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.

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.
