Raptors vs Cavs should have been a nationally televised game. Cavs are in a three game losing streak. Not a huge deal considering it seems like they're just strolling along but not a good thing too if they are losing four straight games.

Westbrook will go for another triple double. I'm starting to think he'll average it by the end of the season now -- which should get him MVP if he can keep a winning % over 60%.

Looking forward to that Jazz/Lakers game too. Jazz has been really fun to watch this season.

Cavs vs. Raptors, round 3.

It sucks too that the 4th game is the very last game of the year. Most likely it'll be a waste.

Milstar won't like my take on this game. I don't see the Raps winning tonight. The Cavs are hungry for a win and i can't see them losing 4 in a row.

No it's ok man, it should be an interesting game, I'm gonna put down some $$ though, we are just as hungry to prove we can beat them

Not sure the details surrounding broadcasting a game in Canada nationwide in the USA, I'm sure there are some rules there keeping it off the airwaves.

Cool to see Embiid play tonight. Not sure if okafor is playing.

Without Jokic, Nurkic has to show up.

That being said Denver continues playing their worst basketball of the year and a game I can see going the 6ers way.

Vee-Rex
12-05-2016, 08:54 PM
Lowry has been playing well lately (they said he made 23 of his last 33 shots beyond the arc... wow). It was great timing too - right when Derozan started cooling off a bit.

I want to see non-LeBron players score more in the paint for the Cavs.

LeBron fell in a similar way but his mutant blood healed him within minutes.

But no, that JR one looked bad.

14 FTA for the Raptors vs 0 FTA for the Cavs.. Better not hear about the refs after this one! Good god...

Hopefully Lue doesn't get too '3-point happy' and leave Tristan out for longer than he should be.

Yeah. He was slowly being phased out of the rotation but JR's injury brought him back in.

We've been experimenting all year with Felder, Liggins, McRae, and Dunleavy... and so far none of them have impressed at all. We could have a problem on our hands if we can't get a better wing player.

And the problem with the 4 I just named... they all miss shots, defend poorly, and get turnovers/fouls, etc...

We're really not playing well right now.

Vee-Rex
12-05-2016, 09:53 PM
Honestly just happy to be up by 1 after that half.

For some reason in the last week or so we're struggling to get transition points. Opponents are getting too many easy buckets, making too many tough shots, and getting too many offensive rebounds (Clippers and Bulls killed us on the boards so badly).

Embiid has been hot garbage tonight. Disappointing. He's a flopper too which is annoying from your 7 foot monster.

Giannis man.. this guy is insane.

Last 7 games:

25 points
57%
10 rebounds
6 assists
3 steals
3 blocks

Can't believe Chronz thought KM was a better player...

Well the Raps aren't shooting that well from the floor. Our defense has been a bit better in the 2nd half but the Raps need to solve the wide open 2Pat missed shots.

Still another quarter to play and LeBron looks a little winded so you guys can still win.

I think a big problem Toronto has with Cleveland is that they can't utilize JV well. His perimeter and pickNroll defense is horrid. When the Cavs roll with Frye or Love at the center and Bron at the PF it causes mismatches.

Raps trying to pull off a miracle... guess not, can't say nothing about that one, definitely the right call. Ya JV played like trash tonight, he's definitely capable of more. The difference tonight was knock down shooting

So Embiid undoubtedly had his worst game as a pro last night:

16 points on 5-15 shooting, 4 rebounds, 1 ast, 5 blocks in 26 minutes

Saric continued his bursting onto the scene and in 25 minutes was 6-12 for 17 points and 8 rebounds. No asts but he did make a lot of nice passes that his brick handed teammates dropped or missed the shots.

Their team shooting stats were actually pretty par for the course for them though. 51/38/77 with 14 threes and 27 free throw attempts. Their average this season is 50/39/79 with 12 made threes and 25 free throw attempts.

They do have a tough 5 game road trip starting Wednesday against the Clippers and then on to Utah though, so we'll see how they fare there.

I mean... it sounds great and all but he couldn't make a single shot in the Finals.. for two straight Finals. We knew what the Warriors was capable of. We just witnessed the GREATEST scoring show from Klay last night. This team should be destroying 85% of the league. Warriors have maybe three players better than the best player on most NBA teams. That's scary.

Spurs got the gritty win in Milwaukee. That's the mark of a veteran team and coaching right there. Milwaukee is a tough team @ home and are just one of those mediocre/decent teams that can beat anyone there.

Didn't hurt that BAE was in foul trouble in the second half, heh. But a win is a win.

I don't get too upset over regular season games, but when it was a 30-6 FTA advantage in the 3rd quarter for those guys, I was losing my mind lol. Then they ejected our guy Bertans and Beasley for some pushing and shoving. They were just wildly inconsistent last night.

I was proud of the guys for coming back, (I figured they would after shooting 31% in the first half) from down 15 in the 3rd. Dedmon really spearheaded the comeback, and Kawhi/Aldridge closed em out
