Fear the Newsletter: #CediWatch is on

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers-Media Day Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs were off yesterday in Toronto.

LEGEND HAS IT: Game 3 is tonight at 7 p.m. With a win, Cleveland will be up 3-0. And remember: LeBron has won his last 19 series when up 2-0.

ALL DUE RESPECT: Wizards 116, Celtics 89. Things got a little chippy. Boston leads the series 2-1. Warriors 115, Jazz 104. Golden State leads the series 2-0.

Tonight's other game: Spurs-Rockets Game 3 at 9:30 p.m.. The series is tied at 1-1.

JOB WELL DONE: #CediWatch is on. Here's what we learned from Game 2. J.R.'s defense has become essential to the Cavs.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. Today's show looks at Game 3 and Osman's comments about coming to the NBA next season.

CROWN: The Ringer's Jonathan Tjarks on two of the draft's best centers having never played center. FiveThirtyEight on LeBron always being this good. SI's Rohan Nadkarni on Tony Parker's injury not crushing the Spurs' title hopes. SI's Jonathan Wilson the emergence of Spurs - the EPL ones, not the NBA ones. And SB Nation's Mike Prada on why the Wiz and Celtics hate each other.

That's it for today. Drop any questions or concerns to christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk again tomorrow.
