Collin is out for this game, apparently he started showing signs of a concussion at some point after the last game ... or <insert conspiracy theory here>.

The last part is directed at me probably right? I guess you are one of those people that just believes everything they are told by their employer too right lol
Of course he has a concussion because they say so...the reality is he would not sit out if he didnt

Did Okoro get tossed.

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

I'll say this, the rookie label is off Okoro with NBA crews and he's giving opposing players fits.

Bickerstaff has figured out that taking the challenge is just as important as winning it.

Not to go all Stillwater, but are people watching how the last 4 minutes have been officiated?

Lol like the officiating had anything to do with DG choking ar the end of the game. Allen and Okoro played a role in it too down the stretch.
He has become a really effective guard compared to his rookie season but he obviously still cant finish through contact enough to draw fouls in those moments and cannot be a gamer as is.
I want to believe in him but his ceiling is capped too low to start on a contender regardless of who is in the court with him.

It's the little things ... the Cavs coming close to winning this game missing a 25ppg scorer and still breaking 100, Jarrett Allen looking like himself, Cedi showing up, Garland continuing to string together a series of impressive games even if he failed to close it.

Garland got up 8 3pters in this game, which is close to what the Cavs want from him; but I thought he still played mostly his usual game looking to get teammates involved, not forcing many shots, and not dominating the ball.

If Kevin is starting to find range on his 3pters again, we need to start running more plays to get him shots. Spamming the high pick & roll was effective, but we need to work harder to get our best shooters open looks (which includes Garland).

All part of that transition from combo to point guard.

Nah, you're not the only person who loves a good tanking related conspiracy theory.

From the play by play. The Cavs were up by seven points and were whistled for six defensive fouls in three and half minutes? If wasn't every possession it was six out of seven or eight. When it was over, it was a one point game. Also, Hartenstein was ejected, for as far as I can tell, bumping heads with Bradley Beal when they both dove for a lose ball.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

I don't think Hartenstein was ejected, but if you've been wanting to see a Cavalier throwing his weight around, IH was that guy in this game nearly taking out Beal and Russ.

He was taken to the locker room and while being physically restrained by the staff at the time.

Interesting. I didn't catch that (I was watching the Wizards feed and tend to FF'd timeouts and reviews), but pay attention when they eventually decide the outcome ... and didn't hear any flagrant calls or ejections, and see no mention on the web.
