The Cavs had a one point lead with 26 seconds left and ended up losing by five to the Bulls. The Cavs’ lack of a number one option hurt them down the stretch, as they had no one to trade baskets with Derek Rose (who is an absolute beast).
Coach Scott tried out a new starting five (Mo, Boobie, Parker, Jamison and Varejao) and while things were better (despite the 10-0 head start for the Bulls), the end result remained the same.
I also want to pass along a couple of Cavalier interviews floating around the net. Dime Magazine interviewed former Cavalier Brad Daugherty while HoopsHype interviewed Anderson Varejao. Nothing earth shattering here (though Andy says he “wouldn’t mind” retiring as a Cavalier), but I found both of them interesting nonetheless.
Also, some Cavs fans have turned their eyes to Grizzlies’ O.J. Mayo. He’s had a rough year and he may end up being the odd man out in Memphis. I have no idea what the Grizzlies would want, but he’s the type of guy the Cavs should be targeting (not Iguodala).
