Cavs’ Hughes sits out after death of brother

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Cleveland Cavaliers guard Larry Hughes
sat out Game 3 of the team’s Eastern Conference semifinal set against the
Detroit Pistons on Saturday.

Hughes was in St. Louis with his family mourning the death of his

short-handed Cavs to a hard-fought 86-77 win over the Pistons in
the game.

James netted 15 of his 21 points in the final frame, pulled down 10 rebounds
and dished out 10 assists for the Cavaliers, who got back in the series
and now trail 2-1 with Game 4 scheduled for Monday at Quicken Loans Arena.
