Cavs Game 1 Live Blog

Quarter 1:

-This is definitely the worst broadcast that I've ever seen for a professional sport on any network.It feels like I'm riding in Spencer's car on a given Saturday night: Smoky. On top of that it's the worst played game that I've seen played in a long ass time.

-Two quick fouls for PP. He better be careful some guy in Cleveland (Spencer) doesn't try and stab him in an elevator.

-Boston is making the Cavs terrible start look not as bad, or is it just Wally?

-How many times are we going to see a commerical for the movie "What Happens in Vegas"? You know it's going to be at least 1 per commercial break. I just hope TNT minimizes those stupid in game trailers they run for movies that incorporate the NBA Playoffs.

-I hope Charles Barkley says the words "trbl" at halftime.

-Gibson finally hits a jump shot for the Cavs with about a minute left in the first quarter. Great start.

-I hate Boston, not as much as I hate San Antionio , but i still hate Boston. Wait, let me restate that. I hate the fans of Boston sports. I think their sports teams are pretty decent. I mean I don't really like any teams who aren't from Cleveland, but I can say I don't dislike them. The fans just are one and the same. Cry babies. I hate the Spurs. I have no real reason for such feelings. I just don't like them.

-Posey nailed a fade away three as time expires or so. It was a crazy shot. He just threw it up falling away and it was a pure tickle party baby. Posey sucks too. Do you think he's got the potiental to become the next Robert Horry? He got a ring on that fluke Miami team in the series known as the one the Mavs choked away. Not the one that Miami won... If Boston can turn themselves into a team with regular success, then maybe.

Quarter 2:

-The Cavs are still ice cold. Mike Brown was just interviewed by Reggie Miller's brother and he said he thought Wally took some good jump shots. Yea, I'd have to agree with him if those shots were not taken with 20 seconds left on the shot clock.

-Random Cavs fact: Mike Brown has 13 different pairs of the same glasses. All in different colors. Each color to match his suits. Now I can say you learned something today.

-Sam Cassell is still alive? Apparently, because he just threw a tickle party at the top of the arch.

-Hey Sasha had a nice slash to the basket. That could help spark some offense.

-Delonte looks shaken up. Someone on the C's just tried to cheat, go figure... He tried to knock the ball back through the tin. Then a questionable call on a Boobie steal. Then a terrible makeup call on a travel called on the big Lithuanian.

-...And another D Wade and Charles Barkley commercial. I bet T Mobile is ecstatic about D Wade being on the worst team in the leauge. That's money well spend.

-The Cavs are shooting 27% as Z is called for steps again.

-This is seriously one of the worst games that I've ever seen. And remember that I used to run a site for CYO basketball. I've seen some pretty awful 4th grade girls games. This one is up there with the best of 'em.

-Update: Sam Cassell is stil alive. He was just called for an old person foul.

-I don't understand why PJ Brown is playing. Don't they have someone they feel a little bit more confident about his abilities, like Big Baby.

-Blocking foul ont eh C's and the fans boo. Hey wakeup it a legit foul. He needs to be set. And PJ initiated the contact. Chill folks.

-Update: Sam Cassell is still alive and without his ace bandage to wrap around his abdomen.

-Another "What Happens in Vegas" add.

-Flagrant 1 foul on Sam Cassell. Eh, whatever.

-Ben Wallace cannot do shit vs Garnett.

-Big bucket by Wally. Only because its his first of the game after taking 15 shots.

-Joe Smith is playing well overall.

-Wally hits another. Wow. 2 point deficit and the worst coach in the NBA calls a TO.

-PP finally scored, but Wally's still got the green light. Ever hear of the holster? Me either.

-If the C's continue to get the fast break opportunities the Cavs are through. A good fast break is basically indefensible for any team. If you run a good fast break offense and play good team D, you're going to be a pretty tough team to beat.

-You know for having the best record in the leauge, the C's aren't impressing me at all. They have the Cavs shooting like 29% and they are only up 5 with 2 min left in the 2nd quarter. And on top of that, Lebron has one field goal.

-Wally just took it to the chops of either KG or Perking someone else on the C's. I couldn't make out who it was because the broadcast is so foggy.

-I don't understand why Chris Webber is a commentator for TNT. If the general public needs any advise on calling time outs, when the game is on the line, and you know NOT HAVING ANY. Then this move will pay off immensely.

-As a big man I would love poor foul shooters. You basically know that if this guy get to the line then I'm padding my stats with an easy board. I don't mean anything against Ben Wallace, but he did just grab a board off a missed free throw.

-Ben Wallace hit a nice fall away jumper. I repeat: Ben Wallace just hit a nice fall away jumper. I'm still not convinced it just happened, but none the less I'll take the 2 points. Maybe he got the message.

-I think Mike Fratello is awesome. I think he needs to be the next coach of the Pheonix Suns. Just because.

-LBJ had a great pass to Z for a nice strong finish.

-Bad foul from LBJ. Rondo to thie line with 00.2 left on the clock. Fucking zebra's. Always tryin to rain on a parade.

-Halftime. Reggie Miller's brother would crush Rajon Rondo. Rondo sounds like a 7th grade boy. He looks like one too. Not trying to be a dick there. He just looks young.

Cavs 37
Celtics 41

Quarter 3:

-I need to get Mike Fratello's rug guy. That thing looks real. That dude deserves an award.

-The C's are off to a hot start. The Cavs aren't

-I want to see some good basketball soon. I'm almost at the point where I don't care which team accomplishes this. Just so someone does it sometime.

-Lebron is 1-7 and the Cavs are down 3.

-Make down 1. After a sting of turn overs by both teams Delonte pick Ray Ray's pocket on a drive and went coast to coast.

-Lebron is still off.

-Z is actually playing well for the Cavs and is at the line to try to take the lead.

-Z hits both and the Cavs have their first lead in a long time.

-Doc Rivers should take a 20, but he won't because he isn't a good coach.

-Z hits an 18 footer and Doc finally calls that TO. They are now down 3 after being up by as much as 12 to a team that is shooting below 30% from the field. That's not very flattering for the team with the best record in the league.

-Another "What Happens in Vegas" commercial. I'm sure Ashton Kutcher is a big NBA fan. Doesn't he look like Kyle Korver? I wonder if Kutcher has as slick of a jumper.

-KG is having a great game so far. 20 points and 6 boards.

-Educational stat of the day: Lebron James has more playoff victories in his career than the careers of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett individually.

-The C's are killing themselves and really helping the Cavs out a ton. Thanks. I'll send you a fruit basket or something.

-1-10 from LBJ won't get it done.

-Wally hit a BIG 3 to add to the lead. This is just playing into the hands of the brilliant Mike Brown. I don't know how the guy does it, but he does it.

-Kendrick is doing a great impersonation of Bobby Knight's game face speech, by giving his best one.

-That was LBJ's 8th Goddamn turnover. As PP finally scored again. 4 points for PP and the 7th of the quarter for the C's.

-TO Cavs

-Hey speaking of cheaters, the Indians are beating the Yankees 5-3 in the home half of the 8th. Make that the top of the 9th

-24 second violation on the Cavs. Wally looked like he had about 38 seconds left onthe shot clock for a second there.

-PP flopped, but it was called a charge. Everytime there is contact with LBJ you could argue its a charge. He's just too powerful. For a charge to be called the defensive player needs to be set. If your body is still moving (ie PP's tubby belly flopping) while contact is made, it's a foul on the defender. Lebron to the bench with 4 fouls.

-Andy took an offensive foul and thats 3 on PP. PP was out of control and lost possession of the ball before he went into the air.

-Kendrick Perkins had made a couple of buckets so here and the C's tied it up at 52.

-More slop. Gross. Take care of the ball.

-Sam Cassell is running in slow motion. I didn't think that was possible. Even Wilson doesn't do that. He does waddle though.

-Where has Devin Brown been this game? I don't see him as a match up liability in this series. Why has he seen 0 time.

-End of 3

Cavs 52
Celtics 53

Quarter 4:

-Seriously, is this a 9th grade AAU game? 52-53 after 3? In the NBA? Weaksauce.

-What? Yea, that's right. I said it KG. Wanna fight about it? Well stick your head up my ass and fight for air.

-Another great start to the quarter. 11:12 left and no one has scored yet.

-Big answer from Sasha to a 3 from Posey.

-They are calling it a little ticky tack for PP now that Lebron is out. That was pretty decent D from Sasha.

-Z is having a great game so far. Feel the big horse Mike. FEED HIM.

-Nice steal form Sasha, full court to the hole, and 1. Pretty. Sasha has the necessary tools to become a great role player and a sold NBA performer as he completes the and 1.

-KG still has it workin.

-Cassell is getting me back for calling him old. He just went deep for skittles again.

-I got to see the C's play at the Q earlier this year. It was the game the Cavs won with PP puking on the sidelines. I think he was scared of getting stabbed again... cough could Spencer cough cough.

-Jesus. The Cavs are making so many JV mistakes. Offensive boards into turnovers.

-That was a major ticky tack foul on Z for a reach in and pouring salt on an open wound is Sam Cassell's old ass. Another jumper.

-Wally nails another 3. Wow. Signs of life. Lebron is still 1-10 or 1-11.

-That Wendy's Chicken Go Wraps shit looks way too big in the commercial. I bet they are tiny in actuality. Just some "creative" advertising by some real "creative" people.

-Another commercial for "What Happens in Vegas". But still no in game trailer, so I guess it could be worse. That's like getting excited to only pay $3.45/gallon for gas. Because that was me this morning. $50 for a little more than half a tank of gas. Sweet. I don't care who does it, but someone fix it.

-The Cavs are really fighting out there to keep this game close and to try to pull it out.

-24 second violation on the C's.

-PP's back in. Get scurrrrred bitches.

-10 turnovers for LBJ. Not to change the subject, but how does KG get more MVP votes than Lebron James? All biases aside, that is just wrong.

-Tell me if this is not the worst car commercial ever. Is he selling cars or sex with kids?

-Garnett just traveled by falling over his own feet, but it wasn't called. Come on stripes. Nice pancake action tho from Z.


-After that replay, it looked like it went of Perkin's goofy hands, but with 1 second left on the shot clock and its Beantown ball I won't complain.

-24 second shot clock violation on Boston.

-Big shot from Z to put the Cavs up 2. 1:30 left in the game. Boo Ya.

-Garnett witht eh answer.

-Cassell is feisty for a senior citizen. He's going for Z just because he was knocked in the head. Pussy. He's hit the 2 free throws for the foul.

-Big follow from Z. He is really playing his ass off today. Z is the man.

-KG has a great taken vs Joe Smith to go up 2 with 21.4 left in the game. Cavs ball. Let's see what happens here. My guess: Cavs stall and then use their last time out with 9 seconds left to see what Boston comes out in and then draw up a quick hitter to tie the game and force OT.

-Lebron misses the layup and Posey gets the rebound and gets fouled. He's on the line for 2 to go up 4 with 8.5 seconds left. He made the first. He made the second.

-Well Mike Brown and I don't subscribe to the same school of thought with the final seconds of the game. I still would have at least tried to post up Z. Its not like he has been hot or anything.

-C's win a bad one.
