Cleveland'sJordan Clarkson added two free throws to push the lead to 121-113, the Cavs making five of six from the foul line in the last 36.3 seconds to seal the win. He played 25 minutes against Milwaukee. And they still have a head coach who prides himself on in-depth film studies and defense (an area this team needs to improve in). "It's tough", James said. "We will still do the things that he's implemented, that part of it I won't change". But the most remarkable thing about all of the chaos and drama that's engulfed the Cavaliers this season is that James hasn't missed a moment of it.
Rookie seven-footer Ante Zizic registered double-figures for the fourth time in his last five games - coming off the bench to tally 13 points on 4-of-6 shooting to go with six boards. Starting Love was a no-brainer.
The Cavaliers also welcomed back Kyle Korver, who sat out Cleveland's previous game to attend to a personal matter. Larry Nance Jr. (sore right hamstring), Rodney Hood (strained lower back), Cedi Osman (strained left hip flexor) and Tristan Thompson (sprained right ankle) were ruled out of Monday's game. It has been a rollercoaster season for Cleveland, but they appear on track to reach peak form at the right time.
"I was talking to myself when I was taking a shower".
James compared not having Lue on the sidelines to losing a teammate. He said the team's coaches and players would have to rise to the occasion in Lue's absence. Everyone has to step up. We have coaches in place that's ready for that challenge and we have to do our job as players as well.
Love's minutes was restricted in Cleveland's game Monday night against Milwaukee. "Like I said his health is most important and we look forward to when he comes back". Cavaliers' winning percentage (15-1) when they've topped the 120-mark this season.
