CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Through three quarters against the Sacramento Kings, sharpshooter Kyle Korver looked lethargic -- just like the rest of his teammates.

Head coach Tyronn Lue couldn't pinpoint exactly why. But he could certainly sense it with his whole team. So during the mandatory timeout, prior to the start of the fourth quarter, Lue decided it was time to unlock Korver, especially with LeBron James set to rest at the start of the period.

"I told the coaches, I said, 'We need something from Korver,'" Lue admitted following the 101-95 win. "So out of timeouts we kept drawing up two plays at a time just so we could get him going." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers beat the Sacramento Kings with LeBron James and a play they call "Chicago," which is not a reference to the team's win there over the Bulls on Monday.

Rather, it's a nod to one of the great plays in James' storied career, his turnaround jumper over Jimmy Butler as time expired to beat Chicago in Game 4 of the 2015 Eastern semifinals.

There's not a ton of complexity involved in the play; the idea is to get the ball to James with as few people around him as possible and have him score. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
