Cavs close with 50, get Wizards in playoffs

The Cavaliers accomplished something Wednesday night that they haven’t done in thirteen seasons, and that’s win 50 games in a season. With LeBron and Larry Hughes both sitting out, the Cavs got the milestone victory and ended their regular season on a high note, beating the Hawks 100-99 at home on Fan Appreciation Night. Flip Murray led the Cavs with 19 points and Anderson Varejao grabbed 18 rebounds.

We closed out the regular season strong but the real season starts Saturday against the Wizards.

“We had fun tonight,” forward Donyell Marshall said. “We wanted to get to 50, and we had fun. This is our last chance to have fun. Now, it gets serious. It’s the second season. It’s time to go to work again.”
