LeBron James cools off against Pistons in Cavaliers' Tuesday loss

Las Vegas Gambling Odds Still Have Cavaliers at 2.5x as Likely to Win Finals as Celtics

Kevin Love left Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons with a left hand injury.

Love played just under five minutes before exiting Tuesday's contest against the Detroit Pistons to get X-rays on his left hand. This includes additional consultation with specialists at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City in collaboration with the Cavaliers medical team and the Cleveland Clinic. After some details of the meeting were leaked, there appeared to be lingering tension between Love and some other Cavaliers players. His status will be updated accordingly. "He's a big part of this team, and it's got to be the next-guy-up mentality". "Blake Griffin is one of the NBA's elite players, and when you get an opportunity to add that kind of talent, you take it". In particular, James was recognized for the announced creation of the I PROMISE School, a new Akron Public School inspired by the LeBron James Family Foundation's I Promise program. Should the latter be the case, Love would return with two weeks left in the regular season.

Thomas is right - the Cavaliers have been an bad defensive team all season.

He averages 14.7 points and 15 rebounds this season, compared to Simmons' 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.3 assists. The absence of Love and the cold shooting (2-of-10 from the field) of J.R. Smith required much more production from the bench, which collectively scored 62 points on the night.

Russia's showpiece Syria congress marked by boycotts, little progress
The Sochi conference was originally scheduled to be a two-day event, but it was shortened to a one-day forum on Tuesday. The talks come as Russian and Syrian regime airstrikes kill dozens of civilians in Syria's rebel held Idlib province.

The Griffin and Andre Drummond duo will try to mount a last-ditch run to the postseason after tonight, but the Pistons have been gone 3-12 since Reggie Jackson injured his ankle on December 26 and haven't won a basketball game since January 10.

"I think the overall message on Monday was addressing a situation that a lot of people questioned", Thomas told Bleacher Report. "If we can do that, we'll put ourselves in a position to be ready for the postseason". But Houston's lack of guard depth underscores a flaw in its roster, one General Manager Daryl Morey undoubtedly will try to rectify, either before the February 8 trade deadline, or before the March 1 deadline for players to be bought out, sign with another team and be eligible for the playoffs. ESPN's Brian Windhorst is reporting that the injury will sideline Love for six to eight weeks. Crowder was averaging 8.6 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.

The Wizards started Tomas Satoransky in Wall's place.
