I was trying to think of a good strong and enticing lead sentence to start this blog off, but the title says it all really. Kinda shot myself in the foot because I had a nice opening few lines in my mind of what I was going to say too, but screw it. I messed up, let’s forget about it and move on shall we? Our beloved Cavaliers have ten regular season games left, so let’s dive right in and have a little (light hearted) look at what may unfold over the upcoming three weeks…
Tonight, @ San Antonio. Motivation isn’t an issue, Coach Brown just hangs up posters all over the locker room saying “4-0”. That gets the guys going. LeBron ends the first quarter with 0 points, 8 dimes and 8 boards. He likes to get the hard part of his trip-dub out of the way early. Antawn Jamison makes McDyess look even older by running off screens for 48 minutes straight, thus resulting in McDyess needing a nap mid way through the third. JJ Hickson has yet another stellar game against Timmy D, Varejao annoys Duncan so much he puts DeJuan Blair on him. Blair grabs 20 boards in 7 minutes of play, making Dan Ferry wonder why he picked that guy, erm, oh yeah, Eyenga. Good move. Mo Williams takes advantage of Parker’s absence by going off on the Spurs for 30, Cavs take the road win.
Sunday, 28th March, Sacramento. The two most over sized, athletically gifted players in the league go at it in Lebron and Tyreke Evans. LeBron slides to the point, just to teach the rookie a lesson. What unfolds is an epic battle of one-on-one. It’s so enthralling, all other eight guys take a Gatorade break, just to watch. Obviously the king wins hands down, as do the Cavs. Z rocks the Q after settling in with his “new” team. Jamison finally looks to have gotten it and has a huge night. Shaq makes a courtside appearance, you know, to remind people of Clevaland he still exists.
Wednesday, 31st March, Milwaukee. 25 days previous, the upstart Bucks beat the LeBron-less Cavs by seven. Jamison and DeLonte combined for 57 of our 85 points. Mo Williams shot 3-17 (1-7 from beyond the arc). It was ugly. This time round, Williams reminds his former team of what they’re missing by nailing all of his 8 long-range daggers. LeBron felt bad because the people of Wisconsin missed out on his skills last time round, so his box score reads 30, 12 and 12 with 4 blocks, all on Brandon Jennings. The Bucks are thought a nasty lesson here, playoff basketball is a whole ‘nuda game to regular season basketball.
