Really embarrassing. But a key problem with this team was very much amplified in this game, poor perimeter defense. Garland & Mitchel look like they just aren't giving the effort on that side of the court, Lavert doesn't use his brain and seems to always be out of place, and the 3s are too slow to rotate when they have to guard outside shooting wings in the half court. Looks like the book is out on how to score on CLE and it is now up to the staff to find an answer to keep other teams from having season best shooting days when they play the Cavs.
I’m also not sure JB is the coach that will take the Cavs to the top of the mountain. Maybe he can, but sometimes the coach that gets the team competitive just isn’t good enough to get them to the ring.

I think Mobley figured it out … he had been trying to post up … and was getting pushed around by the bigger guys … for last few games he has been using his speed to get around them instead … he is much faster than most of the other bigs …38 pts tonight … if he keeps this up, its going to make the Cavs real tough.

Once again an outsider shooter has a great 3 point evening against the Cavs, this is very much a reoccurring theme this season. Also when the geezer brigade, Love & Rubio, comes in together off the bench the offensive pace slows to a crawl and is becoming a problem, usually bench guys provide a spark but not this group.

I'm sure if the Knicks sucked bad enough to have half a million top 5 picks over the past dozen years their future would look bright too.
They have. They just keep trading away picks, or making the wrong picks. They haven’t done anything since Pat Riley, John Starks and Anthony Mason were there.

Late January loss in NYC to start a road stand following a back-to-back home stand against Golden State and Milwaukee. File this one away in the who cares column, and I bet they had multiple players more interested in hitting the Manhattan clubs and partying than they were in playing this pre all-star break game.
