The Cavs won last night. They won HUGE. It wasn't even a contest for most of the game.
Generally, this is where I include an Ace Hood song or a video of me A Town Stompin in a Sheetz at 4AM on a Tuesday or something. This is a space to turn up, and rarely should an opportunity be missed. We can turn up 80 more times though, so today we start with something a little somber.
God Speed, Flip Saunders
The Timberwolves won last night after an emotional few days since Team president Flip Saunders passed away. It was nice a moment before and after the game. We don't have a ton of nice moments on the internet. Everyone is horrible to each other. Please stop being horrible to people on the internet. You never know what they have going on.
Extended Game Analysis
We wrote a recap, sure. But there has to be something more to be said right? Something advanced and all encompassing that really captures the statistical domination the Cavs imposed? Well, I did a deep look into things and the following chart will really give you a good idea of what happened.

New story: LeBron James said the Cavs are going to get Kevin Love back to "All-Star status" this season https://t.co/qDGjEZnjeX— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) October 29, 2015
Kevin Love told LeBron last summer he wanted a bigger role in this system. James listened. Final thoughts are up: https://t.co/xuLGCKDue5— Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) October 29, 2015
A first for LeBron: He's never scored 12 points or less and had his team win by so much. Cavs won by 30 tonight with him scoring just 12.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) October 29, 2015
Timo misses a three-pointer (he's career 6-32, .188) from the corner at halftime buzzer and lets out three HUGE f-bombs. Awesome.— Joe Gabriele (@CavsJoeG) October 29, 2015
Thoughts on tots
So there is a new luckiest man in the world. Some Grizzly fan hit a half court shot and got free tater tots for life. Maybe a year. I dunno. One of those. It's cool though and it really makes you think.
Tater tots and chill? https://t.co/AOQ27ODaKy— Austin (11-5) (@LC_Brownsfan) October 29, 2015
Wonder what that dude is gonna with those tots. Could make a handbag out of them. A tot tote.— FearTheSword (@FearTheSword) October 29, 2015
Now, reading that above, you would think that everyone would be FLOODING into my mentions to congratulate me for great humor. I did a good tweet, they would surely say.
NOPE. NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE. Never. Not on hatin ass twitter.

Basically everyone on the internet is jealous of my quick wit and ability to eat wings without getting a single drop of sauce on my face. Some good people contributed to the humor though

I actually had tears laughing at "traitor tots". Related: I laugh and cry almost always.
The Lakers lost and Kobe shot like 5-900 or something. Then he called a time out on a break with 5 seconds left when Byron was saying to push it instead, and the Lakers final play went to Lou Williams who missed.
Byron Scott got that play call from David Blatt. Unlike LeBron, Kobe isn’t enough of a leader to shoot it down. MY COLUMN:— Sean Highkin (@highkin) October 29, 2015
"It's all right, Smush, we'll get 'em next time." "It's Lou, Kobe." "Not anymore."— Andrew Lynch (@AndrewLynch) October 29, 2015
G'night, sweet Smush.
The beginning of the season is dumb
The following tweet isn't even incorrect. The beginning of the year is dumb and provides no predictive value, but you already knew that.

When you're SO WRONG about a player, admitting it is the first step
I question the Pistons, they win. I hate on Waiters, and he steps up. Nice to be wrong.— David Zavac (@DavidZavac) October 29, 2015
The Cavs host the Miami Heat in their home opener on Friday. The Heat are dorks. We'll see you then.
