Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.Sorry it's coming a bit later than normal.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs lost to the Bulls with Kyrie and Kevin Love both out. LeBron did something to his ankle in the third quarter, came back when the game got close again before Jimmy Butler took over and the Cavs lost.

*whispers* This game doesn't matter one bit.

LEGEND HAS IT: Again, the Cavs have a needed day off/travel day. Tomorrow in Brooklyn, the team starts a six game road trip. It also seems that most everyone on the team is dealing with something, whether it's illness or injury. Perhaps today can play a part in the team getting right, or at least close to it.

ALL DUE RESPECT: The Raptors, Celtics, Rockets all had the night off. The Hornets picked a win against the Thunder in a game where Russell Westbrook did this. In the 10:30 p.m. ESPN game, the Warriors beat a feisty Blazers team 125-117.

JOB WELL DONE: In addition to podcasts, a game preview and a game recap, FTS' David Zavac reviewed another Cavs book as part of his ongoing series. The latest covers Bob Finnan's '100 Things Cavaliers Fans Should Do And Know Before They Die'.

CROWN: SI's Tim Layden's latest feature on a heartbroken family's connection to Tom Brady. Chris Haynes talked to Kevin Durant about KD's relationship with the media. The Verge wrote about how the tech industry forgot about humans in 2016. SB Nation's Paul Flannery and Tim Ziller discussed how a Paul Millsap trade could affect the title picture. Lastly, Zach Lowe's Q&A with Nikola Jokic is delightful.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow as the Cavs have a day off before their road trip.
