Yep, Speights really took over the game during the 4th when Kyrie was out. What I love about Speights is how aware he is on offense. He plays so well with Kyrie because he recognizes when Kyrie drives the bigs are going to shift over and he finds the holes in the defense for easy points at the rim or an open jumper. He's been great for us.
On to the weekends games, I said coming out 1-1 would do it for me I just thought it would be 1 win on Friday and 1 lose on Saturday. Kyrie better have come out with that kind of game though IMO after the game he had Friday where you could see he was cleary disinterested and then his comments afterwards. I think Westbrook was bringing some competitiveness out of him too. It shows though once again (don't want to be too much of a downer) but if KI doesn't go off for over 30 that this team will have a very hard time winning games no matter who they are playing.
Speights was a beast on Saturday on the offensive end. He shows that he has a lot of confidence on that end especially with his 18-20 footers as there is no hesitation when he takes those shots.
Serge Ibaka had some monster blocks though against the Cavs. Ill continue to harp on this but I would love to have a player like him on the Cavs i.e. segway to NERLENS NOEL if the Cavs have a chance this upcoming draft.
Finally, that crowd was crazy especially the fourth. I have not heard the Q that loud since 2009. Great atmosphere there.
-Sam AmicoBobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion) out tonight vs. MIA and Weds vs. CLE reports @BobcatsMartin. MKG took nasty spill Sat.
That's a shame, I was looking forward to seeing him play. After watching the fall he took though I'm just thankful he's ok.
Agreed, Cavs shouldn't take anyone lightly. Every team in the NBA is capable of beating us.
You're clearly underestimating Luke Walton's monster scoring ability.
I just hope we don't trade him back to LA for that bum Howard. Walton was clearly the glue that kept that team together. They still haven't been able to replace him.
I hurt Luke Walton but he really did stable that bench for us. He surprised me lol.
For not honoring a sig bet I now own YEDB90
OSU vs Michigan BBall game is on right now.
I know this is the game thread for the Cavs... But they're not plying tonight. What I've noticed is that Michigan is relying on 3s from Hardaway (5 in a row) and OSU is getting easy buckets. Live by the 3, die by the 3.
OSU has a 5 point lead despite Hardaways rampage from deep.
