Isaiah Thomas: Cavs Wilt Under Adversity

Los Angeles Unlikely To Deal Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle Before Deadline

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue will be back on the sidelines Wednesday night when the Cavs face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves in a nationally televised game.

Tip-off in Cleveland is set for 8 p.m. EST and the game will be shown on ESPN.

"When we hit adversity, we go our separate ways".

"Teams are not just going to allow us to continue to score and continue to do things at a high level".

"I didn't think it would be like this, but it is something that we got to continue to keep fighting, try to dig ourselves out of this hole".

But they have other issues to worry about right now.

DeMar DeRozan had 15 points, with six assists and three rebounds. He acknowledged on Tuesday that his habit of speaking up has caused some backlash. "I don't know", he said. But something needs to be addressed. "But also, I can't sit here and look you in the eye and tell you that Isaiah will not recover enough to be a great player again in two months, I mean, it's a pretty big risk, but I'm going to tell you that if you watch the way the team plays, the spirit when LeBron is out there with Isaiah is absolutely palpable". Per sources, the Cavs have shopped J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson, and Channing Frye over the past several days.But there has been wide speculation that Thomas, the marquee player the Cavs got in return for Kyrie Irving in a blockbuster trade last summer, isn't a good fit for this team. He hasn't performed well at all with the Cavs, and he's presumably not yet at 100 percent after a hip injury forced him to miss the first 36 games of the season.

The "hating hours" line has become somewhat of a catchphrase for Thomas, as the two-time All-Star often will reference it on social media and even had it printed on a T-shirt that he wore to the Cavs' game against the Houston Rockets on November 9.

Isaiah Thomas said he is not hoping he's traded from the Cavaliers by Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline, while acknowledging the rocky start to his tenure here."I'm exhausted of being traded", Thomas said, after the Cavs stunned Minnesota, 140-138 in overtime.

Wednesday's overtime victory was likely a welcome birthday present for Thomas.
