Josh Giddey has fouled out.
By the way, Tre Mann picked up four fouls in seven minutes, and he only played two more minutes after that. – 10:35 PM

So Kevin Love, every Cleveland Cavaliers fan in attendance and the refs think Lu Dort has eyes in the back of his head?
I mean, yeah, he plays defense like he does, but he doesn’t literally. – 10:10 PM

The Thunder left Charlotte after the game last night, but they didn’t get to their hotel in Cleveland until 8 a.m.
First, their bus got stuck on icy roads in Charlotte. Daigneault and crew did some pushing. Then their plane was held up for five hours, so they switched planes. – 6:51 PM
