Kyrie Irving Has Elevated His Game in Multiple Ways This Season

"I think we have to treat those games like they're afternoon games, and you don't play the night before".

Last Saturday, Golden State rested Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in a showdown on ABC between the league's top two teams in San Antonio.

Kevin Love also returned to the lineup - just his second game back after missing the previous 13 following left knee surgery - notching his first double-double since February 9, tallying 21 points and a game-high 15 boards in just under 26 minutes of work. You're going to have back-to-backs.

"We have to protect our product", Rivers said. "You're going to have certain games where certain things fall on certain nights, but a coach's job is to figure out a way for their team to compete for a championship, not compete for a game".

What (if anything) bothers you most about the Cleveland Cavaliers resting their star players? 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".

In a game that featured six lead changes and five ties, the Lakers could not hold onto a 106-104 lead in the final 4:31 amid fouls and missed shots. "Korver is legitimately injured, so you pick the game you're going to be the most competitive in and that's the one that 'Bron needs to play in". First, Lakers forward Julius Randle fouled Cleveland guard Kyrie Irving, who made two free throws to tie the game at 106-106.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' Big Three of LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving make almost as many headlines when they sit as they do when they play. "I really do. I hate it".

Of course, scheduling is one of the most hard jobs in basketball. So, don't sweat it too much if LeBron and company play a lot of minutes. "So I don't see a problem with people watching", LeBron said. On Friday, they come back East - wrapping up the trip in Charlotte against Kemba Walker and the Hornets.
