No "Big Fella"? MORE HOLLINS YES!

Let's see how the boys respond to the opening night humiliation at the hands of the "long" Raptors. A team that lost 3 straight, against much better competition, after playing the Cavaliers. The Raptors are coming off of beating the HORRIBLY COACHED :thumb up: Knicks.

The Cavs missed about a dozen shots right at the hoop in that first quarter.

The Raptors length bothers us. Our floor spacing looked awful in the second part of that quarter.

This is back to reality. Pounding my fingers with a hammer would be less painful then watching this execution.

DRUMMOND!

Cavs lose the second game of a back-to-back on the road. It happens. It happens a lot. Not that big a deal.

The rookies got introduced to their first NBA back-to-back. KI and TT combined to go 3-of-18 from the field. There will be a lot of back-to-backs in this compressed season so they'll have to learn to deal with it more effectively.

A couple of positive things came out of it. The Cavs hit 22-of-26 free throws, or 85%, which is a dramatic improvement over the 65% they put up in the first five games.

Casspi actually looked like a professional basketball player with 10 points, 5 boards, 2 assists and only one turnover in 24 minutes. Maybe he'll settle down and turn into a decent contributor.

Cavs had no answer for Bargnani and Calderon. Barg put up 31 points and a +22. When the Cavs tried to make a 4th quarter run he nailed four long range shots to put the game away. Must be nice to have a seven-footer with that kind of range.
