  1. I think they will 2nd b/c right now they are 4.5 games behind the Pistons. They have 3 fairly easy games coming up and the pistons have Seattle, the Spurs and the Cavs @ Cleveland in 3 out of their next 4 games. The Cavs could be with in 1.5 games and then I think they will finish this season out strong, with the way they have played the last couple of games.

    This may be a little optimistic, but you never know.

    The Cavs catching Detroit relies on how important Larry Brown is to that team. If his coaching is what holds them together and he is out for a long time with the hip then the Cavs have a good chance to catch the Pistons. The Cavs have some hard games in the next 5 too so we should know in the next week or two if the Cavs have a chance. They look a lot better with Varejao back on the floor.

    Now that Jermaine O'Neal is out for the year the Pacers are done.
     
  3. Yeah VareJao is that man. I love the energy he brings to the floor. He is a great defensive presence in the lane. That one block he had last nite was a thing of beauty.

    Hopefully Redd will find out tonight that it will be better to play for a winner the next few years than to make Boozer money on a bad team.
     
  5. Yeah I hope so, but they always play so bad on back to back nites. They need to fix that tonite.

    This 5 game stretch for the Cavs is very important. They need to win at least 3-5 against this group of better teams.

    76ers
    at Toronto
    Detroit
    at Dal
    at Hou

    Ok, the Cavs need to get back on track if they want a chance to catch the Pistons. 5 out of 5 over this next stretch would do it. Big games at Dal, at Hou, and at Chi.
     
  8. Hopefully their new coach can teach them how to win on the road. that first win on the road could go a long way.

    It's down to must win time for the Cavs. They have to win the next 3 or they are going to fall back to the 7th or 8th playoff spot or worse. They can't drop below 6th to have a chance to win a series.
     
  10. These guys are playing like shit. They arent competitive, they stand around on both ends of the court. How many times do you see lebron go one on five while the rest of the team stands on the other side of the court. Set some off ball screens and play some damn basketball, or get out in transistion. My gosh.

    I hope they don't mind getting beat by Miami in the first round of the playoffs b/c that is where they are going to be if they even make the playoffs.
