That was the laziest I've ever seen these Cavs play. Freaking ridiculous.

LeBron + Kyrie go 20/28 from the field for 45 points.

Like... how do both only combine for 28 FGA in the whole game? How? LeBron was only 5/6 at halftime and 7/9 in the 2nd half.

LeBron with 41 minutes and 12/15 from the field... NO WAY.

Part of the reason our defense sucks is because our offense is putting NO PRESSURE on the opposing defense. We're just settling for long 3's that turn into fast break points for the opponent.

We lose to a Hawks team by 14, IN CLEVELAND, minus Schroder, Bazemore, Howard, and Millsap :laugh2: :laugh2:

As they should. They already had wiped the floor with the game, and Westbrook was in the game down 20+ for one purpose, trying to pad. Glad the worst D out there shut it down.

Lmao ya think? They were down 20+ and he was flailing for 3 point Free Throws (and getting them). It was honestly pathetic dude. Worst failed attempt at 60 I've ever witnessed. Though Booker' s 70 was also unabashed pathetic stat padding.

When a guy is on fire your not supposed to feed him. 5 passes before the ball hits the ground. Anything else is Trash Basketball! We've evolved beyond points. Don't let yourself enjoy the game. A guy on your favorite team just scored 59 points. Find a reason to hate it. Btw, congrats on getting back to 500. I think you should trade Lillard and McCollum for 2025 draft picks.

Yes, you always want to feed the hot hand in the last 45 seconds of a blowout win and jack up shots with 20 to go on the shot clock (flailing for 3pt shot fouls and getting them at the end was my fave part. Pretty sure he had 10 points in the last 2 minutes of a game that was well out of hand). It's just sound bball. And by all means, it's the Westbrook way.

Typical responses from a certain Warriors fan.

"I bet on them. I win. I always win. Even when I lose, I win."

"You're just upset KD left. I would be too."

"I'm being objective here because I WATCHED the game. Oh, you were AT the game? You're clearly not being objective."

"Can't wait for the Warriors to win and beat the Cavs." (pre-2016 Finals)

"Can't wait for the Warriors to win and beat the Cavs." (2017)

"Look at me. I'm gambling and having so much fun telling the whooping population of 20 people on PSD. "

This guy is so quarrelsome that he'll probably find anything to pick on just to start an argument. At least with a few Warriors fan, they're entertaining and although incredibly biased like any other fan, are calm. This other guy is a total nutjob. Sounds like the guy who you can't take out to the restaurant because he'll just moan and moan about the food/waiter/service/lights/table being too high/chair squeaking. Can someone just ban him already so he can go jerk off to his gambling achievements elsewhere?

Bro you're an antagonistic loser who loved me before I started calling you out on your hate and general lack of depth in all posts. I think I was the first person to show congrats to the Cavs after mounting their epically historic come back. That's a series in no way they should have won. And I fook the L, monetarily and on here. I accepted it. You don't accept ****. You just talk. I actually DO out my money where my mouth is, and the fact of the matter is that you find out a ton about your own bbiq when you do so.

They are the best in the East, but these lapses going into the playoffs are an issue. Switches are extremely tough to switch when you are on months and months of playing very league-average basketball. If I was a Cavs can I'd be pissed. But agreed, in the East, no team right now is scary enough to make me think Bron is not battling the West in June.

It's just annoying to watch such blatant stat padding. A shot here and there who cares. But things like the Suns intentionally fouling to get Booker extra chances at the end of a blowout, Westbrook's rebound hunting over his own bigs, and again with Lillard last night. It's just stupid stat padding. I'd be fine with it if everybody did not make a huge deal of how impressive the stat totals are (and rest assure, they would not exist if you guys did not care so much about big box score numbers).

I agree, making that switch is that much more difficult. What also has to be concerning is how much they depend on LeBron. It's like watching two different teams sometimes. Opposing teams know they can make their runs once he sits. Just need to stay afloat when he's on.

If Westy wins he will have the 3rd worst MVP FG%. The player he's most often compared to, Oscar Robertson, shot 60 points better when he won his MVP.
