Turning point for Cavs?

Monday’s 109-108 overtime win in New Orleans may not look very pretty upon first glance, considering the Hornets are one of the sorriest teams in the NBA (actually, only the Hawks have a worse record). But at one point in the third quarter, the Cavaliers found themselves down 17 points. They had no energy, no heart and seemingly no chance, but then they turned on the defensive intensity in the fourth, LeBron and Sasha Pavlovic started hitting some clutch jumpers and, amazingly, the Cavaliers walked away with a big one-point win.

Of course, any road win is a big win for this team, but with the Eastern Conference standings so tight, a comeback like this could provide a late-season spark as the Cavs continue to fight for position and make their final playoff push.
