ATLANTA -- Cedi Osman's numbers in the box score won't jump out at you.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- When Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue decided to move Kevin Love to center, removing Tristan Thompson from the starting lineup, it raised a few eyebrows.

Love finished with a team-high 25 points on 7-of-16 from the field and 4-of-9 from 3-point range to go with 16 rebounds and eight more free throws. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

ATLANTA -- LeBron James said he guarded Dennis Schroder with his brain.

James was assigned to blanket the Atlanta Hawks' shifty point guard in the second half of the Cavs' 121-114 win on Thursday night, and that's more or less what happened.

Schroder scored 17 of his 27 points in the first half, including 11 in the second quarter on a 3-pointer and four consecutive layups. He shot 3-of-7 with James guarding him on virtually all possessions, and one of Schroder's buckets came while James was on the other side of the court. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
