Five takeaways from the Lakers' 125-120 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers

20 March 2017

When James, Love and Irving sat out Saturday's nationally-televised primetime game against the Los Angeles Clippers, reaction from national media and ABC analysts covering the game was overwhelmingly negative. "Fourth Quarter" mode late in L.A. - hitting all three shots he attempted, including both treys, and sinking all six free throws to finish with 14 points in the period. While Griffin defends that everyone except for one player on the roster were "reasonably injured" heading into last night's contest, the decision didn't sit well with a number of people, including former National Basketball Association head coach and current ESPN/ABC color commentator Jeff Van Gundy, who said the Cavs sitting their Big 3 should be a "prosecutable offense". Jamal Crawford also had 13 points.

Later on in the interview, Griffin said "We've had so many guys in and out of the lineup, we just want to be as whole as we can be". "We communicated. Offense will come and go, but defense is something that you hang your hat on and that is where you build your trust as a team". "We tried to compete". In the end, that might be good for them.

James missed his sixth game and Irving sat out after not playing in the fourth quarter on Thursday due to left knee tightness. Everybody has. Four in five nights are tough.

Shooting guard Kyle Korver (foot) was also out for the sixth game in a row as Cleveland posted its worst offensive output since December 26, 2015, and saw its lead in the Eastern Conference reduced to 1 1/2 games.

Lue added that he is not concerned about where the Cavaliers finish in the conference race. If you were able to get second place, you still have to beat us and I think (teams) understand who we are and we know who we are. "But it's the right thing for us".

"I mean, it's stupid", Lue said Sunday before the game, via the Akron Beacon Journal.

Fil-American guard Jordan Clarkson had 19 points, Brandon Ingram scored 18, while Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac had 10 points each. It wasn't pretty, but on the road late in the season a win is a win.
