Man, that's a bad shot. You can't let CJ Miles take a step back contested mid range jumper.

if I recall, didn't CJ Miles miss a shot at the horn in that 2 OT game they played a couple weeks ago?

That play at the end made me appreciate Kobe. I remember he said there's a difference of opinion between him and the coaches on that type of play. Do you wait for the double team to come, to force you to give up the ball? Or, regardless of the clock, do you go because you're the best option? Kobe would argue to go regardless of clock. PG13 played the coaches way and never got the ball back.

Yeah, I don't see it being a problem in the East against Washington/Boston/Toronto, but against a team like Golden State/San Antonio, with more talent, their defense is going to be a problem

yeah, it used to come up, especially when Pau was in his prime and you also had Odom out there. Even if Kobe was double or triple teamed, it was better if he tried to force a shot because his shots weren't rough rebounds - like a Kwame Brown riccochet off the board. Kobe's "bad" shots still would bounce around and give an opportunity for a rebound by Pau or Odom.

Yeah pg13 wasted the clock and picked up his dribble and passed to a player not open and the player had to make a bailout shot to win.

A really bad way to end the game

I think Toronto and Boston can give the Cavs a hard time. Their defense is really bad

I think those top East teams (mostly raptors/wiz) will give them a run for their money this year

I think the Raps have the best shot of challenging Cleveland due to their size, along with elite shot makers in Lowry/DeRozan, but we'll see

CLE definitely looks vulnerable. Love still doesn't look like he fits and dare I say Lebron appears to be aging and in a slight decline as if he's human or something. Guy is such a beast. I think Bos or Toronto might be able to win a couple of games against Cleveland, but no way these Cavs beat Golden State.

Man PG13 should have taken the last shot. In no universe should CJ Miles be taking a game winning shot in the playoffs. Mcmillan is a horrible coach if thats the best play they can come up with. They should have known Paul was going to be double teamed. PG13 is such a beast in the playoffs. He was coasting in the regular season but the guy always comes and shows up big in the playoffs.

This.

None of these EC teams are going to give the Cavs a series. Just like last year their first round opponent (last year it was the Pistons) will probably be their toughest matchup.

I'm a Pacers fan and even I think its moronic anyone thought we were going to win this game (or the series)

The Cavs aren't impressive but the Pacers aren't good enough to take advantage of it for 4 games.

PG13 will bolt after next season and honestly I don't blame him. Playoff PG13 shouldn't be wasted on such a mediocre team.
