Fear the Newsletter: Don’t ask Tyronn Lue about LeBron’s minutes

That and more on today’s show.

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers 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: The Cavs practiced Wednesday with Ty Lue's comments about LeBron's minutes being the big takeaway from practice. In short: he's not concerned.

LEGEND HAS IT: The Cavs are off again today.

ALL DUE RESPECT: Wizards 103, Hawks 99. Washington leads 3-2. Celtics 108, Bulls 97. Boston leads 3-2.

Tonight's games: Raptors-Bucks Game 6 with Toronto leading 3-2 and Spurs-Grizzles Game 6 with San Antonio leading 3-2.

JOB WELL DONE: David Griffin is set to be a free agent, and that's a problem. The Cavs got what they needed from the Pacers series. Some LeBron business news. And Tristan Thompson says a few games off did him some good.

CROWN: First up, pour one out for Justin Verrier and Ethan Sherwood Strauss, who were let go as part of ESPN's mass layoffs. Here's ESS on how the Warriors built their defense and Verrier's deep dive into the Pelicans' injuries. BR's Howard Beck on why there isn't a next MJ anymore. Deadspin's Tom Ley on the end of Russell Westbrook's season. And The Ringer's Bryan Curtis on ESPN's layoffs.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk again tomorrow.
