Cavs-Magic - Game 4

Discussion in 'Professional Basketball' started by BB73, May 25, 2009.

  1. I don't know about that. After watching their recent play, I kind of doubt the Cavs' ability to beat the Lakers or even the Nuggets in a 7 game series.

    I agree. The missed shots aren;t a result of great defense. An open shot is an open shot is an open shot.

    Delonte stepped up tonight, Mo Williams field goal percentage continues to suck, and Z isn't the Z from the regular season. And WTF happened to our great bench?

    Did we not have the best bench for a mjority of the regular season?

    Just frustrating.

    I hate being down 3-1, but it's not over yet guys. I'm encouraged by the fact that we could/should have had this game except for some inexplicable Rafer Alston third period scoring. I'm encouraged by the fact that its clear the two regular season blowout wins by Orlando were a fluke. I'm encouraged by the fact that we haven't played our best basketball yet and they have.

    We need a little home cooking and then come back to the home of Mickey Mouse and steal Game 6.

    Does anyone here think we would lose Game 7 at home????
     
  4. Your optimism is contagious. I think I may be coming around a bit. :biggrin:

    Lebron looks like the only dude on that team that's worth a shit. Well, ok he looks like solid gold shit. But, seriously, why are the Cavs so bad at shooting suddenly? Orlando takes 3's when they want and it makes me sick. If they don't get this fixed, keyboard cat will play them off on Thursday. :(

    I'm not encouraged by several things.....i don't feel like going through the whole list. Sometimes, its just not meant to be though. Rashard Lewis going clutch, Rafer Alston going off, Dwight Howard making his free-throws, Hedo Turkaglu and his 24/7 bedhead making big shots....

    I'm not feeling any optimism whatsoever....

    Well, 8 teams have come back from a 3-1 deficit, somehow Cavs make it 9. I don't know how but, Mo has to get his shit together and I think it can be done. It wouldn't hurt if Superman goes ape shit and gets another T.

    I believe. I sound *Mentally challenged* but I believe.

    I'm so tired of these fuckheads from Central Florida stealing our shit. And I live in central Florida!

    Some sobering facts. I don't think that the Magic played their best basketball yet. Far from it. Apart from 4th quarters, Turkoglu and Lewis have not been good. They've just been able to hang around until those guys get going. Their shooting percentage, free throws, and Hedo's shooting percentage would normally indicate the Cavs being up 3-1 as opposed to the opposite.

    Yes, there are matchup problems abundant when on defense. But there is no excuse as to why we execute so poorly on offense. If the game has less than 2 minutes left, no one will make an important field goal other than Lebron. Mo, stop trying to blast Anthony Johnson's minutes and guard Skip to my Lou.

    One thing I'm noticing is that as the Magic bring the ball up court, our matchups are set how we want them. Then they run screen roll again and again until they have them to their liking. That's just smart play. Right now I can't see anything but negatives. Give me some time and I might be back to normality.

    Give the Magic credit... guys are stepping up everywhere on that team. Rafer had a big game last night, Howard and Rashard have been great, Johnson has knocked down open shots, Gortat has given them good minutes, and Pietrus has done a good job. No one on the Cavs except Lebron and Delonte last night has stepped up. I'm not too optimistic about this series, I think it ends when we go back to Orlando.

    I have to differ on you thinking they haven't played at their best because they just set their team record for most three pointers made in a playoff game and they are a three point shooting team.

    Well that didn't work....oh well I'm not really a Cavs fan though.

    That said, the Cavs were beaten by a team that plays fast. Cleveland hasn't adjusted to it yet.
