What a great fuckin' win.

Honestly, that was a tremendous game to watch, all incidental officiating and diva moments aside.

Great players. Good game.

Notice who LeBron went right over to for a hug/mild chest bump after the final Wade miss? Mike Brown.

Holy crap. I was going to go to bed after the 1st quarter deficit... but anymore, it seems any game is winnable for the Cavs.

Superstars get calls in their gym.

If you don't think James gets his at The Q and all over NBA arenas you're either insincere or ignorant.

Tonight he's up against one of the other two or three supernovas in the game. So yeah, it sucks those four times a year when you're on the receiving end.

Try being the Nets.


Pretty sure that's why I led with, "I know Lebron gets plenty of bailout calls" I know lots of them are undeserved, too.

But more than any other superstar in the game (sans maybe Howard) Lebron DOESN'T get the calls taht Kobe/Wade get because he's such a physical beast.

The officiating in this game was RIDICULOUS. From the calls in the first half you can add Boobie's "loose ball foul," Haslem taking 3.5 steps on the play that put them up 90-89, and the missed goal tend. It got to the point where every single player on the floor and the bench was just staring at each other in disbelief. Im shocked they got the call right on Beasley's basket interference.

Cavaliers had nothing going for them tonight- not the first quarter, not the bounces, not the officiating- and they found a way to hang around and steal it at the end.

I fuckin heart this team. :dingle:

BTW, four of our last six games have been decided by one point.

Now that Shaq is a Cav, I am offended that the D on him can just literally just push on him with both hands and knees, and hips as hard as you can. Of course, when he wasn't a Cav, I was offended that the dude was 7'1 and 400 lbs and impossible to defend on the post.

Agree that Wade got a lot of phantom calls. Shocking phantom calls.

On LBJs last shot, no goal tending because the ball never got into the cylinder. The ball made it to the side of the rim, not on the rim.

Defensive rotations much better late in the game ... getting to the open guys after we doubled Wade.

'Nother big timely three from Boobie off an LBJ assist.

And LBJ stealing a behind the back pass with the game on the line. Dude amazes in different ways every night.

If Jawad left him WIDE FUCKING OPEN on the double team one more time for that 10 ft baseline jumper my head was going to explode. At the timeout Lebron turned to Brown at the bench, hands wide, and the look on his face said, "SERIOUSLY?!?"

No, I agree with you. However, my point is that they did better in the last four or so minutes. That wide open 10 footer wasn't quite wide open in the last four minutes or so. That's my point. There were no defensive rotations before that. Pick and roll/pop and nobody rotated.

All true. But you know it going in. That's what makes it that much more difficult to walk into a star's gym and compete, much less win.

That's also what makes it that much more useless complaining about it when what you know will happen happens.

Shaq coulda been arrested for the no-call blow he delivered late in the game too. The refs were bad. They're almost always bad. It's the worst sport in the world for consistency of calls and for star-fucking.

Pass the beer nuts.

I just wanted to make sure you were talking about only the last four minutes. Because it took as a good while to get the rotations acceptable once we went to that double. And LBJ manning Wade up didn't hurt.

Interesting comments from Brown in the post game. Said at that timeout they decided to go small but the whole team said no, they wanted to stick with the game plan and they just needed to do a better job. No more open jumpers after that timeout. Gotta love that attitude.

Also loved the fact that LeBron took D Wade one-on-one and told Brown not to send a double team cause he had em.

That steal and the last stop on D Wade were great, and they aren't even the best game-saving defensive plays for LeBron in the last two games.

You are right. But is the uniqueness of that defensive play that make it special. Dude is so impressive.

When LBJ and Wade go into the HOF, they should just show the 2nd quarter at the induction. Dang. Go get me some popcorn... I'm just gonna sit back and watch... so did the other 8 dudes on the floor!!

He saw that pass the second Wade decided to make it. He watched Wade wave a teammate over to the wing and turn his body away back toward the middle of the floor. LBJ knew it was coming. What's impressive is the reflexes and the strength to keep that ball in bounds, gather it in and then still have a burst to get past Wade toward the rim. 99% of guys heady enough to see the pass watch it go out of bounds off their hands or leg.

99% of the 1% who could make the play don't have the ability to turn it into a dunk, layup or free throws.

Unreal.

Here is my favorite part of this win for me...

Had they lost this game, every one of us would have given them a free pass.
The media would have given them a free pass.
MB would have given them a free pass.

They are short-handed. On the road. Against D-Wade and some home cookin'.
They are physically beat after a couple of tough emotional wins that were real battles to win.
They got a bunch of home games comin' up that would make up for it.
It woulda been OK for them to lose this one. Maybe even expected for them to do so.

But they didn't. They won the darn game anyways.

These are the kind of games that at the end of the season, when the dust settles, ... these are the kind of wins that just might make the difference in home court advantage. And they coulda let up. But they didn't.

Remember this win when it is all over. This and a possible host of other Ws like it!

I am fired up!!

Me too OD. And you're dead nuts right about all of it. I had them half written off before I left work this afternoon for all the reasons you mentioned and before the officials took the floor.

I said it in my recap: to me that was the most impressive win of the year when you consider all of what you wrote. The Lakers win on Christmas Day was great. But this one was right there.

From Peek's game wrap:
http://www.theclevelandfan.com/article_ ... blgId=5639

That's five in a row and the last four have come against superstars Chris Bosh, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Wade.
Great point. Don't take that accomplishment lightly.

LBJ scored 32 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a virtuoso performance. Shaquille O'Neal backed him up with 19 points and five boards. Daniel Gibson scored 15 big points and even tallied one assist while Anderson Varejao added 13 points and hauled down 10 rebounds for the Cavaliers.
Too funny Peek. We have effectively lowered the bar for Boobie as the point guard.

Situationally, I would compare this game vs Miami with the Lake Show's game against Toronto the other day. Except one thing. The Cavs found a way to win. The Lake Show did not.

This stretch of games is going to help this team come playoffs. As much as I enjoyed the Rick Rolls last year I enjoy these type of games even more. This team has been playing playoff type basketball for a week+. IMO this only helps them come mid April forward.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Great, great win by the Cavs. Good too see the team leaning on Shaq for scoring attempts now that Mo and Delonte are laid up. With LeBron on the bench in Q4, it was a nice steady stream of post-ups, which lead to clock-stopping fouls and LeBron getting more rest. Shaq, this is your one month to play in 4th gear- then you can refill the tank for the playoffs. Impose your prowess around the rim, Big PickUp.

Side note: SportsCenter led their 8AM intro with McLeod and Uncle Austin's call of LeBron Q2 dunk. It's my opinion tht national exposure of bafoonery led to Reghi's pink slip- so there's hope, huh?

Side note 2: I am way over invested in this team. Every game feels like a can win/must win. Need to pace my adrenelin for the stretch run.

I think the boozing/wife beating* combined with him not being Dan Gilbert's boy had more to do with it than any bafoonery.

Austin Carr will see Reghi's bufoonery and raise him by 100. There isn't a worse play by play team in the league. I'm embarassed every time the Cavs guys are on NBA tv and the world is exposed to them.

Sorry to have brought this debate up again, as this conversation has been had here 10X times. AC is a color man, where the ex-jock shows his heart, humor, and independent studies degree. Reghi was a play by play man, a different role than color- and Gilbert prefers McLeod's vanilla to Reghi's neopolitan. A neopolitan of hyperbole, *alleged boozing, and *alleged back-handing.

Who gives a shit, it's still 3 weeks till the trading deadline. Let's rehash bullshit.

McLeod sucks too. It's funny that the Cavs television broadcasting has the same problem the Indians has; GREAT radio guys coupled with gag-worthy television crews.

It's more like Reghi was a bologna sandwich and Mcleod is a chopped liver with moldy cheese sandwich. Better analogy. Neither is tasty but only one makes me sick.

Good stuff. Ironic that both sandwiches (with a side of cabbage) are Daily Specials at Sokolowski's.

Damn I love Sokolowski's. Coupled with Melt and Panini's, it's where I take people when I bring them into Cleveland to show them what a real sandwich is.

I know they are solely burger joints, but you should add Heck's and Bspot Burgers @Eton to that list. Bspot's got a burger that is topped with pulled pork. Not to mention the Vanilla Apple-Bacon Bourbon milkshake FTW.

Every thread here has become Quarterback discussion or Sokolowski's/Cabbage/Bacon-Shakes talk.

We're from Cleveland, lamenting sports and drooling over fat-tastic foods is in our DNA. Don't fight it.

Want me to go spread god's distaste for our teams all over some random food blog to bring order to the force?
