What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
The #Cavs won tonight because they had a hot shooting night. They also won because Evan Mobley continues his uptick and Caris LeVert looked much more comfortable in his role coming off the bench. thelandondemand.com/news/2022/nov/…12:09 AM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Only 2 fast break points for Houston tonight compared to 21 for Denver. Just not able to generate many stops and get out and run. 106-79 with 9 minutes to go in this one. Rockets on their way to 5-16 — Suns, Warriors and 76ers up next. – 10:54 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Josh Giddey on his 14 rebounds: “I was trying to help the bigs. I’ve always loved rebounding as a big guy.”
Giddey had his 7th double double, tied with Evan Mobley for most among NBA sophomores. – 10:48 PM

Whew… that was ugly.
Grizzlies finish with season high in turnovers and miss 12 free throws in 109-101 loss to Timberwolves. Back home Friday against the 76ers.
Memphis is 12-9

Sixers get blown out in Cleveland, 113-85. They went over a month without a horrible performance, but that is what this was. Cavs were on fire (and the Sixers were not), but Cleveland carved up the Sixers defense. Cavs shot 61 percent from the field.
The Sixers are 12-10. – 9:15 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
What a dominant win for the #Cavs, as they beat the Sixers 113-85. Shots were falling tonight, and they were solid defensively.
Caris LeVert: 22 pts, 4 assists, 6 rebounds
Darius Garland: 21 pts, 9 assists
Donovan Mitchell: 18 pts, 6 assists
Evan Mobley: 16 pts, 8 rebounds – 9:14 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
#Cavs win 113-85. Probably their most complete performance of the season on both ends of the floor. Just throttled Philly. Evan Mobley was awesome and the Cavs shot lights out.
They’re 14-8, third place in the Eastern Conference. – 9:14 PM
Bob Finnan @BobCavsinsider
Final at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse: Cavs 113, Philadelphia 76ers 85. Cavs now 9-1 at home. Caris LeVert led all scorers with 22 points. – 9:13 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
FINAL: Cavs 113, Sixers 85. Sixers have played some inspired basketball while shorthanded, but that was an absolute dud. Cavs hovered around 70 percent from the floor for much of the game. Embiid with 19 points on 6-of-16 shooting, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Milton with 14. – 9:13 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
The Raptors haven’t played many games as the ‘healthier team’ recently. That’s the case tonight but you wouldn’t know if from this defensive effort.
2 nights ago, they held Cleveland to 88 pts on 38% FG. NOLA just dropped 73 pts (64% FG) on them… in the 1st half. Pels by 26. – 9:05 PM

Holiday has been a pleasure to watch since he arrived in the league with 76ers in 2009. With all due respect to Chris Paul, had the Suns been able to get Holiday from New Orleans (he was targeted) they’d be working on a third title. – 9:00 PM

New two-way guard Saben Lee is at the scorer’s table for the Sixers, which is about as much emptying of the bench as Doc Rivers can do tonight with Harrell already in the game. – 9:00 PM

Cavs 90, Sixers 66 at the end of the third. Sixers cut into what was a 32-point lead a tad, but still a steep climb in 12 minutes. Embiid has 19 points on 6-of-16 shooting, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. – 8:48 PM
Bob Finnan @BobCavsinsider
End third Q: Cavs 90, Sixers 66. Donovan Mitchell leads the way with 18 points, Darius Garland has 17 points and Evan Mobley and Caris LeVert with 16. – 8:48 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Don’t think you need to see Embiid the rest of the night. – 8:48 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
#Cavs lead Philly 90-66 after 3 quarters. They were up by as many as 32 but cooled off a bit to end the period. Mobley, Mitchell, Garland, and LeVert all have between 16 and 18 points, with Mitchell leading the way. Embiid has 19 points on 16 shots for the Sixers. – 8:47 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
It’s bad that Doc has Joel out here and it’s also bad that Joel is diving with *Robin Lopez* for loose balls getting his feet tangled down 25. This team needs a common sense Czar asap. – 8:43 PM

#Cavs Lamar Stevens, who hasn’t been around the team at all the last couple days while being out with an illness, just emerged from the locker room and joined his teammates on the bench. Stevens has been feeling better and his return is close. – 8:25 PM

Tough night so far for Tobias Harris, who had been so consistently good the past week or so. He’s 0-of-6 from the floor. – 8:22 PM

The Cavaliers shot 16-17 from the floor in the 2nd quarters (94%!!!!) 44 points is the second-highest scoring 2nd quarter in franchise history. #LetEmKnow8:08 PM

At the end of the first half, #Cavs hold a 21-point lead over the Sixers, 69-48.
Evan Mobley: 16 pts, 6 rebounds, 3 assists
Caris LeVert: 13 pts
Donovan Mitchell: 12 pts, 5 assists
Darius Garland: 7 pts, 7 assists – 8:07 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
The Sixers just surrendered 16 of 17 shooting in the second quarter to Cleveland. Some bad defense, particularly in transition, but also incredible shotmaking.
They’ve been fortunate with opponent 3-point shooting all year, but this is some incredible regression to the mean. – 8:07 PM

That 2nd Q was miserable for Philadelphia. The Cavs shot 16/17 in that quarter and they scored 44 points as they build a 69-48 halftime lead. Cleveland has 12 fast break points. #Sixers8:06 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Cavs 69, Sixers 48. Cleveland made 27 of 37 shot attempts, including 8-of-12 from deep. Mobley’s got 16 on 8-of-10 shooting, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Embiid has 10-5-4 but is 3-of-8 from the floor. – 8:06 PM
Bob Finnan @BobCavsinsider
Cavs destroying Sixers 69-48 at halftime. Cavs shooting 73 percent from field, 67 percent from 3-point line. Mobley has outscored Embiid 16-10 – 8:06 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Any possession for the #Cavs defensively that ends in anyone not named Joel Embiid taking a contested shot for the Sixers is a huge win for them. – 8:04 PM

The Cavs are not guarding P.J. Tucker and Matisse Thybulle to an absurd degree, which is a good strategy.
But they keep clapping loudly as an entire team when they get (obvious) defensive 3-second calls, lol. Kinda weird? – 8:00 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Those were some very productive minutes from #Cavs Isaac Okoro. I think the best role for him on this contending team is lowish-minute energy guy off the bench. Between 15-20 every night. Two quick bursts in each half. Then it can be matchup-specific in late-game moments. – 7:58 PM

Someone made Embiid mad. He’s picking up steam as game wears on. He’s only 3-for-8 from field for 8 points. Cavs up 60-43. – 7:56 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
The #Cavs are up 19 and Robin Lopez just attempted a no-look behind the head pass to Caris LeVert.
Vibes are good tonight. – 7:54 PM

Okoro running through Embiid screens is a football caliber collision. – 7:52 PM

Joel Embiid furious with no-call. Gets technical foul. Cavs up 52-35. – 7:52 PM

Tucker with 6 points on 2-for-4 shooting – all threes. … Embiid just fell to the court for the third time this half. – 7:50 PM

We all know Evan Mobley is long and athletic, but I still marvel at it whenever I see him in person. He’s already got 13 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists midway through the second, and Cavs lead 47-32. – 7:46 PM

Evan Mobley has been a freaking monster tonight on both ends. – 7:45 PM

So … getting Caris LeVert out in transition and semi transition is certainly one way to help get him going on offense. – 7:42 PM

Caris LeVert off to a great start tonight. He’s got a team-high 9 points on 4-of-4 shooting. – 7:41 PM

That was very much a share-the-wealth first quarter for #Cavs against Philly. Seven of the eight guys who played in the quarter made at least one shot. Evan Mobley led the way with 6 points on 3 of 4 shooting. One of those buckets was a coast-to-coast Euro around Embiid. – 7:37 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
At the end of the first, #Cavs lead the Sixers 25-21. Cavs shot 11 of 20 (55%) from the field and 3 of 7 (42.9%) from 3. They have 8 assists on 11 made shots.
Evan Mobley is everywhere tonight. He has 6 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block.
Darius Garland has 5 assists. – 7:36 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Cavs lead 25-21 after one quarter. Sixers shooting 8-18 and have five turnovers. Embiid, Melton and Reed lead them with four points. – 7:36 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
#Cavs leading the Sixers 25-21 after the first quarter. Thought Cleveland did a great job defensively of knowing when to send help towards Embiid and scrambling away from it. They’re content to let PJ Tucker shoot, and he’s 1-of-3. – 7:35 PM

There are times the easier play is probably to shoot, but I’m digging how much of a playmaker Embiid is trying to be with some of these units.
