I was posting this on the REALCAVSFANS forum and people seemed to like it. Will post it here. I am three games in.
A lot of people might call this cheap... I created a 76(rating) 19 year old rookie so i wouldn't lose interest in the association. He only plays around 20 minutes a game... and is playing horrible this year BTW.
I edited a few players so it was more realistic.
Lowered KG's Blocking
Upped Kobe's passing and rebounding a tiny bit
upped Lebron James blocking/steals/on ball defense 4 points each

Mo Williams-20 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists
Lebron james-12 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals
Leon Powe-17 points, 7 rebounds
Kevin Garnett-16 points, 8 rebounds
In this game defense was the only thing happening. Combined the two teams shot 64-146. It was a true team effort for the cavaliers though, with every player besides sasha pavlovic scoring more than 4 points. Hassan Kane's rookie Debut was not something to write home about, going 2-9 and 0-4 from 3 point land. Mo Williams was the attraction to the game though, scoring 20 points total and 11 in the 4th(If i remember right). He hit the game winning shot with 12 seconds to go off of a Zydrunas Ilgauskas pick and roll.
The Cavs have many aspects to improve on, even with there victory. The Cavaliers 3 man PF/C rotation only scored 14 points combined(Z 5, BW 5, AV 4). They also only shot 6-19 from the 3 and 10-19 from the free throw line. if they want to contend they will need to be more efficient.
View from Celtics
The reason for the Celtics defeat was simple, Turnovers and lack of back court production. Rajon Rondo and Ray allen only combined for 16 points on 4-11 shooting. If you add paul pierce into the situation they shot 9-25 from the floor.

The Cavaliers win another tough one on the road against a young bobcats team. The Cavaliers darted of to a great start winning the first quarter 37-24.

The Cavaliers could not extend there winning streak against A great Hornets team. Even though the Cavs were able to Keep Chris Paul and the Hornets under there season average 115 points the Cavs were not able to produce enough offensively. The Bigs continued to struggle scoring wise as Ben Wallace had 0 points, Anderson Varejao had 4, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 7. Although it is not because of a lack of shots taken by Zydrunas Ilgauskas, he is only shooting 37% from the field.
Ben Wallace continues to find ways to support the Cavs while only scoring 4 points. He had 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks.

This marks the third straight game the Cavaliers have out rebounded there opponent by 1 rebound.
