After the Cavaliers’ 127-115 home loss to the Wizards on Saturday night, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue claimed to have something up his sleeve to fix the team’s porous defense.
While the Cavs, who are 6-8 in the month of March, have watched their lead over the Celtics for the No. 1 seed in the East dwindle to a half-game, Lue said he doesn’t want to implement his plan too early. Postseason preparedness is of higher priority than home-court advantage over Boston, apparently.
The Warriors and Thunder face each other again Monday after meeting just a month prior. Heading into that game, the Warriors reportedly were “furious and bewildered” there wasn’t more done to relieve the tension that was a result of Durant’s first time back to OKC, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
Haynes wrote: “The Warriors’ belief, according to sources, is that the Thunder’s silence contributed to the raw emotions, outrage and indignation that created an unsettling, hostile atmosphere for a player many consider to be the franchise’s all-time best.”
Stephen Curry also refuted the report by discussing it in broader terms.
“This league is a very interesting place all the way through. Certain Cheap MLB Baseball Jerseys stories that don’t need to see the light of day, don’t need to have any life kind of breathed into them, are somehow the most popular. It’s kind of how it goes,” he said. “To me it’s kind of comical. Just what can be put on a spotlight during an 82-game year, and at the end of the day we’re all just trying to win Cheap NBA Basketball Jerseys games and enjoy what we do for a living and that’s it.”
