The fourth-year guard exited the game with 9:17 remaining in the third quarter and rode an exercise bike in the tunnel to try to stay loose after starting off with 15 points, six rebounds and three steals up to that point. He returned with 8:47 remaining in the fourth quarter and played an additional 4 minutes, 11 seconds, tacking on a missed shot, a rebound and a personal foul to his final stat line. "I'm just going to keep treating it, make sure that I'm in the training room as many hours as I can to get ready for Game 3," Shumpert said. He later added: "It's going to take a lot of doctors to tell me not to play Game 3." ESPN.com

Iman Shumpert, Kyrie Irving and partly Matthew Dellavedova will be primarily responsible for keeping Rose in front of them. Nonetheless, if Rose is getting off, you might see James call for a defensive switch and that goes for anyone else who may catch on fire. "I think it's a different time. It's a different situation. If need be, will I need to guard Rose at times? I can do it," James said. "I can guard anybody on their team one through 15 if need be. But the time, the score, the game, the situation will dictate itself." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Iman Shumpert, the Cavaliers' mid-season acquisition known best for stifling defense and his signature hairstyle, a flat top that invokes memories of Will Smith from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," has written and performed a new hip-hop song for the playoff run. Titled "The Offs," Shumpert references each member of the roster at least once, including injured Anderson Varejao, who was lost in December with a torn Achilles. Even head coach David Blatt has a line in the song. Cleveland Plain Dealer

Titled "The Offs," Shumpert references each member of the roster at least once, including injured Anderson Varejao, who was lost in December with a torn Achilles. Even head coach David Blatt has a line in the song. Shumpert, who was seen playing the harmonica in the locker room following games, enjoys making music in his free time, even laying down a track in 2012 titled, "Knicks Anthem." His Cavs' playoff anthem features this refrain: "The only way to pick up is to get your funky jazz down." Shumpert also refers to himself as "one of those most wanted thieves in the league."

Not only did the Cleveland Cavaliers stave off an upset scare in their 87-86 win over the lowly Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, they also appear to have avoided major injuries to two of their key contributors. Both Kevin Love (lower back) and Iman Shumpert (left ankle) were forced to exit the game early without returning to action. However, Cavs coach David Blatt downplayed the severity of their injuries moving forward. "Kev took an elbow to the back and he was experiencing some real discomfort, so we took him out," Blatt said. "We didn't want to push it. Hopefully, he'll be OK. And Iman jammed his ankle. You saw he took sort of a funny step before he attempted to dunk that ball and he jammed his ankle. Also, I think he wanted to come back in there, but we held him out for precautionary reasons. I believe he'll be OK." ESPN.com

But Shumpert says the whole thing has been blown out of proportion ... saying, "The 'Empire' story pertaining to myself and my girlfriend Teyana has gotten out of hand." "Fans of the show and friends have told us on many occasions that couple favors us but we do not at all feel that our lives are being copied/stolen." TMZ.com
