With the No. 1 seed in the East locked up a couple of days ago, the Cleveland Cavaliers came into Wednesday’s 112-110 overtime loss against the Detroit Pistons with a simple plan: Don’t have anything stupid happen.

With that in mind, the Cavs’ public relations staff informed reporters after the shootaround Wednesday morning that nearly half the team — LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Mo Williams — would be sitting out the regular-season finale later that evening.
