What is it good for? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Speaking of absolutely nothing -- the Cavaliers' defense. Cleveland has decided to basically not play any defense at all in recent games and surprisingly (not actually surprisingly), it has hurt them. Tonight, it'd be great if they could play some defense.

The Celtics haven't been very good this year and have suffered three consecutive blowout losses. Anybody else want to make it four in a row for them? I sure do. The obvious storyline here is Kyrie Irving vs. Rajon Rondo. Rondo has been much better this year than he has been in recent years, although he's kind of struggling a bit lately, kind of. Tonight should be an interesting test for Kyrie. Kyrie's offense is pretty consistently awesome and now we really need him to get decent defensively. Byron Scott keeps calling out Kyrie and he will continue to do so until Kyrie steps up as a leader and gets the rest of the team playing defense as well.

To prepare for this game, I am currently playing a game of NBA 2k13 on my xbox. I will let you know how it turns out when I'm done. And that will be how tonight's game goes because that's how this thing works. I think. I don't really understand technology.

UPDATE:

I played the game on 2k13 and I'm terrible at defense so we lost 109-103. But Kyrie Irving scored 54 points. So that's gonna happen. Oh and nobody got hurt! Progress!
