Honestly, I don't see why "we shouldn't worry". We have been outplayed all series. We have no answers for Dwight Howard. You guard him one on one, he dunks on you, you double team him and he drains his frows.

We can't guard the outside shot worth a damn, and if LeBron is the only guy producing large numbers then we are doomed. The reason why we had such a successful season wasn't because LeBron was carrying us, it was because we were playing team ball. Right now we are seeing the same thing we have seen the past 6 years, which is depending on LeBron James to carry us to a victory.

Fo' real? Fo' real, real, real, real? What is he saying?
Here are some direct quotes...

"When you take one guy and put him on the line 24 times, it's hard to say your defense is great."

"We shot a ton of FTs too, but they were trying to put Dwight on the FT line, that was planned, they just hammered him every time he got it, so those 19 FTs, they wanted those to happen, we didn't want any of his 24 to happen, none, we weren't trying to foul him, they were trying to foul us."

OK SVG, so you just want your guys to let LeBron dunk instead of wrapping him up on a fastbreak? Yeah, didn't want those to happen, did you?

"For us the foul trouble became a real problem because it was two of our three key guys offensively. They were in some foul trouble too, but other than Delonte West in the 4th quarter, I mean, LeBron's not in foul trouble, which he never is, and Mo Williams isn't in foul trouble, so I mean their key guys are in there, and Dwight and Rashard are out."

I can't believe every one gives up on the Cavs already. They only down 1-2, thats not bad at all.
Magic are a really bad match up for us. MB has to change his defensive scheme a bit, I am willing to bet 50$ that Cavs win game 4.
I will take that bet.

Lmao our starting front court fouled out, DWest had 5 fouls, Mo had 4, and pretty much everyone else had 3 each. Howard fouled out at the very end of the game. We had 34 pf's compared to their 24. Its pretty sad to cry about fouls after you win and your team shot so damn many.

Craig Sager can go to hell. Trying to bait Z into giving locker room material or admitting the Cavs are inferior.

Is JJ healthy enough to play yet? I would like to see him get some minutes to see if his athletic ability and finishing touch around the rim would really help us.

I hate Van Dumby with a passion! He's a fat old windbag that riles up even his own players with his constant bitching and whining! I can't wait for the "Master of Panic" (props to Shaq Diesel) to cost his team the series. Mark my words, it'll happen!

We need to use more of our bench, it doesn't seem like our guys have enough to finish out these games. I think DBlock and TK need to get some minutes, they're both good defenders and I think they would help with some our match up problems. Big Z and Andy are both weak and getting beat up inside and Delonte barely gets any rest at all. Time to start using the bench. If they suck pull them out, but at least see if they can do anything.

It's funny because during the 76ers series Stan mentioned something about the 76ers coach trying to advicate for calls in their next game and that seems to be what Stan is doing to us. He is trying to let the refs know that Lebron is getting calls he doesnt deserve but joke is on him because Lebron does what he does and he will make the refs call fouls by how many times he attacks the rim.

Thank you, in the first three games of this series what has the Cavs' D done to show we can stop this team. It would be one thing if the supporting cast was hitting shots but they aren't. Plus the bench has been MIA except for a couple of possessions. Yes we can win on Tuesday and tie back up but I can't say that will happen with a great vote of confidence.

That's because they attacked the rim while we settled for jumpshots for about 80% of the time.

Mo just said something like:

"Man I just need to figure out how I can get open and make shots, I can't be concerned with Anthony Johnson's elbow. I have bigger fish to fry, Anthony Johnson plays 12 minutes a game."
