lol the Cavs are getting anything they want whenever they want. Bron should go for 64~!!!

Speaking of Bron, I see he's been working on his footwork. His moves are much more fluid now.

The cavs are going to get tested and probably lose as soon as they face a team with some size and that actually attempts to play defense.

Here's a fact for you. The East has won 3 of the last 5, and 11 of the last 20 championships.

LOL at the level of competition in the East. What a joke. This is like an extended regular season.

How do Cavs fans feel knowing they won't be tested until the finals? There is no way to measure how legitimate this team is. Matchup wise, Lebron has had a cakewalk as he hasn't faced any kind of interior defense yet. The funny thing is, people will now take Lebron's stats against these garbage teams and somehow try to pass him as a good playoff performer.

Cavs don't even need to score in the 4th, Hawks can't get 30 in a quarter anyway.

You are exactly right. The East stinks... The Cavs stink... LeBron stinks. Thanks for the reminder.

"Severe angle sprain" for Joe Johnson ? Sounds like a sweep to me. Shame it has to come this way though, would rather have beaten a healthy Hawks team.

Most of your posts are hating. This being one of them. Sad much?

Yeah, that would suck. I think a healthy Hawks team are capable of taking at least one game from Cleveland in Atlanta.

I feel bad for the Hawks. I really do. JJ looks to be done for the series since they called it a "severe" ankle sprain. Josh Smith never performs well on the road, he's the typa guy who benefits a lot from playing at home. He's hyped up by the crowd and that motivates him a lot. He goes back to taking these ill-advised jumpshots when it comes to the road. Other than that, Atlanta's offense is terrible. Too predictable, involves too much isos. Then again, the Cavs defense is the best in the league. They're great in literally every aspect of defense, team, individual, hustle, interior, perimeter etc. Massive props to LeBron and co. Never expected them to do this well in the playoffs.
