It's likely but more like about 70%. If we win both in Brooklyn we knock the Nets out of the discussion, if we win one we knock them out of a chance at the 4 seed, but if they sweep both and we are in NJ and we've struggled on the road, who knows we could fall to the 6th seed still.Might as well start discussing Cavs-Knicks in the 1st round as there's about a 98% chance that's going to be the 4-5 matchup.
Brutal for us but great for the team.Three days off between games is brutal.
That’s what happens when the Cavs have played more games than literally every other team in the NBA (look it up!). This has been the case for the last two weeks.Three days off between games is brutal.

I hope to get to the point of feeling that confident in us beating the Knicks. Brunson and Randle worry me quite a bit. I see early foul trouble for Mobley in that matchup. Especially considering what we saw from officiating in the 76er games. The games in MSG are going to be tough, loud crowd, good team, and the refs. The national media would love a Knicks playoff series win to officially deem the Knicks as being “back”.I would say we know our whole season outcome at this point. We will win 50-52 games, play the Knicks in the first round and win a close one, then get BTFO by Milwaukee in the second round. Then we’ll spend the summer arguing about whether we looked good enough in the playoffs to be a realistic future contender, arguing about whether Levert’s new contract is an overpay, and making up impossible trades where Koby combines Osman, Lamar Stevens, and a second rounder to get an all star SF
I like it but you are thinking too small. With the 4 seed, we should beat NY, Bos, Mil, and LAL as we win the titleIf we beat BKN once - That should give us Top 5 seed.
If we beat NY next week - That should give us Top 4 seed.
With homecourt we should beat NY in the playoffs.
I.... I don't think you understand what this euphemism means. That's still an absolutely fantastic return for the 3rd pick in the draft.If Mobley's ceiling is merely "top 20 in the league," we're screwed.
