Well Love and Kyrie played great. This loss is on Lebron. He was 5-18 from the field. He does this once every couple of years.

LeBron shot badly in the playoffs last year too. Especially the finals. 5-18 is his fault in part and then teammates too. If some folks don't roll into their sets properly, then he hoists bad shots to bail out the team. It's a team game. That's why the Dodgers reference is good because a lot of major names on both squads, but not a good chemistry fit.

JR Smith, TT, Kyrie, Love don't mesh well enough to beat the Warriors/Spurs 4 out of 7 times. I hate to do this to you, but the Miami squads w/ LeBron had guys that bought more into a team game. Let's see how Frye does though. When the Heat added Shane Battier, it changed how the small ball lineup worked because Battier was a high end defender who can slot in at the 4 and shoot from distance. Rather than letting LeBron be GM, the Cavs need to find the right fit to avoid losing too many games like they did last night. They dropped winnable games vs Detroit, Boston, Chicago, etc.

The team is mentally fragile at times and our play reflects it. Sometimes they look like the 2nd best team in the league, other times they look much worse. However, the combination of Love/Irving/James have yet to play 82 games together. Continuity and consistency will be our best friends.

Coming off a B2B we still should've beat Detroit at home but we weren't there mentally on defense early on, and forced wayyy too many turnovers in the 1st half (we had like 13 vs. their 3). Boston got lucky (and we failed). And Chicago was right after our coaching change, when we were so mentally fragile we missed like 12 straight free throws and all sorts of stupid nonsense that game.

This is a championship caliber team that better hope GS somehow gets knocked off before reaching the finals, with a **** ton of potential that they're struggling to reach. It'll take time, though.

That lack of mental fortitude is something that shouldn't exist. Being a championship contender but struggling to beat teams like the Warriors and Spurs consistently is what will cost the Cavs a chance for greatness. Furthermore, GM LeBron needs to give up the reigns. It's not the same as the 2012 Miami squad though. Too many egos that don't want to buy into a good team mantra. Like I said, hate to bring it up because it's an overdrawn comparison that is inevitable, but different people knowing their roles and how to play them well is the difference.

Personally I think you're exaggerating/overreacting a bit. There's plenty of season left to improve, but even with that said...

I think the Cavs legitimately have a decent shot against the Spurs, but the Warriors are on a legendary/record-breaking level. Is it shameful to be considered an underdog vs. the Warriors? Name one team that can consistently beat these Warriors.

You keep referencing the 2012 Heat as if they were gods... they'd get annihilated by these Warriors. Dudes are comparing these Warriors to the '96 Bulls (and have legit arguments that they'd beat those legendary Bulls) so I'm hoping you don't think the 2012 Heat would have a chance.

Are the Cavs where we WANT to be? No. But outside the gargantuan, mega-powerful, record-setting, ****-in-your-face Spurs/Warriors I don't think any team will beat us in a 7-game series.

If the Dubs play in the playoffs like they are playing in the regular season I wouldn't even be upset at the Cavs if they lose to them in the finals. Frustrated? Sure. Sad? Sure.

The 2012 HEAT isn't a good comparison.....this Warriors would whip them in 5-6 games. The much better comparison is the 2013 HEAT, the team that won 27 straight. I'd even have my doubts about that match up personally, given the Warriors have taken what the HEAT did to an extreme.

In any case, the Cavs are only gonna be judged by what they do in the postseason, not now. Those Miami teams had quite a few stupid losses during the regular season, too. They also had like a 2-12 record combined against the top 3 teams in the East entering the 2011 postseason, and they ended beating the Celtics and Bulls in 5 games. Then the Finals happened (still irritates me when the thought comes up). It's why when people try to downplay the Spurs now because they lack some wins against the top teams in their conference, I just laugh. Fans just continue revel in the same stupidity and never learn.

No I don't but there are certain players who get those types of calls. It's just annoying when Curry gets grabbed and pulled around screens and gets no calls that's all. The heat are a handful tho if they get that type of production consistently.

As far as getting away with stuff is concerned ... how does Chris Paul not foul out more often with all the grabbing he does?

Everybody does some grabbing, moving on screens, etc ... but CP3 just clamps guys down sometimes and it's not called as much as it could be. Of course Clippers fans, like CP3 himself, think the fouls are called too often.

Bill Simmons has Clippers season tickets and he was amazed at what CP3 gets away with.

its not mystifying- the talent is really really really high. its basically like a pro team playing against a bunch of jr high girls. The pro team doesnt have to bring their A game.

but what that shows you is when they lose by 30 to a team like the blazers or get it handed to them by the bucks- it shows a complete lack of effort. because it doesnt take a perfect game.

BTW- the heat played about as well as they possibly could tonight. the game they played tonight - i think they win a series against clevland playing at that level for a 7 game series

But they don't seem to have a plan and things go wrong and plays are blown and then suddenly they pull away in the last minutes. It's not just talent, it's magic or something :)

When they lose they seem to lose big and they are just bad most of the game.

I've figured out how to beat the Warriors ... they are 1-3 when held under 100 points. Slow the pace of the game and the Warriors lose 75% of the time :)

I'm gonna make a certain kind of comment that I never do in an online sports forum. No one will EVER be able to point out a ref complaint from me about the Cavs or any other team. But the amount of illegal screens the Warriors got away with last night was atrocious.

I'd be pissed if I was a Heat fan. Draymond and Bogut set illegal screen after illegal screen after illegal screen. It became so blatant that they wouldn't even stand still at all but were basically blocking like they were offensive linemen in the NFL. It's bad enough when it happens throughout the game, but the critical ones at the end were pretty disgusting.

They got called for one late in the 4th, but I'd take those odds as well if I get away with 4 or 5 for every one I get called for. And even after they got called for it, they kept on doing it, and Curry knocked down some big 3's off of 'em.

I watched a **** ton of KG (him being my fav player ever) and I don't think he consistently got away with it like that.

He did. It's one of those things the modern NBA doesn't enforce well. They had a year or two where they really cracked down on it but they don't call it much anymore. Warriors are the not the only team that takes advantage of it but it certainly helps them a lot when Curry and Klay just need half an inch.

Yeah the Warriors are great enough without help from the zebras....but I figured something like that would happen the moment I saw Tony Brothers was the lead official. He's the worst. But anyway, illegal screens and all, Curry and Thompson still had to hit the shots and they did. Miami played about as well as they could considering no Bosh, Tyler Johnson, and a backup PG so I can't complain much. Steph and Klay are just unfair cheat codes.

Obviously I'm a HEAT fan and I'm going to agree with this, but they do it always, not only on last game.

KG obviously was the king of moving screens, but there is a difference with the Garnett screens and the Draymond ones, Garnett maybe would slide a little to the side and give the defender a bump, Draymond is WALKING while setting a ****ing screen, it's amazing, he just walks taking the defender with him like nothing. In the last 2 minutes of last night's game he did 3 moving screens 2 of them were blatant moving screens, the other was more normal, but 2 of those resulted on 6 points for Curry and the Warriors.

That still makes it an illegal screen no matter what way he rolls. But really, the refs don't call it that much, I honestly don't see why more teams don't take advantage of it.

By the letter of the law most screens are illegal and most of the time when a defender fights over the top of a screen they are fouling the screener or the ball-handler. There is a lot of contact and movement there and it's not called very often either way.

Some players are better at getting away with more than others. Paul Pierce and CP3 are masters at grabbing the ball-handler

Come on you have to admit Bogut and Green get away with a lot of moving screens (i.e not stationary when contact is being made with the defender). That's merely a loose interpretation of moving screens... some refs are much stricter than others.

Anyway. Magic have the same focus and energy they did to start the season. This is the longest stretch of good basketball we've had in a while. Usually they only do this for short stretches. Warriors obviously not all there. Bench playing well. Some of the starters are, some aren't. Probably tired from back to back. Still a half to go.

I never came close to saying Green and Bogut don't set illegal screens. It's just that I see illegal moving screens all the time these days. And traveling. And push-offs. And it seems most don't get called.

That still makes it an illegal screen no matter what way he rolls. But really, the refs don't call it that much, I honestly don't see why more teams don't take advantage of it.

Never said it wasn't illegal. Just that it might the reason he gets away with it

curry from 28 to 50 ft is 35-52 this season, better efficiency than making 100%s of your 2s. Just saw this stat on twitter from Ethan Strauss

Wow just a crazy season for Curry

50pts with 10 3s has been done 7 times. 4 are by curry.

Curry in the last 2 years has 50 more 3s than Gordon Hayward has in his career, and he's a good shooter.

I think part of it is that Lillard is going up and Harden is going down. Last year there was a lot of that about Harden ... this year not so much.

I don't hate the Rockets, or Harden, or Howard, or the fans (actually the Rocket posters are pretty good). I do hate Harden's game, aside from his offensive game, is his defense (if we can call it like that) what irritates me. I couldn't watch the second half of last night game, but on the halftime report I remember the crew from TNT reviewing some plays where the Blazers scored easily and saying "it just finding the open man, moving the ball, and I don't know what are the Rockets doing".

They showed 3 plays, the 3 plays involved Harden and on the 3 plays a Blazers player was wide open for a) a dunk, b) a three pointer, c) a layup. All of the three plays were Harden's fault leaving his man wide open. The final result? SEVEN easily scored POINTS for the Blazers.

At this time I don't know if I can call Harden the best SG in the league. I really don't. His defense is a big negative, not just in terms of numbers, also in terms of team morale, you can see Ariza for example frustrated everytime Harden leaves a man wide open. Ariza is a great defender, this season the Rockets small forward position is one of the worst in terms of allowing points. He just ****s up the entire team defense.

EDIT: I also remember watching the last Rockets-Magic game where on the 3rd quarter in less than 3 or 2 minutes I think, Harden made 2 incredible plays playing defense. Here's the video.

Obviously I'm a HEAT fan and I'm going to agree with this, but they do it always, not only on last game.

KG obviously was the king of moving screens, but there is a difference with the Garnett screens and the Draymond ones, Garnett maybe would slide a little to the side and give the defender a bump, Draymond is WALKING while setting a ****ing screen, it's amazing, he just walks taking the defender with him like nothing. In the last 2 minutes of last night's game he did 3 moving screens 2 of them were blatant moving screens, the other was more normal, but 2 of those resulted on 6 points for Curry and the Warriors.

They'll call it more in the playoffs and the players will adjust but yeah, last nights game was the most erroneously reffed game I've seen all year, they really screwed Miami.

Fun fact, KG wasn't like that in Minny. He actually learned that illegal screens were the least called fouls in the NBA from Thibs. Thibs learned that from the supercomputers down in Houston.

Harden is an elite scorer ... there can be no question of that. But even at his PPP when his man is getting a layup at the other end so often his defense more than negates his offense.

He's not always that bad, but his bad stretches are longer than they have ever been it seems and the good stretches are measured in a few minutes.

It's interesting to me at least to compare Curry and Harden last year:
http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/pcm_finder.cgi?request=1&sum=0&y1=2015&p1=hardeja01&y2=2015&p2=curryst01&p3=&p4=&p5=&p6=

They were VERY close with Curry having a slight edge in some areas and Harden having an edge in some.

Then this year:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/pcm_finder.cgi?request=1&sum=0&y1=2016&p1=hardeja01&y2=2016&p2=curryst01&p3=&p4=&p5=&p6=

Harden is very similar in a lot of stats to what he was ... but the results are much much worse.

IMO putting Delly and Kyrie together killed the Cavs. I know Delly is a better defender, either way Lowry was abusing him. Other thing I didn't understand was using Delly as the primary ball handler when you have Kyrie Irving and Lebron James on the court... Not smart.

Interesting. Cavs will really need Kyrie to step it up defensively come post-season. They already have Love and while Lebron is better on that end this year he certainly isn't at his top level anymore. With the possibilities of seeing Lowry again and Curry in the finals he will likely have his hands full in some big match ups later this year.

Wiggins considers himself a SG. He's an inch taller and 10 pounds lighter than Klay Thompson, it's not like he's too big to play SG.

Beal does have to stay healthy to move up to the next tier, but when healthy he's almost there.

He's playing SF because they don't really have anyone else to play sf. They were looking to move Rubio to move Levine to pg though I'm not sure that will work out.

This year he has been sg next to prince to start and since Mitchell is finally letting lavine play 2 he gets sf time more.

Thunder always do the same ****, they play 46 minutes of GREAT basketball and on the last 2 minutes, they find ways to just lose. Turnovers, bad defense, extremely bad shot selection, ISO-ball for 18 seconds and then taking an horrible shot. I mean... So much friking talent on that team. :(

He was clutch and all but the last turnover that gave Warriors possession, then the foul on Iggy (lot of people here saying that wasn't a foul, it was) giving the opportunity to tie the game with 0.7 seconds left on the game and then the dumb foul on Curry. That can erase any great game he had.

thunder warriors second round is starting to look unlikely. Warriors would have to get leaped by the spurs or the thunder would have to get leaped by the clippers to make that possible.

The clippers warriors seems very likely- unless the clippers choke before they get to the warriors like last year.

For the thunder to win it all- theyd have to go through the spurs, then the warriors. I dont think they have the depth to win either of those series. westbrook and durant cant play at 120% for a 7 game series

cant call that int hat type of game. emotions were running high.

besides- refs kinda lured him into it when they called him for a foul when he knocked the ball away while digging in and then dove for a 50-50 ball. even jeff van gundy said that was a clean play. rather than giving warriors the ball they gave thunder free throws (that coulda changed the game from going in to OT. cant screw a guy over like that and not expect him to react.

Coaching, execution, decision making all had major failures down the stretch. Durant, Westbrook, and Ibaka are incredible players no doubt, but wow were there some fundamental errors in that game they should have won.

If it wasn't for the turnovers and the incredible play of Curry/Thompson and the defense on Westbrook/Durant the Warriors have NO SHOT in this game.

Curry/Thompson shot 26 of 47 from the floor 55%
Westbrook/Durant shot 23 of 55 from the floor 42%

The Warriors will be happy to win but they have work to do on their rebounding blocking out and hustle.

Of course as the last game of a 7 game road trip that's a pretty good result. Also the Warriors tied the all-time record for best record on a 7 game road trip with a 6-1 finish.

After the FT he certainly seemed to be over the edge ... but the ref may have had sympathy for him for not calling the shove from Ibaka and let him know "WHAT THE F WAS THAT NON-CALL YOU MOTHER" * "MY BAD DRAYMOND" ... end of interchange. It happens. Earlier this season Draymond was telling a ref he screwed up on a call and the ref's answer was "I know" and Draymond patted him on the shoulder and went on with the game. As out of control as he gets I think he respects the refs and they are learning how to deal with him which, fair or not, is how this happens with stars in the NBA.

Absolutely, I agree. I've seen guys get T'ed up for way less, so I just found it funny how he was flipping out (rightfully so) and nothing happened. As you said though, he's a star, and that probably gives him more of a pass in getting T'ed up.

And I agree, while certain people think the Warriors could sweep to the NBA Finals, I don't see them beating the Thunder in 4 games, Durant and Westy are superstars, one of them or both are going to get hot in one of the games and win it. As for winning 3+ games... I don't know about that.

It's kind of hard to believe with as many games have been played in NBA history that the best record for a team on a 7 game road trip is 6-1. A team has won 33 straight games, 28, 27, 22, 20 etc ... but never 7 in a row on the road.
