Fear the Newsletter: Kay Felder stole the show last night

That and more in today’s Cavs newsletter.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: When we look back at 2016, last night's game will likely go down as the Kay Felder game. He scored eight of his 12 points in the fourth, including four straight he was subbed in for LeBron James around the 11 minutes mark. And the Cavs ultimately won by eight.

It's not too late to start his Rookie of the Year campaign, is it?

LEGEND HAS IT: Cleveland has off today before before playing the Bulls on Wednesday. Today should be a rest day. Kyrie Irving needs it, for one. Kevin Love also needs it after losing 10 pounds in two days after eating bad sea bass. LeBron had to play 39 minutes in the Cavaliers' win. Basically: everyone needs to just chill, watching something on Netflix (I'd recommend Peaky Blinders) and get right for Wednesday.

ALL DUE RESPECT: San Antonio, Toronto and Boston all had the night off. The Rockets took down John Wall and the Wizards. The Hornets lost on the road to the Bulls. In late night action, the Dubs beat the Nuggets and remain easily atop the Western Conference.

JOB WELL DONE: Yesterday's Locked on Cavs answered listener questions on Kyrie's assists, Josh Smith and more. We also posted on Kyrie Irving missing his second straight game.

Coming today: A Locked on Cavs recap of Cavs-Pelicans, some more on Felder and, well, more.

CROWN:'s Chris Fedor wrote about how Felder learns from Isaiah Thomas. Bret LaGree wonders if the Atlanta Hawks have succumbed to fear. The New York Times profiled an Oklahoma paper that endorsed Hilary Clinton and hasn't been forgiven. SI's Jake Fischer wrote about DeAndre Liggins, potential NBA Finals X-Factor. Lastly, the Ringer wrote about how Mark Burnett created Donald Trump.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to and we'll talk to you tomorrow prior to Cavs-Bulls.
