lol the dysfunctional clippers would fold against the cavaliers in the fourth quarter of any playoff game. The jazz just aren't in Clevelands class. Golden State and the Spurs are of course threats to Cleveland and GSW would be favored.

Utah wuld never blow a 25 pt lead at home....Clips wuldnt play scared at home

I don't want to hear a single **** word about officiating for the rest of the playoffs. NBA essentially told the Cavs there's no defending during the 1st half. That was the most ridiculous garbage I've seen in many years.

Can someone answer this for me please.
The cavs were a bad defensive team throughout the regular season yet in the second half were very affect on George because they consistently swarmed and doubled teamed him and took the ball out of his hands
Why doesn't Indiana simply do the same to Lebron? Why wouldn't you swarm, blitz, and double him every time? If someone else beats you so be it

We weren't allowed to defend in 1st half. It was either a bucket or a foul. I've never seen anything like that. The NBA spotted the Pacers 26 points.

Not enough adjustments were made by Nate.. To say the least.

I can understand GS and SAS fans getting annoyed with the Cavs having the east so easy. Problem is when teams like Jazz and Blazers try to lump themselves in the category. Really think they can beat an Lbj team :noway:

It is truly irrational how much hate LeBron receives That said, I'd love for him to be a better free throw shooter, but we really never pay the ultimate penalty in games that matter.

Because the Cavs have a ridiculous collection of great shooters (certainly much better than Indy) and because LBJ is a far better passer than George. He'll kill if you're too aggressive with the help.

It's not like LeBron is surrounded by scrubs. You give those guys wide open looks and they're going to hit them.

Lebron's greatness as a passer isn't like CP3 or Nash where he runs elaborate sets or gets real fancy on the fast break - he's just stupidly good at throwing really hard, on-target passes to shooters. He throws guys open with his speed and accuracy.

Paul George isn't surrounded by scrubs either, but it works when they swarm and double him

Because he'll pass it for an open 3-pointer? The whole Cavs team is built around that scenario you have just described.

So things changed in the 2nd half or did Ind just miss shots?
