Cavs down Celtics

Last night the Cavaliers were in Boston. They started off trailing 10-2, but quickly erased that Celtics lead, only to fall behind again. This time the Celtics held the lead until early in the 4th quarter, at which point the Cavs overtook Boston and built a double digit lead. However, Cleveland would squander the big lead and make it close in the end. When a desperation 3 by Boston caught iron an bounced away as time expired, the 107-104 victory was secured and the Cavs had finally won two road games in a row. My favorite play was at the end of the first half when Lebron James caught a short attempt at a 3 by another Cavalier and put it up behind his head and in with 00:00:02 left in the period. The Cavs are now 19-12, and in second place in the division.
In other news, the Jackets lost 3-0 to the LA Kings. I didn't stay up to watch it, and I'm glad I didn't. Columbus is 15-21-4 and in 4th place in the central division.
Also, Notre Dame proved once again that if they play a top 10 team, they'll get blown out. LSU crushed the Irish 41-14 in last nights Sugar Bowl.
