Woe is he that has to recap that beat down at the hands of the Anthony Davis-less Pelicans. ‘He’ is Ben Werth and will provide an insightful look at what went wrong when the sun checks in on Europe.
Until then, below is a radio interview from the past – well, just about 30 hours ago, when the Cavs were riding an 8-game winning streak. Now they’ve lost two straight. Quite the turnaround. But let’s soften the blow with the bubble wrap of perspective: the Japanese Navy had a 78-year run of dominance leading up to the Battle of Midway, including the devastation at Pearl Harbor, the anniversary of which we just remembered last week. And in less than 10 minutes (nary a quarter of an NBA game) three of the four aircraft carriers in the Japanese strike force were engulfed in flames and destroyed. (the fourth followed later that evening). The Japanese Navy never conducted a successful offensive again. THAT my friends, is an abrupt end to a winning streak. Hastag HistoryLesson. The Cavs will get back to their winning ways in due time. They’ve been a bit lifeless and have gotten into some bad habits. The good news is that Kyrie, Love, LeBron, and most of the rotation is healthy.
I broke it down (the winning streak) with @ESPNMark.
Give it a listen!
