Doc Rivers calls on National Basketball Association to reduce back-to-back games

20 March 2017, 10:39 | Max Haynes

There was never any doubt that they Cavs' Big Three would be active tonight, but it never hurts to confirm.

Kyrie Irving bounced back from a cranky left knee to lead everyone with 46 points - his third 40-point performance of the season - going 15-for-21 from the floor, including 6-of-10 from long-range and a ideal 10-of-10 from the stripe.

LeBron James - not to be outdone down the stretch - also finished with 14 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter. Call it treating the game like a show or just a late-season malaise, the Cavaliers weren't at their peak and the Lakers took full advantage. The game was the second in as many nights for the Warriors and their eighth in eight cities in a 13-day stretch. "Kyrie didn't come back the game before, knee soreness".

Jordan Clarkson added 19 points for the Lakers, and rookie Brandon Ingram had 18. While fans want to see their favorite players in person when they attend a game, those same fans want to see their favorite players playing their best when it matters most.

Russell hit his new career high on a three-point play with 5:49 to play, but he didn't score again. "If we can learn to play defense nightly, we always give ourselves a chance".

The crowd hated (Tyronn) Lue's decision, reacting with confusion when the starting lineups were announced and then booing James when he joined the Cavs on the bench early in the first quarter.

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.

"I think we have to treat those games like they're afternoon games, and you don't play the night before", Rivers told ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz.

Ultimately, this is a decision for coaches and GMs, and I can't envision any mechanism by which the National Basketball Association could prevent teams from doing it. Cleveland returns home - but not for long - stopping at The Q for a Saturday night showdown with the Wizards before getting right back on the road, facing the Spurs in San Antonio on Monday and the Bulls in Chicago on Thursday.
