INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said days ago he was "pretty much" going to treat Tuesday night's fourth preseason game against the Chicago Bulls -- the first with their overhauled starting lineup -- like a regular season game.

"We did some different things today that they all pretty much liked," Lue said following the lengthy practice. "All got on the same page. It's a challenge when you've got a new team and you want to incorporate stuff, but you don't want to go too fast, you don't want to go too slow. You want to see what works. So we kind of scrapped some of the stuff we've been doing and we're going to just go in a different direction offensively with that first unit." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
