Starters:
** Brooklyn **
James Harden
Patty Mills
Kevin Durant
James Johnson
Blake Griffin

** Cavs **
Ricky Rubio
Darius Garland
Isaac Okoro
Lauri Markkannen
Jarrett Allen


Injuries:
Kyrie Irving - OUT (C'mon Man!)
Nic Claxton - OUT (illness)
Joe Harris - OUT (Ankle)
Paul Milsap - OUT (Birth of Child)
Evan Mobley - OUT (Knee)
Colin Sexton - OUT (Surgery)
Cedi Osman - QUESTIONABLE (Wrist)
Jarret Allen - PROBABLE (Illness)
Lauri Makkannen - PROBABLE (illness)

Completely different team. Fro/Markannen at C instead of Ed Davis. Cavs played us and the warriors tough and this year overall have been good. Rubip usually owns us and they beat us up a couple times last year. We need our A game tomorrow and vintage KD

Is Durant confirmed to play? I'd rather give him additional time off to be honest...

He's having a great season so far, I'm proud of Fro's work ethic and development. He's one of the few guys whose rebounding IS actually a difference maker, not just empty stat stuffing. We're gonna have to box out early and gang rebound to keep them from getting 3rd and 4th chances.

Sexton was just declared out for the season, which all due respect is a positive for Cleveland. Rubio is a big upgrade there, and he quietly torched us last week. We need one of Jevon, Bruce or DeAndre face-guarding him all game.

Hopefully, Kevin is back and ready to dominate their depleted frontcourt. Let's go rip off another W against a sub-.500 team, we can only beat the ones in the schedule in this softer area of our season slate.

Yep, and honestly we dodged a bullet because Mobley is out. He and Allen are a pretty scary front court combo

I think it's affected by the fact that Nash will rest KD as long as possible at the start of the 4th, which allows teams back into games. I don't understand why coaches, when entering the 4th with a sizeable lead, don't play their big guns & try to put it away early. Nash isn't alone in that. They're too concerned with having rested players for the stretch run that they squander opportunities for extended garbage time.

All time bad lineup on the floor

Carter
KD
Johnson
Millsap
Blake

Just terrible. Spacing, speed, and playmaking.

Claxton seriously needs to take Blake out of the rotation.

Well. I checked in second quarter and looks really sloppy with a lot of misses especially Carter. Saw one 3 pointer go in and these are wide open shots. We need another shooter cause they are basically staying tight on everyone but him. Aldridge is a great scorer but Griffin is getting burned in his place. We need Claxton back in a bad way to stop some of this interior scoring on us. Better get motivated for the second half. Nash should play Cam he’s a way better shooter and scorer than Carter.

Cam Thomas the only positive +/- Net. He probably won't play in the 2nd half.

Sick of Nash

KD has got to stop throwing dumb passes.

Not shocked that we are down to the Cavs with Jarrett back in the line up. If they had Mobley it would be a lot worse.

We are being outrebounded 37 to 21.

I really don't want to hear this stuff about how rebounding doesn't matter. It absolutely does
