Getting the double today would be an awesome Sunday. Hoping the Cavs finish the sweep right after my Preds knockout the Blues!

Let's get this sweep today and get some more rest. I don't think Lowry is going to play again so we should definitely win.

Yes, Lowry is out

LeBron will put this away in the first half. Raptors have lost their confidence. You could just watch it melt away by third quarter game three.

Typical Cavs starting out slow again in the 1st quarter. They look very sloppy and disoriented. Time to turn it up.

This Cavs team is really starting to fire on all cylinders. They started out really poorly on offense today and still have over 50 points with 4 minutes left in the half. Bring on Golden State.

Raps might steal this one. Still little hope of the series but maybe they won't get Punk'd.

Squirrel Master's picture

Yes but still not good enough. I like JV but big centers are not important in today's NBA. Plus a high priced bench warmer in Carroll. Raps need to make a few more changes before they can start touting contender. It is still a good young team though.

Congrats guys. Beat the Warriors! Raptors need to fire their coach for not understanding when a team is making a run and shit isn't working. A real star player would help too!

Nice series from your team SM. They played hard with what they had and being down Lowry definitely helped the Cavs (hopefully) close this in a sweep. Too many stars aligned in Cleveland these days.

It's hard to beat LeBron. There is a reason why he is the best.

That it is but he has a star studded team surrounding. Hard for most of the teams in the NBA to compete against.

Earle’s target practice

bignut2017's picture

I don't blame you for saying this but I hate this narrative that the Cavs are this star filled team when really they're not. Before Lebron, Love was putting up big numbers on a team whose only offensive option was love. Before lebron Kyrie was a flashy PG who just couldn't make everyone else better. Before lebron, TT was a athletic guy who  could rebound but only score 5-6 a night. Before Lebron, JR was a selfish player who wouldn't play d and now he goes toe to toe with the other teams best. I just can't stand how Lebron doesn't get the credit he deserves sometimes for making everyone around him better.  I think if you took the 4 starters out not named lebron and put in Williams, shumpert, Korver, and frye I still think they make the finals but if you took Lebron out of the lineup I think they might have lost to Indy and for sure Toronto.

Good series SM - Wishing your Raps a great off season. Any idea who's returning?

Squirrel Master's picture

Lowry is going to be tough. Young good talent behind him that works with DD and with him going to command max money, not sure if it is wise to pay him. Many raps fans hope Carroll is gone based on his production and salary. JV just doesn't fit the current NBA vs the good teams.

I hope Tucker and Ibaka return but can't sign them and Lowry. Plus Patterson is a FA. He might need to move on. We do have the Clippers pick at 23.

Raps are mainly a really young team behind the starters. Coboclo is coming on and should be a rotation player next year. I really like Norman and hope he gets more PT. I honestly think Norman should play pg with DD at the 2. Just don't think Lowry is long for this team and it's growth, but that might piss off DD as they are best friends.

Short of it, not going to matter until LeBron is retired. They have nobody to compete with him unless they get lucky in the draft.

Seattle Linga's picture

Tucker is a solid player and I think you are right about LBJ. Clearly we are witnessing a much different and focused team than what we saw during the regular season.

Keep smiling - the future is bright up North

OSU069's picture

You guys might have a tough time getting someone to take Carroll off of your hands with that contract. Honestly, I would rather sign Lowry to a huge extension than pay Ibaka 80+ mill, which is what teams will offer him this offseason. 

Squirrel Master's picture

Ibaka is still young enough and a long shooting PF which we haven't had since Bosh. Plus won't resign Patterson if we sign Lowry anyways. Can't lose both the two decent PF we have to pay a ton for an aging pg.

Lowry is a tough call. Love for him to stay but 300 million in him and DD and this is the best we get? Plus he has been pretty bad in last 2 playoffs and injured. With him over 30 already, it might be a Wade situation where hate to see him go but it might be time to move on.

What I hate to see is we devote a lot to this team and next year watch Celts continue to pass us, Milwaukee blow up past us and other teams make the moves to get better. If I were the Cavs, the team next year I would fear is Milwaukee. Not the Raps and that tells me Raps need to make decisions.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

OSU069's picture

Ya I guess. However, I would caution you against getting rid of Lowry that easily. Having a good point guard is probably the most important component to a great team(unless you have Lebron, Kawhi, or KD) and I'm not sure Delon Wright or VanVleet are ready to take over that role. I really like Norman Powell's game but I don't see him as a point guard at all. And yes Milwaukee is going to be a great challenge for the Cavs in the future as is Washington, especially if they get a better bench. 

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Great season. You've got a dangerous team even at reduced strength.

Good close out.  I wish they would have fed Korver more in the second half but will take the win for sure.  Next series will be tougher.  Keep the focus boys!!!

The Cavs depth is really impressive. James,Thompson,Love,Smith,Irving,Korver,Frye,Shumpert,Williams and Jefferson. All professionals. Picking up Korver was just sick, the whole league gotta be pissed at the Hawks. Korver like Lebron said is the consummate professional. Everyone is giving max effort on defense. They may sweep the Celtics/Washington which would really set them up well health wise for the finals. I have to give Gilbert props for following through with his promise to Lebron in giving him an excellent supporting cast. Lebron is so locked in right now like I have never seen before. He's really come into his own. F Pat Riley.

Possibly a 10 day rest could be big for the Cavs. There's more pressure on the warriors imo.
