Simply amazing

When your team is down by 25 in the third quarter, most would chalk it up as a loss and turn the game off in disgust. Most of us probably did that Saturday night with the Cavs, who fell behind 25-6 in the first quarter. But behind LeBron’s 38 points, 25 of which came in the second half, the Cavs staged an improbable comeback and outscored the Celtics 34-17 in the fourth quarter to win a 94-93 thriller at the Q.

“We had no business winning that game,” Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. “We willed our way to a win.”

The Cavs looked lifeless in the first half, especially in the first quarter. Somehow, the lightbulb went on and LeBron James decided to take over in the second half and did not allow the Cavs to lose. Sasha Pavlovic had his second consecutive double-digit scoring night with 14 points while the Wild Thing added nine points and 10 boards for the Cavs.

The Cavaliers have been extremely streaky so far this season and although we won Saturday, it has to be a little concerning that it took us an entire half to get in gear. Great win nonetheless.
