It’s been an up and down season for Cavs fans, but it’s always exciting to see progress from young players… even in a losing effort. Down a couple more hombres, with Rodney Hood gone in a trade to Portland and Cedi Osman out with an ankle sprain, the Cavaliers rode their Young Bull for the first three quarters of their contest against the Boston Celtics. For a change, Collin Sexton looked less like a mechanical bull, and more like a fast and dangerous real life one right out of the chute. The rookie changed speeds and got to the rack with gusto, scoring 27 points (two off his career high). He faded in the fourth, going 0-6 after an 11-18 showing beforehand, but the Cavs almost stole it anyway behind The Bandit (Alec Burks) possible farewell performance for the wine & gold.
Nate and EG hung on well past their initial 8 seconds, spending 90 minutes breaking down this one, and then riding on to a variety of other topics. They cover the Lakers getting an epic goring from the Pacers, the absolute rope-a-dope job the Pelicans are doing on Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka, and get all tangled up in guessing how the impending trade deadline will go down. We’re particularly bullish about bringing a certain patron of weirdos back to the Land.
