CAVALIERS: General Manager David Griffin said David Blatt will remain the team’s head coach and that no change will be made.

LAKERS: Kobe Bryant will skip Monday’s game in Portland to rest. The Lakers are trying to preserve the health of their 36-year-old star, who sat out three straight games last month after feeling worn down.
