Box Score: Cavs 84, Raptors 80

It took a bunch of D-Leaguers and Coach Byron Scott getting thrown, but the Cavs finally managed to beat the Toronto Raptors (though it’s more accurate to say that the Cavs stole this game.) Cleveland trailed 63-52 after three quarters, looking lifeless and well on their way to their 10th consecutive loss. But a combination of Lester Hudson’s energy (23 points, 7 assists), Toronto’s laziness and Antawn Jamison’s 16 point(!) fourth quarter earned the Cavs their first victory since March 19th against the Nets.  The win bring the Cavs’ record to 18-35, placing them 13th in the East and fourth worst in the NBA.
