NEWS

Covers Preview - LeBron James is more interested in winning his fourth NBA title than where he stands on the all-time scoring list, so the health of teammate Kevin Love and others for the rest of the season - beginning with Saturday's game against the Charlotte Hornets - is paramount. Love missed Friday morning's shootaround and was a game-time decision with back spasms, but responded with 28 points in 15 rebounds to help Cleveland win its third straight game, 114-84 over the Miami Heat.
