Cavaliers lose to Nets
A couple of interesting observations from the Q Friday night; Jay-Z and Beyonce were sitting in the front row enjoying the game and I might add were not very crowd friendly, ignoring everyone around them, much to the displeasure of the many fans hoping for at least an acknowledgement. At one point during one of the timeouts, the Scream Team handed Beyonce one of the fan favorite â€œorange ballsâ€. I think they were hoping she would have thrown it out to the crowd, but instead she kept it.
*Damon Jones, the self-professed greatest shooter in the world, was throwing the ball inbounds in front of the two. He put his hand out to shake Jay-Zâ€™s but Jay-Z ignored him. Not to be undone, Jones then put his hand out for Beyonce who obliged.
*Later in the game, Lebronâ€™s mother almost gave the Q’s security detail a heart attack by rushing over to Jay-Z (part owner in the Nets) when the Cavaliers tied the game. She appeared to be screaming at him (in a friendly rival kind of way), caught up in the moment of the game excitement. Not sure what to do, the security detail watched carefully. Then Gloria and Jay-Z hugged each other. A few minutes later another Q security guard went over to Lebronâ€™s mother, presumably reminding her to please not do that again.
Anyways Vince Carter scored a season-high 38 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out six assists to lead the New Jersey Nets over the Cleveland Cavaliers, 109-100, at Quicken Loans Arena.
Carter shot 15-of-21 from the field for the Nets, who blew a 17-point lead but rallied in the final minutes to come away with their fourth straight road win. Richard Jefferson added 18 points and Nenad Krstic had 16 points for New Jersey, which has won two straight and moved back to the .500 mark at 9-9. Jason Kidd tallied 16 points, dished out eight assists and grabbed five rebounds as the Nets shot 57.1 percent from the floor for the game to win their fourth straight versus Cleveland.
