Wizards 91, Cavaliers 78: Courtside Tweets

HOT TAKES AHOY

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavs got hammered on national TV by the Washington Wizards last night, 91-78. It wasn't fun for Cavs fans. The defense looked bad, the bench was non-existent again, and the Cavs got worked on the boards. Worst of all, Kevin Seraphin went bonkers on both ends, and we got to hear Jon Barry hot takes all night on the ESPN broadcast. It was an ugly evening all-around, and the Cavs are under .500 again. At least they're making the transition from being bad to good slow and familiar to us!

But enough sadness. TO THE TWITTERS!

Highlights! Well.....Highlight!

Lowlights :(

Same

Is that bad? That looks bad.

Professionals Had Thoughts!

ODORIFEROUS I SAY!

Lloyd had probably the most positive takeaways from last night's game. Particularly, I agree with Blatt's explanation for the use of bench lineups. The bench guys have been 2012-2013 Portland Trail Blazers bench bad this season, which seems like it won't last all season, and I'd rather see those guys get run and try to figure it out (particularly against a team with Otto Porter and Garrett Temple as rotation guys) than watch LeBron log 43 minutes again.

There Were Hot Takes to be Had!

#Analysis! Though he's definitely right, and this isn't really a hot take. For those we turn to noted #expert Jon Barry:

That hurt my brain

BUT NOT AS MUCH AS THIS NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE

ok

Not even going to link specific examples here because claiming this after a mid-November loss to the Wizards is dumber than Bro Who Thinks Kyrie is a Shooting Guard.

But Tonight Did Have Fun Things!

Better fundamentals than the Cavs showed on the court AMIRITE?

WELP

Can that cheese steak protect the rim better than Alex Kirk? I think it could.

If you're not familiar with @wzzntzz, I beseech you to follow and just watch and learn. Hands-down one of Basketball Twitter's most hilarious accounts.

YES

Young Poutine!

Legitimately happy for the big guy. He's doing things. On a crap team, but still.

But Remember, the Cavs Had a Better Night Than These Guys!

Good job, good effort, Tony. Better than I would do.

But that wasn't even the worst chuck of the night, no, that belongs to......

COUNT DA RINGZZZZZZZZZ

The Cavs get a re-do tomorrow night as they host the Toronto Raptors. In the meantime, let's check in on the Brow-

Welp.
