    Now that's reading between the lines. Makes enough sense for me.

    Who knows how it will unfold, but the Cavs are a hot mess... especially on defense. 118 ppg since Thomas joined the team. Their two lowest defensive outputs came against Boston and Indiana, giving up 97 and 102 points, respectively... Thomas didn't play those two games. I am still betting on them making it, but doing it as a 4 or 5 seed may be the way they are going to have to do it.

    My theory is they are crossing their fingers something happens to Golden State and Houston makes it to the Finals. We know from there CP3 and Harden will fold.

    From Wojo:

    The Cleveland Cavaliers held an emotional team meeting prior to Monday’s practice, where several players challenged the legitimacy of Kevin Love leaving OKC loss on Saturday ill and missing Sunday’s practice, league sources tell ESPN.

    What a train wreck. Is this the start of the scheme to dump Love?

    Timberwolves hit 31 wins last night. Why is this significant?

    - It matches last year win total
    - Second win in a row without Butler and Crawford who are nursing injuries
    - It forces Thibs to give minutes to reserves
    - These west coast swings get me. Staying up passed midnight to catch games is brutal
