Cleveland may have expected a tough time in Dallas but the blow out that occurred there was of epic proportions. The road continues to be a major hang up for this team. Inconsistent performances, high turnovers and poor shooting percentages plague this team in any arena not named Gund. It’s increasingly difficult to gauge this team. Unlike consistent teams where certain performances or games can be expected, you simply cannot take anything for granted with this team. Trying to predict wins or big performances is simply unscientific, a blind and foolish guess. After major loses, teams either respond with pride or lay down to die. The Hornets will be game with JR scoring, PJ Brown down low (who could give Drew fits) and Magloire in the middle. With Z fading as of late, Jamal is ready to do damage.
The Dallas nightmare left several members on the team with empty, distant stares. No matter what happens, this team cannot lose hope; or belief of self.
