Nwaba out vs twolves. Sore kneeIf you add Ewe Blab's outside jumper to younger Sidney Moncrief's hustle, that's Nwaba. I really don't want think it's a coincidence that the Cavs have become competitive now that Nwaba is on the floor. They needed Sexton to become an Alpha on offense and they needed Nwaba's infectious energy.
BTW - I had heard Ewe Blab had the flexibility of a Soviet Gymnist. Couldn't play basketball but that's besides the point.
Nwaba was matched up with mostly Thad except for some switches and zones. Dipo just seemed to have an off night shooting and he didn't attack the rim the way he usually does. Lots of decent team defense by the Cavs tonight and we were stronger than normal in the paint.I didn't get to watch as closely as I wanted to. Was he matched up on young all night or did he play a part in shooting down Oladipo?
It seemed like the defense was much better tonight.
Many Thad Young should have come orour w in the Love trade. He is a Cavs killer bonafide stud. Quietly one of the best defenders in the East.
Pacers remind me if the 2007-8 Cavs. Not great scoring team, but one that tries to outwork you and defends like hell every night
