Cavs coach Tyronn Lue: David Blatt 'definitely deserves another chance'

By Jason Lloyd Published: April 28, 2016

INDEPENDENCE: Cavs coach Tyronn Lue gave former coach David Blatt a strong endorsement one day after reports circulated that the New York Knicks interviewed him to be their coach.

“He definitely deserves another chance,” Lue said. “I thought Coach Blatt did a great and phenomenal job here. He taught me a lot. Just being friends with him and getting a chance to understand him was great for me. I know a lot of guys around here, we talked about it the other day, they miss him and his presence. I would just like keep in contact with him. Hopefully, he gets another job in this league because he deserves it.” 

Blatt interviewed with Knicks president Phil Jackson on Monday, according to multiple reports. He was fired at the halfway point of this season despite a 30-11 record and first place in the East. Blatt played with Knicks general manager Steve Mills at Princeton.

League declares Cavs' Kyrie Irving did not foul Pistons' Reggie Jackson on game's final play Sunday

By Jason Lloyd Published: April 25, 2016

Pistons guard Reggie Jackson was not fouled on the final play of the Cavs’ Game 4 sweep, the league ruled Monday, despite Jackson’s insistence referees should be fined or fired for blown calls.

Jackson appeared to have room to drive closer to the basket for a potential game-tying shot at the end of the Cavs' 100-98 victory on Sunday. But after beating Kyrie Irving on the final play, he instead pulled up for a 3-pointer to try and win it and left it short.

Jackson was upset Irving wasn’t called for a foul, but the league’s Last 2 Minute report declared the call was correct and Joe Borgia, the NBA’s senior vice president of replay and referee operations, showed through video why it wasn’t a foul.
