He said it. Everyone close to him has said it. Everyone I’ve spoken to has said it. The Patriots are going forward with the very strict and stern belief that he will be playing for 2018. I don’t get the sense that they considered any of these reports this morning about ‘maybe he doesn’t play.’
Larry Nance Jr. did a decent job switching onto Indy guards, though Oladipo drilled a couple of stone-cold jumpers in his face. If Nance can hang — and he is hit or miss on switches — the Cavs might as well just start him over Green. He is a better defender and rebounder, and the Cavs can use him as a screener to unlock LeBron’s spread pick-and-roll game:
Lue continues to have Love trap pick-and-rolls 25-plus feet from the rim, even though doing so opens holes everywhere. The Cavs were so worried about Turner slipping behind Love, they parked a third guy at the foul line — Jordan Clarkson here, about 30 feet from his actual man — to help before the pick-and-roll really even got started:
You can understand this: Make anyone but Oladipo beat you. Cleveland allowed less than a point per possession on trips when Love defended the screener — a stingy mark, per Second Spectrum.
The series shifts back to Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, where the two teams will square off in Game 5 at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Here is a look at the potential remaining schedule for the series:
Coleman expressed his desire to remain with the team this season back in March on Good Morning Football .
I really want to stay but it’s out of my control right now, Coleman said. Some things are just out of your control.
He signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent after the 2014 NFL Draft . He recorded 79 catches for 1,099 and 8 touchdowns in his four seasons in New Orleans.
With Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn returning alongside recent acquisition Cameron Meredith , the roles of Coleman and unsigned restricted free agent Willie Snead are up in the air this offseason.
Jesus Aguilar singled with one out in the sixth, and Robert Gsellman relieved. Milwaukee loaded the bases when Frazier allowed Domingo Santana’s two-out grounder to roll under his glove at third for infield hit, and the Brewers took a 2-1 lead when Rosario bounced a throw for a two-run error after making a sliding stop on Perez’s grounder to shortstop.
