LeBron, Cavs concerned about Tyronn Lue's health


Despite this topsy-turvy nature of the Cavs, it's undeniable that LeBron James is balling out on an nearly nightly basis.

Asked Thibs yesterday how Derrick Rose's game has changed most since they were first together in his MVP season in Chicago.

He said: "I'm not sure exactly what it is".

As previously mentioned, it's been that kind of season for the Cavaliers where anything and everything has seemingly gone wrong for them. "Everything that's been going on with our year, it's just another one". He didn't coach on December 21 against Chicago (Cavs won) and didn't return for the second half on February 6 against the Magic (big loss).

Saturday was the third time this season that Lue has either left or missed a game due to an illness.

James would finish the game with another triple-double, scoring 33 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists.

James also said the Cavaliers have become accustomed to the uncertainty.

"I'm having a heck of a time playing the game right now no matter who's in the lineup for us", James said. The Chicago Bulls are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 76.3 percent from the free throw line. Just a catch and shoot 3.

Rookie Ante Zizic gave Cleveland 14 points and six boards in his second career start.

Kyle Korver's out for personal reasons, so Calderon's starting at point guard with George Hill at the two.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got back to winning ways on Saturday with a good win against the Chicago Bulls, but they did so for part of the game without their head coach in Tyronn Lue, and it's becoming concerning for some players.

Lue stayed in the locker room after halftiime with an undisclosed illness, putting the team in the hands of top assistant Larry Drew.

Chicago, which was warned last week by the National Basketball Association about tanking, had six players score in double figures.

To that end, Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and Robin Lopez were all out with bumps and bruises.
