Drew, promoted to head coach when the Cavaliers fired Tyronn Lue on October 25, reached an agreement to remain the head coach for the rest of the season. The missing player in question was rookie guard Collin Sexton, with head coach Larry Drew explaining after the game why he kept the newcomer on the bench.

Drew is 60 years old; he served as the interim coach last season for the Cavaliers when Lue took a leave of absence.

Whoever plays Monday, Drew will be hoping his team does not allow another night where the opponent shoots at least 50 percent. Drew said there was no discussion about anything beyond this season. We're going to try and move forward and keep this team competitive. "My staff embraces the challenge".

Tristan has been solid over his last three outings - averaging 9.7 points, 9.3 boards, 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals over that span.

After an Aaron Gordon jumper cut the lead to three with just under 24 seconds to play (meaning Orlando had to foul), a Cedi Osman pass got stolen by D.J. Augustin, who got fouled and made both free throws to cut the Cleveland lead to one with 18.7 seconds to play.

Race to stop Norway frigate sinking after oil tanker collision
The £500 million Helge Instad was launched in 2007 and is one of five Fridtjof Nansen-class frigates operated by Norway. The shipping site Sysla reported the tanker had been loaded with crude oil and was on its way to Britain.

Cleveland isn't Drew's first head coaching job.

Another blow was a foot injury to All-Star Kevin Love that will sideline him until mid-December. "We didn't handle it and that is why we lost the game".

The U.S. Olympic Committee is moving to revoke USA Gymnastics' status as the governing body for the sport at the Olympic level, meting out the nuclear option to an organization that has botched its own reorganization in the wake of a sex-abuse scandal involving former team doctor Larry Nassar.

"We are pleased to have reached this agreement with coach Drew to continue leading the team on the court", Altman said.
