Semifinal Game 2 Nuts n Bolts May 9, 2007

Cleveland Cavaliers' Sasha Pavlovic (3), from Montenegro, dunks against the New Jersey Nets during the first quarter of a second round NBA playoff basketball game Tuesday, May 8, 2007, in Cleveland.

TZ: Valid point, absolutely. If you look at the numbers, Jefferson has actually been more efficient (36 fewer points, but 41 fewer shots) in roughly the same amount of floor time in this postseason, and he’s shooting 95 percent from the line (36-for-38) to Vince’s 69 percent (35-for-51). So it would be beneficial to give the offense more balance, and I think they’ll try to get RJ going early tonight. The one thing that ultimately tips it for L-Frank, though, is this: Jefferson is making only the obvious pass nowadays, so you can understand that meager APG he has going right now (2.1); Vince is a little more imaginative, especially in pick-and-rolls, he’s more aggressive, and therefore he has a better shot at catching a defense in rotation. But both have been getting better about lowering their heads and driving it when they absolutely have to get a whistle. They just have to do it in the first two quarters, not only the last two, even if RJ knows he is out of control with those early charging fouls.

Dave D’Alessandro suggests that Richard Jefferson would be better as the first scoring option. What i think is, Rj should really be the first option, but since Vince could get hot anytime, once he starts to make a couple of shots, the offense should switch to him.

Cavs’ cheerleaders cavort with Richard Jefferson
I am uncomfortable with them cavorting with the other team and think it’s unprofessional. Thank you very much.

Frank: Nets barely had a shot
Lawrence Frank: “If we’re going to start the game giving them 20 extra possessions, it’s going to be very, very hard for us,”
