Kyle korver dating
Never mind that Cleveland's 113-106 win over the Orlando Magic Friday night was a preseason game.
Cleveland had lost their last 17 regular preseason games when James doesn't play, dating to March 16, 2016.
That trend will likely continue, as Korver is not receiving a ton of minutes on a consistent basis.
Korver scored 22 points (8-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding two rebounds, one steal and one block across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 112-107 loss to the Nets.
"Getting out of preseason healthy was our most important thing," coach Tyronn Lue said. The trade was necessary after the acquisitions of Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Jeff Green, Ante Zizic and Jose Calderon. Osman and Zizic are rookies brought over from Europe, and Holland is a "G" Leaguer on a two-way contract for the Cavs.
The win was all Cleveland has to show for a preseason that is now complete.
The Cavs went 1-4 and could only build continuity in pockets because of James' prolonged absence because of a sprained ankle.
The 36-year-old will likely remain with the second unit deep into the season since he's averaging 21.4 minutes.
Korver recorded 23 points (8-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and one block across 24 minutes during a 117-115 loss to the Hawks on Sunday.
