James has played 32 minutes in a game that the Raptors lead by 35. Seems like a waste.

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

VanVleet from Toronto looks good tonight.  When did he get so good?
He is looking good.

Vanvleet, Poeltl, and Valunciunas look good because they're playing 5 traffic cones tonight.

Honestly the cavs have been putrid.


how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck was chris bosh?

How low in the standings does anyone think the Cavs will drop to? I'm thinking 4th in The East.

I could see them at 4th, but I have no idea which other team will get to 3.  Miami?  Wash?  Bucks?  Heat have been winning lately, but I think Wash is better.

The cavs d has been putrid I agree 100%.  But I was impressed with Vanvleet, he was confident moving the ball, shot well, in general looked like he belonged out there.

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.

wonder if Lebron would give IT and the pick back if Kyrie would come back...... ;D


dang IT all.....Bron needs help

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.

? I don't understand this mentality about GS. We've legitimately played them better than any other team for the last three years, and we literally beat them already at full health this season.

It'd be a closer series than people think, especially if we're fully healthy (minus Hayward). I actually think with Hayward we would beat them in a series.
It is incredibly difficult to outscore the Warriors over the course of one game when Durant and Curry play 40+ minutes and one of them is almost always on the floor - forget about two or three games. Unless you have a top 5 NBA talent, which the Celtics do not.

Do you guys think Cleveland will trade the Nets pick to try and upgrade a position? You know LeBron will want them to lol

Washington should already be at 3. The Heat are playing well but I don't know if they can keep it up and so far the Bucks just don't look like a top half playoff team.

I highly doubt it. I think that sends the message that management doesn't think they can win it all this year and are hedging their bets.

LeBron manipulating the GM to make a "must-win" now move when they could improve their future with that BKN pick.

And then LeBron can bounce and go to LA or wherever in the summer. Haaaah.

yup ...thats exactly waht Cavs FO thinking .....no way we are going to loose James and the Net pick ,  not worth risking using it on help for James and then getting blown out in the finals ......left standing empty handed with James flying to LA to sign
