Sasha's problems

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Talk about invisible minutes. Let's examine Cavaliers shooting guard Sasha Pavlovic's night in Atlanta.

He was 0 of 2 from the field, 0 of 1 from the 3-point line, didn't get to the foul line, had no points or assists, one rebound, one turnover and four personal fouls. He played almost 15 minutes, and it would have been hard for Coach Mike Brown to play him any more.

Sasha really followed up his 13-point effort against Seattle with a strong game, huh? This guy is totally lost right now, even worse than Larry Hughes. Hughes continued his "fine" play with five points and five rebounds. However, he was 2 of 11 from the field.

If the Cavs starting backcourt isn't the worst in professional basketball (that might include the D-League), then please set me straight. Luckily for the Cavs, Brown recognizes it, too, and has been getting Hughes and Pavlovic out of the game, especially in the pivotal fourth quarters.
