2018 PLAYOFFS: (4) Cleveland vs. (5) Indiana

Postby Lamrock on Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:31 am

While the Bucks could overcome their 36 point halftime deficit to the Sixers, the Cavs are losing to NY anyway so we can pretty much call it: the Cavs will play the Pacers in the first round.

I'm not gonna lie, I haven't seen a single minute of Pacers basketball this season. For all I know their very existence was fabricated in the name of basketball reasons, and they will be swept by Cleveland on NBA TV, and we'll all just nod our heads and say, "makes sense"... Apparently Oladipo is having a breakout year, Darren Collison is shooting the ball well, and Myles Turner still exists, but I still have a hard time giving them a chance in this series. While I'll always love the duo of Kevin Pritchard and Nate McMillan for leading the Portland Trail Blazers to several championships, they seem like an overachieving team heading into the LeBron wood-chipper.

Cavaliers in 4.

Cavs in 5, I want to have faith in the Pacers, but no. Playoff LeBron.

I wouldn't be shocked if it happened. Even though they finished with a 50-32 record, they have looked vulnerable and had stretches where they've struggled. I don't think it's out of the question.

At the same time, it's really tough to pick against them because of LeBron. I'm going with the Cavs in six, but there is part of me that thinks we could see a Cleveland collapse, and subsequent Indiana upset.

Cavs in 5 with one game of Lance Stephenson playing well and harassing LeBron again to fool the Pacers fans into a illlusionary hope of winning another game only for LeBron and the Cavs to beat them by 40 in the final game of the series.

Cavs are weak and LeBron is old. Post Heat era LeBron hasn't been impressive. His decline due to aging should show significantly in this year's playoffs especially along with dysfunctional team put together in Cleveland.

CLE in tough 6.

Indiana won the season series 3-1, but I really have no thoughts on this series (not sure if that's a good or bad thing); I don't even know who the Cavs starting 5 is, as it's been unstable af. I'm guessing Hill-Hood-James-Green-Love. I don't like Love at center - I'll go Pacers in 7 just to choose something.

I think the Cavs got very lucky during the last stretch of games, and that luck is going to run out at the wrong time for them. During that stretch and the earlier 19 and 2 (?) stretch, LeBron James done the carrying: even with many triple doubles and godlike figures, his Cavs were winning by fairly slender margins. I also don't think the Cavs are that good to begin with. At home, at least until half way through the season, the Cavs had a weird as hell points differential of just +2 points even removing the Isaiah Thomas games. They were winning less by larger margins on the road. From what I've seen since then, their home differential probably didn't change a whole lot. So for whatever reason, I think home court advantage may not be that great an advantage for them. I'm giving the Pacers the series in 7, maybe 6 games. It may be wishful thinking, it is the outcome I want to see and it gives me something else to root for this season. The Pacers were 3-1 against them in the season. Their 1 win came with Isaiah Thomas in the starting line up. All 3 losses came without Isaiah Thomas, although 2 of the 3 losses were decided by less than 5 points...

LeBron at the end of the first quarter had 2 points, 0-3 from the field (2 points from the foul line). Not gonna cut it, they got into the hole in the first and never got out of it.

Nice work by Oladipo and Indiana.

Triple-double for LeBron to open the series, but Pacers come out on top. If nothing else, there'll be no sweep for Cleveland.

Just shows how end of game stats can be total bunk. People who just read the box score will go "he did all he could do", but the first quarter was what decided the game. They never dug out of the hole.

Looks good on paper, though.

Not to mention that at this point of the year, a W is far more crucial than a TD. All good if you can get both, but if the best you can say is "check my stats", then you've still fallen short of the goal.

Cavs in 4 not looking as good now...

Kudos to the Pacers for punking them, and for not totally collapsing when Cleveland would try to make a run. I expect the Cavs to crush them in game two, but I have to give Indy a lot of credit.

At least they can't blame this loss on Isaiah Thomas. Nor could they blame any of the other v Indiana losses during the regular season on Isaiah Thomas (who only participated in 1 of the 4 matches and that was the 1 they won), but it turns out they did*. So come to think of it...

This Cavs team is so underratedly dysfunctional. Love at center is horrible defensively, while everyone was crying about Green missing 6 shots; at least give me Zizic at 5 and Love at 4, if even in limited minutes.

I still stand by Indy in 7.

So, not a double digit victory, but the Cavs do even the series. I'll still pick them in 6, with the Pacers evening up the series at home in Game 4 before the Cavs take the final two to advance.

Sabonis had part of his right hand on the ball, LeBron was just plowing again. Not saying it wasn't a foul on Sabonis (his left hand),but that is a joke as a flagrant.

The only reason the Cavs won was because Dipo got into foul trouble early and McMillan overreacted by benching him immediately (only finished with 3 fouls anyway); not a convincing W at all... doesn't look good going into Indy.

Pacers are literally chickens with their heads cut off with Dipo on the bench and composed when he's out there; it's wild to watch.

This Cavs team is pure fumes; it will be a miracle if they make it out of the East.

That's how I first heard the news too, watching LeBron turn into a deer in the headlights (understandably). Terrible timing, wording (although I didn't remember the exact wording until you posted it), and overall lack of human compassion. I fucking hate the media.

Collison had some huge shots, if that last 3 would've gone in (believe it was Dipo who shot it), that would have been the series. Overall, the game is still seen as a positive if you're Indiana. If Lebron hits 40+pts on 70%+ and you only lose by a shot or 2 you're golden.

LeBron obviously is still great but he's in serious needs of help from teammates. Love doesnt cut it as a second best player. He is total shit dunno what happened to Wolves Love when he was great. Unfortunately, this team without LBJ doesnt look like nothing like a playoffs team. And you need a playoffs team and a superstar(s) on top to contend. This team doesnt suit the bill.

Report: Cavaliers' Love suffers partially torn ligament in left thumb

The injury bug has once again struck Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love as he sustained a partially torn ligament in his left thumb, according to an ESPN report.

But according to the team, Love is not expected to miss any time and will be ready for Friday's Game 3 at the Indiana Pacers.

Love missed six weeks earlier this season with a broken left hand. The Cavs' All-Star had 15 points and six rebounds during the Cavaliers' Game 2 victory of the Pacers.

Cleveland flipping the switch in the playoffs - only to find they haven't paid their electricity bill.

He is total shit dunno what happened to Wolves Love when he was great. Unfortunately, this team without LBJ doesnt look like nothing like a playoffs team. And you need a playoffs team and a superstar(s) on top to contend. This team doesnt suit the bill.

it's a little sad for love. he normally kills it in the early rounds against the teams that don't have bigs that can rotate out to the perimeter. don't see that bull on the boards and him throwing his weight in the post. this past game...he's a FT beggar on the perimeter. sad

and is myles turner that bad on defense he gets hidden on jr smith and/or calderon. wow

That shit was classic as fuck. I can't even complain about the Cavs; that game was so exciting.

Lol, I would love 6ers-Rockets.

This game put me in an excitement coma; I don't think I can focus on Drew Bledsoe vs. Rozier.

That was super exciting; I thought he did the best he could. It's more frustrating when you don't even get an attempt off.

He can sell it on the guarantee of a team winning their first ever title, like Mavs vs. Heat in 2006.

No matter if LBJ gets through this round, this is exactly why I didn't consider them championship caliber team in this year's playoffs. Even if they might get there somehow, look at top 3 players of each western conference powerhouses. LBJ alone won't be able to beat them in 7 game series.

All I have to say is if they ran a big lineup with LeBron back at the 3 and Love at 4 this would be a whole different series; I don't care if your center is Nance, Zizic or even TT.

I thought their most successful lineup yesterday was Clarkson-Hood-Green-Love-Nance.

There we go, another playoff loss and another round of blame Isaiah for everything:

"The season was crippled before it began by the forced trade of Kyrie Irving and by the misfit who was acquired for him, Isaiah Thomas."

But I thought the midseason trade was suppose to have rectified everything that was wrong with the team? According to the likes of Charles Barkley, they were now destined to become finals contenders with the fixes they made, not face a possible defeat in the first round?
