Doc Rivers: 'Not Cool' for Cavs to Rest Stars

"I hate it for the fans", continued Rivers. "I feel when I'm at the pace, it goes well for my teammates".

Turning Point - After sticking with the Bucks on Friday night, the scrappy Lakers were determined to test the World Champs on Sunday - and for three-and-a-half quarters, they looked poised to pull off the upset. He had 16 points after checking in for the final time with 8:26 left, sparking a game-ending 28-18 run.

The Lakers never led again as the Cavs - who shot 72 percent in the period - pulled away for the win.

The Cavs' decision came one week after the Golden State Warriors opted to rest Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green for their match with the San Antonio Spurs. The NBA called GM David Griffin to complain. However, the collective performance seemed to be an endorsement of the team's decision.

"I know we're not playing great right now", Doc Rivers said before the win against Cleveland.

Well, the Big Three were back in action Sunday as they combined to score 101 of the Cavs' 125 points against the Lakers. While Griffin defends that everyone except for one player on the roster were "reasonably injured" heading into last night's contest, the decision didn't sit well with a number of people, including former National Basketball Association head coach and current ESPN/ABC color commentator Jeff Van Gundy, who said the Cavs sitting their Big 3 should be a "prosecutable offense".

With the exception of Russell, the Cavaliers held the Lakers to 25 percent shooting from the field during the opening quarter. "They're getting ripped off here tonight". When we get to LA and play teams like this, we consider it a show instead of a competition. "God bless my mouth guard".

You are nearly guaranteed a triple-double when All-Star Westbrook takes to the court but he fell just short on Saturday. "Then, he put in some old school braces that'll be in there for a few weeks".

Russell has averaged 15.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.4 steals in 27.6 minutes per game this season.
