This has been the story of the Cavaliers season. Everyone’s favorite Uncle, Kyrie Irving, went down with a broken finger a little over a week ago. Even with the star point guard, the Cavs were 2-7. After last night’s loss to Phoenix, they’re 3-12 for the season and in last place in the Central. Throughout all this, Anderson Varejao has been spectacular, averaging career-highs of 14.5 points, 1.5 steals, 3.2 assists and an absurd 14.9 rebounds a game (tops in the NBA). To say Varejao has been great and the rest of the team has sucked would be to speak the truth. In a rare moment of coaching candor, Byron Scott spoke the truth.
Good idea, not so much on the execution.
The kicker was flagged on the play.
Pittsburgh will be in the playoffs.
