Cavs rest Big 3 again, lose 108-78 to Los Angeles Clippers - Mar 19, 2017

Blake
Griffin
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said all there really was to say about this one before it even started. "Sorry, ABC." For the third time this season, the Cavs played without LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love Saturday night. It went how you'd think: a 108-78 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center. Blake Griffin (6'10''-F-89, college: Oklahoma) led all scorers with 23 points and DeAndre Jordan (6'11''-C-88, college: Texas A&M) contributed 13 points and 17 rebounds. The Cavs were led by Richard Jefferson (6'7''-F/G-80, college: Arizona)'s 12 points and received 10 or 11 points from six others. Kyle Korver (sore left foot) didn't play either. It means Cleveland's top four scorers were unavailable -- precisely what ABC had in mind for its weekly Saturday night "marquee" NBA game. Reminder, TV networks paid the league $24 billion to show these games (not just on Saturdays, but you get the idea). What'd ABC pay for this time? The Cavs scored their fewest points this season and in the first half (31 points), undercutting their old marks of 85 for a game and 36 for a half -- both set the first time they sat their Big 3 from the same game (Dec. 14 at Memphis). Cleveland is now 0-3 when it sits Love, Irving, and James, 0-6 when James sits this season, and 4-21 without him since the start of the 2014 season. The Cavs' lead over Boston for first in the East is down to 1.5 games with 14 to play. Lue chose to sit his Big 3 because Love wasn't going to play on consecutive nights -- Cleveland plays the Lakers Sunday -- and Irving probably shouldn't after experiencing knee soreness in Thursday's win over Utah. Rather than wear down James or stunt the overall growth of the team (the thinking being if everyone sits at the same time, there is no interruption in chemistry), Lue wanted to get it over with Saturday. "For me it's tough because we started to get in a good rhythm defensively, offensively and the biggest thing is if they play tomorrow (against the Lakers) then everybody will be back and we can kind of start building, everybody will be building going forward," Lue said. "So if they were to play tonight, Kevin is out and then it's tomorrow. So just kind of having our whole team back together tomorrow will be big for us but every time we seem to catch a rhythm or get something good going, something happens." We already mentioned the TV networks' footing the bill for these glorified jayvee games (remember, last week Warriors coach Steve Kerr sat Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala out of the ABC game against San Antonio). The fans would argue they didn't get their money's worth, either. A loud chant of "We want LeBron" broke out at Staples Center during the first half. Sunday, folks. Sunday James will play here. "I want him, too," Lue said. Then again, Cleveland still put on the floor a lineup of accomplished NBA vets. Deron Williams (11 points) is a former All-Star. Fans throughout the league know J.R. Smith (6'6''-G-85) (10 points, 4-of-17 shooting) and Tristan Thompson (6'9''-F-91, college: Texas) (11 points) and Iman Shumpert (10 points) and Channing Frye (10 points). Kay Felder also scored 10. It's just, their roles here are to support James, Irving and Love. Not replace them. Against a fully functioning Clipper team, even one that seemed about as interested in this one early on as the Cavs' deep thinkers, well, it's just not going to work. Shumpert, by the way, was playing after spraining his left shoulder Thursday. Lue said Irving could've played Saturday despite his injury. Lue said he was "was very surprised," Shumpert could play, but "that's who he is. "That's why we call him bionic man," Lue said. "He's ready to go, he's ready to play, so that's a good sign for us." Smith's jumper at the buzzer gave the Cavs a 16-14 lead after one quarter. Fourteen points are the fewest Cleveland has allowed in the first quarter all season.

Leonard scores 25 as Spurs dismantle ailing Cavs, 103-74 - 9 hours ago
The Cavaliers acknowledged having heavy legs, but there is something far weightier on the minds of the defending NBA champions. Cleveland is in the midst of one of its worst stretches of the season and there is little time to fix it. Kawhi Leonard (6'7''-F-91, college: San Diego St.) scored 25 points and the San Antonio Spurs dismantled the ailing Cavs 103-74 on Monday night in a showdown that turned into a major letdown for Cleveland. "The way we've been struggling, (the Spurs are) the l...   [read more]

Jazz beat Pelicans 108-100 behind Gobert, hot shooting - 9 hours ago
Rudy Gobert (7'1''-C-92) had 20 points, 19 rebounds and five blocks to lead the Utah Jazz over the New Orleans Pelicans 108-100 on Monday night. Rodney Hood (6'8''-F-92, college: Duke) scored 20 points, Joe Ingles (6'8''-SF-87) added 19 and George Hill chipped in with 17 as that Jazz trio combined to make a dozen 3-pointers. Utah (45-29) swept the season series 3-0 after dominating from the perimeter for four quarters. Anthony Davis (6'10''-C-93, college: Kentucky) had 36 points and 17 re...   [read more]

Westbrook, Thunder top Mavs 92-91 with 14-0 finishing run - 10 hours ago
Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA) rescued Oklahoma City with a stunning rally and guaranteed the first losing record for Dallas in 17 full seasons under owner Mark Cuban. Westbrook hit a pull-up jumper with seven seconds left and the Thunder erased a 13-point deficit in the final four minutes for a 92-91 victory over the Mavericks on Monday night. The six-time All-Star and current NBA scoring leader, whom Cuban steadfastly claims isn't a superstar, had his third straight trip...   [read more]
