People, don't get your hopes up high. Cleveland teams have made an art form of losing till the very end. Sorry so blunt, but you know I'm right.

Then what was he doing the last two games? It sure seemed to me like it was a help.

You're right. Huge presence in the paint. They can't go thru him. Did you see Noah bouncing off him BOTH nights???? When they played Orlando, Shaq held Howard scoreless for 7 minutes. Teams can't double Shaq, Bron and Jamison at the same time. Shaq needs to practice those FTs though. I can see a 'Hack a Shaq' revival happening.

I 100% agree with everything you wrote here. Very well said. Did you see Shaq in game 2 though? He went a perfect 4-4 from the line. James went 6-6 and Jamison was 1-1. We shot something like 22-24 from the line that night. While the Bulls are busy running their mouth, the Cavs are coming ready to play.

Yes, 22/24 and 56% shooting.
However, I am not going to brag about defense, good as the Cavs are in that area. There was WAY too many extra chances for the Bulls to get a bucket. I couldn't believe I was seeing that. I give Rose, Noah and Deng their props, but our defense helped THEM out!

I understand the "he's older" argument, but don't forget he just sat on his rear end for about two months. And before then, he was only playing something like 20 minutes a game. So sure he's older, but he's playing half as much and also got to rest for 2 months before the playoffs stat. He'll be fine in the playoffs once he gets his playing down.

It was nice to see the Cavs finally play our brand of defense this last game. I was getting really sick of seeing Chicago take whatever shot they wanted and no one shutting down Rose. Hopefully they keep the D going.

Thank AP, he was on Rose most of the time. Rose had 21 pts........ ON 20 SHOTS!!

Yeah, yesterday's game was WAY better D. They couldn't stop Noah though. He had 21-20. I can't believe how good his game has gotten since his Gator days.

They were calling so many fouls on us though. To have something like 7 fouls on all our bigs combined at one point in the second quarter was a joke. Once they stopped calling every little thing the Cavs pulled away. Noah wouldn't be scoring like that if the refs weren't calling Shaq for everything and anything.

Well, I hope that doesn't become the case with D Howard!

He will be more careful with Howard. He knows how important that series is, and he has pride on the line too.

Bron is in the same spot. Actually, it puts Cleveland, Akron and most of Ohio in the same spot. Talk about pressure, but experience is on their side. I think Mo will be ok, and Jamison has played in post season before. Big Z will keep them grounded. He wants it as bad as Bron and Shaq. Wish we could flash forward. lol
