Cleveland Cavaliers are at their worst of the season. He fell this morning at home against Brookyln Nets (112-117) and added his fourth consecutive defeat. Painful, but logical because of the potential of his rival. Same as the previous ones. The first was against the Boston Celtics, which after a rather alarming start to the season, has picked up a certain competitive pace, while the next two were against these same Nets and Golden State Warriors, two of the great candidates for the ring.

The loss at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse tonight was especially painful. The Cavs tweeted all the Nets until the last two minutes who pulled a huge version of Kevin Durant (27 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists) to defeat an opponent that took him to the limit, who dominated the scoreboard for almost the entire first three quarters and that in the last period, With 3:31 left, he was three up (105-102) thanks to a gigantic Darius Garland: the point guard shot up to 24 points and 11 assists. Durant, with 8 of Brooklyn’s last 15, finally knocked out the Cavaliers.

Nash praises

Cleveland made the Nets sweat. And Steve Nash, the coach of the Big Apple, had no choice but to praise his rival: “It is a very willing and disinterested group”. Garland also got the compliments of one of the great point guards in NBA history: “He’s extremely complete. There is intelligence in the way he plays. “

Locals noted the absence of Evan Mobley. The 3 of the last draft will not return to the courts until December due to a muscle strain in the right elbow. Without him, Lauri Markkanen multiplied and finished with 22 points and Jarrett Allen, with 20 and 15 rebounds. Ricky Rubio, meanwhile, performed well: 16 points, 7 sacks and 5 assists.
