Isaiah Thomas admits he expected to go through his recent struggles

Isaiah Thomas admits he expected to go through his recent struggles

The Warriors have won six of their last seven matchups against the Cavaliers dating back to the Martin Luther King Jr.

Here's how to watch Cavs vs. Warriors online. He made his Cavaliers' debut on January 2 at The Q against the Portland Trail Blazers - a game the Cavs won after three straight losses.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue is also trying to figure out his rotation with both Thomas and forward/center Tristan Thompson healthy again.

Thomas has only played in 4 games since being activated after recovering from a right hip injury and the results have been mixed.

"We know that. But until we play better defensively, I think offensively sharing the basketball, everyone on the same page, and if guys have agendas, we've got to get rid of our agendas and play the right way". "I knew it was going to be like this". "I have no legs". So now I've got to work. That's when coach calls me in the game, go out and play hard and compete.

"The shots were going in, but none of my movements, none of the things I usually do felt normal", Thomas said. So it's killing me be, I'm used to stepping on the court and being special. At some point throughout a season, no matter how much went well before or after, the Cavs are going to struggle. They lost Game 4 by 21 in Cleveland and then returned to Oakland to win Game 5 by nine for the gentleman's sweep.

It's common to dismiss Cleveland's 26-16 record and the causes for it by saying the Cavs don't worry about the regular season because when the whether warms, so will they. They are third in the NBA East and get to play the 35-9 Warriors at The Q, where the Cavaliers have won 13 straight.

"Be able to attack, scoring the basketball", Lue said of Thomas's expected role versus Golden State.

"Hit the reset button. We want to come out and play well, we want to defend, we want to make shots obviously and hopefully rewrite the ship". A Steph Curry-less Golden State team dropped the Wine & Gold, 99-92, back on Christmas Day - with Kevin Durant finishing with 25 points and five blocks, Draymond Green notching a triple-double and the Warriors as a team holding the Cavs to a season-low 32 percent shooting.

Cavaliers injury report: PG Derrick Rose (left ankle sprain) and SG Iman Shumpert (left knee arthroscopic surgery) are out. In a Players Tribune video published in December Thomas revealed his anger at learning from Ainge that he would be going to the Cavaliers, with Irving headed the opposite way.

The Warriors ended a two-game homestand with a surprising loss to the Los Angeles Clippers as 12-point favorites last Wednesday before bouncing back with back-to-back road wins over Milwaukee and Toronto.
