Fear the Newsletter: The Cavs lost to the #TNTBulls and it was ugly

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Chicago Bulls David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs fell apart in the third quarter and lost to the #TNTBulls last night. And LeBron wanted nothing more than to get out of there after the game.

LEGEND HAS IT: No break comes for the Cavs, as the host the Philadelphia 76ers tonight as the start of a three-game homestand. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m.

ALL DUE RESPECT: Clippers 124, Suns 118. Blazes 117, Rockets 107. The Warriors, Spurs, Jazz, Celtics, Raptors and Wizards had the night off.

The Cavs are now a half game behind the Celtics, 1.5 games up on the Wizards and 2.5 games up on the Raptors.

JOB WELL DONE: LeBron is now seventh on the NBA's all-time scoring list. ESPN has David Griffin as the NBA's fifth best GM. Don't expect LeBron's minutes to be cut before the playoffs. Kyrie says the team's current struggles aren't being down 3-1. And Kevin Love says the Cavs will figure it all out.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. There's also a fun giveaway that just started.

CROWN: NY Mag has a great profile of Jenny Slate. The Ringer's Michael Baumann on why Mike Trout doesn't want to be baseball's LeBron. Bloomberg has a great feature up on why ESPN isn't into the future of TV. Gizmodo's Ashley Feinberg found James Comey's Twitter account. And ESPN's Sam Miller and Andrew Miller ending the tyranny of the save.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to and we'll talk again tomorrow.
