Cavaliers, LeBron open (another) playoff push against Indiana

LeBron James has earned what should be the fifth MVP award of his remarkable career

James locked up the NBA's equivalent of a ideal attendance record when he hit the floor for Wednesday night's regular-season finale against the New York Knicks at Quicken Loans Arena.

James has ordinarily sat out games at the end of the season when the Cavs have a seed locked up. A couple of days ago, he would express his desire to play in all 82 games.

The four-time MVP's previous high was in 2008/09, playing 81, when then Coach Mike Brown rested him in the last game.

Thanks to a clean bill of health, LeBron has stitched together one of his finest seasons to date while shouldering a massive workload.

James finished the regular season leading the National Basketball Association in minutes played, with 36.9 minutes per game, the second straight year he's led the league in that stat. James averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game. After early struggles resulted in Cleveland unloading their roster as the trade deadline closed, James willed the Cavs to a fourth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs while securing his tenth consecutive division title and leading the team in rebounds, assists, points, steals, and blocks.

"They're a team that beat us 3-1 and we know they play fast", Lue said.

"(Victor) Oladipo has had an incredible year and I think the biggest thing is (coach) Nate McMillan, I think he definitely should be considered for coach of the year. G Courtney Lee (sprained left ankle) was ruled out before shootaround, leaving NY with just nine players. "I think he's been great defensively right from the start", Hornacek said.

Cavaliers: Re-signed F Kendrick Perkins for the remainder of the season. The two players said to have remained in close ties with Fizdale off the court even after their stints with the Heat had already ended.
