Overview: Drew Gooden got a triple-double, and the Cavs are not going to win 20 games this season.
Freaking Drew Gooden bullets:
It’s been a season full of comic misery, but Drew Gooden recording a triple-double against this team may be single most bizarre and ridiculous indication that this team is not good and does not play defense. The Bucks scored 108 points on 50%/40% shooting and 31-10 AST/TO ratio, and their coach hates scoring.
The Cavs actually regressed to their early-season bad habits on defense — they didn’t defend the three-point line, and they were absolutely torched by a good wing scorer. Also, they came out flat and had to try and play catch-up, which is something they have done less frequently in the last part of the regular season.
Hickson had something of a regression game, but he did get his double-double, and you have to remember that Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is an absolute monster on defense.
Poor defense, slow start, no chance. In case you’re wondering, one other player has recorded a triple-double with at least 13 rebounds and assists while fouling out since the 1985-86 season. Try and guess who it was, then click the link for the answer.
Two games left to go.
