Random dribbles following the Cavaliers’ 128-103 blowout of a road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday.
1. The Cavs have to be thrilled they are done in Los Angeles for another year. They have to be ecstatic to get away from the likes of LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard — and back to facing opponents who are somewhere closer to the middle of the pack.
2. Talent, depth and superstars will eventually wear down a team like the Cavs. It happened against LeBron and the Lakers on Monday. It happened again vs. Kawhi and the Clippers. Both of those opponents are much too dynamic for a rebuilding program.
3. So the Cavaliers will likely be thanking the heavens and kissing the ground in Memphis on Friday, when they get to face the middle-of-the-road Grizzlies.
