Cavaliers notebook: Defensive specialist Iman Shumpert will be counted on for more scoring

INDEPENDENCE: David Blatt and LeBron James have spent the past three months praising Iman Shumpert for his defense and counting anything he provides offensively as a bonus.Now all of that is changing.With J.R. Smith suspended for the first two games of the Eastern Conference semifinal series, which opens Monday against the Chicago Bulls, Shumpert is the likely starter at shooting guard for at least the first two games of this series.“I want everybody to be fair to Iman,” Blatt said. “He can score and he can put points on the board and we need him to do so given the situation we’re in...

Cavaliers vs. Bulls: How they match up

BackcourtCavsKyrie Irving averaged 21.3 points and 6.5 assists against the Bulls during the regular season. The only team he passed for more assists against was the Toronto Raptors. Irving will have to defend in this series the way he did for about three weeks in January and early February because Derrick Rose comes after him. Every time. The loss of J.R.

A practice that was scheduled to conclude around 1 p.m. ran more than two hours late for a handful of guys...
