Not much shaking today at Cleveland Clinic Courts. Here are some of the highlights:
* Antawn Jamison sat out today's practice with his sore left knee. Not much of a surprise. Coach Byron Scott said the knee was feeling better today and there is a chance Jamison can return on Friday at Philadelphia.
* The Cavs still haven't played a game yet with their full roster healthy, so it's hard to make any assessments on this team despite their three-game losing streak. Scott won't use the injuries as a reason for the slow start. "That's a little bit of an excuse," he said. "You still can dress 12 guys and those 12 guys have to be ready to play no matter what."
* The victory against Boston was a perfect storm of events. The Celtics were coming off an emotional back-to-back after beating the Heat and the Cavs were riding the emotion of their opener. The last three games have been more down-to-earth in terms of what the Cavs will face every night. The defense has broken down at times, the ball movement offensively has slowed at others. "We have a culture of winning here and we want to continue that," Anthony Parker said. "Nobody is satisfied with improvement. We want to get some wins."
* Ramon Sessions is likely headed back to the bench Friday, when Mo Williams returns to the starting lineup. That's fine with Sessions, who knew when he was coming here it was to be a backup. The trade that brought him here has rekindled his friendship with Williams since the two were also teammates in Milwaukee. Sessions said Williams has him "converting" to sushi. I'm not sure if there is paperwork involved in such a conversion, but Sessions is becoming a big fan. The two often do dinner together at Sushi Rock.
