I'm listening to Fedor's latest podcast and he was talking about how Nance said that brutal 10-game gauntlet would have psychologically destroyed the Cavs in previous years but not this year. The players did not fold, they didn't point fingers, they stayed positive and mentally tough, and went on a four-game winning streak. The win over Philadelphia, with no Love, Nance, Drummond, or Delly, was "monumental" in that the young core players led the way. That win, especially after the losing streak, shows what this team will be capable of in the future.I hate to jinx us, but...
Things are looking up?
The front office is pretty excited to see what they can do in the second half with Love and Nance coming back. The success they've had with Wade starting at power forward shows how much it helps the team to have a legitimate floor spacer and defender at that position.
With regard to Love, Fedor thinks he can have a significant impact if he's willing to "excel in a specific role" that might be less than the role he's normally played.
By the way, there are only four teams in the East over .500 and one of them is just one game over .500. The Cavs are only five games out of the #4 seed in the East.
