Tristan Thompson ejected, Cleveland Cavaliers lose heated game against Memphis Grizzlies 113-109
Author: Chris Fedor

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have had plenty of issues in the fourth quarter this season. On Friday night, their problems started before that.

As emotions from the first half boiled over into the third quarter, the Cavs lost their cool. Then their way. Then, ultimately, they lost the game.

The Grizzlies extended their winning streak to seven games, the longest currently in the NBA and their longest since 2015, beating Cleveland 113-109 and avenging an earlier loss against the 12-win Cavs. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

Cleveland Cavaliers’ flight delayed, team stuck in Memphis overnight because of bad Chicago snowstorm

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Instead of hopping on the team bus to the airport immediately following Friday night’s frustrating 113-109 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the usual protocol for teams when playing back-to-backs, the Cleveland Cavaliers went down the street -- to one of the nearby Memphis hotels, where they will spend yet another night.

A nasty snowstorm in Chicago delayed the Cavs’ Friday night travel plans. They are stuck in Memphis, expected to leave around 10 a.m. ET Saturday morning -- if the weather cooperates. Despite the travel issues, the Cavs are still scheduled to play in Chicago, the final stop on this lengthy and grueling six-game road trip, Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET.

NBA teams are required to fly to the next city immediately after the first game on back-to-backs. But this was out of their hands. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

Tristan Thompson ejected for ‘butt slap’ of Jae Crowder, plans to appeal
Author: Chris Fedor

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Cleveland athletes are having an awfully difficult time keeping their hands to themselves these days. Only this incident didn’t lead to an arrest warrant, only an ejection.

Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson was tossed out of Friday’s game late in the third quarter of the 113-109 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Thompson had just made his first free throw to cut Memphis’ one-time 21-point advantage to 12. As Jae Crowder, Thompson’s former teammate and opponent-irritant, walked by to get subbed out of the game, Thompson attempted to smack Crowder on the backside while the Grizzlies forward tried to fend off Thompson’s hand. The official closest to the action, Evan Scott, initially let it go before J.T. Orr noticed, blew his whistle, handed Thompson a second technical and sent him off the floor.
