This is a short note on the Cavs so far.
I've read several comments about the Cavs being tired and potentially overworked. There might be some truth to this as their schedule has been unfavorable so far. They have played H,R,R,H,R,R. That is essentially 6 different cities in 6 games to open the season. The surprise team of the league on the other hand, Philadelphia has played H,R,H,H,H,H- with their one R game in Washington a 3 hour drive from Philly. Basically the 76ers have traveled a total of 6 hours while the Cavs have gone from Cle to NC (6 hours) to Ind (6 hours) to Cle (3 hours) to Mil (6 hours) to Phl (6 hours).
The bad news is their schedule is terrible for the foreseeable future. Back to CLE, then Chi, Min, Cle, Was, Cle, NO, SA, Cle, Bos, Cle. The Cavs won't play two games in the same city until Dec 7th and 10th.
Its probably going to be a bumpy ride until then.
