Cavaliers v Trailblazers

Unread postby Orenthal » Sun Jan 08, 2012 9:42 pm

Feh, they're really good despite the loss to Phoenix on the second of a back-to-back. Pushing the pace, great length, points off the bench, plenty of bigs and Aldridge has a premium post game. I feel a drubbing.

Kyrie is playing like a true point guard; something the Cavs haven't had in ages. His aggressiveness is great, I love it, hard to believe he had about a 10 game college career. TT picking up his game tonight too.
EDIT: Casspi fucking blows.

Cavs were 3-for-24 on 3-pointers, and they were getting open looks all night. I estimate about 20 of the 21 misses were off the front of the rim, except for the two airballs. It's tough to hit those long jumpers on the west coast where the time change and travel takes just enough out of the legs to take a few inches off those shots.

Casspi was 0-for-5 from downtown and there's no rhythm or balance to his 3-point shots. Yeah, he blows right now. Couldn't hit water from a boat. He needs to figure it out or Scott will have to do something eventually. I could see Gee starting with Harangoty or Casspi off the bench. Eyenga could get another shot if he buckles down and does what they ask him to do in the B league.

The Blazers were very quick and active on defense forcing 24 turnovers. Samuels coughed up the ball 5 times in only 13 minutes. His ball handling and passing skills were obviously not close to good enough against a quality team like the Blazers. Hollins was a DNP for some reason.

Irving looked extremely good. If he ever develops a reliable 3-point shot - look out.

Again, at the moment......hard not to salivate on TT and Kyrie as core players with a lottery pick to join them next year.

Casspi just made a shot and there's no Cavs Jazz thread for me to comment in :gah:
