Surprise Cavs fans! You get not one, but two preseason games in this latest podcap. Okay, well technically it’s a scrimmage and a preseason game, but our own Tom Pestak was there in person at this year’s Wine & Gold Scrimmage at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, and paints an awfully cool picture of that event. Then, this year’s team got ready for takeoff with a terrific first showing in Boston. They buzzed the tower with ball movement and hustle, and the rotation players built up a 19 point lead at halftime that even the G-Leaguers couldn’t blow in the fourth quarter. Kevin Love channeled his Minnesota days, Cedi Osman did a solid job of imitating his mentor, and the Cavs made Tyronn Lue happy by pushing the pace early and often against the Celtics as they flew down both ends of the court.
Nate, Tom and EG got into the air traffic control booth to radio in all the details on both of these Cavalier flybys, and deliver all the cargo on stats, player evaluations and much more. Tom even drops one last bomb on his nemesis Pablo S. Torre.
