The Cavaliers considered sitting LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love against the Warriors

The Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Golden State in a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day NBA Finals rematch, but a game-time decision nearly robbed fans of the full experience. League sources told ESPN that some within the Cavaliers' organization briefly pondered sitting out the trio, but the desire to improve and gain valuable repetition against one of the NBA's elite teams trumped that logic.

Kyrie Irving, Cavaliers struggling to find offensive rhythm

PORTLAND, ORE.: It’s not for a lack of effort. After all, Kyrie Irving has been on the floor early for extra shots prior to each of the Cavaliers’ last three morning shootarounds. But coach Tyronn Lue believes Irving has been out of rhythm since he missed three games with a hamstring injury and Irving’s struggles illustrate a greater issue plaguing the Cavs right now. Irving is mired in a 9-of-34 slump in his last two games, while both he and Lue thought Irving passed up shots during Wednesday’s 102-86 loss at Portland that he would normally take. Irving countered that he scored 32...
