Last year almost seemed too easy with 2 sweeps in a row. Kinda like they were being given it on a silver platter and then Orlando rained on their unpreparred parade. The teams before Orlando were too soft and didn't give the Cavs much pressure.
This year having to face a decent Bulls teams, likely Boston and then Orlando. They'll have to stay up on their game throughout the playoff and not just turn it on in the Championship round. I think these matchup will only make the Cavs stronger now that they are going to have to fight through every round and not just one.
As a Cleveland fan, I'm glad they lost. I don't want them to run through the first 2 rounds with no competition like last year, made them unprepared for Orlando. So good job Chicago, be ready to get raped next game.
I love it how Noah gets boo'ed in Cleveland, it cracks me up...Ohio State fans don't forget that national championship loss a few years ago...
