LeBron On Player Rest

Doc Rivers calls on NBA to reduce back-to-back games

Doc Rivers calls on NBA to reduce back-to-back games

Their game against the Lakers, who play in the same arena as the Clippers, was the second of back-to-back games. Cleveland general manager David Griffin said that the league office contacted him after the Clippers game and they were "not happy". If you were able to get second place, you still have to beat us and I think (teams) understand who we are and we know who we are. "There are some times guys have to rest, and some guys need rest".

"But coach's job is to figure out a way to get a team to compete for a championship, and not compete for a game".

"There is a fan base that probably bought tickets tonight to see LeBron James play for the first time", Rivers said. "I really do. But it is what it is for us from an injury standpoint", Griffin said. If they played, there would be noticeably less conversation.

What (if anything) bothers you most about the Cleveland Cavaliers resting their star players? Or should fans expect superstars to play every night? And I did it the other night in Denver. We did our job, and honestly, they did their job, too.

He's on pace to average the most minutes per game (37.6) since he averaged 37.7 in 2014 and he's already had 15 games with more than 40 minutes played.

For Love, the rest may have been more necessary than anyone else. "Because Kyrie didn't come back the game before because of knee soreness, Kevin just had his first game back and he needed two games between these games".

The government's proposal reflects many of his campaign promises, including that the wall be tall and "beautiful". Height: The structure has to be "physically imposing", suggesting a height of 30 feet.

San Antonio, who had won 11 of their previous 13 games, got 22 points from Kawhi Leonard and 21 from LaMarcus Aldridge. He's back to being a 20-point, 10-rebound guy and those are scarce. And his minutes are back above 35 a night after being just 31.5 last season.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said the Cavaliers' decision to rest LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love for the big Saturday night game against the Clippers was "not cool", while ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy was a little less measured, calling it a "prosecutable offence". Then the prodigy, LeBron James, returned to win a title in his home city.

Regardless of where you stand on the issue of coaches periodically resting their players, there is a real concern about a team ensuring that they have their most talented athletes at or near full health for a successful playoff push. Would it be easier to amend that?

Does the National Basketball Association have a problem with featured games becoming prime-time flops when star players sit out for rest?

The Lakers, at the bottom of the Western Conference, absorbed their fifth straight loss and 50th in 70 games even as D'Angelo Russell came up with a fine game.

Nothing is saying that it'll work but what's wrong with testing.
