Is the Cavs' Locker Room Breaking up Again after JR Smith's Suspension?

That has made him an effective leader for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and someone his teammates look up to, by giving instructions to them on how to become more effective during games.

James, the three-time National Basketball Association champion and four-time Most Valuable Player, owns a US$35.6 million (RM139.3 million) player option if he decides to return to Cleveland next season and forego free agency this summer. They now lead IN by just two games.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 23 points and De'Aaron Fox added 21 to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 116-111 overtime win over the Brooklyn Nets. The center is averaging 16.2 points, 9.4 boards and 1.1 blocks in 17 games with the Charge this season. Skal Labissiere added 11 points. With extra practice time during a five-game home stand, the team with four new rotation pieces has taken the time to implement more offensive sets.

Elsewhere, Isaiah Thomas scored a season-high 29 points, Julius Randle added 25 and the Los Angeles Lakers continued their surge by topping the Miami Heat 131-113. Since 1995, it was just the fourth time the Heat has allowed more than 130 points.

Smith, who has started 56 of the Cavs' 59 games this season, is now averaging 8.3 points per game in 29.3 minutes this season, his lowest scoring average since his second season in the National Basketball Association and the lowest per-36 minutes scoring figure of his career. James, on the other hand, had 30 points, but also had nine rebounds and eight assists like Simmons. And Damian Lillard shook off a poor shooting start to score 35 points as the Portland Trail Blazers rallied for a 108-99 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. His stance was in stark contrast with his position in the summer, when he was reportedly unhappy at being benched in favor of Dwyane Wade.
