The Raptors are second in the East at 14-6 and riding a six-game winning streak. Do they finally have the Cavs attention? "Nah, they've had our attention," said LeBron James. "They've had our attention for the last couple years. I think they've had the NBA's attention. You don't need them playing well, us not playing well, or us playing well, them not playing well to get their attention. I think it's there."

LeBron James has 20 turnovers during the Cavs' three-game losing streak, upping his turnovers per game average to 4.2 per game -- fourth worst in the league, only better than Russell Westbrook (5.7), James Harden (5.5) and John Wall (4.5). "Just too many turnovers," James explained after shootaround Monday in Toronto. "Trying to make too many plays, trying to get my guys opportunities and keep them in rhythm. It costs me sometimes. I take full responsibility of that, but I'm not too much worried about that at all. Just got to be more careful with the ball, but it doesn't matter."

Don't know what Rajon Rondo did, but surely this suspension will lead to an intense period of self-reflection and personal growth.

The Cavs have lost three games in a row coming into Monday's game against Toronto, while the Raptors have won six straight. Does that make Cleveland the underdog at all? "Never the underdog, no," said Tyronn Lue at Cavs shootaround. "We lost a couple games, so what? We don't feel like the underdog though."

Bulls announce Rajon Rondo has been suspended for tonight's game versus Portland for conduct detrimental to the team.

During Toronto's six-game winning streak, 26 players are averaging more PPG than DeMar DeRozan, who was No. 2 in the NBA before this streak.

OKC big man Enes Kanter on the performance of Anthony Davis, who had 37 points in a loss to the Thunder: "He can't beat us just by himself. That's what a really special player does. Look at Russell [Westbrook], getting his stats, but making everybody else better. With them, he's done a good job, I don't want to say nothing bad about him. He's a good player. That's it."
