How can they defend against top NBA teams with both on the floor together ? Makes me think of Kyrie/Dion, and that prospect does nothing for me. They won't be THAT bad, but they'd still be very limited. They'd need 120 a game.Woo, Phoenix won last night so the Cavs and Suns are now tied for second worst record.
Good news is the Cavs final two games are against two very motivated teams. The Spurs are jockeying with OKC and LAC to get out of that 8 spot in the West, and the Hornets are a game back of the playoffs in the East.
Come on Cavs! Lose the final 2 games!
Also, Sexton continues to look like a solid offensive weapon for the future. I definitely think he's a 2 guard and not a point though. I hope they don't shy away from Morant just because they've got Sexton
You don’t pass on Morant if you think he’s the best available player just because you already have Sexton. Figure out what to do with Sexton later. He can be a spark plug off the bench on a playoff team, but he’ll never be a point guard for a contender. The Blazers passed on Jordan because they had Drexler.

Yes defense overall is an issue in the NBA, but they were 28th out of 30 in team defense. As such, it was a Cavs issue.I think that Larry Drew carried out the plan for the season just about perfectly. They finished in the top 3 lottery and the young guys played and generally improved during the season. Not playing defense might be more about the overall lack of defense in the league and not just a Cavs issue.
Defense is about 50% ability and 50% teamwork ... so it is not surprising that a very young inexperienced team with a lot of lineup changes would struggle on that end of the floor ... I just look at Osman, a real good athlete that had trouble defending many times this year, but could develop into a decent defender because of his athleticism ... much like Craig Ehlo did with the Cavs ... in fact that is who he reminds me of ... not great at any one thing, but good at multiple skills ... probably best coming off the bench and giving energy to the second unit.Yes defense overall is an issue in the NBA, but they were 28th out of 30 in team defense.
