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.

Can The Orlando Magic Keep up Their Electrifying Start? - 3 hours ago
The start to this NBA season has had plenty of talking points.

Pelicans rally after Cousins ejection, beat Thunder 114-107 - 5 hours ago
When DeMarcus Cousins (6'11''-C/F-90, college: Kentucky) got tossed, Anthony Davis (6'10''-C-93, college: Kentucky), Jrue Holiday (6'4''-PG-90, college: UCLA) and the rest of the New Orleans Pelicans locked in. Davis had 36 points and 15 rebounds, Holiday added 18 points, and New Orleans rallied after Cousins' ejection to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107 on Monday night. ''We didn't think it was that fair. He doesn't do anything intentional,'' Holiday said of Cousins, who was assess...   [read more]

Irving's 47 lead Celtics past Mavericks to maintain streak - 5 hours ago
Double-digit deficits are becoming just a minor annoyance to the Boston Celtics as they continue their winning ways. Kyrie Irving (6'3''-G-92, college: Duke) scored 10 of his season-high 47 points in overtime as the Celtics rallied from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Dallas Mavericks 110-102 on Monday night and extend their winning streak to 16 games. The winning streak ties the fourth-longest in franchise history, and for the third game in a row, Boston trailed by doubl...   [read more]
