Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue has no reservations about playing LeBron James 43.8 minutes per game in his team’s first-round sweep of the Indiana Pacers and, in fact, believes other coaches should ride their stars more in the postseason.

“Of course, we’re always cognizant of LeBron’s minutes, but in looking at this situation, we didn’t look at the minutes as an issue,” Lue told ESPN. “It makes more sense to close out the series and have the additional rest versus playing potentially even more minutes, potentially 96-144 more minutes. Closing out and the rest that comes with it far outweighs the other potential scenario.”

Golden State Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant acknowledged a controversial Twitter incident and apologized for comments that were critical of his former team and coach, calling the tweets “idiotic” and “childish.”

“I use Twitter to engage with the fans,” Durant said Tuesday from the stage of the TechCrunch Disrupt event in San Francisco. “I think it’s a great way to engage with basketball fans. But I happened to take it a little too far. That’s what happens sometimes when I get into these basketball debates about what I really love: to play basketball.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
