  • Cavs trade Wade to Miami, overhaul roster

They didn't tank until everyone was back healthy.

When the Cavs when visit the free throw line here are some of the chants that they would hear: "Lebron will leave you", "Lebron will trade you", and my personal favorite, "Where are your teammates" directed towards Lebron.

"Coach Lue called up a great play", James said. I don't know, we'll see.

"I think he and his representation were very, very appreciative of that", Altman said.

London Perrantes and John Holland played limited roles to add depth to the temporarily short-handed roster. Korver hit 7 of 13 3-pointers in the runaway victory.

Thomas played just 15 games with Cleveland, averaging 14.7 points and 4.5 assists. He tied his career high in assists, last reached on December 12 against these same Hawks. It is his 10th triple double of the season which is second most in the National Basketball Association and it's the 65th triple double of his career which is fifth most in league history.

Payton is averaging a career-best 13.0 points per game and shooting a career-high 52 percent from the field, including 37 percent from deep.

It remains to be seen how the new-look Cavs will stack up against the rest of the league, but it's safe to say that (at least on paper), they're a much-improved squad. "There's no shade on anybody". One of the keys to pushing the lead even higher was the Hawks committing seven turnovers during the period.

Cedi Osman, a 22-year-old rookie making his first National Basketball Association start (he previously played professionally in Turkey), registered career highs in points (16), rebounds (six), assists (five) and minutes (39).

The last of Korver's daggers in that stretch came on a buzzer-beater and fueled the momentum for a fourth quarter that pushed the lead above 20 points. The eighth man was John Holland, who's on one of the franchise's two-way contracts.

Thomas, 29, said he didn't want to be traded after Wednesday night's home victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. "We knew we was gonna be shorthanded earlier this morning, at shootaround, so, we had our lineups, we had our guys and we were ready to go".

Newcomers George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and Rodney Hood joined the Cavs, but remained in the locker room during the game. General manager Koby Altman traded six players, including Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose, and two future draft picks in moves created to not only help them in the short term but could potentially help keep LeBron James beyond this season. The key figures were Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, Iman Shumpert and Dwyane Wade. They travel to Boston on Sunday and Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

It's something the Celtics hope falls apart, as they have the right to the Lakers' pick this year if it falls picks 2-5.

Wade, who signed with the Cavs in September following a buyout deal with the Chicago Bulls, is headed back to his old team in the Miami Heat, according to a report from ESPN.
