Cavaliers plan to rest players

The Cavaliers have a shot at tying the best NBA home-court record tonight when they face the struggling Philadelphia 76ers at Quicken Loans arena.

The record was set by the 1985-86 Boston Celtics (40-1) but the Cavs have bigger things planned.

“We’ve got to do what’s best for the ring,” James said. “We’ve got home-court advantage already. We’re not fighting for breaking a record anymore. We’re fighting for that ring.”

Cavaliers coach Mike Brown plans to rest James along with Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Mo Williams and Wally Szczerbiak might not play much either.

“We’re not fighting for breaking a record any more,” James said. “We’re fighting for that ring. So what Mike says goes — and I’m with Mike. If Mike wants to rest some of the big guys — myself, I’m going to sit out on Wednesday — I’m all for that because [in] the playoffs — you’ve got to be fresh.”
