He's in their most effective lineups +- with LeBron on the floor. Jefferson's good for about 1 good game every 6 or 7 games at his age.

I think he's on a restriction due to his calf injury IIRC.

Cavs are awful defensively and have been awful all year.

The majority of their team are bad defenders. Outside of LeBron does that team have anyone who is above average defensively?

JR and Shumpert.

TT is good defending the perimeter for a big.

Randle probably just broke Tristian Thompson's jaw.

I don't even think that the Cavs are playing bad defense. Lakers are just shooting the lights out.

If the cavs lose this game it is total Karma from the basketball gods for what they did last night!

Deron Williams is done as an NBA player.

Slow, can't shoot, can't defend.

LeBron is pretty bad in the regular season on that end. I don't know...we have the same starting lineup as a year before so it's not like things have changed.

I'm not sure why LeBron isn't posting up Ingram every possession.

Hate those fouls. I wish refs would let that go.

LA is hitting a contested ISO shot on almost every possession of the 4th. No ball movement whatsoever.

It's weird when you look up at this comment and notice a certain Mr. Bryant isn't around

Lakers had 2 turnovers through 3 quarters. Now 4 in the 4th.

Yeah, not worried about the Cavs defense come playoffs.

Funny how the little Cavs hating trolls who pop up every time we're losing are quiet now.

We see what you are. :lol:

Possibly.

They were certainly otherworldly (by their standards) through most of the game. Gotta regress to the mean I suppose.
