I'm a mess...

I'm shaking, I'm mad, I'm trying to be reasonable, I keep refreshing the thread like something is gonna fucking change about the game.

I'm gonna go jump off a cliff.

F*ck that game made me sick. Especially b/c LeBron's effort went to waste and I had to look at Kenny "Kobe" Smith and Charles "Celtics" Barkley after the game. Wanted to do a Star Trek teleport and whip some TNT ass after that junk.

Cavs win that game, LeBron is a lot closer to his second MVP and the Cavs a closer to home court through the Finals.

Z was also horrible out there, 0-4 1ft... Shaq couldn't get it going either after a quick start with the Mo dishes... He really should start oing glass more. Also AV got called for travel on his Pseudo Hakeem Post Move, which wasn't called a travel the other day and right fully so because he's pivoting after stopping a dribble which if I remember correctly is allowed unless someone is trying to keep a game close....
I don't think it's fair to criticize Shaq there. He was playing great until the refs shut him down. They don't even let him play the game anymore. Shaq is the only player that really got hosed there, everyone else sucked on their own accord (with the exception of Jawad and 4th quarter LBJ/Andy).

Im glad we lost. On a side note, that Songalia kid is one of my new favorite players, and I also blame the loss on my eating crow post. lol I knew it was a bad idea to say all that.

Anyways I actually wasnt pissed at all when he made that 3. I knew it was money as soon as he shot it, we deserved to lose anyway.

Z tonight: 1 points, 3 boards, 7' 3" giant. Guy is a joke. And yet no one wants him traded. ROFL!

Oh I wasn't critizicing his complete game, just the 2 or three bunnies he missed, in fact his presence in the paint kept their points there low.

Re: Game 41 | Turnovers @ Utah | January 14, 2010 | 10:30 EST

A couple of things about the end of the game, one of them I know no one will agree with me about, but I have a quote to prove I didn't just make it up now.

First of all, why was LeBron taking out the ball? As I'm sure others have mentioned, LeBron was shooting pretty well from the line down the stretch.

Second, why did it take until 4:30 left in the game for MB to realize that we could have ONE big in the game along with LeBron and still be bigger/taller than Utah? We couldn't stop them to save our lives with two bigs in the game. We destroyed them with one big in the game.

Third, why the FUCK did we foul them so many times? Basically gave them free points. And then we miss our FTs. Fuck you Z and Parker.

Last, I give you my quote:

We might as well foul these fucks now. They don't have Boozer or Williams so they have to go for three, no way they hang with us for 5 minutes in OT without either of their two best players.
Now, you do run the risk of them shooting a three, but give them a second, and if they don't appear to be shooting, foul them. Seriously, the only way they win the game is if they make the first FT, miss the second, and then tip in the miss. And I would hope that we would put Z and Shaq in for the rebound so that they would have no chance at getting it.

Also, who the fuck did they have left in the game? Okur I guess would be their go-to option? No Boozer, no Deron, no AK47. They had literally no one to create their own shot. We go to OT, there's no way they can stay with us for 5 minutes unless we continue to make dumbass plays (fouls) on defense.

We deserved to lose that game. Our offense was flat out pathetic.... too many jumpers and no movement on offense. Utah barely had to work on the defensive end of the floor in the second half. I feel like Shaq and Z do more harm then good when we play these teams with these unconventional bigs like Okur.

I honestly think if we can cut back on the turnovers, we are the best team in the league. Pretty much every one of our losses this year has been because of turnovers. We had how many tonight? 25 or something? That is terrible. If you think about it, our team really doesn't have a huge weakness that the other team can expose. We are one of the best, if not the best team on defense. Our offense isn't always there 100% of the time, but we still put up a lot of points despite the offensive slumps we have. Our weakness is stupidity. It isn't a lack of talent, we have talent on both ends, but we make too many stupid mistakes and commit too many stupid turnovers. And I can't believe we haven't fixed this problem yet, and if it isn't fixed before the playoffs, I'm not getting my hopes up on anything past the second round.

Re: Game 41 | Turnovers @ Utah | January 14, 2010 | 10:30 EST

Shit, I am really pissed that this site's inability to handle so many users at one time forced me to go read what other fans thought on CavFagnatic.

This game truly hurt. What a piss poor game by both teams until they realized it was an actual game. I truly thought we won when LBJ went off in the 4th, I was pounding my chest, screaming on the inside (my mom was asleep) and making my dog look at me like I am a complete retard. Then, in an instance, gone. Parker choked, Z choked. If they would have just fouled, that kid probably wouldn't have sent it into OT and if he did so what, they had no Boozer, attack the paint.

Screw this shit, this game was nothing but heartache...sure in the grand scheme of things, this rookie will always have this moment, but in 2 weeks time he is going to be back in the D League, never to be heard from again. Sadly, that is true.

I blame no one but the piss poor play of our team for this loss. Way to fuck up a golden moment to get even more distance from you and the Celtics. Sure, we still have the 1 seed because of the old, injured Celtics. But this freaking stings.

No one even tried to defend in the paint until it mattered, it was clear LBJ was having an off night and no one stepped up. Where the fuck was Mo? Paging Mo...wake the fuck up, you are too valuable to this team.

What the fuck was up with all the fouls? That second half was choppy as hell, no one could get into a groove until that epic fail by the Cavs.

I must say fuck the turnovers and fuck this team's mindset during this game. You didn't have to be in ft mode to win the game if you limited the fucking turnovers. You let a rookie beat you because you succumbed to the crowd....and boo to you Jazz fans, cheering like school girls when LBJ came up limping. This is a fucking sport, its entertainment....most classy sports fans don't wish injury to anyone.


You know what's even sadder? I am so ADHD for basketball, I am going to look for an upload of this game with the missing 2 minutes TNT decided to not show...and on top of that, rewatch the entire game because my DVR fucked up. Here's a story, my mom was watching tv and on ocassion, it would pixelate or freeze....I thought about restarting the DVR, but I put it on TNT for the first game and it never did it. So I thought maybe just that channel, I even tried to call the cable company but I can't deal with automated things. Everything was good until the fucking third when, like a computer stream. It would freeze, but it really didn't take away from the fucking fail of a game. That and it pixelated for a milisecond every 5 minutes or so. Nothing drastic, nothing missed, game wise. But I am such a fucking homer, I got to rewatch this fucking shit.

Good god, I am pissed and this is a rant with too many fucks in it. Oh well fuck it.....

By the way, what's up with like NBA tv following that rookie? I bet if he didn't make that shot, TNT would have never shown that footage.
