The first sip
Cavs-Nets yesterday was maybe the most fun and tense Cavs game of the year. Is that crazy to say?
It felt like it had stakes. It was back and forth. It saw both teams go ahead and land punches and then have to withstand shots coming back the other way. It saw high level shot making on both sides. It had high-level defensive play, particularly on the Cavs’ side. As far as regular season games go, this really had it all.
Is there a Cavs game that had more of this? I can’t really think of one. If there is, tell me below.
At Basketball News, Jackson Frank on the monster year Joel Embiid is having. Personally, I think the 76ers would be the most fascinating Cavs playoff matchup at least as I’m thinking about it right now.
