CAVALIERS Cleveland Cavaliers G J.R. Smith says spending time with therapy dog gave him boost Thursday Swish and Remi have become BFFs

   Cleveland Cavaliers G J.R. Smith says spending time with therapy dog gave him boost Thursday        Swish and Remi have become BFFs

I am going to use this time to focus on a prescribed routine and medication, which has previously been hard to start in the midst of a season.

James finished with 27 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, adding another stellar performance to his MVP-worthy 15th National Basketball Association season.

The injury came after Hill went scoreless in the first half before scoring eight points in the opening four minutes of the third quarter.

So, what took J.R.'s game to the next level?

The Cavaliers had hit 7-of-10 (70 percent) from the field to start the game, but cooled off considerably over the rest of the first quarter, connecting on just 5-of-13 (38 percent) in that area.

Cavs shooting guard Rodney Hood averaged 14.7 points on Cleveland's recent three-game road trip. The Cavaliers have been travelling a little better and they looked great in their win over the Hornets as James flirted with another triple-double while Smith broke out of a shooting slump with 19 points off the bench.

The New Orleans Pelicans crushed the Cavaliers earlier in the season, 123-101, but that was against a Cavs team that was generating apocalyptic headlines at the time and a Pelicans team that boasted a twin tower lineup with DeMarcus Cousins and Antonio Davis. While Holiday has scored 62 points in his last two home games versus the Cavaliers, he has not played well at Cleveland of late. "I can't even tell you how I've been able to do it". Kevin Love who was sidelined for the game also gave the therapy dog rave reviews.

Lue would last reside on the sidelines during Cleveland's March 17 win over the Chicago Bulls. But, Lue's championship pedigree as both a player and a coach is still an advantage for the Cavaliers. He had been dealing with numerous cases of insomnia and chest pain.

For the Cleveland Cavaliers, that characterization took on a literal definition Wednesday, when the Cavs' head athletic trainer, Steve Spiro, arranged for the team to spend time with a golden retriever named Remington, the University of North Carolina baseball team's service dog.
