actually, if the game meant the difference between homecourt or not, i'm sure they would have played their starters. so if we had won, they most likely would have beat the sixers at home, and to tie the record

and why be excited that they didn't?

as a passionate laker fan, i revel when a rival fails...i don't who they put on the court, that was the coaches decision, they did not tie for the best home record in the league, and that makes me smile...maybe take a little wind out of their sails going into the post season

On record, this last game IS a loss. But technically speaking, the only legit home loss is from us. We brought it to them. THis one? They were missing key players, so I'd say this is a loss on record, but not a legit loss. Cavs can win this game if they choose to play on.

Sux to be them for this game then.

I don't see the point in resting anyone when you're trying to get all the momentum you can for the playoffs.

AGREED.

This wasn't a very smart move. 1 game of rest won't make much of a difference.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

On top of that, you wouldn't want to start the playoffs with a LOSS. Period.

Arrogance, pure arrogance.

agree with above posters. you want every accolade especially if you feel strongly it will be topped off with a ring
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

Arrogance? Really? Care to clarify?

Clearly they rested their best players to eliminate any possibility of injury going into the playoffs. Yall act like you haven't watched a lot of basketball over the years and seen other teams do it EVERY SEASON.

I personally feel like Mike Brown did the right thing. Giving his starters a game off before the playoffs isn't such a bad idea, and it makes sure an injury doesn't happen in the last game of the season. The Celtics rested some of their guys last year including Rajon Rondo. I think the only history the Cavs are concerned about is winning their first championship. It's just too bad it won't happen this year.

I agree, a lot of teams do this and it hasn't destroyed momentum or anything, you don't really need momentum when you're the 1 going into the playoffs against 8.

The dumb thing was that they had history right there, go for it you knuckleheads. No one talks about 39-2.
