Live Thread: Cavs vs Nets

Cedi’s back! This one should be fun Cavs fans. Sure, they’re still missing TT, but this Cavs squad is almost back to full health. For the Nets, Caris Levert is in his third game back after missing several months with a dislocated foot. K-Love, Cedi, and soon TT… only poor JR sitting at home would make the Cavs complete. Regardless, Cleveland should be fun to watch tonight, and should give us a glimpse of the team that they could be. For the Nets, Treveon Bell will be missing this one. Let’s see what a mostly operational Cavs team can do!

MIKEO —YOUR OPINIONS ARE USUALLY “RIGHT ON “—I AM WILLING TO MAKE A SMALL “CRAFT BEER ‘ WAGER THAT CHRISS WIL CONTINUE TO IMPRESS- ( MAYBE NOT AS WELL AS LAST NIGHT ) — AND WE SIGN HIM DURING THE SUMMER —-I REALIZE I ALWAYS GET OVERLY EXCITED BY “EARLY ” PERFORMANCES / PROBABLY WHY I WOULD BE A TERIBLE G.M. –I JUST HAVE A HUNCH WITH CHRISS –HE IS A KEEPER / LATE BLOOMER

Chriss is a lousy player. I think he has a 20% turnover rate for his career, he’s the master of the dumb foul, he’s not really a good shooter (despite his hot streak from three with the Cavs), and he doesn’t have any kind of feel for the game. I will be pretty disappointed if the Cavs sign him, unless it’s for a very small amount of money.

I’m surprised you’re so strongly against him. I agree with you that the streakiness since being traded is more fluke than anything else, but he’s still only 21 and clearly has the tools to be a good shooter if he can gain any consistency. He’s not a good defender but neither is a large chunk of the NBA. He’s got room and time to improve. I’m not saying I want the Cavs to sign him to a huge deal, but he’s worth a smaller one if he continues to develop.

Frustrating game to watch given that the officials were so atrocious, but it was still fun and got us closer to Zion. Clarkson, Russell, and Nance had amazing games. Can you imagine if those three guys were on the same team? Talk about a dynamite line-up.

Jason

Yeah. Last game would make any rational human want to sign Chriss next year.

PG: Sexton, Delly
PG/SG: Knight, Clarkson
SG/SF: Nwaba, 2019 pick (ours)
SF: Cedi
SF/PF: none (2019 pick, Hou)
PF/C: Love, LNJ, Chriss
C: TT, Henson, Zizic

Room for 1 more. I would go with a forward looking atcthe depth chart. Though another guard (PG) might work if you do not buy Delly/Clarkson/Knight longer term.

POSSIBLY “ANOTHER EXAMPLE ” FOR CAVS TO REVIEW —-WASN’T –SIAKAM / RAPTORS A GLEAGUE PLAYER NOT TOO LONG AGO—SCORED 44PTS LAST NIGHT / BEEN PLAYING GOOD BALL THE PAST 2 YRS ——–SOMETIMES YOU NEED “PATIENCE ‘ LIVE WITH THE ” GROWTH MISTAKES ” —REALIZE WHEN LEBRON WAS HERE —THAT WASN’T ALLOWED —WHY SMOKIN JOE WAS LEFT GO / TRADED

Zion league wins:
10: Knicks (18 Ls in a row)
11: Suns (14 Ls in a row + playing now)
12: Cavs
14: Bulls
———
19: Hawks

We would be in slots #3 and #21 heading into the drawing as of tonight. Gonna be hard/impossible to catch the Knicks/Suns. But Bulls are not terrible with that Porter/Markannen/Lopez frontcourt. Too bad Carter got hurt.

As much as I get excited to think of Zion on the Cavs (I renewed my season tickets hoping we get him) I don’t believe for a second that the Knicks land anywhere but #1. My feeling is the order listed above is exactly how the first 4 picks are going to fall. If the Cavs land in the top 3 I don’t think they can go wrong with any of their choices. These last few games have been fun to watch and they show they can be competitive. With the right coach and right mix of current players/next year’s draft picks I think they could be in the playoffs in 2 years. Ive been encouraged by Sexton’s play and hope he can get to averaging 5 assists or so a game. JC has to be part of this core as well as Nwaba. Depending on the money that’ll be offered I would like to see them keep Chriss. He’s only 21 and has shown some flashes. I think he just needs the right situation. There are pieces there it’s just finding the right combination and fit.

I’ll be really surprised if that’s the order of the picks. Gotta remember how even all those odds are at the top now.

Siakam with 44 as Raps win without Kawhi.

Bulls won. Minny beats Houston rocking purple unis. Maybe Wolves not dead yet?

Chriss is on,y 21. The kid looks to have a ton of upside. May be he just needed a chance to play. Cavs don’t want to win anyway, they should give him heavy minutes and develop him for next year. There’s no reason to play TT, the trade deadline is past, we know what we’re getting with him.

Jason

He is a FA next year so we will have to sign him. But he can shoot a bit. If Larry continues to improve from deep and we have 3 bigs who can spread the floor, it opens up all kinds of things.

I am a believer in needing 5 bigs (PF/C or C only). Love, LNJ, TT, Zizic, Chriss is an interesting 5. I guess Henson would make 6. I can live with that.

1) 3 spacers: Love + (maybe) LNJ/ Chriss
2) 3 excellent rebounders: Love, TT, LNJ
3) 2 bangers vs bigs: TT, Zizic
3) 3 fairly switchable: TT, LNJ, Chriss
4) 2 finishers: LNJ, Chriss (TT OK)
5) 2 passers: Love & LNJ
6) 1 post player: Love (TT better, Zz?)
7) 1 shot blocker: Henson (Chriss?)

Better group post play & shot blocking is what it lacks. But we would could always havexat least 1 (if not 2!l bigs on the court who can space the floor.
