I wonder how JR feels watching the Cavs play better after he talked all that **** and went home.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

I really like the way that TT is playing right now. He's like a running back that gets better after 15 carries.

To his credit though, he's been scouted for sure but TT looking like a "dominant" big out there.

This team didn't look like they have the worst record in past couple games esp tonight.
I am also impressed with TT of late showing more to his game than previous years.
As much as I'd like to see them get a high lottery pick I cannot see them losing enough for the top 2. Sans lucky lottery drawing.

I never thought they sucked as bad as their record and as bad as many had played early they had to get going, there was a period when they "could have" become stuck in mediocrity with never finding the TT Nance combo if the games they've been in were due to Love as the centerpiece, but since they are in a lot of games without him the continuous progression of Sexton and others esp Osman and with players like Hood and Clarkson providing 2 offensive weapons instead of one makes a big difference for oppositions to defend.
Harrison looks like a better skilled player under Drew than he ever has... I'm sure a lot of this progress will hit a wall and Hood will be streaky so even playing good this team will probably be 4-7 range at best by record after the losing put them in such a deep valley

Expected a blowout, but I think Philly was looking past the Cavs. This team plays hard and when they dont have all the stupid turnovers they can stay in most games. I dont expect Hood to be consistently good, and Clarkson was in a zone the 2nd half which really helped. Otherwise I think this game would have looked a lot like the Lakers game, close until the end.
