LeBron James said he didn't see Cam Newton's postgame press conference after Super Bowl 50, but shared what it's been like for him to talk to the media after an NBA Finals loss: "I know it's very difficult to play in one of the biggest games of your life and come out on the wrong side of it and then have to automatically answer questions. And we also know as professionals that's part of the business. We also know that you guys are part of the reason that help (make) the game as great as it is, so you got to, as difficult as it is to answer some of the questions that you know this is the last thing you want to talk about, you have to go up there and take the onus, and take the good with the bad. Like I said I didn't see the Cam interview, but I can only imagine what happened. But I've been in that situation before on both sides, so, it's difficult."

Matthew Dellavedova will miss his fourth straight game Monday vs. Sacramento with a sore left hamstring, per the Cavs. Kevin Love went through shootaround and is considered probable for the Kings game. Love missed Saturday's game against New Orleans after suffering a left quad contusion Friday.

Tyronn Lue: 'Me and Blatt are cool'

Despite some Cavs fans being irked by the circumstances of David Blatt's departure, current coach Lue told Cleveland's website: "I don't care what's being said. I know how loyal I was to Coach Blatt, and the people that know me understand that. I have no control over what people think. I have a job to do, and I'm going to do my best."

Cavs have two games remaining before the All-Star break: Monday against SAC and Wednesday against LAL. Very winnable games. Question mark is CLE health. Kevin Love (L quad) is day to day; Matthew Dellavedova (L hamstring) could be kept out through the break, Lue said. "Delly's a tough guy. If it was up to me, I wouldn't let him play until after the All-Star break, but it would be hard to hold Delly out if he's feeling pretty good. I think the most important thing, for me, is just getting his health right going into the second stretch of the season."
