Replacing Casspi and Erden with Gee and Hollins in the starting lineup has made a huge difference. What the hell took Byron so long? But one of the keys tonight was the second unit holding their own. When I saw Samuels, Casspi and TT on the floor at the same time I thought it was blowout time, but those guys, along with Boobie and Sessions, matched the Thunder point for point.

Thank God Scott finally gave up on Erden and buried him on the bench. As much as I can't stand Samuels, I never want to see Erden again.

It was impressive watching the Thunder block all those shots, and to the Cavs credit they hung in there and gutted it out in the 4th quarter. Ok City played like crap, though. Uncle Austin was right, with a 17-1 home record they were overconfident and somewhat lethargic, except when it came to blocking shots. A lot of turnovers and they couldn't buy a 3-point shot.

I know these wins are hurting the Cavs in the long run but they sure are fun to watch. If they don't trade Sessions or Jamison it will be interesting to see how they do once Andy comes back.

Cavs with 21 offensive rebounds to 8 for Ok City, resulting in the Cavs getting 15 more shots than the Thunder. Cavs definitely wanted it more.

OKC with 13 blocked shots, several of which were on Irving layup attempts. KI adjusted and started dishing it off, passing out a career high 12 assists while scoring only 9 points. Nice job of adjusting to the length and shot blocking ability of OKC by passing more and shooting less.

Looks like they just won their 3rd straight, all against playoff teams. It's the haters and pessimists who are hiding out in the basement at the moment. Feel free to join them.

Cheer up, pup. They're playing the Raptors tomorrow. That's usually good for a loss.

Never thought I'd see a column on Casspi and Samuels coming up big in a Cavs win. Things are getting wierd around here. And what's with Jamison making eight straight free throws? Next thing you know TT might get lucky and bounce one in.

Can I mention him as long as it's in a negative context so I fall in line with the haters? I thought making a nasty comment about his free throw shooting would get me some love around here.
