INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Cavaliers coaches, front-office members, and support staff are gathering Thursday at coach Tyronn Lue’s house in Bay Village to watch the franchise’s next playoff opponent.
The Cavs don’t yet know who they will play in the Eastern semifinals next week, but the two candidates — Toronto and Milwaukee — will play in Game 6 of their first-round series Thursday evening.
Lue said approximately 60 to 70 members of the organization, but apparently not the players, will gather at his scenic, spacious home along Lake Road for the game and to eat. The team’s chef will be at the Lue mansion cooking up the food. – CLICK HERE to read full story.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Believe it or not, Kyrie Irving had the ball in his hands more than LeBron James did during Cleveland’s first-round sweep of the Pacers.
“Uh, hmm.

Man, Bron, had the ball for about four seconds some times and he was at the basket already.”
The issue here, the reason neither Irving nor you believes he had the ball more than James, is it seemed like James did everything in the first round and never left the court. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
