Cavs have come out playing with a lot of intensity especially on defense.  Remains to be seen if they can keep that up.

LeBron's finishing is so insane man

He's pretty much unstoppable in transition.

There is no way to defend that. Unless you have cloned Lebron in a lab somewhere.

Calderon can't guard anyone on our roster...

Tatum needs to learn how to use his left hand on left side drives. Got blocked twice.

Three fts for Brown... guesses for how many he hits? I'm crossing my fingers for two

EDIT: OMG he hit them all!

I actually really like how we've played so far. Our halfcourt D has been stifling, only allowing a tough Smith jumper with everything else coming from transition. Offensively, we're getting good looks and just have to start hitting them more.

Outside of those Lebron layups we've been better on both ends so far

We are a little tentative but up nonetheless! Horford seems to go into an offensive blackhole vs Cavs- hope that ends tonight.

Just trade for Kawhi and we'll have the next best thing

Best way to defend him is force him to take jumpers.

Buy a Powerball ticket, folks, Jaylen hit all three of his free throws!
