Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt spoke to media on Tuesday.
Blatt first was asked if LeBron James practiced, "LeBron did not, LeBron is at home with flu-like symptoms, hopefully nothing serious as far as an illness is concerned but we just want to let him rest" Blatt responded.
The Cavaliers concerns have always been on the defensive side of the ball, Blatt was asked what he looks at to see if his team is defending well, " I think in terms of metrics, different people have varied opinions on what the most important one is, but I think field goal percentage, rebound percentage, and turnovers forced are probably three of the most important, team wise." Blatt said.
The Cavaliers are currently on a three-game winning streak and have a 22-20 record. Their next game is on Wednesday when the Utah Jazz come to The Q.
