"Maybe I got to protect myself a little bit more, too," James said after the Cavs' 120-112 win over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.
"I don't want to get too much involved in it because I don't want to cry about it because it's not like I'm not able to get back up, but it's a lot of plays that are just not basketball plays," said James, who was kicked in the groin Sunday by Houston's James Harden, resulting in a one-game suspension for the Rockets swingman.

In his latest act, which came on a frigid but otherwise ho-hum Wednesday night, against a ho-hum opponent, Westbrook erupted for 49 points, a career-high 16 rebounds and 10 assists in a 123-118 overtime victory over Philadelphia inside Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Westbrook became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to register four straight triple-doubles. Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Maurice Stokes are the only other players in NBA history to record four straight triple-doubles.

“Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me,” Allen said. “I’ve ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season. I’m going to take the remainder of this season, as well as the upcoming off-season, to reassess my situation, spend time with my family and determine if I will play in the 2015-16 season.”

After more digging into the issue, Allen’s physical confrontation was apparently with Calathes during practice. Frustration clearly is building with the team playing poorly and the starting unit lacking consistent and forceful play.
