I know why the Cavs can’t always play in the afternoon. There are two many games and people have to work during the week, so there’s no way to really do it. But it’s also really nice when there’s a 3 p.m. Sunday matinee game is nice. The game will be in and out, done by 6 p.m. or so and every post game media session will be done maybe an hour later. That’s enough time to watch, get work done and still get to bed at a reasonable time.
It’s also a great palette cleanser for not having the Browns on this week, ideally with fewer punches.
