Bring it Bron Bron
Who can photo-shop in IT4 and LBJ here?
Hit your 3s and see what happens.
Jaylen on LeBron until they foul him out in 15 min. Marcus on TT when he's in the game. Hit shots when they triple team IT. Let's do this shit!
Let's give Gordon Haywire something to think about with a big win against the defending champs!
Don't let us win tonight!
Actually, just let us win tonight.
More Jaylen. Compete on the boards.
Play Jaylen for 20+ minutes please.
Don't let Cleveland start fast or it's over. This team has had a bad habit of letting teams bust of out of the gate and then coming back. Cleveland will win by 20+ if that happens again. Start fast, hit shots.
B-Robb tweets that Gerald Green will start in Amir's place. Not thrilled with this. I wish it were Jaylen.
Same here. This isn't very encouraging, dude needs to be on LeBron for 30+ min tonight.
While peeps are waiting, if you want to see some video analyzing Fultz's pull-up game, see http://www.draftexpress.com/article/Markelle-Fultz---Pull-Up-Game-5742/
The advanced stats showed that when Gerald and LBJ were on the floor at the same time in G1 the Celtics' defensive rating was way higher. Looks like grasping at straws if you ask me. My eyes told me JB should be playing LeBron.
I am scared, sorry Drew
I would guess Brad wants to let Jaylen play with the second unit. Cavs usually have LBJ fronting that unit so JB can get some minutes guarding him. Plus it'll be easier for JB to be physical if he doesn't have to worry about trying to go 30 minutes and not fouling out.
Wonder how they are going to match up? I mean is GG going to be guarding LBJ, TT, and Love?
Shout out to JCizzle for nailing this on Wednesday night.
GG on LBJ will be uglier than Buzz's girlfriend.
Let's see Gerald Green bring the clothesline to LeBron, brotha, McHale style!
Gerald sucks but this is about trying to put some pressure on the Cavs defense, not so much about defending them better. When IT is being doubled so ferociously you can't have a zero offensive like Amir out there.
Whether it should be Jaylen instead is obviously up for debate but it's worth checking out how the refs are calling it and how the game is flowing before throwing a rookie out there in a tough spot. Let Brown and Rozier do some work on the second unit.
Gerald just doesn't compete if he's not heaving up bad shots. He won't help us on the boards and he won't help on D.
Confusing, disappointing choice.
Bradley on Irving, Thomas on Smith, Green on LeBron, Crowder on Love, Al on TT.
Fuck rebounding, I guess.
He wasn't totally outclassed in game one, but I think that was more a function of the time remaining than anything else. They're both ~6'7" and are long to my eyes, but Jaylen has 25 pounds on GG.
If nothing else I hope this is entertaining as fuck. Hit some shots and let's win 135-130 in regulation!
Got some Heady Topper for tonight. Had one when we won Game 7 so hopefully some Alchemist mojo tonight.
We'll never score. You can bench GG now.
When the shots are short in the paint, you know it's probably over.
Nothing to do with Cleveland, we just suck at shooting.
Great start, offense!
They have nothing left to give, just exhausted
If they keep missing shots like this, won't really matter how they handle Lebron on the other end. They'll already be dead.
GG just in to foul LBJ
IT4 has to penetrate and kick. Only chance on O.
There goes the shutout.
Jae and AB afraid to shoot. Crowd wants to be into this so bad
If Green is going to start, shouldn't he have touched the ball on offense by now?
At least GG will shoot it
Great shot by Green. He needs to match the instant offense of Smith.
Yeah, another blowout is on its way.
Orrr GG is there to score points too!
GG for the win.
Crowd is so loud. Admirable
Lol "box out". You mean foul?
James already working the refs.
how did we come out of that start only down 1?
Gerald saved the season
