Great win for the Cavs. Mike Brown's still the coach, and yes, our offense looked great tonight. We moved the ball, had plenty of assists and made outside shots. All I read on these posts is how Mike Brown's offense is horrible, he needs to hire and offensive genius for a bench coach, Mike Brown should be fired, etc..... All a bunch of hogwash. Did anyone consider that it's our players who fall into lapses and don't run the system effectively? I think the inconsistencies on offense have more to do with the fact that this new group that we've brought in still hasn't played together that long yet.

We also made some good adjustments from the first 2 games, but the most important factors were Mike Brown shrinking his rotation down to 8 giving Delonte more time on the floor and Delonte responding by pushing the ball and being more aggressive in the half-court set. When we hit our outside shots, we win, when we don't, we lose. I don't know why someone like Delonte plays passive and timid one game, and then looks like Deron Williams the next. I just hope we keep the intensity up, keep moving the ball and stay aggressive on offense. And most important, keep hitting the open shots. Hopefully, Lebron will get going too. Also, Ben Wallace was huge in that first quarter by sparking our offense with his defense.
