Cavs Links

Larry Nance Jr. learned that he is a A-/A for Pickpocket Rating & Passing Lane Defense Rating.

Former Cav Jeff Green went 6-of-9 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line for 17 points over 31 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Spurs.

Non-Cavs Links

Will Barton (right knee soreness) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Clippers. Michael Porter Jr. only continues to grow in power.

Devin Booker scores 35 as the Suns are now 7-0 in bubble play.

The Columbus Blue Jackets went into five overtime periods against the Tampa Bay Lightning and lost 3-2. Thankfully Wednesday is a rest day.

Damian Lillard drops a staggering 61 points, leads the Trail Blazers over the Mavericks.

Today’s Tankathon Sim

In today’s simulation, we see a highly likely scenario where the Cavaliers drop to fifth overall. The surprise here is the Phoenix Suns surge all the way up to fourth. In order Detroit takes LaMelo Ball, Atlanta selects Anthony Edwards, Golden State drafts James Wiseman, and the Suns take Obi Toppin, just to prove they still don’t know how to surround Devin Booker with talent. At fifth overall the Cavaliers take Devin Vassell and never look back.
