Anything Seems Possible!!!!!!

Cavaliers home record last season: 39-2

Cavaliers home record this season: 0-1

Today was all bad news or business news. Big Baby, staring ahead at a promising season, broke a bone in his hand during a stupid fight over something stupid his (probably drunk) friend said about his girlfriend. The rest of the C’s news concerned the unpleasant financial reality that may hover Rajon Rondo all season long, even if it is very unlikely he signs anywhere else. 

But then the C’s put on those bright white uniforms, laced up the shoes and took it to the Cavs in Cleveland, and everything feels better. Doesn’t it? It won’t feel like this all season long. We’ll have losing streaks and nagging injuries, Rondo’s jumper will be inconsistent, Tony Allen will be infuriating and Paul Pierce and Ray Allen will play too many minutes (38 and 42 tonight, respectively, with a game looming tomorrow). 

But right now? We’re 1-0. KG looked good. Good enough that the team ran the majority of their late-game offense in part through him, mostly via screen/rolls with Pierce on the left side of the floor. The play achieved devastating results—good looks for KG in the post, open foul-line jumpers for Pierce and a couple of good looks from deep for Sheed when his man drifted down to help on Truth. 

Other quick thoughts before Brian Robb gives you his detailed recap:

• Perk is going to take that baseline J this year, apparently. He was 2-of-5 tonight, but one of those misses was halfway down and the shot generally looked smooth. He’s lighter and quicker, and yet his defense on Shaq was strong. His inside-out passes were crisp. Get ready for a nice year from Perk.

• There were spans of this game where Rondo was the best player on the floor. Period. He looked confident and completely in control with the ball. Ten assists to just two turnovers and a slew of big deflections, takeaways and offensive boards or near-offensive boards. Spectacular. 

• Shaq was decent but far from dominant. 

• Daniels and Sheed will fit well here. Sheed looks a bit slow moving around on defense, but he’ll (hopefully) work the kinks out as the season goes on. Daniels provides a slashing dimension the team just didn’t have on the second unit last season. 

• Early in the game, David Thorpe said during our mega-ESPN chat that KG looked as if he were moving at about 70 percent of his peak agility. I thought KG looked better as the game went along. 

That’s it for now. More from Brian later.

Welcome back, NBA.

    celtics seemed great!, our defense was working after that first quarter mishap, KG looked nice. Daniels was a nice surprise in the second quarter and on. The fact that Big Baby wasn't playing and eddie house didn't explode is a good sign. We're gonna be just fine this season.

    I think Sheed was getting off his feet well on his jump shot which was a great sign. Who had Garnett first in the office technical foul pool…….WTF?

    "Daniels was a nice surprise in the second quarter"….absolutely, couldn't agree more. He made a sick steal on Lebron to finish the quarter. Maybe he's going to be the C's version of Artest but w/out the attitude.

    Sheed/Daniels were GREAT. I think Sheed changed the game for us.

    We missed too many easy shots/dunks. It doesn't help Lebron can outrun everyone.

    I am concerned about the smaller Perk as Shaq can just move him at will. If Mike Brown ever realizes we can't stop Shaq, we will be in big trouble. PLEASE DANNY, CAN WE GET MIKE SWEETNEY TO AT LEAST BODY UP WITH SHAQ!!! We don't have to play him in any games, we just need him to play Shaq.

    We still don't have anyone who can guard Lebron other than Pierce. Daniels is not the answer. I doubt JR or Walker are the answers

    Just a note on Sweetney because everyone seems to want him so badly for some reason: C's can't him unless they waive someone, i.e. eat some $$ for nothing. And then pay Big Sweets twice, due to luxury tax.

    I understand about the roster space, but there must be someone we can dump to another team that has the salary cap to take on. They can then buy them out and save themselves money too. Of course we need Chris Wallace to help us…
