Allen looks gassed. We need Lauri, Love, and Okoro back.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

I really don't like having Garland and Sexton on the court at the same time anymore.

Mobley's help defense isn't there right now.

I'm a big Rubio fan, first time watching y'all tonight. Mobley is special. You guys sure are lucky to have him, I think with Mobley and Allen you have probably the best big combo in the league.

Also so glad as I go through your forum to see the love for Rubio, he was the reason I became a Wolves fan. You guys are gonna be good this year, so excited to see it.

Either that or quickly trade him to the Knicks, just not sure they have anything we want.

Re: GT #11, Cavaliers @ Knicks, 7 November 2021, 6:00 PM ET -- Centerpiece Of The Cavaliers Rebuild?

La Mar scored two points.
Tacko touched the ball twice.

And on top of that, it was a W.

Denver game and Knicks game were both intense AF for no reason. Really loving this team!

Nobody really understands what's going on, how the Cavs are keeping these games close, and why they're not falling apart when their opponent starts taking things seriously. We're making teams fight for their supposedly easy schedule wins.

We also caught a bit of a break catching the Knicks on the second night of a back to back after a big win over the Bucks and resting Kemba, so, by the time they figured out what was going down; they probably didn't have the legs to do anything about it.

Yeah, that's been my thought as well. Seems like we always get rolled on extensions, though. I could go something like 2 years/40 million with a partially guaranteed 3rd year. Depending on his continued health and performance that could be a lot less than he'd want.

Rubio > Sexton. And frankly, it's not even close.

It was pretty wild watching Thibs stick with the game plan of shutting down Allen and Garland as Mobley and Rubio went off. Forcing the other team to pick their poison is a luxury the Cavs haven't had in a long, long time.

Actually this was the first night of the back-2-back with them playing Philly tonight. They rested Kemba to have him for the 76ers...

Hah, I guess the Knicks announcers had me confused ... it didn't occur to me they'd be resting players on the first game of a B2B. You secure the win then worry what comes next.

Well the Knicks were probably thinking "It's just the Cavs and they are down 3 key rotation players and sure they had a day or rest, but they did just play big minutes in a tough game against Toronto. Let's take the easy win and look to have our best for Philly the next night." Although it backfired vs the Cavs it might actually get them at least 1 win since Embiid is out with Covid.
