True, I agree that it is possible for the Lakers to lose. You didn't say that they might lose. You said they would but the current statistics show the Lakers as the favorites.

You can say you want them to lose or you think they will lose but you can't say they will lose or that are likely to lose. The numbers clearly show the Lakers as the favorites and to deny that is ludicrous.

I mean don't get me wrong I love watching basketball but watching James dominate much much weaker opponents has been straight up boring. I want some Jordan type domination against physical and competitive teams. So far we've seen only Jordan type stats (or as the Lebron fans would suggest, far greater Jordan stats) but at least personally I been very bored.

I know Cavs fans must be rocking. I'd feel the same way if the Rockets were dominating in this fashion.

This is a good win to show defense still keeps you in the game when your offensive isn't doing so good.

The extended rest waiting for Orlando or Boston will be nice for the Cavs. Big Z can rest his sprained ankle, Varejao can rest his tweaked wrist that he got today and when he got slapped on the shoulder/neck last game.

An 8th double-digit lose when the Cavs.

Interesting stat of the day? The Cavs won by double digits even though Atlanta was 26-30 from the FT line (87%) and the Cavs went 14-26 (54%).

Considering Atlanta averaged 98 points during the regular season per game and Detroit averaged 94 and they almost held them to 20 less a game, it does mean a lot.

Great defensive game from Atlanta. But they are as bad as it gets on the other end of the floor. Clueless in the halfcourt, very little perimeter shooting and just D U M B. I don't know how this team ranked 10th in offensive efficiency this season.

First of all the Cavs took nearly 20ppg of each teams average, so yeah it does mean much.

Secondly its not like the Cavs are the first team ever to play two weak opponents in a row, even though a lot of people around here like to pretend that it is. But noone else has ever held two opponents in a row to that few points.

You haven't seen how bad the Hawks offense is on a nightly basis and I have. They're horrible offensive team.

The stats also suggest the Hawks are a good 3pt shooting team... But you seen how bad they shot not only this series, but against Miami also. Remember, they got blown out THREE TIMES by Miami.

Meticode, how old is your daughter? I want to send some kind of Cavs gear to the new grandaughter in LA. She's real tiny yet, though.

They had three of this same type of offensive efforts against Miami. So really, it's not big deal.

Hopefully, these series will give the organization all the ammunition it needs to fire Woody. We're offensively inept.
