The Cavs have now won six in a row after Friday night’s win over Brooklyn at The Q.
The former Kent State walk-on defensive back was 14-45 overall. His best season was his first, in 2013, when his team went 4-8 and 3-5 in the Mid-American Conference.
The Jaguars (7-3) built a 10-0 lead and turned things over to their “Sacksonville” defense. The Jaguars intercepted rookie DeShone Kizer twice, recorded five sacks and blanked the Browns (0-10) in the second half.
Behind 39 points and 14 boards from LeBron James, the Cavs came back to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 118-113 in overtime at The Q Friday night.
Kevin Love scored a season-high 32 points, LeBron James added 30 and the Cleveland Cavaliers withstood a 40-point performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 124-119 on Tuesday night.
Thomas has been increasing the intensity of his workouts and is making strong progress in his recovery from a serious hip injury that ended his 2016 season in Boston and delayed his debut with Cleveland.
The Indians have declined their $7 million option on reliever Boone Logan, who will receive a $1 million buyout.
For the second straight year they’ve reached the midway point of the season 0-8. They’re now 1-23 under coach Hue Jackson and a numbers-crunching front office led by Sashi Brown, whose decision to tear down a roster to its foundation has to this point proven foolish.
He was injured in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s loss to Indiana and left Quicken Loans Arena on crutches. The team said he had an MRI on Thursday and is projected to return in three to four weeks.
Shumpert is in his fourth season with Cleveland, which acquired him during the 2014-15 season in a trade with the Knicks.
