Live Thread: Bulls vs Cavs

Happy Christmas Eve Eve, Cavs fans. If you watched the Browns dismantle the Bengals, you’re probably feeling pretty good, and now you get a heaping helping of Cavalier basketball. For the Cavs, Rodney Hood is out with a sore achilles while David Nwaba is questionable.

For the Bulls, Bobby Portis, Zach Lavine, while there’s no word on Jabari Parker who’s missed the last four games with illness and being crapy.

The loser of this game will have the worst record in the league, and be in the lead for the Zion Williamson tank battle. Truth be told, these young Cavs could use a win, and with Lauri Markennan back and Lavine and Parker sitting, this team is no pushover. Let’s hope Sexton, Cedi, and Co. can take a step forward and build some confidence.

AGREE WITH YOU ON BOTH SEXTON / ZION ———REALLY THINK DREW / AS COACH HAS TO COACH HIM WHAT HE WANTS TO SEE / EXPECTATIONS ON THE FLOOR / CORRECT HIS MISTAKES NOW !!—BEFORE THEY BECOME A NEGATIVE HABIT——-STILL THINK—OF COURSE –DIFFICULT TO DO NOW WITH ALL THE INJURIES —SIT THE YOUNG BULL FOR A GAME OR 2 —PHYSICAL / MENTAL / EMOTIONAL REST———I LIKE ZION —NOT SURE IF HE IS THE BEST NBA PROSPECT

Just to pump the brakes on the Zion train, even with the #1 spot heading in, our chances at Zion are 14% and our chances at a top 4 spot are 52%.

If you run 10 sims at Tankathon, our most common landing spot, by far, is 5th.

For 2+ quarters we were quite good, really. Nance, Cedi, Burks, Clarkson, Nwaba & Delly had good halves. Channing hit a 3.

Sexton was awful. You cannot bench him completely given how few healthy players we have. I expect mistakes. But I also expect some sort of learning curve.

Learn to drive & dish. Use the backboard. Get us into our offense quicker. Do not settle for long twos with a big on you. Stop aimless dribbling. Learn to change speeds and/or keep the dribble alive on drives.

Other than one decent pass to Nance and a steal where he dove in to help in the post, I cannot remember one positive play.

Our D continues to be abyssmal.

We went a whole quarter without an assist.

7 thru 3 quarters.

In good news, Detroit & NO lost again tonight. Desperation level has to be rising in both places. And Sac won again.

Nance & Cedi with nice games. Burks solid.

Oof, just a listless second half. That’s probably the worst loss of the year. Sexton has hit a bit of a wall.

We won the tank battle.

Time for Lingabarfi to get fired. Dead last in defense.

Chicago is much better now that Markannen & Dunn are healthy & Lavine & Parker are not playing.

Our best 5 out there. Delly, JC, Nwaba, Cedi, Nance. And in comes Zizic.

I am souring on Sexton. His instincts are just so bad. He can’t even blow by a big to create a shot.

Jason

Burks (8/5/2) and Nwaba with solid halves as well.

Markannen is so good.

I just love it when Sexton dribbles aimlessly for 20 seconds & then passes to someone 25 feet from the hoop.

And Burks one ups him with a poor pass.

Jason

LNJ with a hook!

Cedi nails a 3! And Longabarfi yells at him.

Cavs showing they have no clue how to throw a post entry pass.
