Wonder if the Cavs will be cheated tonight

If it's close enough where a whistle (or lack of one) could decide it then it's their own fault.

Haha true! I was just saying because I watched the Warriors gave again. I knew the officiating was bad but idk if I was caught in the moment or what but they definitely ****ed the Cavs way more.

I agree.

Cavs need a win and a Celtics and Raptors loss. That 1st seed is right there for the taking.

This is honestly the worst time to play OKC. Westbrook is in MVP mode and you can see that everyone is buying in.

That Dallas loss sucks so much right now.

I'm still not buying in but Westbrook has been the sole reason we have been winning games lately. I hope it can continue and that PG/Melo continue buying in. I think PG just has to realize that he's a defensive stopper for us and that Melo needs to start playing like a teammate and not as if he was in NY. We also lost to Mavs lol. It happens. Teams just don't take them serious and Mavs catch them off guard.

What makes that loss especially frustrating is the Raps shot 30% from the field, held the Mavs to 13 points in the 4th quarter and still had a chance to win it in the last couple minutes. They just needed to be average or slightly below, and they would of have won.

But yeah I've liked the way OKC is playing. I agree on your take about the way they executed in the 4th against the Rockets. However, the offense is looking much more fluid. Should be a good one tonight. DeMar will be in for a long night, PG always gives him problems.

Beautiful game by OKC today. Carmelo is finally passing up on bad looks and Russ is a straight monster. A few improvements on our bench so we can get PG some 2nd unit action would give us a great chance to compete. Also liking Steven Adams but part of me will always dislike the guy because he's taking so much of our salary cap %.

We have two top ten perimeter defenders, Russell Westbrook, and Carmelo Anthony. Get them some shooters who can knock down consistent shots and we are set. Carmelo has been on fire since our winning streak began. And Adams is getting easier shots than anyone not named Clint Capela. We will be a top four seed by the end of the season. Would love to get our hands vs a healthy Rockets.

Yup. I never take them serious. They seem to cave under pressure and just give in to it. Fake contenders, really. I have no idea how they consistently win games and get mistaken as an elite team all the time but they are a 2nd tier team masquerading as an elite team.

It all comes from the games missed by Zaza, Green, KD, Curry, Iguodala, Livingston, McCaw, Young ... as they get healthy they have more experience in different roles. Earlier in the year the bench guys were deferring on offense to any of the big 3 starting scorers even if it was a good shot to take, now they are shooting the ball, learning where they want it and how best they play together. The same stuff was happening in 2015 ... they'd win one way, lose a player, struggle, figure it out, then when the injured player came back the team had improved. It's fun.

Every healthy year is a heck of a caveat ... he's had exactly 1 year where he played more games than his rookie year. Most of the counting stats and advanced stats in his rookie year were better than most other years of his career. He was focused in his rookie year, since then his game has been all over the place. I admit he's been on some very poorly run teams and had some pretty bad teammates and coaches, and I'm happy he's having the best year of his career ... but he was BAD a lot of years between his rookie year and now, and he hasn't been getting better year after year.
