cavs vs portlandTo understand what went wrong tonight in Portland, all one needs to do is looked at the stat sheet.  I don’t care if you play the best or worst team in the NBA, if you shoot  36% from the field you aren’t going to win many games.  For the second time in three games Lebron James looked uncomfortable in the offense, often seeming unsure where his teammates were supposed to be.  Lebron is a rhythm player, and once again he couldn’t find his shot as the team struggled to execute the offense. For multiple stretches of the game Lebron and Kyrie took turns dribbling for too long and taking their defender one on one which as we learned from the Mike Brown era is not a recipe for success. Growing pains are growing pains and right now we are seeing what that looks like.  Miami went through the same thing in the beginning of their multiple finals runs.  Time will tell if this team can put the puzzle together, and if they do don’t be surprised if you see a playoff ready team looking to make a statement.

    Curious how long do you think it will take them to figure this all out? I know in the offseason, all you need to hear are the names of the players and you think they are all unbelievable individual players. Which is true, but there is SO much more that goes into a great team in any sport. Chemistry is the one missing piece with this team right now. I don’t think it has anything to do with selfishness, or the team concept not sinking in, but the players just need to get more comfortable playing with each other to the point where they know exactly where their teammates will be on offense and defense. I think there will be glimpses of games like the Chicago game where everything seems to be clicking and they look like a finish product. But I also feel like they will take most of this season to figure everything out. I would say around February or March is when you will see a rare game like the 2 we have seen so far, and we will see more consistent great play from the Cavs.
