Coke Zero is leading coffee 2 to 1 in best-of-7 series right now as work at my condo
it's not nearly same as playing, but beat reporters go into their own playoff mode as well
conference finals, Cavs over Hawks; Warriors over Spurs. Finals: Cavs over Warriors
picked 2 upsets (via seeds) in first round: Wizards over Raptors; Spurs over Clippers. also have Spurs over Rockets in 2nd round
already up, working on cavs preview stuff
i don't have to be politically basketball correct cuz I don't play. Celtics are ideal team for some Cavs to get feet wet in playoffs
cavs won more games (34) over last 43 games this season than they did all of last season (33)
but if you think you can win title, you should think you will beat anybody
only thing didn't work out great for Cavs is Bulls being 3 seed and being likely 2nd-round opponent
Cavs-Celtics Game 1 Sunday, 3 p.m. at Q. Game 2, Tues, 7 p.m.
For a game that meant nothing, that was a blast ... http://t.co/LoibIKmhnL

The Cavs finished out the 2014-15 season going 34-9. They went 33-49 in 2013-14.
Loved Shawn Marion in his prime, but disagree with Blatt's claim he's a hall of famer
Blatt:You all know Friedrich Nietzsche said, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’. I think we got stronger.
Blatt:. We didn’t have a cakewalk getting to this point. We didn’t have the easiest of seasons, particularly early on
Blatt: I’m happy that our team is coming into this time of year, these playoffs, after having gone through something.
Blatt:I’m still learning and I’m still figuring what the NBA is all about.
All for One India Pale Ale for media in press room
Sign of the modern NBA: Message on the Cavs white board says "Bring your computer/iPad tomorrow if you want Boston edits on it"
Kyrie: "Now we can stop talking about the regular season and gear up for something bigger"
Kyrie: "I'm going to go in there with the same confidence I always have and trusting my teammates"
Kyrie on playoffs: "I'm excited. It's a big-time atmosphere and I've never experienced it"
Shawn Marion's final regular season game of the 1,163 he played: 8 pts, 9 reb as a 36-yr-old & his final play was a steal/breakaway dunk
Can't wait to see Anthony Davis in the postseason. Belongs on the stage. Then again so does Westbrook. Meanwhile Brooklyn might get in...
cavs-celtics winner will play winner of milw-chicago in 2nd round
Cavs close out regular season on a high note: Shawn Marion dunks then gets mobbed by his teammates http://t.co/y4GN7F2LyJ
18 points, career-high-tying 12 assists for Delly
Cavs win 113-108 in OT to close out the regular season 53-29. They won 34 of final 43 games. Playoffs start Sunday vs BOS on ABC.
Brendan Haywood getting the "MVP" chant. Love it!
please split this pair and put it on an odd number
The worst four words you can hear when covering Game No. 82 of 82 with no playoff implications: And we have overtime.
Wizards played a double overtime last night. OT tonight
bulls winning late. would be 3 seed and cavs' likely opponent in 2nd round
Just in from the league: If the Wizards do not attempt a 3 here, $25,000 fine coming for Randy Wittman
Shoot a three, Washington. Please
I'll just say this: The Cavs, as constructed, could not survive OT tonight
this thing had better not go OT!!!!
Haywood last played Feb. 26, 39 seconds vs. Golden State
evan Brendan haywood playing in this one
if cavs hold on, will end season by winning 34 of final 43 games
Shumpert's played 28 minutes tonight, easily the most on the Cavs
Kendrick Perkins warming up for playoffs with a technical
Another amazing moment: Brendan Haywood enters the game.
I can't believe it. Iman Shumpert blew another breakaway dunk. Amazing.
otto porter sprained ankle, will not return
other than sub starter Miller, no Cavs starters have played in second half
Shump made up for that missed dunk on Monday with that one.
Interesting ATL is playing the regulars so much in game against CHI. Wonder if it has anything to do with avoiding TOR, who won series 3-1?
Nothing is wrong with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and JR Smith, I'm told. This was the plan all along.
This is great. LeBron was seated in customers' seats along the baseline, in blazer and sweats. He had to move cuz of paying customers
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are making their way to the bench.
And Kyrie Irving hasn't made it out of the locker room, as well.
Kevin Love and JR Smith have not made it out of the locker room for the second half.
Kyrie, Love, Moz and J.R. start the second half on the bench. Good chance that's all we see of them tonight.
Raptors win. So unless Bulls also win, and they trail by 7 at the half, Toronto would likely be the Cavs second-round matchup.
