LeBron James, Kevin Love, and Kyrie Irving are all likely to sit for the Cleveland Cavaliers, head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters following his team’s 132-117 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.
“I’m not sure yet. It’s a good possibility,” Lue said, according to the Akron Beacon Journal’s Jason Lloyd. “We’ll see how the guys feel. When we’re playing good like this, guys might want to play. We’ll just see how they feel.”
Thursday marks the fourth game in six nights for Cleveland, all of which have been on the road. The team is riding a four-game winning streak, with wins in six of their last seven.
“We know what we got. We know what we’re doing,” James said. “If Coach Lue decides to sit us, that’s fine. We’ll be ready to go the next game if he decides to sit us.”
Iman Shumpert has already been ruled out due to a sprained ankle, so if Lue elects to sit his three top guys, he’ll only have eight players to roll with in Oklahoma City.
