Cavs are fighting porous defense and NBA history in quest for third straight Finals trip

Elite Womens Connor McDavid Jersey Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue insisted he has some ideas, ways to address what has gone from a concern to a crisis in Cleveland. His team’s defense is just not working anymore, but Lue is holding onto hope that he will be able to unveil some wrinkles when the postseason tips off next month.

We gotta hold back, Lue told reporters. We can’t show our hand because these are some good teams and we don’t want them to be able to adjust to what we do. So, we’ve just got to play our normal defense until we get there and then we’ll see what happens.

Luca Sbisa Youth Jersey It’s a bit of an absurd claim in an NBA in which every team has scouted every X and O their opponents have, down to the way the ball boys squeegee the floor. There are not a whole lot of times that a team pulls something out in the playoffs that makes opposing coaches stare in slack-jawed disbelief.

The Bulls have been maddeningly inconsistent this season, and they’re now on a high, winning four straight including Ws over the Raptors, Celtics and Cavs. The Bulls did not deal Jimmy Butler at the trade deadline, opting for a playoff push over a rebuild, and if the team can sustain its current run, Wade would have to consider sticking around in Chicago as an option. But the team has been frustrating all year for Wade, and if he opts out of the last year of his two-year contract this summer, expect him to investigate other options. One would be those same Nuggets, who nearly convinced Wade to go to Denver last summer and offered him $52 million, more than the $47 million he accepted from the Bulls.
