Cavs Overreactions, 10 Straight Jazz Wins, and the AD Dark Horse

Cavs Overreactions, 10 Straight Jazz Wins, and the AD Dark Horse

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - February 13, 2018 - 1:21:20

On today's show Sharp and Golliver begin with 20 minutes of reactions to the new-look Cavs after LeBron James ruined Paul Pierce's retirement party. Questions include: Are the Cavs fixed now? Will Jordan Clarkson ever miss a three? Is Koby Altman the new Jerry West? And then, beyond the Cavs (20:00), what about the rest of the chaotic East? Then they move briefly to the Denver Nuggets (28:00), before focusing on the Utah side of the Rodney Hood trade (32:00) and the Jazz storming through the West (37:00) with 10 straight wins. From there they move to the Lakers (43:00), including a clairvoyant listener and the one Anthony Davis scenario that might make more sense than Boston. At the end (54:00): Khris Middleton's 2019 market value, Derrick Rose ruins a rainy day, Ben Simmons vs. Donovan Mitchell, and a halfhearted Pierce vs. Carmelo debate.
