LeBron James is not expecting too much out of Tristan Thompson too soon, as the big man returns from a six-week absence this week. "He has to get his wind back, he has to get his rhythm back," James said. "I don't think it's gonna be like, right now, boom. So, um, but we're happy to have him back for sure. He's a big piece of our team. He's going to be a big piece of our team long term. We've got to get him back, get him integrated to what we're doing."

LeBron James says he's "probably" playing more center this season than he has in his 15-year career. He says 8-9 years ago he couldn't have envisioned this, but once he joined the Heat, it became a part of his repertoire. "When I went to Miami it was 1 through 5," James said. "After our first year in Miami Spo (Erik Spoelstra) was like, ‘Let's 1 through 5, whatever I need you to do, we've got to try to make it happen.' I played 1 through 5 a lot down there."

It took until 3:22 left in the fourth quarter for the LA Clippers to get their first lead in the second half against the Toronto Raptors, who led by as many as 13 points tonight. But once the Clippers got the lead, they did not relinquish it. A clutch three by returning rookie Milos Teodosic, as well as 17 rebounds from DeAndre Jordan and a 22-5 advantage on second chance points, allowed the Clippers to pull an upset and beat the Raptors 96-91 to snap Toronto's win streak at six games.

Montrezl Harrell blocked a DeMar DeRozan floater out of bounds, but came down wrong and appeared to hurt his leg. He was down for a few moments, but is up and shaking it off. A break for a Clippers team that could use it.
