INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- News, notes and quotes from Cavaliers practice, as they prepare for the preseason finale vs. Indiana Tuesday at The Q:
Coach Byron Scott said hell change the starting lineup vs. the Pacers. He did not, however, say whos getting the call. Im going against everything Ive done in the past, he said. I still want to see some different lineups, so Im going to play some different guys and see how that works.
In the previous three games, Anderson Varejao started at center, Tristan Thompson and C.J. Miles at forward, and Kyrie Irving and rookie Dion Waiters at guard. Scott the lineup that starts Tuesday has worked together for the past three or four days of practice. I want to see how they play together (in a game), Scott said. Then Ill make my final decision on whos going to start and all that stuff next week.
Scott added that Tuesdays game wont necessarily be a gigantic factor in who starts the season-opener Oct. 30. But it will at least give me more information...
