Teague injured his right wrist in the second half and coach Nate McMillan said the starting guard will undergo X-rays. When he has the mindset of attacking instead of settling for bad jump shots, there is no stopping the Cavaliers.

Amidst some controversial leaks suggesting some weird changes such as rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for the new iPhone, there's a fresh leak out of Foxconn, which assembles iPhones for Apple. The two corporations recently signed a two-year contract for billion which requires Samsung to ship between 70 and 92 million screen panels to Apple in 2017 alone. If Apple isn't beginning mass production on the iPhone 8 until October or November, they'll nearly certainly be hard to come by until early 2018. However, it seems fans wanting the all-new phone will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the iPhone 8. Also confirmed here for the iPhone 8 is dual rear cameras and even dual front cameras. The premium 5.8-inch handset is said to have a sensor behind the edge-to-edge bezel-less OLED display, and Apple is having issues incorporating the fingerprint sensor within the display.
Apple has not disclosed anything so far about the new iPhones or the about the launch date.
