No doubt BB up close is a great experience. Hockey is the same. You just don't get that with football or baseball.

I like hockey on the glass. You have some glass between you, but in the end you are glad it's there when they start fighting in front of you or a puck smakes in front of your face. I'd be too tempted to pull on the back of a jersey or throw a few punches of my own, which would very likely leave me on the wrong end of things.

If I was 25 I might take my chances, but I am not, so I won't.

I love going to games. The courtside seats were the ultimate experience for me. It was bucket list. I'm jealous of people who can afford that on the regular.

I try to go to a lot of games in general. I like club seats and hunting for cheap ones is a hobby for me. This Friday I'm going to the Hawks playoff game, and on Sunday I'm going to the Atlanta United game. Then it will be it for a while. I think the Hawks will be eliminated and AUFC doesn't play again at home until mid May.

They have a field level club and field level seating for MLS here. You can actually stand/sit on the field. I've done that, but honestly I like the middle level club best as it has the TV view. The field level club used to be amazing, then they decided to cut costs and got rid of the upscale buffet and replaced it with stadium food. Shame on you Arthur Blank!! Ruined a good thing.

Cleveland really negated NY’s physicality last game and needs to continue that trend. Gotta use Garland to get down hill and be aggressive and force Randle to the middle of the paint and taking tough 2’s.

Seems sensible strategy. We could do even more to bore in and force fouls in the paint to sit them down. Shaving the minutes of their starters seems doable. Garland is huge. We need to run hard. Hope we shoot hotter than game one, play vicious D, and work the paint even harder. For The Land!

This game looks like first. It’s what I saw happening. We can’t sustain the physical play, our bench blows, and garland is a nice player but not that guy you can count on every game to carry you. Their guards are destroying us

Cut our own throats last night and they helped us. We are stupid at times on the court. The bench subs killed us at length again.

We insist on throwing three's at the backboard and continue doing it. Kills leads, creates deep turnovers, and doesn't create pressure on their defensive players. We also shoot fewer foul shots. Rubio failed again. What is wrong with Mobley? Stephens seems suited for this rough and tumble. Garland had no answers. When Lopez is a bright spot, then you have had a bad night.

Mitchell. Okoro was benched most of game. We didn't stink up only one end of the court; we were bad and worse after a pitiful first quarter. Not sure we have the spine to play with them, especially at MSG, but we can play better than we did last night. Game four is a massive gut check as it sits now. If we don't go inside and salvage wasted possessions (missed three's and turnovers galore) then sayonara. Have some pride; save some face. Mitchell can't carry an entire bench.

I agree. Three's is the vogue, but I like to see a little more working the ball inside to the post and scoring in there. Making more 2's inside of 8 feet is better than missed 3 after 3.

4 shots at 60% is 48 points. 40 3's at 33% is 39 pts. That 60% might be low.

Well, we had a good third quarter... but still lost (sighs).

That was the first full Cavs game I watched in a long, long time. I always forget that they are on.

I called Knicks in 5, looks to be right, we are so vastly outcoached by a mediocre coach. we have no bench(which we knew all year yet altman did nothing) Our backcourt is so soft...and our "stars" have yet to show up in the same game. Team is a reflection of coaching and this team is soft when it counts. It was a fun season and we broke the stigma of not getting to playoffs without lebron, but we still need about 4-5 players to make any realistic run. Disappointing end but promising season and can only get better from here.

Playoff basketball is about making adjustments and punching the other
Teams in the mouth. If your perimeter game isn't working
Then work the ball inside. Be the physically imposing team.
This Cavs team isn't much different than the Wilkens teams
Just really soft

"Dorothy" has her work cut out for her tonight. I thought that was clever and funny. We have done a few things that hurt them and stopped doing them. We are getting outhustled. Start there; sometimes that sorts other things out. T hope we give a decent account of ourselves. Take it inside, and write off this bench. I imagine I will watch and see more of what didn't work three times.

Already down big. I don’t think JB is the guy. We lack leadership. Getting out worked at every facet. Not a good look for a coach.

Out like mice... this team is a bunch of pansies and our bigs aren't near as good as people try to make them seem.. We need to move one of them. We need strength and those clowns got pushed around by everyone this series.. I think you have to move on from JB quickly.. Its a short window and the dude got outclassed by Tom freaking Thibodeau. He could not see what everyone else in the world could and all his "adjustments" did nothing. You don't want to waste time like we did the Mike brown years when you won because you had top talent player like lebron but can't do anything with it.

This team and this coach have some soul searching to do. We bullied some folks, wins are up, but bench folks and some starters folded. Not a playoff squad yet. We got out-hustled AND outmuscled. We go no deeper if we can't shoot better, including foul shots, defend, and stop wasting possessions with wasted threes. Some of our unproductive folks need to get better or get gone. Consider, fans: Who hurt us the most?

Disappointing end to a very good season for the Cavs. I knew the Knicks were a tough match-up for us, but I didn't think we'd lose in just 5 games.

A couple of thoughts:

--Mitchell Robinson completely dominated Allen. I praised Allen earlier this year, but he looked like a wuss out there. Robinson manhandled him and that was the biggest mismatch on the entire floor.

--Knicks completely out-hustled the Cavs. They got almost every loose ball. It was sickening to witness.

--Thibodeau is an excellent coach. I think he's the best defensive coach in the league.

--I like our coaching staff. I totally disagree about moving on from Bickerstaff.

--I will say that I am puzzled why we didn't continue to blitz Brunson like we did in game 2. We forced him right [he's left handed] and then brought a hard double at him trapping him up high. That really disrupted their offense.

--It's hard to believe guys don't run back on defense, especially in the playoffs. This isn't the NBA of the 80s w/Magic, Bird, Jordan, etc. when teams played hard the entire game.

76ers are a strange team. Maxes and Harden can really get it going but don’t play ANY defense lol. To win in boston without Embiid is crazy

Gotta be honest, it was great to see James and the Lakers dispose of the Dubs last night. It took me a long time to get to this place where it's exciting to root for him.

Can't wait to see the Warriors finally wash their hands of Dramond... so he can wither into obscurity, where he belongs. I don't understand how officials put up with such a cancer on the floor.

Yep. Dramond is pure filth. He tries to hurt people and cries like a baby when he gets caught. I also loved watching Lebron send the Warriors home.

I'm a Nuggets fand and a LeBron fan.

I would really like to see the Nuggets win it all... Jokic is an awesome dude.


But if the lake show take them down I'll be cheering for them in the finals. Another ring for Bron would silence a lot of people.

The Nuggets and Jokic had one of the best 1st halfs of all time, still up 21 in the 3rd and almost blew it. The Lakers just might take this series.

If I were a Lakers fan this is how I’d think too. They figured out to put Rui on Jokic and the Nuggets will never shoot better than last night either. Should be a good series

And the Spurs get the #1 pick again. David Robinson, Tim Duncan, and now Victor Wembanyama, possibly the best C/player to be drafted since LeBron, glad he’s in the west.

Also good for him to learn from Robinson and Duncan, and Gregg Popovich.

Not a Celtics fan and I really enjoy when they lose. However, I'm getting a bad feeling about this series, like the Celtics may win 4 straight even though it's never been done before. Hope I'm dead wrong on this.
