what, no one's gonna mention Donyell's stellar play last night?  28 points on 11 of 15 shooting, plus 8 boards!  The bench came through BIG TIME last night, outscoring the Washington bench 57-24.  That's a difference maker...no doubt about it!

On the Flip/Larry debate, Larry's with us long-term.  He's got the contract.  Flip will likely be signed in the off-season by someone with more $$$ to spend on him.  And he deserves it!  I like him off the bench, but when he's on and explosive and Larry's struggling, I sure do think twice about their roles.  However, Larry came up big with 5 steals and 12 assists last night.  Flip did the scoring, but both were critical to the win.

Now Larry Hughes had to leave the team.
Evidently his brother was shot dead last night.  :cry:

He wasn't shot. I heard he had a heart transplant and that he wasn't doing well lately. I am not the biggest Hughes fan, but I really feel for the guy and his entire family.

Where'd you hear that? 

It's too bad that Larry's out indefinitely, but it sounds like the team is looking at it with the right perspective.  There are lots of testimonials and personal thoughts from players and coaches on Cavs.com that speak to the true nature of a team.

A big brother faces loss with inestimable pain

Larry Hughes got the tattoo his senior year in high school while his younger brother, Justin, faced a heart transplant. The choice might seem morbid but the intention was just the opposite.

Hughes chose the Grim Reaper as a reminder that time with his brother was a gift, that life carried no guarantees.

i don't think hughes will be back from his injury to 100% until next year.

slowing it up is a good way to approach the pistons.

I had fun making that. Certainly more than Jack Torrance did in typing his!

BTW, you ever notice in The Shining that each one of those pages with "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" typed on them is different? They must have had a whole secretarial pool typing up all those different pages. They sure didn't photocopy them!

Back to the playoffs... One of these days I'll actually get around to watching them.

so on the radio it sounded like the pistons got homered (note, I am also a homer).

Any "unbiased" input from cavs fans.

Hell, maybe ABC will pick up these games now

good work rasheed!

haha go cavs! i am absolutely sick with the way all of the announcers are explaining how the cavs arent winning but the pistons are losing? if they were the championship team they are supposed to be, then we should be done by now. The fact is that the cavs are not backing down. I dont think the cavs are the best team in the league, im just saying that the media covers this thing like its some sort of fluke. Charles Barkeley has never ever given the cavs credit for ANYTHING. I dont think the cavs are a championship winning team however they deserve a lot of credit for their performances lately.

i am trying to be unbiased but its impossible. I am just pleased with the way the cavs made a stand and are looking great for next season. The washington series showed them how far they have come and the pistons series is telling them how far they have to go.

^ Rasheed already has. When asked about the Cavs winning two games against the Pistons, he replied: "Even the sun shines on a dog's ass once in a while."

Classy guy.

I think his teammates should go to Oakland County Civil Court tomorrow and file a gag order against Rasheed.

it backfired, the cavs got guaransheedoff.   :shoot:  :mrgreen:  :laugh:

nobody got homered. that game was hella tight all the way. how many times did the lead change just in the first half?!?! it was a great great game to watch, regardless of which team you wanted to win or even if neither was your team. best game i have seen of all the playoff games i've watched so far.

could this team replace my fav clev sports memory of all time (the miracle of richfield)? i dk, but this team sure is a tough bunch.

coulda been worse for the pistons if not for the cav turnovers and youthful mistakes. both teams were running like lightening in the first half, but the pistons are prone to looking like a normal team when the game is slowed down like it was later on. like i said above pope -- could be an achilles heel for them if they dont figure that out.

in the meantime, nyahh baybee!
go cavs!

If someone would've told me a week ago that that Cavs would beat the Pistons by playing better defense than them and by winning close games in the 75 to 90 point range, I would've called them crazy.  Or if anyone told me a month ago that we'd be winning playoff games in the 4th quarter, I'd have had the same response.  I'm amazed that we're shutting the Pistons down and getting just enough offense in the final quarter to outpace them. 

Congrats to the Cavs!  It's a great feeling watching these games at the local bars, where everyone gasps and cheers with every shot.

I certainly envy you Cavs fans, with the excitement of the beginning of a new era finally starting to come to fruition...I've been in Cincinnati since 1997, and the only time I've started to feel that was this past fall with the Bengals.  In 1999 the Reds made a run, but that was different - I don't think anyone expected anything from them that year except to make a little noise, and that's all they did.  But the playoffs?  With a great team with the whole future ahead of them, taking its first huge steps?  Last time I really saw that was the Tribe in 1995, and hopefully the Reds this year!

All the best to the Cavs, and envy from down south!

dammit, Rasheed, comments like that will jinx Detroit.

I'm pretty worried right now for the Pistons.
