Kevin Love has awkward moment in return to Cleveland Cavaliers

Lue and Drew were both hired to David Blatt's staff for the 2014-15 season, and Drew was elevated to associate head coach after Lue took over for Blatt in January, 2016. "We're going to miss Ty, but what we're doing is going to be very similar". Lue isn't even sure of the exact nature of his ailment despite undergoing a battery of tests, and his condition and accompanying sleep deprivation have been worsening as the season has progressed.

It was an upbeat ending to a hard day, with the Cavs announcing earlier that head coach Tyronn Lue was taking some time off to deal with health concerns.

LeBron James enjoyed a historic night on Monday as the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar became the third-oldest player in league history to record a triple-double while scoring at least 40 points. "And I'll never forget when I first saw him, I had to take a trip to Europe, to Estonia, to see him", Drew said. According to multiple sources close to the situation, there had been deliberation about stepping aside earlier this season, but Lue did not want to appear to be bailing on his team while it careened through a post-Christmas stretch that was littered with losses.

Starting James, Jeff Green, Love, Kyle Korver and Hill, the Cavs (41-29) also got great efforts from rookie backup center Ante Zizic (13 points, six rebounds) and reserve guard Clarkson (17 points), who were on the floor to start the fourth period when Cleveland extended an eight-point lead to 14 with James resting. The forward scored 18 points in 25 minutes.

They were followed by another group of about a dozen counterdemonstrators, including some who chanted, "NRA is the only way!" In Pennsylvania , Wisconsin and Texas, some lawyers said they will provide free legal help to students who are punished.

James said he wasn't surprised. "For me that doesn't change". Expect the marvelous Giannis Antetokounmpo to look to exploit Love whenever they're one-on-one or in late help situations when Antetokounmpo beats his man. Antetokounmpo plays more of a wing/guard than Love, but the two are about the same size and should tangle. He said the team's coaches and players would have to rise to the occasion in Lue's absence.

Much of the focus was on Love returning but by the end of the night, we were once again marvelling at the greatness of LeBron as he put on another masterclass. "I'll talk to Ty". We have coaches in place that's ready for that challenge and we have to do our job as players as well. Right now, Cleveland is playing.500 basketball throughout the span of the last 10 games. That's the most important thing is his health.

With 12 games remaining in the regular season, the Cavaliers have plenty of questions left unanswered.
