Box Score: Spurs 114, Cavaliers 98

The Cavaliers competed, but in the end, they were no match for a San Antonio Spurs team that looks poised for a deep playoff run. The Spurs shot 55% and connected on eight three pointers as they defeated the Cavaliers 114-98 in the AT&T Center. The Spurs were led by their bench of Manu Ginobili (20 points, 9-of-12 shooting) and Stephen Jackson (17 points) as their bench outscored the Cavaliers’ bench 62-27. Antawn Jamison paced the Cavaliers with 21 points, and their starting backcourt shined with Kyrie Irving adding 19 points and Manny Harris posting 14. The Cavaliers are now 21-42 on the season and face the Grizzlies in Memphis tomorrow night.

    If the Cavs had some 3-point shooters, they definitely could have won that game.  There were so many wide-open 3-point shots that were missed.  Kyrie was setting them up at will drawing multiple defenders in the paint and kicking the ball out.  The Spurs’ shooters don’t miss those shots.  So that gives me some hope for next year… hopefully we can find some guys who can shoot.
