Box Score: Cavaliers 91, Mavericks 88

The Cavaliers defeated the defending NBA Champions on Saturday night, beating the Dallas Mavericks 91-88. A huge third quarter for Byron Scott’s club was difference, as Cleveland stormed out of the locker room to take the lead. Kyrie Irving led the Cleveland comeback, scoring a team-high 20 points while dishing seven assists. Antawn Jamison added 19 points and Anderson Varejao continued his incredible streak of play, grabbing 17 rebounds and adding 17 points. It was a huge win for the Cavs, and a solid bounce back effort from the loss in Orlando on Friday.

    Great game

  • Harv 21

    Kyrie with the clutch, corkscrew drives and second straight game with great assist to turnover ratio.

    Also, I still miss Delonte. Come back, Delonte.

    Until Parker and/or Boobie return, the Cavs need a suitable SG and M. Thompson isn’t cutting it. Perhaps Gee has earned a start given that he can actually provide solid minutes and score.

    Great win in awful unis.

    I’m in favor of starting Gee, but would prefer he stays at the position he’s used to playing at now, SF. 

    I actually want to see some of Eyenga at SG.  We’ve seen Harangody & Thompson come in and give us some decent minutes, why not see what Sky can do?

    I hope this is the last time we see these unis.

     Agreed, those are hideous. I dont know why the Cavs ever changed their uni’s.

    Point taken. In my opinion, a shooting guard should be able to, uh, SHOOT. Another option is Sessions, despite his primary as a PG. Perhaps the draft can help address the SG position, given that it is currently our weakest link.
