Looking back, Williams said, the challenge of joining an established title team was more difficult than he envisioned. “It was an adjustment,” he said. “Any time you go to another team in the middle of the season it’s going to be an adjustment. Add to it it’s the defending champs, a lot of pressure and, you know, it was a different situation for me than I had ever been in in my career. Coming off the bench, playing short minutes, trying to figure out how to stay confident and be aggressive sometimes when you don’t have the ball in your hands. “I feel like I’ve had a little bit over two months now and I’ve adjusted and figured things out.”
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.”

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.
By the time the visitor’s locker room opened inside the United Center following another loss — Cleveland’s fifth in the last seven games and 10th during a pitiful March — Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Deron Williams and James Jones were the only players remaining. That’s because the team meeting, which Kyrie Irving hinted at, had already taken place.
