After he benched Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in the fourth quarter of the Cavs’ 119-114 come-from-behind win Thursday, Lue was annoyed with how the lineup change was framed as Lue seeking “permission” from his two All-Stars to keep them out while Deron Williams and Channing Frye closed out the game. “That was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” Lue said of the coverage, without mentioning specific publications or shows. “A grown man asks somebody permission to do something, I never understood that. They always make a story out of something when it comes to us.”

Channing Frye: It’s been amazing to see guys like Kyrie and Kevin grow as professionals. With Kyrie, it’s rare to find a guy that young who’s an old soul and a meticulous student of the game, who runs old Jordan and Kobe replays on his iPad in order to pick up some of their little moves. Something I’ve come to really admire about Kyrie is that he’s always computing out there — he’s logging everything that happens, and since nobody can guard him, that’s scary to think about. Listen, he’s a young guy who is gonna have ups and downs, and we often forget how young he is. But my respect for him has grown astronomically this season, and no, that’s not a wordplay on the whole “flat earth” thing.
The Cavs are planning to start J.R. Smith, Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert, and Deron Williams against the Heat, who need to win to keep pace with the Bulls for the eighth seed. Cleveland’s lineup listed above was posted as part of the team’s media notes for tonight’s game and is subject to change. Cleveland is tied for first with Boston. The Celtics play the Brooklyn Nets tonight.
