Do the Cavs maybe have a chance to win this game?

Can we score 100 points?

Sexton and Dotson are questionable but I expect Collin will play and Dotson will not; but even so, he may be limited by the injury.

Maybe Andre gets Memphis in foul trouble early (rather than visa-versa) and Isaac has a break out game?

It would be nice to get this win just to help keep the team afloat until we get some players back and/or Altman can find us a PG.

I hear Brandon Knight isn't busy ... not a defender like Exum, but can still shoot.

I mean the entire guard core is either at half speed tonight or out. Cedi can handle running some plays but I dont expect them to be able to stay in the game if they dont make some shots unlike past 2. I would just rest mostly everyone and start Okoro,Stevens Wade, Bolden & Maker w/ Dotson playing ltd minutes if able at all and maybe with Sexton and LNJ playing in the 4th only if they are in the game through defense.

When Drummond tries to go basket to basket, he reminds me of LeBron. But like the future slightly out of shape 55 year old LeBron who will be scrimmaging with his grandkids in a gym somewhere.

Also I wish we could make this Fratello for Carr trade permanent. I know it's heresy, but Carr is garbage

I've never seen somebody as big and strong as Drummond play so soft. He gets blocked multiple times at the rim per game by guys shorter and constantly gets pushed around inside.

****As I'm writing this he finally just got fed up and slammed one in. Bout timeeeeee

Okoro is already well beyond his years.

Lol it's not a pretty sight. Man he used to thought of as an athletic freak, hard to imagine looking at him now as he is for sure lugging around a spare tire but he was in a dunk contest less than 4 years ago.

I agree although I had been fine with him in the past, just think after listening for 20 years his schtick is getting annoying now.

Lol

I remember when Haywood played for us at the end of his career. He looked like Frank the Tank with the dart still in his neck.

It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

I supported having Austin back during this messed up season over breaking in a new color man, but yeah, I'd take Fratello ANY day he's available to work for us. But Mike is used to working in the New York and National markets and being able to say what he sees, so it really comes down to Dan Gilbert and FSOH's wallet.

As I understand it, he still lives in the Cleveland area which is why he pops up occasionally on FSOH.

Brad Daugherty is another Cavs legend, and did fine, but didn't particularly impress me as an analyst.

Can't wait until he figures out how to impose his will on a full game. We may need more challenge flags for that, though. Hopefully the refs get used to seeing him doing these kinds of things like that chase down block and fast.

Good game guys. Okoro just looks like a winning basketball player. I loved him before the draft and think he'll be a good one for you as your core continues to develop.

Thanks. Unfortunately between the injuries, back to backs, and covid, it looks like we're going to see a lot more of these battles of broken rosters. Fratello was very complimentary of your rooks on the Cavs broadcast.
