Hawks Just Watching: Cavs Win 105-85

As LeBron split a double team at the top of the key, cruised right down the middle of the lane, and dunked backwards with the first quarter clock expiring, all (5) Hawks stood there watching him...wondering why they had to play (4) full games to be eliminated.



LeBron then closed the next quarter by simply stepping over half-court, and pulling up for a jump-shot from the A in Cavaliers. After it went down, the Cavs led 59-35 at the break.



Mike Woodson tried to rally his troops. Even ESPN Analyst Jalen Rose pleaded with them during the halftime show saying, "I know the Cavs are tough at home, but gentlemen please, show up."

They didn't show up though really, and the margin increased to 30 after (3).

In the 4th quarter the game was kinda compelling with 3 minutes to go when the lead dwindled to 15 - if you bet on the 12 point spread - however, the final margin ended up being (20), and Cleveland covered with their 6th straight double digit win of the post season.

Its funny how you just noticed the man with the different colored hats at tribe games...have you been watching the Indians in the past decade? I guess tommorow you will be writing an aritcle about how there is this man that bangs on a drum in the left field bleachers.

It looks like your gutsy prediction of Cavs in 4 is panning out so far...way to go out on a limb there.

I'm weary of cursing the team, but I have never seen a Cleveland sports franchise look so locked in and so dominate. Anything less than a championship is going to crush this town.

There never was a franchise so locked in BLJ (before lebron James). But ALJ (after lebron James) we will be seeing this often! Enjoy it Cleveland!

Tommy K said...

Alvaro...DeJa...agree with both of you...they are locked in and looking scary good...I don't want to curse them either, but like you guys said, this is a different team, with a different make-up entirely...very un-Cleveland like - these guys are on a mission.

Steve - your commentary is ignorant, strange, and completely unhumorous. Go back to the psych ward you snuck out of, nut job.

Ed from Euclid said...

Jose - I appreciate you taking the time to call that hater Steve out. Steve blows.

And Steve - before you make another comment, realize that it wasn't Shaver that called you ugly as a child, that was your mother. Now do like she has been saying, get back on that medication, see your therapist more regularly, and shut the hell up.

Keep up the good work Shaver!

Alvaro - I agree with your sentiments exactly...I don't want to curse these guys either, but they are absolutely locked in. That said, it looks like a Parade on Prospect is ineveitable.

Shaver Sports said...

Deja - It is certainly a new day in Cleveland.

TK - Thanks for checking back in...'un-Cleveland' like indeed!
