Cavs’ Tyronn Lue Planning on Resting Players This Week


With less than a month remaining in the regular season, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is preparing to start pulling players from the lineup for rest as soon as this week.

The Cavs — coming off a 3-1 road trip where tired legs contributed to a 94-85 loss on just 39.8 percent shooting in the finale in Utah on Monday — face a ferocious upcoming schedule.

“Three [games] in four nights,” said Lue. “Have a game and then leave again and have a back-to-back. So during that three-game stretch I will look to rest guys.”
