That was really well done, no? Think back to your feelings and emotions from a year ago. I clearly remember my own personal anxiety and confusion at the outset of a changed world, trying to figure out which boxes needed to be checked on behalf of all those close to me.
As for tonight’s game, Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. are expected to return from the injury list, but Darius Garland, Cleveland’s starting point guard, is out.
