Love says the addition of Serge Ibaka changes things for Toronto. “Just a different dynamic,” Love said of Ibaka, who was acquired from the Orlando Magic in February. “Definitely shooters with both him and [Patrick] Patterson out there. He brings a ton of energy. Played really well in round one, so he just gives them a whole different look and a guy who has a ton of playoff experience coming from Oklahoma City.”

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.”

Love was asked if being benched in Game 3 could motivate him further for Sunday’s potential series-closeout opportunity in Game 4. “No,” Love told ESPN. “That’s silly. If anything, we look at it like that was great for that second unit and those guys stepping up for us. It will give them a lot of confidence, give us a lot of confidence in all sorts of positions and situations that they can help us win. If they can do that, then now we got to go out with the first unit, especially in the first half, and play better.”

Indiana wanted star Paul George to take the last shot, but Cleveland double-teamed him and he was forced to pass it to Miles, whose shot was on line but short. “I talked to C.J. about it,” George said. “In situations like that, I gotta get the last shot. I was asking for it. C.J. took it upon himself.” Kyrie Irving added 23 points and Kevin Love had 17 for Cleveland, which has won 12 straight playoff games at home.
