In the first six quarters of the series, Shumpert was offering encouragement to his teammates from the sidelines, trying to stay as engaged and mentally prepared as possible. But in the third quarter Monday night, Shumpert had a different kind of impact, finding himself at the center of Cleveland’s short-lived defensive revival. “Shump was unbelievable,” Lue said. “Just staying ready, being professional. He came in and made it tough on Paul George. We held Paul George to four points in that third quarter where our defense was really good. Shump sparked that, made a couple shots for us also. His tenacity, it was really good for us. We needed that spark.”
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.
