Indeed, when asked if he could hear the Cavaliers fans chanting for James.

Lue's decision to align his stars' rest was understandable and standard practice in a league whose coaches have increasingly embraced rest for strategic purposes. The young team is determined, athletic, performs well. You guessed it - as Kyrie Irving was absolutely unconscious on his way to 46 points.

Russell also was the youngest player since LeBron James to finish with at least 40 points, six assists and one or fewer turnovers. The man went 15-of-21 from the floor. The problem was that Russell was 6-for-8 from the field, including 4-of-5 from long-range, which helped him contribute 18 points during the period.

Lue said that both James and Love would take the court on Sunday. But more on that in a minute.

HIGHLIGHTS: D'Angelo Russell sets a new career-high in points with 40, connecting from downtown seven times. On the contrary, Silver has long advocated for player health and wellness, leaving his hands tied to a degree on this issue.

While Saturday Primetime has delivered some great games, including Golden State's classic overtime win at the buzzer in Oklahoma City previous year, recent matchups have been diluted by injuries and rest. But the overall landscape affords coach Luke Walton leeway to tinker with lineups without risking the nightly outcome.

He added, "It's been a great experience, just helping me build confidence and knowing I can play at this level". "It wasn't nice to look at, but I was just happy to get out here with a win". He'd be a hard prospect to pass up. "He makes shots, but you just have to try and make it as tough as you can". "But we prepare our bodies for it and I don't have any ill will toward the National Basketball Association being disappointed, or the fans because I totally understand". As LeBron told reporters in LA of Magic's hiring: "I have nothing to do with the Lakers, so I have no reaction".

"He said he's supporting me", Russell said.

In a recent nationally televised marquee Saturday night matchup between Golden State and San Antonio, the league's two best teams, the Warriors rested stars Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala, and Kevin Durant didn't play because of a knee injury.

Jusuf Nurkic provided him with all the support he needed, with a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds.

The Cleveland Cavaliers handed the Los Angeles Clippers a gift on Saturday.
