Well, the playoffs are upon us and that means hot takes and unlikely scenarios. Obviously, the Cavaliers are always a talking point in the playoffs, with their defence and ability to “flip the switch” being called into question, so the guys decided to bring in some help to help break it all down.
This week, Ben Quagliata and Tim Wray are joined by Chris De Silva of 16 Wins A Ring and Luke Sicari of The Pick and Roll. Together, they discuss the Cleveland Cavaliers’ defensive issues, the ridiculousness of Giannis Antetokounmpo and the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the Boston Celtics, as well as some other lighter-hearted playoff narratives, like the attitudes of David Fizdale towards advanced analytics and the rise of Joe Ingles.
Then, it’s time for ‘Quizketball’ (33:30), the podcast’s new head-to-head trivia segment. As Chris and Luke face-off over 21 questions, follow along to test your NBA knowledge and find out which Cavalier reigns supreme.
