If you wonder why LeBron tends to settle for jumpers at the end of games, even at the disgust of Cavalier fans (myself included) at times, tonight is a prime example. LeBron drove, got contact from Luol Deng and Joakim Noah, but he lost the ball with no foul call and the Cavaliers dropped a very winnable game in front of a home crowd that has now seen them lose twice in four games, as much as they lost at home all of last year. Here's a summary of some of the team's causes for concern.

Whirlwind start for Wild Thing: Anderson Varejao got more than his fair share of open looks in the early going as the Bulls defense keyed in on James and O'Neal. This isn't surprising, and even when Andy is successful, it's not going to stop the opportunities for #17. Wild Thing was 4-for-5 shooting for 7 points, his only miss a reverse dunk that went wrong. He also added 7 boards in an incredibly active first quarter.
