Box Score: Hawks 83, Cavaliers 99

With the news of Varjao’s surgery combined with injury absences for CJ Miles and Daniel Gibson, this looked like it might be a rough night for the Cavaliers. Instead, we got one of the most inspired efforts from the Cavaliers this season as they came away with a really nice win against Atlanta.

Kyrie Irving stole the show in the 3rd quarter. The team looked out of sorts to start the 3rd and it was starting to look like another rough 2nd half. Irving put the team on his shoulders and scored 18 points in the 3rd quarter alone to give the Cavaliers a comfortable lead.

Tristan Thompson had yet another really strong game as he finished with 11 points and 14 rebounds for his 8th double-double in the last 10 games. Alonzo Gee opened the game on fire from outside with 4 threes in the first quarter.

All in all, this was the kind of effort I think Coach Scott has been looking for out of this team for a while now. It was a nice win as the team prepares for yet another west coast trip.
