JB Bickerstaff Rumors
Kelsey Russo: #Cavs J.B. Bickerstaff on Collin Sexton’s ejection from the game for the flagrant foul 2 called on Sexton: “It was disappointing for Collin. I know that’s not the way he wanted to end the season.” Sexton scored 16 points and dished 5 assists in the loss to the Nets.
Perturbed over what they consider an egregious missed call against center Jarrett Allen late in the fourth quarter of Friday’s 120-105 loss to the Washington Wizards, the Cleveland Cavaliers submitted video and reached out to the league office Saturday morning, expressing their feelings and asking for coach J.B. Bickerstaff’s technical foul to be rescinded, sources tell cleveland.com.
Lindsay Gottlieb: “I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve as an Assistant Coach with the Cavaliers for the last two years. This has truly been a basketball dream come true for me to work not only in the NBA, but hand-in-hand with this incredible coaching staff that has taught me so much. I’d especially like to thank Koby Altman and J.B. Bickerstaff for believing in me and providing an inclusive environment to enhance my coaching acumen.”
Gottlieb was the first Power 5 conference female head coach to make the leap to the NBA sidelines, moving from the University of California to the Cavaliers in 2019. Gottlieb earned praise inside the Cleveland organization and locker room for her work with the Cavaliers, becoming a front bench assistant under head coach J.B. Bickerstaff.
