The Cleveland Cavaliers took the best team in the Association, the Phoenix Suns, into an overtime battle, finally running out of gas at the end 134-118. The Cavs were greatly undermanned with only a seven man rotation, but that didn’t stop Isaac “Ice” Okoro, who went toe-to-toe with one of the brightest young stars in the NBA, Devin Booker. Ice turned in a career performance tonight with 32 points on only 16 shots and six assists, while chipping three rebounds AND taking on the defensive assignment of Devin Booker.
Nate “the Podcap Shaman” Smith shepherded first time (ever!) podcast guest Chris Francis into a deep dive on all things Cavaliers, covering all aspects of one of the more entertaining games of the year in a manner that would hopefully make the late great Cavs legend Joe Tait proud. They pay tribute to the man they call “Ice,” Nate allows Chris to nerd out on all the obscure stats, and they cover recent Cavs’ news regarding Anderson “Wild Thing” Varejao’s return, Love’s buyout/trade prospects, and a status report on sometimes controversial Cavs’ figures, Collin Sexton and JB Bickerstaff (#FREEBUCK shoutout to EG!). And of course, it wouldn’t be a complete CtB Podcap without some recommendations for your entertainment.
