Deng’s reunion ruined
Cavs were looking to rebound from their defeat against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. Division rivals, Chicago Bulls were trying to keep their five and half game lead in the standings over Cavs. If the playoffs were to start today the Bulls will be the sixth seed and Cavs will be out. With former Bull and newest member of Cavs Luol Deng, they tried to change the current standings in their favor. With an 8-2 record in their last 10 games, Bulls are still winning without the former all-star.
Deng had a bad shooting night going 2 for 11 from the field and finished with 11 points, most coming from the free throw line. He has been with the Bulls since becoming a part of the NBA out of Duke University. This was new for him and different but he had four other teammates on the floor with him to help try and win the game.
"I never done anything like this before, it was strange," Deng said. "But it’s the Cavs versus the Bulls not so much about me, we could’ve played better."
Bulls guard D.J. Augustin was picked up by the team after superstar guard Derrick Rose went down with another knee injury. Augustin tied a season high scoring 27 points. He shot the ball pretty well going 8 for 14 from the field and 5 for 8 behind the arc. At times he appeared to be a step quicker and consistently gave Cavs guard Kyrie Irving problems.
"He is quick, he can shoot it and he gets to the paint." Brown said. "The different coverage’s we tried just wasn’t good enough."
The ball stuck on one side of the floor on offense, almost never moving to the other side for the entire game. That made it hard for Cavs to be effective on offense and made it difficult for Cavs defense to get stops. They finished the game shooting 37.5 percent from the field despite Irving scoring 26 points and shooting 53 percent for the night.
"They brought us to a standstill and a halt offensively, the ball for us stayed on one side of the floor," Brown said. "They were more physical than us and they played with more energy." Cavs got off to another slow start and trailed most of the first half but managed to lead at halftime, 44-43 after fighting to get back into the game. Bulls started the third quarter on a big 20-8 run which gave them the lead the rest of the way.
"We just have to be better, including myself, there were a lot of mistakes made on both ends of the floor,”Irving said. “We have to have a more consistent effort and more of a sense of urgency, especially starting games."
Cavs coach Mike Brown wasn’t happy with the team’s effort. Coming into the game Cavs knew the Bulls were a physical team and played well even while missing players like Deng, Rose and Boozer. You weren’t able to tell the Bulls were short-handed because they came into Quicken Loans Arena and handed Cavs their second straight loss at home.
"They handed us our lunch and we didn’t respond well, that’s what’s disappointing," Brown said. “We talked about the tougher team or the more physical team would win the game, we didn’t show up in that department tonight against those guys.”
The team faces the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. The game is Cavs third of their five game home stand. Cavs and Bucks are 1 and 1 against each other this year, both teams protecting their home floor. Irving scored 39 points and helped Cavs pull out the win in overtime.

Some thoughts I’ve had on music. Photo by Deadbolt Photos

Music is more than mere instruments and vocals blending together to make a sound. It’s an outcry of its author’s soul; an intense emotional release. Music creeps in like a spell and mesmerizes or repels the audience. A gorgeous melody, regardless of its lyrical content, will often dilute the soundest mind. Parallel to the music are the lyrics, which expose the intentions of the artist. When strong lyrics – whether evil or good – pair up with an enchanting melody, it is a force most unstoppable.

The writer and poet’s work lies silently until it’s read – usually by someone who is of sound mind and searching for knowledge. The musician’s work, however, reaches as far as the human ear scientifically allows it and touches all who have ears, making its impact much more pronounced.

Thus, the lyricist and the musician are held double accountable for their content.
