At least we can say the Cavs are now part of an NBA Finals record (fewest combined points in a quarter)!


Biggest mismatch was the record I had in mind.

In a few weeks though, no matter win or lose, I will be happy we got here.

They deserve to lose . . . simply painful. Can we forfeit game 4 and save further humiliation?

Three things the Cavs should know right now:

1) They are shooting 1-13 from downtown and are only down 8
2) They are shooting 1-13 from downtown and are only down 8
3) They are shooting 1-13 from downtown and are only down 8

Anyone else see the picture?

No attack mentality on the break..our role players spot ups are rushing their shots.

Doesn't help that all of them cept for Sasha have one foot in the coffin.

If we just shot a few % points better from 3 it would be tied or a lead for us.

OK time for an old fashioned two point bucket.

73-63 might be the final score.

THERE YOU GO.

Take it inside.

Every time.

No more 3's, even if you are WIDE OPEN. You pound the ball inside every time. Make cuts. Post up Bron. Do that.

No more 3's unless it's desperation time.

I had to check to see who the Cav was that made the only 3-pointer.

Congratulations Damon Jones, for going 1-2 so far from downtown.

Um we're down 0-2 with less then 8 minutes left in the 4th of game 3.

I mean like down 10 with under a minute left in the game, where we have no chance unless we take and make 3's. Right now we can get in it without shooting from outside.

I'm hoping we all remembered that before this series started. Cleveland played way over their talent level in the Detroit series, but SA is at a whole different level than the Pistons. I think the Pistons might have given the Spurs a better series than we've seen so far, but they couldn't overcome LBJ and Boobie when it counted.

No matter what happens, I'm proud of the Cavs for making it to the NBA Finals and putting Cleveland back on the sports map for the first time in 10 years.

Why would a 6'9" PF bring the ball to his knees?

Then make a stupid drunken board crashing foul on a rebound attempt.

Unreal how bad our guys hands are near the basket.

My God, if anything goes for us tonight...and I mean anything, we're up 20.

We've had so many easy looks, open jumpers, and missed layups.

And they have hit everything from 3.

If we lose this one, it's over. We may get game 4, but this is our chance. This game is winnable. This game is within our grasp. Gotta take it.

Couldn't say it better myself. Four point game, it's completely anyone's game.

Who wants it more, the Spurs or LeBron? Not fair to the kid, but that's what it comes down to.
