San Antonio-Darius Garland feels early. A few hours before the puncture.
Even though Monday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs started earlier than usual-6pm local time instead of 7pm-the Cleveland Cavaliers still shot the morning shots at the AT&T Center. There is no circus. Stop joking, no laughter. Everyone is locked. This is all business. Then, when the Cavaliers were about to head to the team hotel near the famous San Antonio Riverwalk, Garland told his assistant JJ Outlaw (the coach overseeing Garland̵
Garland was wrong.That is great day. His best results in his youth helped the Cavaliers overcome a frustrating five-game losing streak and beat the Spurs 125-101.
The second-year point guard scored Cleveland’s first nine points. He just started, hitting a career-high 37 points with 14 goals in 22 innings, including 30 three-pointers and 10 hits with 5 goals.
Garland showed it all. Imagine. Ball handling. by. shooting. There are patented airships, complete driving, smooth jumpers and long-range bombs. He swayed around the screen, cooked the defender in isolation, to wherever he wanted. He even got stronger on the defensive end, getting two steals and one block. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich suddenly caught a trap and tried to put pressure on the court. He uses multiple guards, some defensively fast, some defensively fast. The Spurs even moved to different areas several times. did nothing. Garland has all the answers.
This is exactly what the Cavaliers envisioned two years ago, when they made Garland the fifth overall pick in the 2019 draft and paired with Colin Sexton, hoping to build a vibrant young backcourt. Although Garland’s gains have been slower, nights like Monday have shown potential. He began to look closely at the team’s point guard. This is why his teammates call him “DG PG”.
“Everything is there. We have to keep getting out of trouble,” Cavaliers coach JB Bickerstaff told cleveland.com.
After Bickerstaff (Bickerstaff) is more like a practice shootout, Garland (Garland) focused on two aspects when discussing the winning blueprint. He has had the same thing throughout the season: the first and third quarters.
Garland made sure that Monday was not a problem. Aggressive, he scored 11 of 37 points in the first quarter. During this break, Cleveland’s energy did not drop. Garland led more time out of the locker room. He added another 14 points in third place. The league’s worst third quarter team exploded with 43 points in that dizzying 12 minutes. . This time, the Cavaliers only need to protect a leader, rather than fighting uphill.
Garland said: “In the second half of the game, we just need to invest a lot of energy and follow the first half of the game.” “Play with rhythm, speed, swing the ball, and maintain an open appearance. We are just in the whole This has been promoted in the second half of the year. Get a relaxed look and a lot of swings for 3 seconds. Only go in tonight.”
Sexton scored 22 points and rebounded from a bad shot. Isaac Okoro (Isaac Okoro) also reached double figures, averaging 6 4 goals and 3 deep 3 goals and 11 points per game. Kevin Love was uninjured for the third consecutive game and maintained the one-minute limit despite the injury, scoring 9 points and 8 rebounds in 26 minutes.
“I want to go back to the movies. Keep high confidence. Please prove that I can do it every night. Keep playing the game I have been playing,” Garland said. “If the shot is successful, the shot will be fine. If not, you still have to figure out how to win. This has to do with the players of this team, not just me. We have all brought it tonight.”
At the end most of the time is about answering questions. What works. No. Who belongs to. Who doesn’t know that Garland keeps showing where he fits and why the Cavaliers never stop believing him.
“I thought he was great tonight,” Bickerstaff said. “We saw his potential in the draft, and this is clearly why we chose him. We believe in his potential. Because of his situation, this is a difficult start. But we know the pace is coming. We want him every night. We all play with this belief and confidence, because that is the responsibility of the point guard and the responsibility of the carrier. Therefore, when he has this feeling, we hope that he will use it, install it, and be on Thursday. Oklahoma City will bring him into the game, and then move on to the next game, because this is the potential we see in him.
On Monday night, Bickerstaff shortened his bench, leaving only four guys, and Sadie Osman once again withdrew from the rotation. Well, until the game gets out of control and it’s time for Brodric Thomas to end. This adjustment worked. Behind back-up center Isaiah Hartenstein and Taurean Prince, the Cavaliers scored 42 points.
Hartenstein scored 16 points on 7 of 8 shots, had 12 rebounds and 3 assists. The prince had 14 points and 7 rebounds.
The Cavaliers will play a three-game road trip to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.The supply is set at 8 p.m.
