    Hoping for a sweep. Or a 4-1 series win. Hoping Kyrie heals up some in this short rest period, and that TT and Iman can stay at the level that they closed the Chicago series out. We are pretty good on both sides of the ball when they are playing well. Demarre Carroll gonna have a tough time checking the king.

    In LBJ we trust. As long as he's healthy, anything is possible. We need to get Kyrie healthy, though.....sit him a game or two if we must.

    What have we learned so far ?
    We can win on the road in the playoffs 5-1. better than the 4-1 at home. 9-2 over all.
    my gosh if we can go 7-6 you know what happens ........................

    LBJ is the best player since Magic at making his team mates better. surely not the first time it's been said but it means more NOW. why ? no Wade, Bosh, Love, and very little Kyrie.
    The Man is like a Heart Surgeon he rips it out of his opponents and transplants in his guys. If he finds His Jumper somewhere .....World look out.

    Then post game when asked about iso slow down in the last of the 4th qtr he owns it.. all on me Coach LBJ said.

    JR speaking post game saying his most joy of playing so well with us: he's most happy for his
    Mother. how much does that say about him ? not the typical thoughts people have put on him over the years.
    JR plays the complete game 8 rebounds 3 dimes along with Record breaking Shooting.
    This is truly next man up Ladies & Gentlemen.

    Our Team second half Defense was stifling, Delly Literally Fighting thru picks. opposing players just can't stand him. lol he cuts their game ...in their brain. He reminds me of Hayden Ballantyne.


    The Big guys TT & Maserati out worked all comers. what are they going to do about that ? good luck

    Yes I'm Enjoying the post season.

    Our team's gone beast mode at the perfect time. I said all season that we need our role players to step up if we want any shot at the championship and that's exactly what's happened.

    JR gets a bad reputation because of his frivulous lifestyle but the dude has one of the biggest hearts and would do anything for his fans. Yet he's the kind of guy who probably gets labelled a "thug" by the media (why is that?... we all know).

    LBJ, say what you will. We aren't where we are without him.

    It would be a little embarrassing losing to GS in the Finals...and especially to HOU.

    Curry is the weakest, most embarrassing MVP...worse than Nash, who was by statistics the 41st best player.
    MVP is a total joke.

    At least LeBron has MVP as total EXTRA motivation to kill in the NBA Finals this year. We're the HUNTER.

    No way we lose to Houston. GS worries me though...

    Don't want to get ahead of ourselves. Still need to beat Atlanta 3x more times.

    Edit: Disagree completely about Nash. He was the best playmaker in the NBA when he won, a huge boost to his team. That's what MVP should be. Curry however, he is not deserving. That should've been Harden's or James' award...

    Agreed, must finish Atlanta off first, but Im still optimistic about a 4-1 win or a sweep, especially with Carroll going down. Milsap just isn't going to get it done on the King, although I do give him props during the slow down mode at the end of game one. LBJ was like 2 of 10 wasting clock and going one on one at him, a lot of the time Milsap checking him near midcourt. I agree whole heartedly about GS EE. Watching the game, I was screaming at the tv the whole first half as Tiny Teague tore us a new one. I didn't watch Atlanta much during the reg season and I guess didn't really realize how good Teague is. We had no answer for him, what so ever it seemed. Delly couldn't check him, Kyrie hobbled up couldn't do it either. GS proved in beating Memphis that they can defend down low, ZBO and Gasol are crazy good, and GS guard and wing play is 2nd to none.4 of their starting 5 can stroke from deep. Mozgof-Bogut, TT-Draymond, King-Barnes, Iman and JR chasing Klay around, who's checking Steph? If Teague is giving us fits, whats Steph gonna do to us? Def helped Kyrie in only having to play 3 mins of 4th quarter, But I feel if we can get up 2-0 going to Cleveland or leave Cleveland at 3-1, need to sit Kyrie a game, hopefully to heal some more. Im freaking stoked tho. I've been waiting for this since MJ facialed Ehlo in 89. GO CAVS!

    I think this deep into the ppost season, what Lebron has done earns him the most valuable player in the league. Miami was terrible this tear without him and hes still winning without Love and a 75% Kyrie. But at the end of the regular season, I felt and still do that Steph Curry should have been the MVP. I'm not going to throw out a bunch of stats, but GS finished 63-15. 10 games ahead of the second place Grizz who are no joke. GS is the leagues most efficient defense and 3rd efficient on offense. 2 things I think a lot of people don't realize about him. 1. GS finished with a 10+ ppg wins during the regular season, meaning Steph averaged about 6 less mins a game than Harden and Lebron, statistics lost on the bench for sure. And finally this year 2. He focused on defense and played it amazingly well actually guarding point guards this yr instead of Klay checking them and putting Steph off the ball to save his legs for the offensive side of the ball as they did under Mark Jackson (Steve Kerr is a bad Mofo). Currys offensive and defensive net rating combined is 16.4 ABSURD numbers. I just can't wait to see these two rookie head coaches play in the finals, and I think we will then find out who is the MVP this year.

    Cavs simply demoralizing the Hawks on their own court. This Atlanta team is/was a scary matchup, but the Cavs are amazing thus far. They need six more wins.....

    Thinking back tho. ATL embarrasses us early on. We respond in kind at the start of our streak of dominance (what, 12 losses since January?).

    We don't fear Atlanta... They are definitely shaken.

    He's been amazing to be sure....switch him and Steph Curry on the rosters and my guess is it doesn't end well for the Cavs. LBJ's no doubt the true MVP in my mind. He makes everyone better...motivates everyone. We got Shump and JR for a song and now they are KEY players on this roster.....Carmello had the chance and couldn't do that....I'm not sure anyone other than LBJ could.

    The Hawks gave up before the third quarter was half over. That is what LeBron does to teams now. Pretty impressive how the Cavs role players continually step it up.
    just beat it

    Not quite as good as Tony Allen mic'ed up for G2 vs GS but still great, and more relevant to us
