Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New Orleans Pelicans: The Twitter Experience.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

The Cavs made some improvements tonight, but found the same result. Fearless in the face of adversity, I dove into twitter to see what was going on.

Well..... that was fun, at least. The Cavs shot the ball well and played with some intensity, but waned at the end. Earl Clark is a ridiculous three point shooter somehow, and I got a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue as a present.

Normally, I run through the entire game, telling the story, but we're gonna start with me getting made fun of first.

First, yes, I did botch that saying. HORRIBLY. Second, I reject the notion that I am in some way a relentless homer, or should be doom and gloom all the time. The Cavs stink right now, I have never said anything different. I mean, I just ripped them all for their effort and pride as a competitor. It's hard for me, when there is so much doom and gloom, negativity, and hyperbolic freakouts to be that guy that piles on. Yeah, I might be overboard on defending Dion and Bennett sometimes, because I think there needs to be counterpoints when the entirety of Cavs twitter is just a bash fest. When Kyrie is passing up open shooters for 1 on 4's, and I refresh twitter to see people complaining about Dion "not showing up" in the second half being the problem, I get frustrated. This wasn't about any of that though. I just thought the Cavs looked better tonight than in previous outings, which is true. Sure they still lost, obviously, but baby steps man. I'll take what I can get right now.

Example A: Where did Dion go? Earl Clark and Jarrett Jack both played a ton of minutes in the second half. They were on fire. The hot hands played.

Example B: See response for example A.

If you're down right now, I get it, a lot people are:

Even me sometimes!

This one I vehemently disagree with. Clark was 3-5 on threes tonight. Was wide open on multiple occasions.

I mean..... this was before tonight. RIDE THE HOT HAND.

Cool Stuff happened in this game though:

All in all, it was a fun game. The Cavs looked better, and hopefully are building to some more consistency, and more importantly, WINS. In that nature, we close with some positive tweets:

Ok, not all positive.

So... we play in San Antonio tomorrow. I expect blood.
