You know he seems to be 6'5 and he gets around anybody. He's also has a big frame - TV doesn't catch it. To me he's a top ten player right now.

Damn, wish he had made that. I'm sure he'll pull it on someone another day.

Thing I notice with him is that he likes to start from left hand and dribble it between his legs to his right hand and leads to a drive or a set up jump shot. Durant does it as well but he starts from the right hand to the left.

But probably the move I like the most is the high dribble and then pull back the ball with the two step footwork then finish with left hand.

Kryie played well, Tyler Zeller probably had one of his worst games as a pro. Nobody was getting back and playing transition D, Nobody was communicating on D, Nobody was boxing the F*ck out, etc. Last night's game was probably the most frustrating thing to watch. They GAVE denver that win.

Please. Denver was having far from a great game. They just took advantage of Cleveland's laziness and Zeller's bitch-assedness around the basket. Denver should have outright dominated the cavs.

the offense looked horrible though, and he didnt really take control of it. either look to score himself, or even better; try get some easy buckets for his teammates.

it felt like we should have gotten blown out by 20, and we probably would have, if not for gee's improbable hot start.

Make whatever excuses you want to take credit from Denver - fact is we played well and earned a solid win on the road vs a tough team.

I also didn't think Kyrie had a very good game, despite his nice all-around numbers. He was struggling to break-down the defense, which he normally makes look very easy. That is a credit to the way Denver was playing him, but he also just didn't seem to have that "it" last night.

He just missed some shots that he normally makes. The defense played him well, but he just couldn't get the shots to fall.

Watching Kyrie, TT, and Waiters lately makes me think that the Cavs will be a pretty good team in a few years. Thompson has really impressed me with his scoring and Waiters will compliment Kyrie nicely.

Kryie is definitely top 10 IMO.
