Looks like Cavs hold up a lot better than Western playoff contenders when facing GSW
God. Damn.

It's not bad at all man. It's the truth...

I love our team. But I'm learning to temper my expectations with them. We're a good team but at the end of the day, I'm cognizant to what our ceiling is.

Come playoff time there's really only so much we can do. If paired up with Indy, we'd obviously be the favourites but I would be far from shocked if they topped us.

DD and Lowry are solid pieces but let's be honest... They're both 3rd options on a championship team.

The Raptors also have some serious young talent that could pan out...OG seems to be good, Poetl and Siakam are serviceable..

Can you imagine the Raps with Lowry and Ibaka coming off the bench? Probably sounds ludicrous but that would be a pretty good team.

Their roster is pretty good overall and I don't think they need to fix much but they don't seem to be able or wanting to do it.

I guarantee the Wiz are about to make a run over the next 25 games. Finally getting healthy and the bench has improved tremendously.
