Kurt Helin

Report: Cavaliers have “legitimate fear” Kevin Love leaves as free agent. Should they really be? dlvr.it/9j4lYq

Sam Amico

Iman Shumpert just walked back to Cavs locker room with a heating pad and Damon Jones. He may be done for night if Cavs hold lead.

#Cavs 87, #Bulls 71, end third Q. LeBron James has 30 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists. Tristan Thompson (10 rebounds) is doing a number on Pau

Steve Aschburner

Tristan Thompson, tonight's lineup switch for CLE: 1 point but 10 rebounds. Four on offensive end. He's plus-16. Cavs 87, Bulls 71 thru 3Q.

Nick Friedell

Cavs up 87-71 after 3. If you're Thibs, how much longer do you give Rose and Butler tonight if they can't turn it around quickly?

Joe Cowley

87-71 going into the fourth ... Cavs now down to 55 percent from the three-point line.

Sam Amico

Tristan Thompson now with 10 rebounds. He averaged 9.7 as starter in 15 regular-season games. Cavs lead Bulls 87-71 entering fourth.

Mike Prada

If the Cavs can get away with James Jones at the 4, it means Pau Gasol has to box out Tristan Thompson. Big that Jones hit shots.

Tim Bontemps

Nice response by the Cavaliers here -- particularly without Shumpert. Impressive stretch by LeBron to reassert control.

Sam Amico

Cavs' Iman Shumpert has groin strain. He is off exercise bike and looks ready to check back in. Return officially "probable."

Rick Bonnell

So James Jones...yup, everyone in Cleveland knew who'd save the Cavs tonight....

Chuck Swirsky

James Jones two big 3 balls late 3rd....Cavs lead at 15 with Gasol at the line 82-67 2:31 left 3rd

Nick Friedell

Cavs PR says Iman Shumpert has a left groin strain. His return is probable.

Tim Bontemps

Without J.R.Smith, Cavs needed big production from one of their extra wings. Getting it tonight from James Jones.

Chris Herring

Cavs say Shumpert has a left strained groin. Return to the game is probable.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs G Iman Shumpert suffered a left groin strain and is listed as probable to return.

Chris Haynes

Iman Shumpert riding a stationary bike at the moment. That's good news for #Cavs.

Joe Cowley

Slipping quickly for the Cavs.... Blatt deer in the headlights....

Tim Bontemps

This game has gotten awfully interesting. Helps when the Cavaliers have to play Dellavadova heavy minutes now.

Rick Noland

some LOUSY possessions by cavs right now

Mike Prada

The Cavaliers are the black knight in Monty Python.

Dave McMenamin

Shumpert gave the Cavs 37 pts in 6 1/2 quarters in this series before heading to the locker room with an apparent groin injury.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls on a mini 6-0 run...Cavs up 72-53 7:58 left 3rd. Shumpert to the locker-room

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Iman Shumpert goes directly to the locker room

Iman Shumpert is headed to the locker room. #Cavs don't need this.
