LeBron James Defends Tyronn Lue's Decision To Rest Him

In the home of the Hollywood blockbuster, it was only fitting that Sunday night would feature three of the league's brightest stars in a story that saw them overcome adversity for a dramatic finish. You need to protect the top guys from exhaustion.

James, Love and Irving took a seat for their game at the Staples Center, and LA, predictably, breezed to an 108-78 victory. There was never any doubt that they Cavs' Big Three would be active tonight, but it never hurts to confirm. I should've stopped playing on it a week and a half earlier.

Gary Harris tallied 17 points, Nikola Jokic 16 and Jameer Nelson 15 points and 11 assists for the Nuggets, who now lead Portland by 1 1/2 games for the No. 8 seed.

As he often does, Kyrie went into "Mr". LeBron James doesn't think so. Everybody has. Four in five nights are tough. "Kyrie didn't come back the game before, knee soreness, Kevin just had his first game back, we needed two days in between each game".

Kyrie Irving was the main man for three seasons as the Cavaliers struggled to even be a semi-decent team.

After Russell committed his only turnover of the night, Irving hit a go-ahead 3-pointer.

Portland led by 23 points just 10 minutes into the game and rolled to victory behind 27 points from Damian Lillard and 22 from CJ McCollum.

Monday could be Los Angeles native and former University High School alumni David Nwaba's final day with the Los Angeles Lakers, the team the West LA kid grew up cheering for.

One night after a cool-shooting performance by Cleveland's reserves, the Wine and Gold got back on track offensively on Sunday - shooting 53 percent from the floor, canning 13 three-pointers and handing out 19 assists in the win.

The Cavs will be staying in California to take on the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday night. The latest team to make one of those move was the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Leading up to Saturday, the highly anticipated game against the Cavs was seen as a must-win for the Clippers.

Russell is now averaging 15.3 points, 4.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Lakers, who are seemingly committed to getting their young core of players more playing time down the stretch of this lost season.

Quotable - Coach Tyronn Lue, on giving his guys rest on Saturday night ... I'm also a fan of the National Basketball Association in general and, being frank, the only reason we're still talking about this is because James, Irving and Love rested. Sometimes you have to understand it is not a show, but a competition. We did our job, and honestly, they did their job, too.
