They have LeBron and the Cís donít. If they win the series that will be the difference. Sunday will be amazing or another LeBron love fest. Better not play scared.

And every team in the league is trembling because our two best players are out....

I didnít think we played scared tonight, LeBron just put in one of his wood performances.

Our defense for the most part was lethargic and our offense in the first half was way too inconsistent.

I think the crowd will get us going early and we need to set the tone and demoralize them.

I did like how we didnít quit even down 16 in the second half.

We know who we have available to play and Brad needs to pull the right strings to make the Finals. We are right there.

I like the fact that Bron played a ton of minutes.

And our max player AL Horford was garbage tonight. If I see one more offensive rebound by his man for follow up points with him flat footed watching I'm going to die. Should have sat him and brought baynes back in to rebound. He's not been effective this series overall.

If the Cís play well theyíll win, they are the better team regardless. These guys have never been here before so I personally donít know what to expect. If Cleveland comes out hot HCA wonít mean a thing.

It's mostly good that Stevens has shortened the rotation - but I'm sure we are tired. Might be good to play a few more (very carefully) on Sunday. Why did we stop throwing Ojeyele at Lebron for short stretches ? He plays him well and I say throw the kitchen sink at James on Sunday. Different bodies, double sometimes and sometimes not, play off then play him tight, everything to keep them off balance. When our defense is flying around, we win.

Monroe only played 6 minutes. Brad is going with 7.

Lebron can get his in game 7. But the question is, can he keep it up with only 1 day rest and low chance of his supporting cast stepping up? Cavs cast plays much better in their home court but how much better will have they played in the garden?

The first 3 games suggest we got this and those games weren't exactly competitive.
