Milwaukee Bucks at Cleveland Cavaliers game thread: Giannis at the point

Kyrie Irving is going to sit this one out, but the Greek Freak starts at point guard for Milwaukee

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Preseason game number three! And the second without point guard Kyrie Irving. The Cavaliers looked pretty good in Brazil without him, and this gives other Cavaliers the opportunity to make an impression of new coach David Blatt. Still, it's a bit of a bummer that Irving misses the opportunity to get game action in with a new system and teammates. It isn't debilitating, of course, and it's a marathon, so it makes sense.

The Milwaukee Bucks were bad last year and figure to be bad again. They do have Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak might be the most overrated player in the game right now, but he is very young, very tall, very long, and could develop into a really valuable piece down the road. I don't really understand why people think he should be at point guard, but then, well, Jason Kidd knows point guards better than I do.

Anyway, discuss the game here. I'm told the Cavaliers have LeBron James and Kevin Love.
