Bron is so good.

Was surprised how SAS got dominated last night, and how Leonard didn’t show up.

Raps remain frauds.

Wiz are good. Scariest team in East.

I don’t think Rondo injury makes a difference. Bulls still have two best players in that series. Bulls likely win in 6.

I almost did something else beside watch the second half, then I saw LeBron have a long conversation with Lance Stephenson to start the third and punctuate it with a smile. Figured I’d see if it meant what I thought it did! Cavs did something they haven’t done in a long time, they put the fear back into the East. Lue was shockingly intelligent and made some amazing unexpected moves. Does he have a switch to? Awesome game!

haha! Lue has a switch! Love it. Remember how he challenged LeBron at halftime of game seven last year? Dude has some brilliant moments.

Wow, game changer for the Bulls-Celtics series. Rondo out indefinitely with fractured thumb. Those Celts might luck into a series.

Man…Lue would totally get the game ball if Lebron were not supernova last night. I just cannot believe how many buttons he got right. Riding shump….The shumpert strip to get us to 100 was a thing of beauty…the choice to leave Channing in even though he can’t rebound that well…the choice to snag a few minutes for JR to keep them honest…and riding korver for heavy minutes…so many decisions I’d question if we lost. Korver plays suck sneaky good defense

Have now watched several times the key moment where JR lost Teague, drove to the paint & kicked to Frye for 3.

I honestly think JR was intending to shoot a rhythm 3 after a dance with Teague. You can see a look of surprise on his face when he realises Teague is lost & there’s an open lane to drive into. It takes him a moment to go for it. Hope it gives JR some confidence that his form right now is good for more than just shooting.

Man, was I watching a different game? Everyone saying Love needs to get his head in the game or some variation. The dude was getting physically mauled down there, mostly by the muggings that Seraphin was dolling out. When his outside shots stopped falling, Lue needed to put someone in that could pull Seraphin/Turner out of the paint. Frye started hitting, gotta ride the hot hand.

Yep. And short memories, dude dominated game 2. I love this team because someone puts their hand up when needed. The negative narrative will be Kev & Kyrie played badly because we won without their 2nd half presence. For mine, it’s a positive narrative – Lue saw who was hot and backed them. GOOD COACHING.

And both Kev and Ky said all the right things after the game, too. Awesome teamwork.

When Channing hit that big shot at the end, Kyrie was the first person up and out on the court cheering.

I hope Kyrie and KLove show up next game after what LeBron did yesterday. It’s just the first round of the playoffs and Lebron had to flip the switch into “finals mode” already.
Both of them have to be better.

I mean the Bucks are great defensively but they don’t have enough scoring to compete against the Cavs. And again for some reason the Raptors always choke in the first round of the playoffs. I would say Cavs in 5.

DeRozan didn’t make a single shot that wasn’t a FT… Stunning.

I read the Raps had 7 FGs IN THE FIRST HALF.

Yup the Raptors are a pretty inconsistent team. They played really bad in games 1 and 3 but played with more confidence in game #2. Let’s see what happens next game.

Nice. You answered the questions pretty darn close to how LeBron would !! Just add some fake tats to your arms.

Anyone else feeling a Bucks as Cavs 2005-06 and Cavs as Pistons vibe? Except Giannis actually has quality teammates…

Giannis doesn’t have the outside shot for that.

That second half​ performance by LeBron was incredible. To see that lineup give so much effort on defense and play with heart, it shows they are not resting on their laurels as some people thought (myself included).

This could had easily been “pack it in” game after the first half but the champs had another idea. I hope Love, JR and Ky realize that a bunch of veterans can get the job done if they give a F, therefore there is no excuse for them not to.

On another note, Bucks are freaking scary right about now.

Wish our best plus minus lineup wasn’t Lebron plus bench. But ok, LBJ, if you gotta carry this team on your shoulders like no superstar ever had to, coolio. Factoids are cool. Thank deism for not screwing with us. Defense, defense, 6 minutes with the bench unit. 45, 45, we are deeeeep.

“We need to enjoy this while it lasts.” Indeed. Next month will be 14 years since the 2003 draft lottery. Seems like yesterday. They grow up so fast.

Goodness. LeBron as usual shows that no one should ever doubt him. I wonder if he came by and read some Panic! at the Blog and thought about all the lessons everyone should have learned by now and decided to give a 24 minute refresher course.

I tested out of course.

For all the slobbering people do over Popovich and Leonard they are getting blown away tonight’s. Just shows you how tough it is to win in the playoffs and Lie and LeBron know how to get it done.
