The Cavs more or less didn't show up for game 5, and got beat by the Nets 83-72. And that score is closer than it should have been. They now hold a 3-2 lead in the series, and will play game 6 in New Jersey on Friday night.
The Indians however have awakened from their mini slump on the road by coming home. Tuesday the had two 6 run innings and beat the Twins 15-7, and tonight CC Sabathia shut down Minnesota as the Tribe won 7-1. Cleveland is now 23-14 and 1/2 game behind Detroit for the division lead.
