OT - Guess who was first off Cavs bench tonight!

Submitted by mGrowOld on December 8th, 2010 at 8:39 PM

The Lebron-less Cleveland Cavs have shaken up their rotation in an effort to stop a five game losing streak.  First player off the bench in tonight's game against the Bulls?  Why it's Michigan own Manny Harris who got 3 points in 10 minutes of early playing time.  Manny  turned the ball over twice and collected one rebound and one assist so far.  Second half has begun and Manny just got put back in the game.

On a completely unrelated and very sad note I had four floor seats tonight next to the Cavs bench and was unable to get downtown due to an all-out blizzard hitting the city, shutting down all travel in and out of downtown.  If you get a chance to watch the game you'll see four empty seats next to the Cavs bench.....mine!

Drove home my 35-40 min ride took 3 hours. I feel your pain. Sorry that you missed the game but downtown was/is currently a disaster area.

They really do.  I know their Executive VP of Communications pretty well and he says don't be surprised if Manny isn't starting by the All Star break.  He's long (Cavs have zero size at guard between Gibson & Williams), has improved his handle and is starting to hit his jumper.  He plays with lots of energy and takes the ball hard to the rim.

Sort of like the Sophmore version of Manny.......

Are the Cavs really that high on him?

I heard on the news that players were having a hard time making it to the Q with all the snow, so maybe they had a short bench.

It's good to see former wolverines doing well in the pros.

(This is my first winter in Cleveland, should I expect this kind of snow regularly?)
