Ilgauskas Sidelined


Cleveland- Zydrunas Ilgauskaus will reportedly be sitting out the final two games before the All-Star break due to personal matters. Details have not been provided but it is obvious the Cavs will miss his presence. Espn.com notes that although Ilgauskas has had a rough season averaging just 11.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game, his numbers have skyrocketed in the last four games to 12.3 points and 11 rebounds per game. That surge in point production can't go unnoticed. Zydrunas credits the increase in production to coach Mike Brown, "I don't know how the guy does it but he is definitely an offensive genius....He just knows how to run sets and get the guys moving without the ball," Ilgauskas said.

It will definitely be a big test these next two games to see if this team can transform into a more up-tempo game with its lack of athletes (Lebron James, Daniel Gibson, Larry Hughes, Drew Gooden, Sasha Pavlovic, etc). My guess is the Cavs will be OK without their superstar.

As you can see by the picture above, my defense has improved, along with my drunken driving.
