Tyronn Lue says Cavaliers are best in East thanks to LeBron James

"Because we've got the best player in the world," Lue said before the Cavs lost to the Golden State Warriors 118-108 on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

He's referring, of course, to LeBron James , the four-time MVP and three-time champion who was averaging 27.1 points, 8.8 assists and eight rebounds this season entering Monday.

As Lue's pregame media conference continued, perhaps the coach had a moment to reflect on the Cavs' current spot in the standings: third in the East; seven games back of No.

A 22-0 Cavaliers run wasn't enough to stop a sharply descending Cleveland team from another embarrassing loss, this time in Indiana.

Kerr said that anytime the Warriors play the Cavs -- the team they've faced in the NBA Finals for an NBA-record three straight times -- it matters a little bit more.
