I think blake is a good player, but like you said. He will not being dunking on guys all game. Just do what the Cavs did to him or hell make him take jump shots.

They're playing the Cavs. Missing three of their better players. And Wade is getting absolute gifts from the officials.

Freaking Dwyane Wade has got to be my least favorite player in the entire damn league.

Who is going to beat them in the playoffs?

Maybe the Knicks or OKC.

Who knows. Did you think the Mavs were going to beat them last year? That's why they play the games. Miami has exactly one player for whom crucial playoff moments are not too much to handle. And they still don't have a center or a point guard.

This whole team is a damn joke, scott included...worthless.....Grant better clean house, if we are going to have to watch crappy product, i rather not pay jamison 15 million to clank 45000 shots a game and give up 40 to his guy every night...andy and kyrie are the only nba caliber players on this team...And someone tell ramon its ok to push wade back when youre getting backed down like a 5th grader...christ..lol the one game anyone in that arena cares about this year and its over halfway through the first. Kinda shows you how far away we are from being relevant again...thats why i'm getting rid of anyone over 30 and trying to stockpile picks for this deep draft coming up

I remember seeing the Cavs cruise through the playoffs until they hit a Boston team that was "too old" and then get their asses handed to them, too.

Considering I doubt they make it out of the East this year, I don't think OKC will get the chance. Slow the game down and sprinkle in some 2-3 zones from time to time and you'll beat Miami in a 7-game series. I can tell you one thing about whoever knocks them out: they'll have an excellent center.

I agree. If Carmelo can mesh with Jeremy Lin (and Lin can keep playing at the level he's playing at now) then that team has a chance to be something special. A (potentially) excellent PG with two top scorers and a top-flight center is the recipe for success in the NBA.

As for this game right now...this type of score is to be expected when you're clanging shots off the rim and nobody is even attempting to get offensive rebounds against a team that can only win by fastbreaking you to death. Maybe our ROY should consider making a shot.

That hit that Battier just gave defending Eyenga is a foul if its anyone on the Cavs guarding Wade.

Wow. Dwyane Wade just drew a foul by posting up on Gee and then flopping when Gee pulled the chair out. Then Norris Cole drove to the hoop and leaped and landed but didn't shoot until he had already landed, was untouched, and drew a shooting foul. Then LeBron just drove untouched to the basket and drew a foul. Sickening.

Cole moving into Gee and draws the charge. Neverending.

Tough to win when you shoot under 40% from the field and your opponent shoots 67% from outside the arc. And you're missing three key players. Not gonna be too upset about this one, other than the atrocious effort on the offensive glass. At one point somebody on the Cavs shot a three and all five Cavs players were outside the arc before the ball left the shooter's hand.

Kyrie's gonna have to step his game way up if they want to have any success in injury depletion mode. 33% from the field and 2 assists isn't gonna cut it.

please stop the Knicks blather. no team without great team defense that can constantly mix things up and make the Heat take bad shots is going to beat them.

a team like the Knicks getting in a track meet with the Heat in the playoffs and not playing defense other than Chandler and Jeffries? that's a sweep folks.

Chicago is the only hope in the East and it's slim (Orlando if someone gifts them a wing defender and they keep Dwight). OKC, Memphis, SA, and a few others at least have a shot from the West.

i like Markieff Morris. and, yeah, they need to trade Nash just to bottom out and start building back up, but it's such a fair-weather town that it's tough to do (they support the Suns more than the Dbacks, Cards, Coyotes, but still alot of non-lifers in that city make it pretty fair-weather)

Man, they're drooling over Miami's "amazing" 24-7 record to start the season. Don't seem to recall that sort of hoopla when the Cavs were 26-5 or 33-8 in 2008...

Anybody gonna be surprised if JJ Hickson lights the Cavs up tonight?

Haha. I'm surprised he didn't going considering the Cavs' difficulty with athletic stretch-4 types. I guess Thomas and Cousins were doing more than their fair share though. That Thomas kid looked real good. Near triple double.

91 = combined points for Westbrook and Durant. They alone, outscored 6 NBA teams today. First time since 1996 Bulls (Jordan/Pippen) that 2 teammates each scored 40 or more.

OKC could be the only team that has a realistic chance of beating the Heat right now.

If it's any consolation, according to the 2k12 Assaciation I'm currently on, Lebron & Co.don't even make the Finals in the next 3 years he's there, and he opts out, and signs a MLE (cause the only team that could afford him, Me, Cleveland, chose NOT to sign him) with Charlotte..

And now in 2015-16 in my first year making the playoffs finally, first round is Charlotte #1 vs. Cleveland #8!

Damn it I'm partially wrong. It's the first that it's happened in the regular season since MJ and Scottie. Jalen Rose and Reggie Miller went for 40+ in the playoffs after Pippen/Jordan.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/200005060IND.html

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook & Serge Ibaka are 1st teammates with 50-pt game, 40-pt game & triple double in same game

Hopefully the Cavs can trade Sessions to the Lakers for 1st round pick(s). Even though it would be late, we could get someone with potential in this deep draft. Tony Mitchell from North Texas intrigues me if he declares. 6'8" 220lbs small forward with speed and athleticism. Strong as an ox. Very efficient on the court. For some reason went to North Texas instead of Missouri and he was a 5 star recruit. Think Michael Beasley meets Ron Artest. His ceiling is quite high. His floor is also quite low. He's a boom or bust type. He can hit the three, defend threes and fours, and is pretty damn good in transition. He's got a great wingspan for a three, can rebound tremendously well, and can block shots at a pretty high rate. He's a tweener at this moment in time since he has the ability to play the three but might ultimately be a stretch four that can beat his guy off the dribble and get to the rim with sheer athleticism. When he was in high school he was measured with a 7'2" wingspan so a 6'9" small forward with a chiseled frame and long arms is basically a premier defensive player in the NBA. While Beasley meeting Artest doesn't sound great, I'm more or less talking about Beasley's offensive potential coming out.
