NOTE: On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports and I analyzed the depth chart of the Browns. There will be no shows until Friday the 29th. Have a great Memorial Day and thanks for listening.
The Cavs are playing better defense than at any time during the regular season. That part of the game will be fine. The question is will the Cavs continue to attack the basket or settle for jump shots and bad 3 pointers?
If they take good shots and move the ball around they will beat the Hawks. If they take long jumpers and fail to attack the basket, they will go down and go down hard.
It is just that simple. They have to use their heads and not take bad shots. Bad shots lead to defensive rebounds and fast breaks for the opponents. That will lead to losses for the Cavs and an exit from the playoffs. Let’s hope they use their heads.
That is what I think. Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
