Seriously, where is Kyrie right now?

Sprained uterus. 

Dumb comment even for you.

If you're going to quote, take the whole thing.  And thanks.  Is that a rule violation, mods?  No?  I guess I'll respond with an insult too, then -- kiss my ass.

Keep the ignorant sexism to yourself.

Stop baiting/trolling, disrespecting others, etc.  That results in a 10 day ban, Snakehead.

LOL Cavaliers blew the lead. Up 67-51 at halftime, and 81-81 right now. Magic have scored 30 points this quarter and there's still 3 minutes left in the 3rd.

Al Horford this half: 0/2, 0 pts, 3 reb.

Yeah, he's been pretty nonexistent. He's got to step up on nights like this.

Incoming bump from the 'Horford doesn't deserve his contract' thread after the game?

Naw, not from me. I think Al is pretty clearly the most important cog on our team, and at least his defense tonight has been pretty good.

But still, as a leader on a younger team this kind of lack of aggression isn't justifiable. It's not like he's simply missing shots, he's not even looking for his shots. He simply has to be more aggressive, especially since we apparently are only playing Kyrie half the game for some unknown reason now.

Oh I know not from you specifically, but there's always factions of the blog who have outsized opinions on certain players.

Al is the stabilizing force of our team.  But [dang] he's gotta step up this game.

Not really sure what happened to you, Tar, but you sure have changed ever since the IT trade. It's like the trade personally victimized you and changed your personality.

I've got a sneaking suspicion that you're actually IT and you have your wife post for you during game times to suppress suspicion.  ;) ;D

Hopefully Toronto will follow suit.

Toronto regular season good but playoff good?? They seem to do this quite often

Ya Lowry especially has gotten flack for being a non-factor in the playoffs. The bigger the stage, the smaller he gets it looks like.

Isaiah:  3 for 11, Jae: 1 for6...it hasn't been an easy adjustment for the guys traded to the Cavs.

A play designed to get Al a 3 does just that, but he blows it.  Come on Al

Good call by Scal there about how they were playing Al.  That's clearly their focus.  The problem is without another guy who can score and make a play this can happen.  Lets hope guys can step up here and we figure it out.

Baynes is so bad at finishing around the rim.

So, Kyrie is starting, meaning Brad simply limited his minutes in the first half. While Kyrie's D was bad, I'm not sure that justified keeping him on the bench with what it did to our offense.

He really is I have to say.  A lot are far down too.  Kyrie has missed a lot of assists from that.

Now imagine Monroe though.
