Charlotte Bobcats Summer League Game 2: vs Cleveland Cavaliers preview/open thread

Time: 8:30 p.m. EST

The Bobcats will take on the Cavs in the second game of the Las Vegas Summer League. But instead of an interesting Irving vs Walker matchup, we'll get Walker vs Dion Waiters. Waiters, the guard Cleveland drafted fourth overall this year will probably start after Irving reportedly broke his hand. The rest of the Cavs' summer league squad isn't too intriguing, but there's still young fellers Tyler Zeller and Tristan Thompson. The Bobcats do have basically four of their regular season starters, but it seems new head coach Mike Dunlap and new rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist have helped implement a sterling smothering defense that focuses on creating turnovers and getting into transition. Well, in summer league, at least. Whatever that means.

Regardless, enjoy the game. Have some fun watching rookies and young guns prove their mettle. After all, that's what Summer League is all about.
