Scott: Cavs Feel They Can Win No Matter Who They’re Playing

I get the sense that, just, the fact that when we’re in games, we feel we can win. I don’t know if it’s keeping it close or what, but when we play the way we’re capable of playing, we feel we can win the game no matter who we’re playing. […] That’s the ultimate confidence, when you have a guy [like Kyrie Irving] who can deliver in the crunch like he did [against Boston] , it not only gives him more confidence, but his teammates confidence as well. Every team needs one: you have to have a closer, you have to have somebody who can close the deal. The players out there feel pretty good when the ball is in his hands.

– Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott, Tuesday, on the team’s ability to compete or beat some of the better teams i the NBA. The Boston Celtics will visit Cleveland as the two teams square off for the second time in three nights.

  • I love this coach.  He tells it like it is, has masses of experiences as a player and coach, inspires his players to do better and he is the perfect leader for this young team.  A good mentor and an even better student of the game/now teacher of the game.

    May we be blessed with him for a while.

    Compare/contrast with Shurmur…yikes.

    you almost did it.  you almost made that post without the last line.  you could have done it, we believe in you 🙂

  • Yeah, you’re right.  I almost ignored 16 weeks of ineptitude and idiocy.  I almost hopped aboard the excuse train and ran it out of town.

    I’ll just never be as good as you, mgbode.  It wrecks me every day.

    What the heck do the Browns have anything to do with the Cavs. Although I agree with you, why bring it up??

    Scott is a very good coach, he is doing a wonderful job guiding Irving and has made this team competetive. I find myself almost never disagreeing with anything Scott does.
