JR is the worst defender at the 3pt line I have ever seen.

Good points but I haven't seen a player get roasted like he did on defense for a very long time. Tonight was feast on JR night for the cavs.

Who? Sure Zu & Ingram give effort but DLo, JC & Randle don't put much into it.

He was shooting 30% from 3 this month before tonight, and he made one.
I do think he could be a 33% 3pt shooter if he stayed disciplined with his mechanics (every time his lower body is calm, he doesn't have bad misses.. or it's a make)

I was at the game. The guy just got torched every possession. Doesn't close out on 3s. Gets blown by. Awful.

In fairness, I don't think Kyrie Irving is exactly the best matchup for him on the perimeter............... Like do you guys really expect him to lock up Kyrie?

I must admit though, watching this game felt like the 2011 first round series against the Hornets where somehow Bynum would end up on Chris Paul every possession

Luke was killing me tonight with the switching.

I liked how Randle moved the ball tonight. The ball often sticks to his hands but tonight he seemed to be making nice quick reads.

You would think Luke would try a different tactic. He's been quite stubborn about certain things this season. One thing is for sure The FO and Luke are all in on Randle because he doesn't seem get the same treatment Russell gets.

Me too. Set a few nice screens as well. My biggest issue was his closeouts tonight. Fell asleep on several occasions. We give up a lot of points because of that.

Professional tank move. That secured the L while Randle got some schooling.

He set a nice screen on a pull up 3 that D'Angelo made. It stuck out to me because I never see him set a good screen unless he's the one that made the pass. Seemingly every time he sets a screen on someone else's play, he slips it so he can possibly get open to get the ball again.
