Cavs in a deep hole

The Cavaliers lost 97-91 Tuesday night in Detroit but Game 2 wasn’t nearly as close as the score would indicate. The Cavs were mostly limited to jump shots in the first half and committed several careless turnovers as they fell behind early. The Cavaliers made a small run in the fourth quarter to close the gap but the damage was already done. The Pistons used a 13-0 run in the first quarter and part of the second to jump ahead on the Cavaliers. Detroit only managed six bench points but all of their starters finished in double figures, with Rasheed Wallace leading with 30. LeBron scored 23 of his 30 in the second half but the Cavs failed once again to solve the Pistons and fall behind 2-0 in the series.

The Cavs look scared in this series. It’s almost like they know they can’t beat the Pistons and they’re not coming in with any confidence at all. In my opinion, that reflects back on Mike Brown. Yeah, you’re facing the number one seed who won over 60 games this season, but this team is not making any adjustments to stop the basketball machine that is the Detroit Pistons. Brown is a rookie coach and is showing it in the playoffs. Sure, we’ll go back to the Q and perhaps win one game which will give us a glimmer of hope but we all know the series is pretty much over.
