Flip comes up big

When the word “clutch” comes to mind, nobody on the Cavaliers has fit that description the last five games. Until Thursday night. With less than four seconds remaining, the newly acquired Ronald “Flip” Murray drained a three-pointer to send the Cavs to victory, beating the Chicago Bulls, 92-91.

“My man came off me to slide over on LeBron,” Murray said. “He left me wide open.”

The Cavaliers held a 25 point lead but let the Bulls tie it up late in the fourth quarter. Flip, who finished with 13 points, hit the biggest shot of the game to snap the Cavaliers’ five game losing streak. LeBron James scored 33 points for the Cavs and was two assists shy of a triple double.

This game never should have come down to the final seconds but a win is a win. The Cavaliers desperately needed this, as we all know. Maybe a last second victory is just what this club needs to get them jump started.
