Best in the East.....(for the moment)


At 22-12, the Cavaliers are currently the team with the best record in the Eastern conference, leading Detroit by 1 game and Orlando by 1.5. Last night the Cavs were down by 15 points at halftime in Sacramento, but a 42-12 run from the end of the 3rd quarter into the 4th turned the tables and they took a commanding lead. The Kings would make one final run, but Cleveland was able to hold on and win by ten, 108-98. The biggest part of the turn around was the staunch defense the Cavs played, and it helped that LeBron James hit 3 three-pointers in a row on the offensive side to help build the newfound lead. This was the first game out of 7 Cleveland plays on this western road trip, with their next game coming on Thursday in Phoenix.

It looks like Chris Webber might be coming to the Detroit Pistons. That ought to change the standings in the east; most likely for the worst. At least the Cavs will be able to win now for sure. As a Michigan fan I cannot stand Chris Timeout Webber. Hopefully he receives a “warm” welcome if he returns.

Would they have to focus on always letting him know how many timeouts the team has left?....
