Cleveland Cavaliers' Tyronn Lue will ease his way back to coaching

Via AntDavis23

The Cavs get a chance to build on those encouraging signs against a team fighting for playoff positioning in the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.

This will be the first time that Lue is expected to address the team since leaving the Cavaliers on March 19 because of medical and rest issues.

Associate head coach Larry Drew has been coaching the Cavaliers in Lue's absence and led them to a 5-1 record.

Lue, who took over the Cavs midway through the 2016 season and guided them to an National Basketball Association championship, last coached in a game on March 17 in Chicago. "I know he's itching to get back".

The Cavaliers are 45-30 and third in the Eastern Conference standings.

"Ty was Ty", Drew said.

No active player is within 600 games of James' record (James Harden entered play Friday with 257), but LeBron wouldn't bite when asked Friday if he thought it was a record that would never been broken. On the glass, Tristan Thompson corralled 14 boards, with Kevin Love also hauling down eight despite a rough shooting night. Still, the Pelicans made one final push, missing an opportunity to tie the game in the final minute, with one free throw each from Jordan Clarkson and J.R. Smith providing the final cushion. After Saturday's home game against the Pelicans, the Cavaliers have six games to go in the regular season, all but two at home. "He's talked to management here in the organization and they've come up with a plan as far as when it's time for him to come back how often he'll be around and how they want to move forward as far as him getting used to getting back into the grind". Like his record-tying bucket Wednesday in Charlotte, James set the new record on a dunk.
