

As we anointed Boston the Eastern Conference’s heir, wondered if Jabari Parker could make Milwaukee a threat and debated whether Washington was equipped to make another postseason run, we largely dismissed Toronto. Toronto has made the playoffs four straight seasons, yet only advanced out of the first round twice. Last season the Raps were a veteran-laden, experienced bunch that added Serge Ibaka at the trade deadline and seemed ready to challenge Cleveland for the Eastern Conference crown.

Raptors rout Celtics in battle of East’s best

A quick peek at the Eastern Conference standings reveals that the Boston Celtics have the conference's best record, but the Toronto Raptors looked like the premier team in the East on Tuesday night. Kyle Lowry scored a game-high 23 points and CJ Miles added 20 to power the Raptors in a 111-91 blowout of the Celtics at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The Raptors overcame 17 points from Boston's Kyrie Irving in his return from an injury.

The Cavs are still looking to get LeBron James some help. The Cavaliers continue to engage Sacramento on George Hill, sources told Yahoo Sports, and the Kings have quietly been looking for a third team to involve. The Cavs — who have little interest in taking on the $19 million Hill is owed next season — have pushed for J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to be part of the package, a source said, which the Kings have no interest in.
