Tyronn Lue said the Cavs will try to win tonight with No. 3 still up for grabs if MIL beats PHI, but he still plans to pull LeBron James after he scores 10 pt to keep his streak intact. Said CLE has consistently put health over seeding the last several years.— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) April 11, 2018
He was hesitant to let him dress at all, but decided to pull him after his tenth point to keep the streak alive of the most consecutive games with ten or more points.
