Cavs out, Nets in

Well, at least they took care of business in the final two games of the season, right? Despite beating up on the Raptors 104-95 Wednesday night, the Cavaliers failed to qualify for the playoffs because of New Jersey’s 102-93 win over Boston. LeBron was magical in his final game of the season, getting a triple-double early in the second half and finishing the game with 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists, but as was the case throughout most of the second half of the season, it just wasn’t enough for the Cavaliers.

It’ll be a very interesting offseason as the Cavs try to recover from this devastating late-season collapse. Will Z be back next year? Will they be able to land a top-flight shooting guard like Michael Redd or Ray Allen? Can Dan Gilbert keep LeBron happy? It’s certainly a disappointing conclusion to a season that started on such a high note, but as long as LeBron James is in Cleveland, this team has a chance to compete. Now they just need to push all the right buttons this offseason.
