    Kept deferring to this teammates or got too hesitant on shooting or driving to the rim

    Because they focused on his drives and he is a horrendous shooter.
    Doubled him on the post as well.

    great job by lebron to fire a coach who can take an injured team and almost beat the golden state warriors and replace him with his friend who has a healthy team and is struggling to break even with the most mentally-fragile, rickety, undertalented, injured and arguably worst conference finalist in nba history.


    and way for cleveland in general to put themselves one off game or hot shooting game by the opponent away from facing 2 straight elimination games.

    They should listen to JVG and have the Biz guard him. The Biz can just sagg and guard the lane and dare LBJ to take those outside shots. He just can't shoot. People forgot he shot 39% FG in the NBA Finals last year, that's how he got 30 points.

    Last time I checked, mentally fragile, rickety teams don't make it to ECF and win 2 games after getting blown out twice.

    Oh and please thank Morey for Kyle and Patterson. They both have so much HEART and they both have been crucial in our TEAM WINS. That might be a foreign concept to you though.

    He can play both. JV at the 5 and Biyombo at the 4 lol. It'll shut down the paint plus Scola is absolutely useless

    And the Houston Rockets didn't win multiple championships because Yao and T-Mac were injured all the time. What's your point? The NBA happens and when it does, you better be ready to adjust and go against the best of the best night in and night out because these teams are in the playoffs for a reason. Don't make excuses for the Raptors success now.

    Are we all just going to ignore the fact that LeBron refused to attack when he had Lowry on him? I know Lowry has a phat azz, which allows him to hold his ground on a back-down, but that had shades of JJ Barrea in the 2011 Finals all over it.

    lol, yeah silly me, everyone has been remarking on what a wonderfully clutch and solid team the raps have been in barely sliding by a 7th seed and an injured miami team. and they've also complimented the players lowry and derozan have been with their historically bad shooting in their playoff careers right up through game 2 of this series. the raps have been playing like they could barely stand the pressure all playoffs, right up to lowry going to the lockerroom to decompress. they barely beat a 7th seed and did everything they could to choke that game 7 away. they have pretty much been the definition of mentally fragile and rickety in these playoffs.


    lol, how is that a foreign concept to me? i didn't realize i played for the houston rockets.
