Charlotte has 2 players better than anyone Cleveland has & we already smacked them around twice this season.

They aren't passing us.

Don't worry guys - it's about that time of the year where KRYrie Irving will twist his ankle and miss 3 weeks.

Off topic but has there been any news on Brendan Haywood coming back? Not that he would get any playing time but just curious

Expect Kyrie Irving to turn it on. He wants LeBron to come join him next year in Cleveland and he knows LeBron will only come if they stop looking like the train wreck of the first half of the season. He's going to start giving 110% rather than the 80-90% from the first half of the year.

Cavs are still three games back having won 6 ina row. I think at this point we just need to hope to get the 5th or 6th seed. That tough stretch of games starting @ SA will tell us a lot though.

The Cavs have won 7straight, and we just smacked the pistons kemba had 24pt & a career high 16 ast. What is our outlook on the rest of the year? If Cleveland stays hot and passes us which I believe will happen, do we tank it out? Or try to fight for the not so coveted 8th seed?

 

I say continue to play decent basketball.  The 8th spot is more lucrative then the 7th spot this year.  I'd rather have Cleveland pass us and stay in the eight seed.  Unless somehow we can make a run to the 5th spot....which could give us hope to actually win a playoff series.  

 

So Cleveland is getting hot but we're stilling play better ball then the current 6th and 7th seeds. 

 

Like I said....I'd rather see Indiana then Miami round 1.  Indiana is very beatable with our roster.

Anywhere 3-6 would give us a good shot at winning a series. We swept Toronto this year and they're #3.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
