    Cavs defense has been so bad, it's the reason I think they're gonna win this series in 5 instead of a sweep....

    Lbj is going to make PG some extra money.


    Cav's should win in 5, but I feel that it will go 7. I remember after Hibbert had a big series against the HEAT he got that big contract; I hope Roy brought Lbj a gift or something.

    I was just looking at defensive ratings since mid-season ... the Cavs shocked me by being 2nd from last in the NBA in that time. What?

    I was mostly joking, but yes, they really have struggled in the 2nd half, especially defensively as you mentioned. I think some of that has to do with the signing of Kyle Korver to be honest. That and regular season fatigue most likely. But this is a team that barely put together 50 wins (finished at 51). I still remember in '08 when the Warriors won 48 and did not even make the post season. I expect the Cavs to turn it on a bit, but it's tough to imagine that a team can be mediocre for half a season and then just become top contenders.

    I could be wrong but i dont remember seeing a lot of high post LeBron action in the regular season. I think that was done by design to throw teams off once the playoffs start. They were a different team in the playoffs last yr from the regular season and I think they will be again this yr.

    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    PG still gives me nightmares from last yr. For that alone I will say Cavs in 6 but I can see this as a 4 or 5 game series.

    Cavs going to run over the Pacers and people will quickly forget about their troubles. Same **** different year. Last year they stumbled to finish the season and people and the media were bla bla blaing about their struggles, all for mute.

    Spot on. We NEVER ran Lebron (and some of our horned sets) in the post this year. It'll be different this year.

    But yeah PG worries me. He's the truth.

    Cavs sweep.

    Its playoff time. Every players intensity will rise and that's when defense will improve. If the Cavs were playing the Heat It might go 5 or 6 because they had our digits. but not worried about the Pacers at all.
