Clippers' Doc Rivers laments the idea of resting players

SportsCenter's Twitter account tweets about Russell Westbrook Triple double on March 16

After losing to the Clippers, the Cavs travel to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

"I know", a rather conflicted Luke Walton said when NBCLA.com mentioned that Nwaba's second 10-day contract expired on Monday. "I think coaches are taking responsibility and looking out for our players and making sure they get proper rest", Lue said, via ESPN. Just last week, the Warriors made a decision to rest Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Iguodala against the San Antonio Spurs.

But LeBron James was not going to play on this night, and that produced some glum looks on the faces of fans who had paid premium prices to see one of the NBA's top stars in his only game in Los Angeles against the Clippers this season.

Coming back from a double-digit deficit at the start of the fourth quarter, the Cleveland Cavaliers needed all of the combined 101 points supplied by Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Kevin Love to emerge with a hard-fought 125-120 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Sunday night.

Those same fans should get at least at 50 percent discount from the home team's owner on a night any star is resting.

Fundamentally at issue is who is to be served by a coach's decision to sit or start his stars. The Knicks are one of the worst defensive teams in the National Basketball Association, allowing 108.6 points per game, ranking them 25. "I really do. I hate it". You can't go into the game with the same mentality as you did last game, as far as where you're going to find your spots or how you're how going to guard a certain player. "You've got a different team every time you play, so everybody has to do something different".

The report says Brady's Super Bowl XLIX jersey from two years ago was taken by the same person who took the Super Bowl LI jersey. Six weeks also passed since Brady's Super Bowl jersey was stolen by someone in the Patriots locker room.

"We need to treat these ABC games like afternoon games where you don't play the night before", Rivers said.

Up Next - Now halfway through their four-game roadie, the Wine and Gold head for the Rockies next - traveling to Denver to take on Mike Malone's Nuggets on Wednesday night.

The Cavs should get a chance to beat a pretty bad team here as well. What about the league itself-and where, exactly, does the NBA's interests lie in the long term?

DeAndre Jordan had 13 points and 17 rebounds and J.J. Redick scored 16 points for the Clippers (41-29), who have a half-game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder (40-29) for the No. 5 seed in the NBA's Western Conference.

The NFL has taken some flak in recent years for overextending its television schedule by adding extra nights of coverage and forcing teams to play on short weeks.
