Last quote by Tyronn Lue

That was the craziest thing I've ever seen. A grown man asks somebody permission to do something, I never understood that. They always make a story out of something when it comes to us. In case we need them. In case we need those guys. Checking in on them, making sure they're fine and staying in tune with the game in case we need them. But to ask permission is stupid.feedback

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Tyronn Lue is associated, including Bron, United States, and anyone. Most recently, Tyronn Lue has been quoted saying: “It wasn't about Kyrie or Kevin. It was about D-Will, Korver and Channing and how well they played. They were playing great, that unit was going well, and Kevin and Kyrie, they understood. No, I didn't ask those guys for permission to sit them out, but I did want to keep those guys engaged just in case we needed them down the stretch, because D-Will played, I think, 15 or 16 minutes straight. Kyle Korver played 15 or 16 minutes straight ... so just considering the game and how it was going, just had to check on those guys and make sure they stayed engaged into the game in case we did need them.” in the article Tyronn Lue upset with media portrayal of Love, Irving benching.

Tyronn Lue quotes

I figured it was going to be Indiana, just looking at their schedule, looking at the (Chicago) Bulls' schedule, I pretty much thought it was going to be them. And I've been putting it together for a while. So today I was able to go through some plays and try to take away some things.feedback

They're well coached. Coach [Nate] McMillan did a great job the second half of the season figuring out his team, who he wanted to play and what lineups. They've been playing well. Paul George coming off pin-downs and trying to run LeBron around off catch-and-shoots, because you can't post Bron or it's hard to go on-on-one, so he ran Bron around a lot. We've got to be prepared for that.feedback

I feel good. As long as we're healthy, I think we can win. So, health is the most important thing. We chased the No. 1 seed, we lost two games to Hawks that we should've won, but we didn't. So now we're here. It's going to be a tough road whether you're first seed, second seed or third seed. The Eastern Conference had gotten better and we understand that. And we have to play better so we understand that. The challenge is here and we're up for the challenge.feedback

Also with [Jeff] Teague being a fast guard who can get downhill, put a lot of pressure on you and get into the paint. Those are two things we have to be better at and we got to be good at going into the playoffs.feedback

We had some key injuries this year that set us back, but for the most part, it's pretty much the same. I think the East has gotten better. Toronto has gotten better. Boston has gotten better. Indiana is playing good basketball. The Bulls finally figured out what they're going to do, who they're going to be. Same thing with Milwaukee. So, teams have gotten better and that's just the biggest difference to me. It's going to be a bigger challenge for us this year.feedback

My confidence is that we can win. And I know we can win the series. We just got to play Cavaliers basketball, which we're capable of doing, which we showed we can do. I hear all the talk or whatever, I don't listen to it. I know our team, I know we have confidence to win. As far as the outside rumblings, that's just part of it. It always surrounds this team and I'm used to it.feedback

I just know we didn't respect those guys. Dunleavy comes off the bench and scores 20 points. We know what he does, he shoots the basketball. We're late getting to him, late chasing him off screens. Late on a lot of screens. They came in, they played hard and they beat us.feedback

Games like this come back and bite you. Obviously a bad performance. Beat Boston and have the game that we had, and to come back and not validate it against a team that didn't even play their guys. I didn't think we respected them tonight. I thought we thought we'd just mess around with the game until it was time to knuckle down. By that time, they already had confidence. That's who we've been. That's who we are. I hate it.feedback

We're gonna get him out there and just kind of see what he can do. We're confident that he can do some good things.feedback

It's a fine line. You want to go into the playoffs healthy and rested but if you can get home-court, you want that too. We're great at home.feedback

Come on. Ten points? You might get eight. Especially against us, you might be able to get eight.feedback

They should be able to score 10 points. I averaged 10 points for four years. They ought to be able to score 10 points. I mean, the best player in the world, he better be able to score 10 points.feedback

I mean, 10 points? That's one bucket a quarter and then one free throw a half. I mean, come on, man, if you can't do that then we shouldn't be sitting here talking. That's it. What we talking about? Ten points?feedback

So this is kind of like his training camp and his preseason, then all the other things that are going on as far as his family [Smith's daughter was born five months premature this January]. It's gotta be tough on him. I just got to keep talking to him, tell him he doesn't have to press. We're behind him 100 percent. His daughter is in our thoughts and our prayers. Basketball is our life, but it's not the only life that you have. He's gotta understand that. He's just gotta stay up and stay positive. That's why he is who he is.feedback

With JR, it's a lot. To miss training camp because of the contract situation and then you finally start getting your legs under you, and you get hurt -- and you're out for three months.feedback

We'll get in late, 2-3 in the morning and he's in at 8:30 getting his stretching and workouts. Or we're just having a walk-through. And he's on the treadmill running for 30 minutes.feedback

I'm not confident, but we've got to. It seemed like they were so much faster than us. We just didn't have it tonight.feedback

We got J.R. off the floor. He's fiery, he's feisty. He's ready to get back on the floor. It happens throughout the course of a game. It's nothing, though.feedback

It's going to be a process. But it's a great process to have, and we have great players. Now, we have a roster with 12 guys that should be playing.feedback

He understands the big picture and what we're trying to accomplish. The guy's played so many minutes over the course of his career, and going to six straight Finals he has to take some rest at times.feedback

That first 2 1/2 quarters was great basketball. That's how we're capable of playing. Moving the basketball, sharing the basketball, making the extra pass ... that's who we are.feedback

We got to 25, got comfortable and started messing around with the game, taking bad shots, and they made some good shots, some tough shots.feedback

It was a good game – went down to the wire, shot for shot. I.T. made two big shots, Avery made two big shots. We competed, we fought. That's all you can ask for.feedback

He played through it. Guys are going to get their proper rest going forward, even though Kevin is out. We're going to be fine.feedback

We can't run LeBron into the ground because Kevin's out. Guys have to step up and be ready to play. The games we discussed he could possibly be out in March, we'll look forward to that.feedback

Probably, I'm not sure yet, but it's a good possibility. We'll see how the guys feel. When we're playing good like this, guys might want to play, so we'll just see how they feel.feedback

When we got here, we told him, Whatever shot you have, take it.feedback

We are going to do it. We are the champs, we do have a great team and we have the (fourth) best record in the NBA right now so we got to play like it.feedback

For me, LeBron James, the best player in the world, took a team that was worse to the NBA Finals two years ago. We have a good team. We just have to start playing better as a unit. No excuses.feedback

For me, you always want to try to improve the team whether you're great or not. Golden State won 73 games last year and they added Kevin Durant. You always want to get better and when you see teams getting better as a competitor you want to get better. But we have enough on this team to win a championship. We can get better. I know Griff is going to make us better and he's going to do the best he can.feedback

Maybe Pop has it in his contract to fly under the radar. They're good every year.feedback

Of course you want to play well. It's Christmas, everyone is locked in and everybody is watching, you have the last two champs against each other so it's going to be a good game, but it's not like if we beat Golden State or they beat us it's seven wins in the win column.feedback

In practice (Friday), he looked really good, had a lot of pop, was moving around well. There will probably come another time where he's going to need a little rest also. Right now, he's feeling good and that's the biggest thing for me.feedback

It was pretty much the circumstance. It wasn't like, we're coming to Memphis; we're going to sit our guys.feedback

It's a tribute to his hard work and his dedication.feedback

It's not normal, but considering the circumstances that's what we have. But that's not my main objective. My main thing is to try to get this team to stay on track and play the right way and try to get back on track by playing Cleveland Cavalier basketball.feedback

To get 34 points on this team, it says a lot. The thing I liked the most was when he got going, our guys really looked for him.feedback

A lot of guys were humbled by the experience. When you get a chance to meet the President of the United States – and he knows your first name and last name, and knows your stats and how you play and who you are as a person – it just means a lot.feedback

He's very physical. Sometimes he demands double-teams if he gets deep in the paint. He's going to drive fouls on your big men. They also have a shot blocker.feedback

We were tested tonight. Overall, I'm pleased to come out with a win when we had some adversity.feedback

If they win it, we've got to come back and win it again, too.feedback

For him to internalize it this whole time without saying anything to anyone is tough.feedback

Every time I see those last plays, guys celebrating and crying, it just sends chills through my body. I'm pretty sure that on opening night it's going to be even more than that. It's going to be an emotional night, I know that and I'm going to enjoy it also. It's going to be one of those nights. It's a great night. Who wouldn't want to be in that position as an NBA player or NBA coach? It's going to be a great night for us.feedback

That was one of the best moments I experienced this summer.feedback

I don't know why, but they do come up to me and thank me. We're champs and they carry themselves like that and rightfully so.feedback

We made history tonight. Cleveland, Ohio, we're coming back, baby!feedback
