It is the longest break between series of LeBron James’ Cavs career.

Forced to await the winner of the Boston Celtics-Washington Wizards semifinal series, which concludes with Monday’s Game 7 in Boston, Lue said he’s trying some new things to keep the Cavs sharp. Scrimmaging will not be one of them, he said Saturday. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
