Raptors president Masai Ujiri has joined Kyle Lowry in shooting down a Toronto Star report that says the All-Star point guard has zero interest in remaining with the team.
LeBron James got behind the Celtics defense and caught an outlet pass from Kevin Love just as he approached the rim. James wound up for a monster dunk, but there was just one problem. The ball hit the far side of the rim and caromed high off the cylinder and into the hands of Boston’s Avery Bradley.
Had James made the dunk, he would have given the Cavaliers a 70-69 lead, which would have been the first time they led the game since jumping out to a 5-0 lead to open Tuesday’s Game 4. The 6-8 James had missed just six dunks all season.

Irving scored 19 of Cleveland’s final 21 points of the quarter.

If I look at the numbers, look at the body of work, I can say that six championships later, Phil Jackson is one of the greatest coaches in the history of sports. Not just basketball, but in sports. And I can say that definitively. And I can also look at the numbers and say that as the guy running the New York Knicks, he’s done a poor job. When you look at the results, he’s been a failure thus far. Carmelo Anthony is an outstanding basketball player who has handled himself remarkably during these last couple of years. At the end of the day, he negotiated a no-trade clause. I think [Phil Jackson is] going about it the wrong way trying to force [Anthony] out. He has all the power and he’s taking full advantage of it.
