Well preseason. One team played their guys and the other team didn’t. But yes, you never want to lose by 70 pts lol.

Cavs could be fun to watch. Even Kevin Love decided to play last night.

This is truly next level defensive stuff we only typically see from DPOY type guys. From a 19 year old in his 4th game? Great googly moogly.

Question was asked on the radio this morning...."which 4-4 Cleveland team is more fun to watch, the Cavs or the Browns?"

Holy smokes, Ricky Rubio....37 points off the bench. Cavs now 7-4? Wow....and they are consistently beating good teams.

Cavs wear these teams down by the 4th. Allen and Mobley are so damn good. And the huge plus is they can play together.

they already look like they've been playing together for a decade too.  I, admittedly, was worried about playing essentially 2 centers in the modern NBA, but they don't play like 2 centers. I just wish we'd trade Sexton for someone who can knock down a 3 consistently.

I'm fine with Sexton if he is going to be this version. And if they keep playing well, he likely will. But if they start to lose, he will probably morph back into the dribble, dribble, dribble guy that infuriated so many of us.

But as it stands, with his minutes way down and his attempts way down, he actually kinda fits with this team. They need someone who can take someone 1-1 and create their own shot late in the clock/game and he's really the only guy. Garland depending on the spot can, but not the same way.

Really bad finishing 2 minutes. Rubio missing a FT, leaving Kuzma open twice. But the worst was not having anything towards the basket in our last possession. Garland and Rubio pick and roll isn’t gonna create any mismatch, and then Garland jacks a 3 with Allen and Mobley down low to rebound a drive and float, etc. Ugh.

Garlands shot at the end infuriated me.

I agree it wasn’t a good shot that being said has he or Ricky earned the right to jack it up like that?

It was just bad by JBB IMO. Running action with Rubio and Garland isn’t giving either an advantage. It needed to be Mobley and Garland (or Rubio, but Garland is better). That way you can get a switch, angle towards basket, pick and pop, roll…something. Garland hasn’t “earned” that right, but honestly, with the action JBB drew up, probably a decent outcome lol

Anyone else see the Lebron James "fight" last night? Idiots on Twitter saying Lebron could beat Mike Tyson, in his prime, in a street fight. LOL...Tyson would eat his face.
