Dion Waiters with a superb game so far.

23 minutes, 26 points on 10-14 shooting, 4 assists and 2 rebounds.

Kings up by 6 with about 6 minutes left.

This game is a perfect example of why Dion is such an interesting prospect. His ceiling is VERY high.j

Kyrie having an uncharacteristically awful night.

Man... Kyrie really struggling tonight. He is the reason this game was lost. Horrible turnovers leading to points at the other end multiple times down the stretch. Ugh.

On the bright side, both Waiters and Tristan were terrific. And Zeller played well, too.

This one is on Irving.

Giving up 120 points to the Kings? Really? Oh, and Luke Walton should not be playing in the NBA. He is really not good at basketball.

I also blame the coaching. Why the hell are they doing nothing but iso plays every time during the last few mins of a game? Run some freaking plays.

Offense was not the problem tonight. Giving up 124 points to the Kings? The biggest problem offensively were the turnovers which directly led to points at the other end (Kyrie over-dribbling).

The Cavs scored 118, though. That should be enough to get a win.

The Cavs' offense was scoring at a high rate down the stretch, though. The problem is they couldn't get a stop and, even worse, were giving up wide open three-pointers.

I didn't have a huge problem with the offensive gameplan. The reason they went to so many iso's is because their perimeter defenders could not match up with Kyrie and Dion.

Giving up 69 points to the Kings in the first half? That is just terrible.

Damn I had to go do something so I missed from about 4-5mins left in the 3rd quarter what happend in the 4th quarter can anyone give me a quick recap?

From the stats I think this is the first game all year MT,Reke and Cuz all did great in. Reke 6/6 and Cuz/Thornton @50% or over. Kings need to take Salmons out of the starting line up and put Thornton in, if they not going to trade ethier. Trade Brook he will be better on another team.

I guess if I was looking at this win like a Lakers fan the Kings season starts now! All abord the championship flight boarding at gate #15 lmao.

What the hell happened to Tyreke? SMH...

Was he just one of those guys who peaked really early (sorta like a Mark Jackson)? Is it the team situation/poor role or lack thereof? Did we just overrate the hell out of the kid or expect too much?

Little bit of everything, injuries as well slowed him and the fact we didn't use him like we should. He needs the ball to thrive and I rather the ball in his hands over anyone else on that team pretty much.

Is there any hope for him to achieve his potential at this point, or is it a case where he just is what he is going forward?

Honestly I don't know but its more likely the case of where he just is what he is, the jumper has improved a bit but I don't know, when hes played this year hes been great for the most part but hes missed to many games. Even if he stays at what he is imo thats very good hes impacting games even tho his stats are down from the rookie year and hes a terrific defender. Imo if we can actually get a team with role players who compliment Reke/Cousins we should be ok.
