Hawks get a game 4-1 Cavs

I got Cavs in 5.

I do think the Cavs will have more blowouts than the Detroit series. Atlanta won't play as hard as Detroit but they're more skilled as a team, so I do see them winning a game, with a long-shot to steal a 2nd game.

One thing that concerns me is how our bigs play. Last year we destroyed their bigs with the Thompson/Mozgov combination, but Mozgov sucks badly this year.

Jeff Teague is the catalyst for Atlanta. If he plays well, they can win, if he sucks, they lose. Last year we played underneath the PnR's and forced him to shoot, so it'll be interesting to see if that still works or if Atlanta has an adjustment.

Yet again Lebron has to do it all basically for them to win.... And people think this team can beat the warriors/spurs/Thunder? They wont even be able to get passed the heat :pity:

Its a shame because the Hawks are a good team but until shroader becomes a superstar they have no chance and match up horribly bad against the cavs.... I think the Hawks could easily beat the heat but I think the heat could beat the cavs... All about matchups.

Was at the game. Freaking crowd was terrible, man. We keep doing these stupid ticket lotteries and giving these enormous discount tickets for our playoff games. The result is a bunch of fans that literally don't give a **** about the game but show up just because it's an event to go to. They don't even know how many quarters it is and 99% of the time have their faces shoved in their iPhones. Ugh. /rant

Anyway, Cavs have had a problem all season when we have a big lead. We grow complacent and allow teams to come back.

We really need to correct that. I'm hoping tonight was a little bit of a wake-up call. Having that week off was great since we played all out the first half, but we failed to match that intensity in the 2nd half.

I'm not TOO upset about it since it still took a barrage of Schroder 3's (a 32% 3pt shooter) to get Atlanta back in the game. Otherwise we played extremely well defensively and was controlling the game for the most part.

ATL didn't give up, though. They were matching bucket for bucket and refused to let the Cavs blow the game away in the 1st half (we couldn't easily been up by 20 but they kept at it). GG. On to game 2!

What advanced statistics do I need? NBA refs gives the current star players favorable calls. LeBron has gotten them his entire career but this season, hasn't. Is there an issue with what I said or are you just confused? In short, LeBron hasn't been getting the favorable calls he used to get. Please tell me why statistics are even needed here. Please stick to your Heat vs Toronto thread. I don't want to read about these NBA refs ruining the game for Miami.. because I'm sure you'll use that same excuse when they play Toronto.

No need to use it if the games are fairly officiated. I'm just under the impression when it comes to you that nothing is true unless there is an advanced statistic partially because you've never played and don't understand certain things. This is why I am needing an advanced statistic from you.

I'm just curious because everyone is really counting them out these days. All it takes is for KD+Westbrook to have great games at the same time (which is likely) and for Kawhi or Aldridge to have a bad night. We have two of the top five players right now. I had SAS winning this in 6 or 7 but it's like a 40% chance for OKC.

Well you would think 2 top five players wouldnt blow league leading 14 games with a lead entering the 4th quarter, would you? They have shown problems in closing games out all year long. They dont involve the rest of the roster nearly as much as they should and hence opposition knows it's gonna be either of those 2 guys almost at all times. Easier to plot defensive schemes against them. Not saying they cant win, I just dont see it.

LMAO dude the East sucks ***. Every team has either no superstars (and no just cuz you were an all-star don't make you a superstar) or have just 1 superstar (Wade, Melo, PG, Butler, Wall). And then you have the Cavs with 3 superstars plus 8-10 role players who can score and aren't your average benchwarmers. The East is pretty even but none can compete with the Cavs.

The fact you even think the Rockets are better than the Pistons just shows you don't watch any basketball outside of your Lakers. Pistons starting five can compete against any team. It's their bench that really suffers a tough dropoff. Even then, the Rockets don't have a bench anyways.. Rockets got blown out by 20+ by the Warriors without Steph Curry.

You were doing so good man... Until that...

I don't know why some people think Houston is a great team, maybe they are living in the past or maybe they just assume because a "superstar" is there they are a great team. They are an horrible team, no defense, no team offense, no team chemistry, I mean... They barely made the playoffs.

East this year is so much better than the West, that is laughable. The first round in the West was a cakewalk for every team, the easiest first round match-up on the East wasn't that easy because the Pistons played GREAT basketball and every game was close.

Lebron and Wade finally head to head. Could actually go 7 but ultimately the Heat have NO answer for Kyrie...

Idk, if Toronto keeps tackling Wade we may get in to the ECF with Wade having both legs amputated.

i really don't see how miami can compete with cleveland unless miami has been coasting in the playoffs so far and we havent seen them in their best yet.

Cavs will sweep the Hawks, while the refs are going to let the Heat vs Rap series go the distance so who ever wins can be all nice and fatigue when they face the Cavs and get swept and moonwalk their way to yet another Finals and then lose to whoever wins the West lol

Lol it will be a different story in your house, believe that. I'm mad they tricked off the game yesterday with all those turnovers, this should've been a clean sweep.

I know I'm still shaking my head at that **** last night. Very confident headed home although we shouldn't even have to take another trip out to Toronto. Just gives LeBron more rest.

These Cavs are scary... They are hitting threes at an amazing pace, Hawks defense was one of the best on the Regular Season. Cavs just have their number.

Why do so many players feel that they can just take cheap shots at Lbj... I mean he needs to start knocking players out during the regular season. This is crazy.

Just because he doesn't let you win a game, you get embarrassed so you try to act like a tough guy player.

Maybe all the blame should just go towards Lbj, he should have always been 4-0 teams, from the beginning.

Cavs have a great group of 3 pt shooters, but none of them can get looks when Bron isn't in the game. Kyrie is good at getting his own shot, but thats about it. This team would not be nearly as good without Lebron demanding so much attention.

Yeah that's because they play with a guy who is not a ballhog and who doesnt care about how many times he is shooting the rock unlike ...ahem ahem. These guys that are shooting 7/8 threes a game, have been playing for years and none cared what they did until ofcourse they started playing with someone who is making them look like Klay Thomson.

Either way, Cleveland moves on..... awaits a battered Toronto/Miami team.

So.... They're probably representing the East.

This idiot reporter is so trying to bait Lebron into a bad answer on who he'd want to deal with between the Raptors and Heat... She needs to give that **** a rest.

Phil would go crazy Kobe went through a much harder conference every year in all his championships. I'm not taking anything away from Lebron but don't act like going through the east with two all star caliber players by your side is something to brag about. Why are you even bringing Kobe up. Let the man retire. No need for Kobe vs Lebron anymore.

Or the need to add a superstar to going along with that roster specifically a dominant wing player. Put Melo , Paul George, or Durant on that team with that roster, they would be a force to be reckoned with. The problem with Atlanta his the lack of a superstar to get them shots when they are in a pinch. This is why I agree with you and they need to blow it up and build through the draft now. They will never contend with that roster.

Wasn't meant to diss Kobe as much as it did. Kobe is a baller. Really just meant to focus on the positive effect Lebron has on scrubs. I don't. JR is playing better with Lebron than he would with anyone else at this stage of his career. When he won 6th man, he was in his athletic prime, and he was one hell of an athlete.

Well your "ahem" i'm guessing is Kobe, who has 5 rings and a 70+% winning percentage in the Finals unlike a certain someone who only has 2 rings and a Finals winning percentage of 33% ahem ahem.

The Cavs had a few real close games though. along with blowouts. They had big leads and blew those leads only to get another big lead etc... The Cavs are also a veteran team so I'm not worried about that at all. I think its quite overrated to be honest. Maybe if we are talking about a very young team that hasn't experienced this yet, But cavs will be fine on that front.

Lue has also adjusted some, using Frye much more, taking Moz completely out of the rotation etc...

They didn't have adversity because they played too damn good, that Pistons team was great and played a hell of a series. Cavs just were better, same thing with the Hawks, they had close games and executed down the stretch. I don't see anything wrong with that.

They just have been on a roll.
