Darius Garland took a long time to digest the elimination of the Cavaliers in the playoffs

After their good regular season with 51 wins and with their home field advantage for the first round, the Cavaliers were the favorites when they faced the Knicks in the playoffs. But Darius Garland and his teammates were finally dominated, in just five matches.

The disappointment was great and the playmaker concedes that he needed time to digest this failure. “It took me two weeks”he remarks for the Plain Dealer. “Probably until the second round and probably when the Knicks were eliminated. »

How does the All-Star explain this?

“We haven’t played at our best throughout the series. Even during the game we won at home, very largely, we felt we had made a lot of mistakes, to attack their defense, to attack Mitchell Robinson. These are two or three things that marked me. I watched a lot of images during the summer, to improve next season. »

Darius Garland also specifies that it was a first in the playoffs for some of the Cleveland players. This exit from the road therefore functions as an apprenticeship for the group.

“We have to be more physical”, he delivers on the lessons to be learned for the future. “Their physical impact killed us during the series. Now we know how intense the game in the playoffs is physically and how much each possession counts. »
