Mobley, Garland, Mitchell, and Allen. This Cavs team is going to make noise for years to come.

Celtics really, really need Rob healthy. They're looking at stiff competition in the East

he’s always trying to grift. He shot that jumper in OT because he thought he had contact and would get free throws. He does that shit too much and it doesn’t work a lot
To be fair, there was some contact, but the refs aren't going to call that often in OT.

Yeah, we're not even mentioning the Bucks, who are unbeaten—without Middleton and Connaughton.

they desperately need TL or another BIG.

Horford + 3 minutes of Kornet at the 5 isn't a good situation
yup.

This was always a problem and why I’ve been pounding the table to add SOMEONE. Horford should be treated with kid gloves and needs a lot of rest. TL will be the same when he comes back. They really, really need another starting caliber big man

The C's don't make it to overtime without Smart. That last shot sucked, but he made play after play late in the game.

We got the full Marcus Smart experience tonite.
Well he should only make good plays and not bad ones.

I wish we had Chris Paul.

Yeah and it’s annoying as fuck. No ref is calling that garbage in OT.

I’m probably being unduly hard on Smart because he is annoying the fuck out of me this season so far and hasn’t had a great stretch yet but if the defense continues to be shit while he is out there I guess I am wondering why he should get so many more minutes than the better player sitting on the bench.

And I know this is personality management as much as anything but I think they are leaving something on the table. Once TL is back I really think it should be Brogdon out there but I know it won’t happen.

They need to play Griffin
They need to do something other than playing Al a shitload of minutes. I don’t understand how Kornet is 7’2 yet so fucking bad at rebounding. If could grab boards and play a little interior defense/rim protection he’d play 15 a night but he stinks.

I've seen Tatum miss plenty of those shots. I didn't mind giving Jaylen a turn. He got about as good a look as you're going to get in that situation.
I don't mind Jaylen taking the shot but it still seems odd that Tatum wasn't even a threat to get the ball.

They gotta move PP for a serviceable NBA big. It's the only option. They're looking like a 5-6 seed at best otherwise.
Who are the 4-5 teams ahead of them?

Bucks and Cavs look good early. But struggling to find 2-3 more east teams that grade out better, and Rob should be back by January.

Sorry the Cavs are still young and missed a ton of shots and the Celts were not even in playoff mode yet --I'm not ready to say they are true contenders yet
