I know what you’re all wondering. Sixers fans were wondering the same thing last month. As Rick tweeted, air horns are officially not allowed, but apparently the folks in Milliwalkay are not aware of this.
The Cavs dropped an ugly game 85-92 last night to the surging Bucks. The team was without LeBron, who sat out with an ankle injury because Mike Brown sat him out for reasons completely unrelated to his ankle. In addition to no LeBron, the Cavs were also sans Daniel Gibson and Shaquille O’Neal. Despite the best efforts of Antawn Jamison (30 pts, 11 reb) and Delonte West (27 points), the Cavs couldn’t pull out a win. Largely because the efforts from everyone else on the team were not their best.
Jeff at the BBC at Fear The Sword (what?) breaks down how the rest of the team did:
As for Cavalier players not named Antawn or Delonte, it was a night to forget. The rest of the team combined to go 12-for-40 from the field (30 percent). Mo Williams earned the futility award for the night, shooting just 3-for-17 from the floor (18 percent).
The Bucks got solid efforts all around, getting 25 points from rookie Brandon Jennings and 15 points and 9 boards from Andrew Bogut.
After a frustrating loss such as last night’s, we get to fall into our standard flow chart of emotions:
AS YOU CAN SEE, ALL SIGNS POINT TO PANIC.
The Cavs had great nights from Delonte and Antawn, and that’s a plus. Aside from that, there aren’t really many positives. The Bucks are a playoff team, so it’s not like this happened against the Knicks. Still, it’s not a good loss.
