LeBron: Level of play doesn't reflect my age

LeBron James, in his 15th season in the NBA, said what he is achieving on the court has not been done a lot in league history, adding that he wants to "break the mold" and stereotype that older players cannot dominate the game as much as younger players.

Cavs head coach Ty Lue earned his 100th career win in Saturday's victory over the Utah Jazz. "I didn't know until after the game, but nothing gets by a number of these guys on the team," Cavs big man Kevin Love said. "That's awesome. It's one of those things he's not going to say much about, but we're very happy for him. We appreciate things like that, especially when it's our leader and our coach. It just makes it fun, it makes it satisfying."
