Ready or not, here come the playoffs for the Cleveland Cavaliers. “Well, it’s here now,” Lue said of the postseason on Wednesday. “All the talking is over, what we can do and what we’re going to do. It’s here. So, we got to put up or shut up.”
“I feel good,” Lue said. “As long as we’re healthy, I think we can win. So, health is the most important thing. We chased the No. 1 seed; we lost two games to Hawks that we should’ve won, but we didn’t. So now we’re here. It’s going to be a tough road, whether you’re first seed, second seed or third seed. The Eastern Conference had gotten better, and we understand that. And we have to play better, so we understand that. The challenge is here, and we’re up for the challenge.”
