We live in a world where Joshua Smith has produced a double-double in consecutive games. 16 points & 10 boards. Really pursuing rebounds,
The Grind mode never stop...
"Who you grinding for?"
We were denied Josh Smith open court dunking and possibly bringing down the basket because some RMU defender hustled back. Weak.
Hopkins block on one end led to a Hopkins FB layup on the other. 12-5 spurt opening 2H for 48-29 lead. Strong ball movement.
That Welbeck back-foot tap was the equivalent of a 30-foot contested Kobe heat check three
Prediction: United gets a dumb goal in the next five min, both teams flub chances thru second half until a dumb Arsenal goal in final 5 min
Manchester United outchea defending like the Cavs
Sick move by LJP attacking the rim from the baseline for a layup. DSR tacks on a 3 and Hoyas have largest lead at 32-20.
Tre Campbell does not lack offensive confidence.
TV watchers: Did they call flagrant on Hopkins? Tech?
First 4 subs for Hoyas: White, lil Tre, Copeland, Cameron.
I'm always surprised more teams don't play zone more often vs. Hoyas. Robert Morris doing so today - but GU draining 3's. 3-5 early.
Hoyas 9-4 at U16. Josh Smith showing early with 4 pts, 2 reb. He has a size advantage. Shocker, I know.
Things I'm watching today: Can Joshua Smith show aggresion in b2b games? DSR find his shot/comfort level at PG? Rotation entering Atlantis?
About to tip at Verizon Center. Hoyas-Robert Morris. Same starting 5 for the locals. Five players will also start for the Colonials.
Just met Arinze Onuaku at DCA. He’s off to Ohio to join the the D-League’s Canton Charge.
During the Bulls reign, MJ would bail his team out of games like this by going for 40+ pts. Maybe Beal or Pierce can do that tonight
The Wizards are ripe for an upset tonight. They're high off the Cavs win and the Bucks are feeling low after the blowout loss to the Raptors
Prayers up !!
LeBron, what's up with the lack of energy? "That's something I cannot explain right now. ...Losing doesn't help, it saps the energy away."
LeBron James is quoting MLK after 11 games. RG3 was quoting Churchill after seven games. Panic edge goes to the local.
Great win tonight!
Tonight’s theme from David Blatt: “We’re in the dark right now.” Repeated that phrase multiple times.
Cavs coach David Blatt: "Obviously right now we're struggling. We're a little bit in the dark and we have to find our way out."
The next Ted's Take is going to be Wall-tastic. Hey, ball don't lie.
Not scientific, but I think the Wizards have said 10 times as many words to each other than the Cavs have.
Bradley Beal drilled the 3 right in Dion Waiters's mug & glared at him - twice - like, "The best backcourt in the league is who again?"
Rough night for Kevin Love when he wasn't close to being the best Kevin on the floor
Cavs season-low is 82 points. Low for Wiz opponent is 83. Cavs have 75 with 2:57 left and trailing by 11.
LeBron pump-faking with a head of steam and then failing to power through Kevin Seraphin is a strange sight.
It might be time to cool off on comparing this Cavs team to MIA in 2010. Different personnel, different purpose & more pronounced flaws
20,356 at the phone booth 1st sellout of the season.
Cavs trying to snake layups and Kevin Seraphin is saying not in my maison!!
Forgive us Wizards fans, Kevin Seraphin, for we have sinned.
LeBron James was one-on-one with Kevin Seraphin &...pulled up for a fallaway?
In Shawn Marion's defense, Randy Wittman was WIDE open...
Also would be first time LeBron has lost 3 in a row since NBA Finals. LBJ doing work (19-4-4), just not getting much help from anyone tall.
Cavs would fall to 5-6 with loss. Worst starting record for a LeBron team since 2007-08 Cavs started 5-6.
DAMON JONES WILL NOT SAVE YOU FROM JOHN WALL
That 3rdQ was John Wall basically telling the basketball world, "Give me my 'spect."
John Wall dominates the 3Q with 17 of his 28 points. Wizards 80-65.
John Wall's Wings & Burgers is cookin' tonight
32.5 minutes into the game, Dion Waiters and the Cavaliers bench have their first 2 points.
Wall sinks J, 72-56. Largest lead. The Wall-Star is having all kinds of fun. Certainly more than Kevin Love.
Again: no weakside movement in Cleveland's sets. They only cut on double-teams. Not before
John Wall loves being on this stage...
Beal still in the game. Looks like he's holding his hand.
Beal takes the charge from Love. Tough. Gets up holding left wrist, however.
I want to do something as well as Varejao flops.
Terrible charge call. Varejao inside arc. Wittman argues, gets tech.
