    That too. I'm tired of us fading a certain way while passing. Come to a jump stop or a solid one-two and find the passing window around the defender. I'm tired of fadeaway-passes that are we try to throw above the defender. They're predictable because, if we're fading a certain way, we have to get rid of the ball or else it'll be a travel. It's the same as a jump pass.

    We're pretty clutch too. Lillard Time is a real thing.

    But there's more to basketball than that.

    I agree that we should have gone to Nurk more, much more. lol
    Also, Dame wasn't able for the most part to get to the hoop like he has been, Davis was quick and knew he wouldn't dish off. I still think the best strategy is to go directly at Davis by post up with our forward or drive and dish.

    as the commentators said at the end of the first half - it was the worst shooting half in history for the DL/CJM combo.

    Worst. In. History.

    for some ungodly reason/coincidence the bench was able to hit some shots in the quicksand of the struggle and kept us in it. If we're even approaching thinking that the bench will step up like that each time cj/dame go missing i think we're going to be pretty disappoint.

    to compete with top class teams we need at least ONE of those 2 to show up and hit some shot, ideally both, but we're really in the shit 99/100 if neither are popping.

    i was pretty amazed it was that close in the end, but it was down to an exceptional effort from the bench and ET (argh?!) - i dont think my soul can take that kind of pressure on the regular.

    there were also some mind numbing plays right at the end, meyers losing control, and inbounding for a 2pt attempt, if i didnt have semi-new monitors i'd be scared for their life having to go thru that again.....

    was just demotivating as it was another game on a big stage where people went missing when we needed them most, and poor choices were the flava of the day, right up to the end.

    game 2 needs a stamp from a few of our guys - they need to put it DOWN next time.

    and nurk, dunk a fuckin ball when you're that close. jesus.

    Ed, you were amazing, but ffs hit them free throws plz.

    Evan Turner takes a lot of shit in here but I, for one, like his game. I think he posts up as good as anyone I've seen this season.

    And now, Collins is starting to post up.

    I'm learning to love the post up when we have a height advantage.

    A. I didn’t read the full thread, obviously. I’ve never let that stop me from making a smartass post.

    B. Just messing with you.

    yeah ET surely does, and I've given him serves when he has deserved it but he deserves praise for being a key piece in keeping us in the ballgame last night - although im not super sure how often we'd see that phenomenon repeated

    I think if there is one specific thing that has irritated me this season it would be Nurk not finishing strong. Dunk the ball. You’re massive.

    I got really drunk and passed out..then had bad dreams about how we were the only team with homecourt to lose. I felt a little better when the Cavs got blown out today but I'm still gonna be depressed til tipoff of Game 2

    It was just one game... no need to overreact. Just going by the eyeball test that was the worst I've ever seen dame and cj play together. That's not happening twice. The series has just begun... If new Orleans does get 4 wins off us, then good on them. But they have to get 4 wins off us, and I don't see that happening.

    Didn't sleep and horribly depressed. Couldn't even view board until today. But fuck, the Cavs looked worse.

    I've been saving them for posterity. I think it's time to break out the old videos as both of us aren't all that young anymore. It would remind me of what was good in life at one time.
