LeBron James Hypes Up Larry Nance Jr. After Career Night

Cavs' JR Smith finds soup toss ban jokes 'pretty funny'

The main takeaway from the Cavaliers' 112-90 victory over the Detroit Pistons on March 5 is how history is repeating itself for the Cavaliers and Larry Nance. 'It's not just the guys at the (trade) deadline, it's all of us.

"I understand that everything I do is going to have a meme or whatever behind it - that's just part of the day and age we live in", Smith said at shootaround on Saturday in preparation for the Cavs' game against the Denver Nuggets.

James made five of seven shots from beyond the three-point arc and added seven rebounds and seven assists.

"They had it going tonight offensively, so we just tried to throw everything at them".

The Cavs opened the second quarter with a never-before-seen lineup of Calderon, Clarkson, Korver, Osman and Zizic and actually outscored the Pistons by two points in the three minutes that unit was on the floor, largely because those players defended. If he needs to provide 60-plus points of offense every game when factoring points and assists, then the Cavaliers have to make sure it accounts for less than 50 percent of their offense because it seems like they need at least 120 points to win.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone through a lot over the last couple of decades, being one of the league's laughingstocks before landing LeBron James, just to take another major downfall upon his departure, all the way to 3 consecutive Championship runs since his homecoming. The elder Nance had 149 20-point games for Cleveland. "Whatever it was, I just wasn't that comfortable shooting them in L.A".

Larry Nance Jr., son of former Cavs forward Larry Nance, joined the Cavs on February 8 in the roster-remaking trade deadline deals engineered by general manager Koby Altman.

Smith was suspended one game by the Cavaliers, and Saturday the temperamental guard addressed the latest drama in what has been a tumultuous season for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions.

Not only that, but head coach Tyronn Lue would give plenty of credit to the Nuggets. He was also impressed with how the 25-year-old performed on the court. "Whether it's the coaching staff or the guys, they have confidence in me". What it didn't know was that he could shoot the ball.

Nance is expected to have an elevated role for the Cavs in the coming days with Cleveland big men Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love out with injuries.

"Ain't got nothing to do with me", James said.
