Poor second half ends Cavs season

The Cavaliers battled with the Pistons and kept it close in the first half but the experience of Detroit and some horrible shooting by the Cavs in the second half resulted in a 79-61 win for Rasheed Wallance and company. LeBron scored 21 points in the first half and the Cavaliers went into the locker room only down two at the break. Unfortunately for the Cavs, the second half was a totally different story. LeBron scored only 6 and the Cavs as a team shot a putrid 19 percent in the second half. Detroit turned it up a notch and held the Cavs to only 23 points.

“Detroit showed why they are champions,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said.

Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons, who will face the Miami Heat in a rematch of last year’s Conference final, with 20 points in the game.

LeBron did what he could but couldn’t get any help from his supporting cast. Jumpers did not fall and the Cavs offense was a complete struggle in the second half. They failed to move the ball around and often stood and watched as LeBron tried to create. It’s a disappointing end to a magical season but I think everyone can agree that this experience will only make us better for the future. We went toe-to-toe with the mighty Pistons for seven games and that’s something that the team and the city can be proud of.
