Love: 'Practice time would be great for us' |
Cavs players say they need more practice time -- After falling last night in Portland to the Trail Blazers, the Cleveland Cavaliers have lost two in a row -- just their second losing streak of the season. Cleveland lost three in a row shortly after Thanksgiving, but righted the ship and was rolling until this recent slump, which players are attributing to a lack of practice time. ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin has more:
The Blazers loss marked two weeks to the day since Cleveland's last practice on Dec. 28. Since then, the Cavaliers have been upended by a series of events -- a hamstring injury for Kyrie Irving, food poisoning for Kevin Love, a roster-shuffling trade to acquire Kyle Korver and a wild travel day to get to Portland -- that has left the team pining for a sharpening session on the practice court.

It was actually a good call if you know anything about football.
1. Contrary to what everyone thinks, Lynch had trouble on the goal line that season. This seems weird because he was possibly the best RB at the time. The reason he struggled was because Seattle's offensive line sucked. Handing the ball off would be putting faith in a shitty line, not the NFL's top RB. For those of you who think a dive up the 2 would have been a surefire touchdown, I suggest you reconsider.
2. Had they run it on 2nd and gotten stopped they would have been forced to call their last time out. On 3rd they would have had to throw so NE would be more prepared to cover the pass.
Instead they pass on second (which NE wasn't expecting), leaving the option to run or pass on third.
3. A pick play hadn't been intercepted all season so there was no appearant risk in throwing.
Also, if you watch Wilson, Lockette and Kearse, all 3 of them don't execute on that play. Bad location by Wilson, Lockette couldn't get through Browner to set the pick and Kearse didn't run his route very hard.
