Pavlovic needs to step up his defense and his ball handling skills. He looks slow today.

Tied at the half.

You get the sense that LeBron is saving himself for the second half, maybe the 4th quarter.

They have got to get the clock fixed. It really seemed to get to them. Shouldn't have, because both teams are playing with the same crutch, but it really affected the Cavs more.

No field goals for Lebron and we're tied? Wow.
I love our chances in the 2nd half.

Well, hopefully thanks to that long delay, the second quarter was our 3rd quarter, and we can really take it to 'em in the second half.

Can't keep giving them second chance points.

With as poorly as we've played, I can't believe we have the lead. Seriously.

There is no way we should be within 10 points.

Maybe that's a good omen?

Daniel Gibson is our best draft choice since James. He's also proof that second rounders aren't always throwaways.

Gibson's huge shots will force Detroit to change their defense. They may have to avoid the trap and be afraid of a doubleteam again. If Gibson or someone else can make them pay a few more times then they may have no choice but to put only one man on LeBron. If the Cavs have a consistent shooter then LeBron's job gets easier.

The shooters are making it happen again!

Still a lot of time to go, but if our guys keep hitting open shots, Detroit will have no choice but to go to a straight man-to-man defense, and that's when LeBron goes to work.

Sheed's gonna get T'd up real soon.

Cavs shooting FT's the rest of the way with 8 minutes going.

And there's the T on Sheed!

Pistons in foul trouble. 5 or 6 guys have 4 fouls on them.

Another one on Sheed! He's done for game 7 if it happens! And out for the rest of this game!

It's happening! I can feel it!

Man, Gibson has been outstanding this entire game. But in the fourth quarter, there just isn't an adjective that appropriately describes how incredible he's been. He has hit everything. Just amazing.

And now, we're on our way to the first Finals in team history, barring a complete and utter meltdown.

Even though the Tribe lost, this has been the best day in Cleveland sports in a few years. Every game from here on out is now the biggest in team history. The Detroit dynasty may be over. Their aura of invincibility certainly is. Chicago and Cleveland are the new kings. The road to the finals goes through those two teams.

Thank you Cavs!

Gibson was insane. He alters your defensive plans big time.

As for Detroit, the big question for them is will Chauncey opt out and search for greener pastures.

Gibson is the player we were supposed to get when Damon Jones signed here.

I don't think he's the point guard we need though. Not yet. We still need someone who's better at running an offense. But he's definitely a keeper.

And I think Bruce Bowen just wet himself. He went from guarding Rip Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince to guarding the King himself.

Couple of things that will be forgotten:

1. LeBron's poise after game 1. He told everyone he trusted his teammates, and gave them all confidence. It allowed them the time to learn how to win, and now they might never forget. They all know 2 things right now, if need be they have the best player in the game getting their backs and if they can help they are going to be extremly tough to beat.

2. Mike Brown and his "No excuse" montra after game 2. Wether it was a foul or not, they never used it or allowed it to be an excuse. They learned from it and grew from it. Brown has caught a lot of shit this year, but if that mentality is what he has been able to teach these guys, I don't care how bad their offense is.

I think the most amazing thing about Daniel Gibson's night is that he scored 31 points...on 9 shots. NINE SHOTS! That's efficiency at it's finest. We've needed someone to step up and be money from the line. We've needed someone not afraid to go to the hole and take the freebies. We needed someone to hit the open 3. We finally got one.

I still don't have the words to explain just how important and how unbelievably special Gibson was tonight. He was everything we needed, and then some.

What a game. Cavs start out down 6-0. Fight back to a 27-21 1Q lead, only to have ALL the momentum completely sapped by the clock hijinks.

Tied at half, Cavs win the 3Q by 1. Then they just blow the Pisstons out of the building in the final quarter behind an otherworldly performance from a 21 year old kid named "Boobie".

I've never hugged so many strangers in my life.

The Cavs are in the Finals. The Cavs are in the Finals. It's still hard to believe.

Bring on Eva.

Swerb - he's talkin' 'bout ya

I spent the better part of 45 minutes just hugging random strangers.

After about 15 minutes of hanging out in the plaza amid mayhem and jubillated Cavs fans ... my crew left. I stayed for another half hour, just soaking it in. On the verge of tears the whole time. It was just emotionally overwhelming. The series was such a grind. And how it ended so violently, the Boobie explosion to start the 4th. I almost wasn't ready for it to end like that after game after game of last second nailbiters. Add in the fact that I've spent the better part of the last 30 years dreaming about this scenario playing out.

One second it was 67-66. Like five minutes later, we had pumped the Pistons full of lead and ended their run atop the East. That org will never recover from this game. Chauncey will leave. Sheed will be jettisoned. And Flip will still be the coach. Its over for them.

I wish I could have Groundhog Dayed that two hour period of time from the start of the 4th until 1 AM when I skipped out of the plaza after man hugging hundreds of random fans.
