Looking forward to the Cavaliers/Spurs game over even the Warriors game today.

Spurs are without Kawhi and the Cavaliers are reeling and riddled with drama, and need a win badly. If the Spurs can maintain an elite level of play without Leonard in the playoffs, and I think they might still be that threat, then they need to stomp teams like this Cavaliers team right now, which will be playing with desperation.

Yep. Spurs without several key players tonight (Kawhi, Pau, Rudy).

Aldridge is gonna feast.

I'm just ready for the Cavs to make some moves. The starters are the problem, the bench is fine. If they can get that first unit up to par they'll be fine.

Lue is ****ing drunk. Wade with 7 minutes in the half while being 2/3 from the field, rebounding, and playing solid defense. Shumpert getting clock for some damn reason. 11 players getting clock. How the he'll are you supposed to have any consistency from your players with these crazy lineups and then never knowing how much they'll play? I think this continues until Lue is fired.

WaDe03
01-23-2018, 10:21 PM
I'm a 9 man rotation type of guy but I keep a 10th ready in case of emergency. You know there's someone on your bench that can play multiple positions. With this team my rotation would be:

IT/Wade
JR/Wade
LeBron/Korver
Crowder/Green
Love/TT

I bring in Wade for IT after 6 minutes and start IT the 2nd quarter at point sliding wade to the off guard position. It would be set at that and guys would never have to wonder and it would be consistent.

Kerr regularly uses the whole roster including a couple 2 way players. I think that's why the Warriors have had so many "injuries" ... he's trying to keep everyone happy while developing chemistry and not giving anything away for the playoffs.

Going with a deeper rotation is fine as long as players buy in.

I bet he's smart with his rotations though. Lue surrounds Wade with non shooters in TT Green Rose but has Korver in at least. So you have 1 shooter out there. Then when LeBron returns he gets Korver and doesn't play with Korver for some reason. So now you have Rose Wade LeBron Green and TT, no shooters. Lue is just dumb as hell. It's a know fact that LeBron surrounded by shooters dominates.

I didn't think Love and IT would be traded but now I'm really starting to wonder.

I do think starting TT next to love will solve a lot of the defensive issues though but Lue refuses to change the lineup.

I think it's going to be pretty big. A lot of guys are saying they're going to make multiple moves.

I just read that the Hill trade is expected to go down tomorrow or Thursday so there's a start.

Lue now says he will make lineup changes.

JR Smith had 0-2-2 tonight in 28 minutes. Has to be the worst starting SG in the league.

IT/Hill
Wade/Korver
LeBron/Crowder
Love/Green
TT/Love

That would be my lineup Friday ;)

Seeing the replay, PG should have been called for an offensive foul on the play ending with Westbrook,s gamewinner.

But then again, Nets last play should have been giving the ball back to Harris for the final shot. He desrved to take it.

The post Hayward injury concerns seem to be hitting all at once. Right now it's basically Kyrie/Horford and a bunch of inconsistent young players unfortunately. That was a big concern at the beginning of the year with so many rookies/2nd year players.

Tatum seems to have hit the proverbial rookie wall. Cs need to get some sort of regular scoring from him and Brown to remain competitive until Hayward comes back or else it will be a lot of the same.

They have a bunch if young kids they are trying to develop. They are going to have lots of ups/downs during the season. They've overachieved this year (just like last year). That's probably a massive credit to Stevens.

I don't think their issues, especially offensively, would be as pronounced with a healthy Hayward but such is life. The young guns are getting valuable experience so hopefully it pays offs down the road.
