Where does Cleveland begin to turn things around? The defense, Lue said. After tying a franchise record for defensive futility by allowing the Thunder to score 148 points in regulation on Sunday — the fifth time in the past seven games the Cavs have allowed at least 118 points– Lue said his team’s hope for improvement starts with getting stops.
I think you start with transition defense, Lue said. I think you start with pick-and-roll defense. I think you start with individual, one-on-one defense. But we just got to be better collectively, and until that starts to happen, the [lack of] trust and things like that are going to happen like it did [against Oklahoma City].
One way Lue pledged to change his team would be to hold more practices while they try to turn the season around. Sunday’s practice was their third this week.

I think with Tristan [Thompson] trying to still get in better shape from missing time, with [Derrick] Rose, with Shump [Iman Shumpert], with IT, they need it, Lue said. They’re not going to really get up to speed by just playing games. So we need more practices, and that’s why we’ve been doing it as of late.
If you look at some of the details on the outsole, we’ve got mom and pops on the back in the rubber, Howie Long Womens Jersey Hardman said. That’s really all about his parents being behind him no matter what. Then, you’ve got his sisters’ initials on the toes of the shoe, because they were really the catalysts for him to want to excel at basketball and inspired him.
Rodgers, the Packers’ standout quarterback, is expected to be in the lineup Sunday against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte after being sidelined for two months because of a broken collarbone. Other NFL teams wish they were as fortunate.

Watt and Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman.
Former general manager Bill Polian, the Hall of Fame executive for the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts, was asked earlier this season how long the window for a contending team to sign Kaepernick as a prospective season-saving measure would remain open.
It’s probably open until Week 8 or a little beyond that, Polian said. It would take you two to three weeks to get ready.
Week 10 begins Thursday night.
