Cleveland Cavaliers Resting Big Three For Saturday’s Game Against Clippers

Sam Sharpe - USA TODAY Sports

Tyron Lue has made the decision to rest LeBron James, Kevin Love, and Kyrie Irving for Saturday evening’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers. beat writer Joe Gabriele announced the starting lineups around 4:00 pm.

This will be the Cavaliers second meeting against the Clippers after losing to them 113-94 on December 1st. 

This announcement comes a week after the NBA received serious backlash for the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs decisions to rest their star players. ABC, the host of tonight’s game, will most likely not be pleased with the Cavaliers’ actions.

The Cavaliers are currently sitting in first place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 45-22 while the Clippers are tied for fifth place in the Western Conference with a record of 40-29.
