Embarrassing encore: Raptors hand Cavaliers second straight blowout loss

In a video posted by EuroHoops from Thursday night's game James, not Tyronn Lue, looks like the Cavaliers' head coach.

LeBron James' comments at the shootaround Thursday morning about the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers ended up being prescient when it came to the beatdown in store for his team from the Toronto Raptors later that night.

Lorenzo Brown's ferocious dunk gave Toronto a 113-78 lead with 7:59 to go, and the Raptors finished off their highest scoring game of the season.

Irving certainly had a much better Thursday night than LeBron did, with the Celtics putting together a 22-point comeback in London to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-103. Kawhi Leonard is back on the sidelines with a shoulder injury, and this might be something that the Spurs have to deal with for the rest of the season.

Julian Assange is officially a citizen of Ecuador
He was succeeded by Lenín Moreno, who although an ally of Correa's has demonstrated little enthusiasm for Assange's cause. There were reports in newspapers in Quito that he had recently been granted a national identity number.

Isaiah Thomas, who scored just four points on 2-of-15 shots vs. the Raptors, offered a solution to turn things around. It's going to start with us and everybody just getting back to what we were doing when we were playing good ball.

Jonas Valanciunas, left, dominated early, putting up nine points and nine rebounds in little more than six minutes. Prior to the game, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue spoke about how unsafe the Raptors were despite those absences, a message that went unheard. "We've just got to find a way out of it". Until we play better defensively and offensively, until we share the basketball. Asked what helped to bring about Aldridge's resurgent 2017-18 campaign, Popovich deadpanned: "When he said, 'I want to be traded'".

"I think that was one of our advantages tonight, especially the second unit, was playing it fast when we were able to get stops", said VanVleet, who had forward Jakob Poeltl calling him the "GOAT", in the locker-room while guard Lorenzo Brown put the scrum on his Instagram story.

"We're a veteran team and we know what we're capable of, and it can't be so easy for us to get in those lulls and not try to dig ourselves out of them", Love said. "We will get out of it and we will get better".

One person killed during protests in Tunisia
Clashes between demonstrators and security forces have taken place in at least 20 cities and towns, The Guardian reports . The new financial year has also brought with it price hikes on some goods and increased taxes on imports.

The Timberwolves (27-16) lost in Boston, but they won at home over New Orleans, Cleveland and Oklahoma City. The reigning Eastern Conference champs allowed the Raptors to reach the 30-point mark in all four quarters. It makes the Raptors less predictable. It makes them more risky.

Right now, Cleveland will just have to address these internal issues at a later time as they have another game tomorrow against the 8-seeded Indiana Pacers to close out their forgettable 3-game road trip.

This Raptors game - a nationally televised affair against a playoff foe from the previous two seasons - would typically be the type of game the Dr. Jekyll Cavs would show up for.
