I was thinking of starting a World Series open thread this weekend, just to reserve my spot.  My strategy was going to be to let the thread die quick now but then I'd find it and bump it all day the morning of the first game to make sure it floated to the top when the time was right.  It was genius. Everyone would love me.  But, now I sort of feel like my strategy is being mocked by the OP ..... [hangs head in shame] ... so I guess I won't do it.

How would you start a thread with a picture of a toilet?  Nobody would know what you meant, they would think you just misplaced a response...

If we can get a hand in Dunleavy and Gasol's face on the defensive side we should be better.

Can't leave Gasol open round the arc, he's deadly.

I like the move of putting Tristan in the starting lineup. His tenacity and crazy-good rebounding are a catalyst  for so much on this team. If someone can explain to me why LeBron just won't drive to the hoop when he's getting space, that would be awesome. 

HS
elitesmithie's picture

Things favoring Cavs:

Dunleavy and Rose probably won't shoot a combined 1000% from 3(Rose specifically)

Lebron won't play that bad again

Not being off for 8 days

Things that won't change:

1. Gasol being able to make 18 foot shots while wide open

2. Lack of spacing on offense

3.We still have to play people like Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, and Delly

4. Lebron can't pay 45 minutes and be effective on offense and chasing Rose and Butler

5. Oh by the way, Shumpert probably won't give us 20

I'm a homer, Cavs 98- Bulls 94

Positives for the Cavs today are that the Bulls will almost certainly not shoot that well from 3 today. Gasol will not make 90 percent of his jumpers(even  if they are open) and Lebron will not play poorly today. It was a close game last time with all of these things so I definitely think the Cavs will win today.

HS
FROMTHE18's picture

Must win for Cleveland. Go down 2-0 going to Chicago is essentially the end of the line for the Cavs. Doubt they'd be able to go 4-1 over the next 5…3-2 maybe but, obviously that wont cut it. 

HS

Well said 18 - need to step up defensively and have LBJ take over from the opening whistle but not settle for those jumpers unless he's on.

I have this feeling this game will be one of those weird playoff games where a team just dominates. I could see the Cavs blowing up tonight and winning by 15-20. I don't think the Bulls will be on fire and I could see a weird game from someone on the Cavs (like a Mike Miller) where they put up 20+. Add Kyrie and Lebron having a big game and I think they can handle business tonight.

Says a lot about the Eastern Conference the previous two years that he was able to make two All-Star games as a PF/C.  Then a declining Pao comes over this year and takes all Noah's stats away.  How an NBA player can shot a free throw like he's making a chest pass is beyond me.  You are paid to play a game, F'ing practice a little bit, tame your ego and listen to your shooting coach.

Love will be back regardless because we give him the best chance to win and can pay him the most. People don't tend to leave those situations even in Cleveland. 

HS
NewPhilaFan's picture

I think that the way the team came together late in the season and in particular the first three games against the Celtics showed him that he fit very well.  I liked that they used him to post up in the Celtics series since that was a strong point for him with Minny.

Let's Go Bucks

HS
BUCKEYE3M's picture

I hope you're right. I know he felt like a fish out of water for much of the season, because of how he was used versus used to being used. As long as it works out though.

HS
BUCKEYE3M's picture

I was reading about his market value given the injury, so it basically said he wouldn't opt out of his contract (or he would exercise an option). Basically, just said his big free agent payday went with the shoulder...for now.

HS
BUCKEYE3M's picture

In more ways than one... But, I think Cleveland will pay him a max contract (I think they have the space).

Remember when Thompson had 11 OFFENSIVE rebounds against the Bulls in the second game of the season?

Boston wore the entire Cavs team out.

While they won 4-0, every game was a grind.

There are three different types of people in the world.....those who can count, and those who cannot.

At least Smith should return next game well rested.  We won't have to worry about him getting his rhythm back as I think he was born shooting.

With how well Shump has played I would have JR come off the bench and be that instant offense you need off the bench while one of LBJ or Kyrie sits.

That was the original plan when they both came over from NY. I tend to agree. Shumbert comes off the bench for D but maybe what we need is Smith coming off the bench for O.

And Boston prepared them for this type of game - the bulls shooting tonight is horendous however they will have their home cookin and crowd for game three.

Interesting that LeBron is +31 for the game.  He was a man on a mission.  Plus he doesn't like Noah anymore than we do.

NOBODY likes Noah. I bet even his teammates think he's a douche nozzle.

I see from the stats that the offensive rebounds really flipped in the last three quarters.  They were getting all of them early but we now lead 14-11.  Thompson has 6 all by himself.

The Indians are up 5-0 in the 4th.  Maybe a twofer tonight.

Cris certainly has been letting his fandom show lately. I love it.

Hot Take time: If I were Chicago I would lower Noahs minutes. When hes in Lebron can guard him without putting in a ton of effort plus he can roam the paint. Noah wasn't even looking to score. I don't understand why the don't play Gipson and Mirotic more. Atleast they would make Lebron pay attention to them on defense.

Agreed. Noah isn't doing much out there. The players you mentioned would be an improvement over an injured Noah. Also, what's the deal with Dunleavy? He plays an awesome opening 5 minutes then rides the bench the rest of the night.
