Delon Wright plays just 18 minutes Thursday in Raptors' win

The Cleveland Cavaliers watched a 22-point first-quarter lead evaporate and suffered their third consecutive loss as they dropped a 97-95 decision to the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday night.

Our early models for Saturday project Wright for 20.0 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,700.

Thompson, who is due $36 million over the next two seasons, is now averaging just 5.3 points and 5.7 rebounds in 19 minutes of action per game. The Raptors, looks like the best Raptors team of this era, with DeMar DeRozan playing at an all-star level.

Stephenson shot 6 of 11 (54.5%) from the field and 3 of 6 from deep in the win.

The Cavaliers (26-15) will play the second of back-to-back games Friday night at IN (21-20). Lowry was sidelined with a bruised tailbone, Ibaka suspended one game by the league for fighting in Monday's loss to the Miami Heat. The Cavs were 7 of 34 from 3-point range and wound up shooting 43 percent overall after shooting 59.1 percent in the first quarter.

The Golden State Warriors look for another victory after winning eight of their last 10 games.

Jaylen Brown added 21 points, and Marcus Morris had 19 points and eight rebounds to help the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics extend their winning streak to seven games.

A 2-time first-team All-NBA defender, the 6-foot-11 Jordan could provide a massive defensive upgrade to a Cavs team that now ranks second-to-last in the league in defensive efficiency.

Fast transitions, three-point shooting and rapidly switching on defence are hallmarks of a Golden State team that has gone to the NBA Finals three straight years and won the title twice. Nope. He had four points in 25 minutes on Thursday night. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and Draymond Green is grabbing 7.8 rebounds.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points and the Warriors used a 13-4 run in the fourth quarter to down the Bucks 108-94. Yet, the grumbling only makes the Cavs more likely to lose more.

Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade did not play for Cleveland, each getting a rest.

Hood was forced to leave Wednesday's game against Washington after receiving a second technical foul. In the first quarter he was 0-for-6, making him 2-for-18 in that period in his four games, including 0-for-8 on 3-pointers. The Cavs, since LeBron has been back to Cleveland, have played 14, 14, 13. After the game against the Raptors on Thursday, head coach Tyronn Lue suggested the Cavaliers might be struggling because guys on the team have "agendas".

"They're still a good team, they still play hard, the young guys play hard", Lue said in pregame. Nikola Jokic added 14 points and nine rebounds for Denver, which played without guard Gary Harris, who was excused for personal reasons.

"We just haven't been doing that as of late".
