Too funny. I was going to post a Lou Williams offensive oddity thread last night (before his game).  But I got lazy and didn't know if it would be interesting to anyone but me, so I didnt. 

I don't know that many 31 year olds have had the type of career scoring year that he's having.

Cavs not putting any resistance against the Raptors so far.

This is the third game in a row that Cleveland is getting demolished by a good opponent, especially their defense. And Toronto doesn't even have Lowry or Ibaka playing!

IT is having a dreadful night, too - 0-8 with 1 TO and terrible defense.

Outside of a Celtics win not much gives me happiness like seeing the Cavs get whooped.

cavs defense is horrible. Even if they make it out of the east they will get shellacked by the warriors.

Wow. This has to be embarrassing as a Cavs fan. They've legitimately given up and look like they simply don't care out there anymore.

Hell, even IT, who generally plays with a ton of swagger, looks timid and defeated out there.

I was just coming in to say that exact same thing.  They are putrid on def.  Amazingly embarrassingly bad.  It makes me really happy!

75-42 Toronto over Clev right now.

Lebron going to demand for more help now and demand to trade away that BKN Pick  :laugh:

Just too bad Cousins is likely NOT available, and even DeAndre Jordan might not be dealt (depending on how seriously the Clippers feel about wanting to make the playoffs this year).

Other than that, what big man can the Cavs get who could thread the needle even a little? Not many to be honest.

No more slacking off for LeGM. He have to grind for every win now and then.

that is amazingly bad. they look defeated and I don't see how they fix it. its been like this all season.

if cavs end up the #3 seed. It may take a herculean effort for Lebron to drag a team with this defense to the finals. I dont see how Lebron doesnt bounce.

No team in the East will take a game from the Warriors in the Finals. Looks like it's up to the Spurs or Rockets.
