Perhaps more than any team in the league, the Cavs need practice time. They need to spend time together on the court. They need to know each others' idiosyncracies. They need to find out where they like the ball, when they like the pass delivered and when to get out of the way.
They are 1-1 since the trade, and really should have beaten the Bucks on Tuesday. That's because the their next opponent, Boston, has the best record in the NBA. That's going to be a tough game whether center Zydrunas Ilgauskas plays or not.
Ilgauskas missed his first game of the season on Tuesday with an upper-respiratory infection. He'll be needed on Wednesday, but is listed as questionable.
