Live Thread: Cavs vs. Celtics (#StayWokeTuesday)

It’s Tuesday again… time to #StayWoke and hope that second day of the week luck kicks in once more for the Cavs as they host the Boston Celtics tonight at the Q. The one guy who won’t #StayWoke though, is the same dude who popularized the saying a while back, Kyrie Irving. It’s curious that Uncle Drew chose not to make this trip to Cleveland, the second avoidance of his former team this year (he also skipped the January 23rd game in Boston).

Although, maybe in the wake of all the nonsense surrounding Irving lately (some self-inflicted, some circumstantial), the woke-est thing he could do is not risk engaging the local media and saying something stupid. With everything from his make-up call to LeBron, to his apparent flip-flopping on his decision about whether or not to re-sign with Boston this summer, to being near the center of the Anthony Davis vortex… maybe Kyrie is #StayingWoke by #StayingHome.

Irving’s absence, and the fact that it’s Tuesday are not the only newsworthy things for the Cavs in this game, however. Since we last saw them on Saturday, they’ve parted ways with Rodney Hood, sending him to Portland for a couple of distant second round picks, little known Baldwin brother Wade, and Nik “Sauce Castillo” Stauskas (rhymes with Ilgauskas). We may see them play, if only because Cedi Osman joins the ranks of the injured (ankle) in addition to Hood being gone.

Prediction: In true exaggerated Tuesday form, I’ll say the Celtics #StayWoke and smoke the Cavs 140-85.

#StayWoke and catch all the flat-planet action starting at 7pm EST on Fox Sports Ohio… and, as always chime in here with any non-sensical opinions about the Cavs, the impending trade deadline, how much you don’t think all that highly of the 2016 title, bizarre science theories, how you “don’t owe anyone sh*t” and what your plans are for the summer…

GO CAVS!

Really think it’s time for Lebron to use his leverage and force Magic to trade for JR…

I’m not even sold on AD…I think the Lakers could get off a lot cheaper with a guy almost as good in Omer Asik…

In any other era he would be a top 3. This era he is limited with how the game is officiated/rules as are all non-wings/pgs.

LBJ is going to tell Magic offer 6 future first rounders, Kuzma, Ingram, Hart, KCP and to take Hills contract pretty soon. I’m loving it.

If Bron refuses to defend for the rest of February, they do not make the POs.

2.5 back now. 2 in loss column.

AGREE WITH JASON/ BUCK– ( AND I AM SURE MANY OTHERS )—IF WE DON’T GET OFFERED A 1ST / AND PLAYER—–THEN ” NO DEAL ” ———————-LIFE IS GOOD IN LA-.LA LAND—- AND YES THEY SELL ICE WATER IN HELL ——JUST HOPE THE PELS HOLD FIRM —NO TRADE —-WANT TO SEE HOW THE REST OF THE SEASON PLAYS OUT FOR THE LAKERS

Good effort by the Cavs. So e sloppiness with turnovers and miscues on d, but overall good effort. One of Clarkson’s worst games. Took a lot of bad and rushed js.

Nice effort from the Cavs, especially considering Cedi was out. LNJ finding his rhythm again and Nwaba brings great energy.

Again, for a decent price, I would love to keep Burks. He is a battler.

If he goes, we better get a first out of it. If we eat a contract, perhaps a player too.

Lakers need to have a Blatt moment. I think only former Laker Ty Lue can save the season.

Good fight. Good 3 quarters from Sexton (missed his last 6). Good night from Burkes, if that is his last game here, itcwasxa good one.

If Burkes gets traded, it helps the tank.

SO DOES BURKS PERFORMANCE UP THE CHANCE FOR HIM TO BE TRADED OR POSIBBLY STAY ?————-WILL BE INTERESTING TO HEAR / SEE THE LAKERS REACTION AFTER TONIGHT’S GAME—LEBRON KNOWS THE DEADLINE IS NEAR///TRYING TO FORCE LAKERS INTO A TRADE THAT WILL EVENTUALLY PUT LAKERS SAME PLACE WHERE CAVS ARE PRESENTLY AT

The thing about being so thin is that if someone is off, there is no alternative.

JC is off. We have no one else.

Though I might go: Delly, Nwaba, Burks, LNJ, Zizic. Too late now.
