The 22-year-old guard averaged 6.8 points, 2.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds off the bench in 35 games with New Orleans. The Pelicans were 13 1/2 games back in the West standings Friday night, while the Clippers were 6 1/2 behind before they hosted Cleveland. Austin Rivers became the first player in NBA history to play for his father. "History, oh great," Doc said beforehand. "I don't really care about that. I want to win and make our team better." So does his son. "I was really excited because this is a playoff, championship-caliber team," Austin said. "I can score the ball and play-make. That's something the team needs in the second unit."

Doc Rivers and Austin Rivers became the first father-son coach-player duo in NBA history on Friday after Austin was traded to the Clippers in a three-team deal on Thursday. Doc and Austin downplayed any possibility of nepotism before the game, with Austin saying his dad wouldn’t make this move or play him just because he’s his son. “My dad is too focused on his thing for that to even be an issue;that's almost a disrespectful thing to my dad," Austin said. "My dad would never, ever play me over somebody because I'm his son. If I'm not playing well, I'm sitting on the bench. He wants to win. My dad's the type of guy when I was 5 years old, we played checkers and he would not let me win.” ESPN.com

James took a pass from Matthew Dellavedova at the top of the key, drove to the hoop, got bumped by Matt Barnes and somehow put in an off-balanced one-handed shot off the glass for the and-one. James' celebratory jig prompted reaction from Clippers star Chris Paul, who waved it off as if to say, "Don't even." The ensuing free throw gave the Cavaliers a 104-100 lead. Cleveland Plain Dealer

Brad Turner: Jordan Farmar on being waived by Clippers today: “I was surprised that it got to this, but yet it became mutual. I just never felt I had a real role. We talked in the off season about what my job was going to be. The opportunity just wasn’t the same. It was never time for me to really ever get going, and feel comfortable and feel like I had a place on the team. Twitter @BA_Turner
