Not going to lie, I'm feeling really nervous about this game. I have faith the C's will play better than they did in Game 3, but it still just feels like Cleveland may win this by 10-15 points at the Q. Road games are never easy. Either way, we're going to have to pull out a full 48-minute effort and can't afford to have large stretches of lackluster play (meaning no scoring and/or unable to stop Cleveland from scoring every trip down). Also, keep driving and quit settling for long 2's every time down. That will put Cleveland's defense on their heels, and it can also help generate open look 3's for us which hopefully we can knock down at a good rate tonight.
Morris HAS to have a better all-around game tonight, both on defense and on offense. Quit settling on iso-shots and keep the ball moving. If Morris has another mediocre game, we're doomed. Would be nice if Scary Terry could become scary again in a road game. Still waiting for that "break out" road game from Terry.
We're also going to have to just suck it up and deal with the refs (Foster). Unfortunately it may mean someone (or multiple players) get in foul trouble early in the game. Can't let that rattle us, and got to start off faster. If we fall behind by double digits early, it'll be a long night again. If Jaylen is allowed to play aggressive and play with confidence like in Games 1 and 2, we got a good shot. May need 20+ points from Tatum tonight too. Hope this team proves me wrong and steals one at the Q!
LETS GO C'S!!
