ORLANDO, Fla. — Tyronn Lue said if NBA veteran Kendrick Perkins doesn’t catch on as a player in the league, there’s a place for him on Lue’s staff.

“We’ve already talked about that,” Lue said after the Cavs’ 113-106 win over the Orlando Magic. “I think Perk was great because he holds everybody accountable. He plays the right way, tries to do the right thing every single day.

“You need a guy like that around. A guy who’s going to be the right person for the team, not worrying about himself, not being caught up in all his own personal things and will help the team out in any way he can.” – CLICK HERE to read full story.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Lo and behold, the Cavaliers won a game without LeBron James.

Never mind that Cleveland’s 113-106 win over the Orlando Magic Friday night was a preseason game. Cleveland had lost their last 17 regular and preseason games when James doesn’t play, dating to March 16, 2016.

The win was all Cleveland has to show for a preseason that is now complete. The Cavs went 1-4 and could only build continuity in pockets because of James’ prolonged absence because of a sprained ankle. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
