What bothers you most about the Cleveland Cavaliers resting their star players?

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has been a one-man wrecking crew this season his first without Kevin Durant. Will the Thunder find a suitable star to play alongside Westbrook

After scoring 40 points in Sunday night's 125-120 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, no one would have faulted D'Angelo Russell if he'd just gone home and gotten some rest.

On the other hand, the San Antonio Spurs closed the gap on the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the National Basketball Association standings.

Have 2 or 3 starting at that same time, so if a few stars in game one suddenly sit at the last second, you can go to a different game where players are actually competing.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' Big Three of LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving make almost as many headlines when they sit as they do when they play. What about the fans, who pay good money and expect to see the league's superstars?

Cleveland is now 0-3 when it sits Love, Irving, and James, 0-6 when James sits this season, and 4-21 without him since the start of the 2014 season. There are plenty of nights where that 101 points would have been enough for the Cavs to win the game, which is just absurd. "We messed with the game and we know we can turn it up, but sometimes, it's too late", Lue said. Is he responsible only to his team and his players?

Chris Paul said the Clippers need to find "more consistency on the defensive end" like they had against the Cavaliers. "I think coaches are taking responsibility, trying to look after their players, make sure they get the proper rest".

Griffin also said his job is not to appease the league or its TV partners, but to ensure his team has the best chance to win a championship. On the contrary, Silver has long advocated for player health and wellness, leaving his hands tied to a degree on this issue.

DeAndre Jordan had 13 points and 17 rebounds and J.J. Redick scored 16 points for the Clippers (41-29), who have a half-game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder (40-29) for the No. 5 seed in the NBA's Western Conference.

You are nearly guaranteed a triple-double when All-Star Westbrook takes to the court but he fell just short on Saturday.

"We'll continue to try to that lineup going forward", Walton said to the OC Register's Mark Medina and others after the game., "and see if we can make that chemistry between the two a normal thing".

The Clippers are fifth in the West, two games behind the fourth-place Jazz.
