NBA Rumors: Knicks To Pursue LeBron James This Summer After Jeff Hornacek's Likely Exit, Per 'Bleacher Report'

James has never played every game in a regular season before as he usually rests towards the end of the season ahead of the play-offs.

"He wants to play", Lue said.

James' teams have won 21 straight games in the opening round (including a 4-0 sweep of the Pacers last April).

The Wine & Gold have had some unusual seasons in the past - in the LeBron James Era and beyond.

This season has been nothing like the ones before it. Irving got traded for Isaiah Thomas last summer, and Thomas - along with some others - is no longer on the team after having issues acclimating to the new scenery. The fact that we are constantly discussing this shows just how great LeBron James is as a basketball player. The Pacers do not have a chance in this series and they will be vanquished in similar fashion as last season.

The Cavaliers superstar is looking to guide his team to an eighth consecutive NBA Finals, a total no player has approached aside from the mainstays of the Boston Celtics" 1950s and "60s dynasty.

"They're a team that beat us 3-1 and we know they play fast", Lue said.




James went over 2,000 points, 700 rebounds, and 700 assists for the season. The Pacers have a fast-paced offense that can exploit the Cavs in a hurry.

In the 2017 postseason, the Cavaliers coach played only eight players more than 15 minutes per game on average, but things are going to be a little bit different this year, as he has a completely healthy team since the overhaul of the roster at the trade deadline. Cleveland averaged 110.9 points per game this season, but allowed 109.9 per game.

The Pacers have also been good at defending the 3-point shot, ranking 5th in 3 point % allowed, at a measly 34.9% which is going to be vital against the Cavaliers.

"They got an All-Star in [Victor] Oladipo and all those other guys off 'em", he said. Watch to see if he'll exit the shadows or if he's vanquished before he reaches the light - just make sure you're watching it all unfold.

Knicks: Rookie Luke Kornet scored a season-high 23 points and Trey Burke added 19.

Knicks: G Courtney Lee (sprained left ankle) was ruled out before shootaround, leaving NY with just nine players. However, they must face a Jazz team that is on a 29-6 roll since late January. Lue believes Perkins, who was on Cleveland's 2015 Finals team, will be a positive influence on the team's big men in the playoffs.

"That's what we thrive on doing here", Lue said. Perkins said a stint in the G-League was "very humbling". IN gave James" Heat everything they could handle in three series matchups - taking Miami to six games in the East Semis in 2012 and to seven and six games in the Conference Finals in "13 and '14. But I feel the same way about myself.
