Effort? What effort??

And frankly our defense was horrible too. They had a ton of open looks and seemed to get inside the paint pretty easily.

They shot 53% from three, we shot 26%.
That was the game.

Our defense was by far the worst part of it today. The effort on defense was inexcusable. Something's wrong with this team, coming out with such poor effort and execution consistently in the past 4-5 games.

That's exactly why they need to be aggressive to the hoop, instead of chucking prayer 3s. So no, there only minimal effort.

I disagree. We had plenty of open threes that we missed.

I'll throw in the towel IF they beat us in the playoffs this year - once we get Marcus back.

I'll "REALLY" throw in the towel IF they beat us with GTime once he returns.

As good as CLE looked today they'll regress to the mean - and we'll play better.

The effort that they all dressed up and stepped on the court yeah.

The effort of going in the paint, shooting and defense was abysmal. Looked like I was watching a Patriots Superbowl game from last Sunday with the bad offense added into the equation.

Can't just blame effort...other teams simply have better players.

Just knew when Cleveland made those trades the season was over for all the teams in the Eastern Conference.

None of those moves made sense from a value perspective for any of Cleveland's trading partners....none. (Yeah, LA's looking to land LeBron...good luck after giving away the farm.)It wasn't even close to being fair trade value.

Kudos to the Cleveland brass. On the other hand - worst GM's of the year awards for those taking in players Cleveland cast off. Can't think of one that was worth more than a 2nd round pick. Yet, they received top line talent in return.

Jaylen is starting to annoy me.  He's just so freaking passive for long stretches of games.   Beta.  He talks like he wants to out work everybody and be a great player then just stands around like a limp dick while Marcus Morris takes more shots.

This is an overreaction. The cavs got some role players that fit better, but let's not act like they added Paul George and deandre Jordan here. The Celtics were completely flat after the first quarter, and yes, it was effort. I think our young guys need the break badly. Tatum and brown are wiped

I mean, if you saw how they played, do you really think Tyreke Evans would have changed the result of this game?


I think he could have help score in our ever present scoring droughts much more than the 27+ pick of next year will ever help the team.
