It's almost real. After a highly entertaining game on Monday night against the Chicago Bulls that just might be an Eastern Conference Finals preview, the Cavaliers finish up their preseason tonight in Memphis against a team that has been good to very good over the last couple years. LeBron James won't play, so you'll have to make do with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Anderson Varejao, Dion Waiters and the gang.
I'm sure you will survive.
When Marc Gasol plays Memphis can play with anyone. As new commenter cultice mentioned in the preview thread, the Grizzlies frontline is no joke. The Cavaliers three big men will need to hold their own as they did against the Bulls. Of course, it goes both ways. Kevin Love will draw Zach Randolph out to the perimeter in ways the Z-Bo is simply not going to be comfortable with.
It will also be fun to see Irving and Mike Conley go toe to toe. Both are good, but they do it in very different ways. See you in the comments.
