One down, fifteen to go
The Cleveland Cavaliers sent a major statement Saturday night opening up their bid for an NBA championship run byÂ man handling the Detroit Pistons 102-84.
The game actually appeared a great deal closer throughout on the scoreboard until late, but there was always that feeling that Cleveland had total control and no matter what was not going to let that game slip away.
Superstar LeBron James seems to shine just a tad bit brighter when he matches up against the Pistons throwing down 38 points, grabbing 8 rebounds, and dishing out 7 assists. This being only the second time in his brief playoff career going for at least 35, 7,and 7.
The only other time being in the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals when he basically put the entire Cavs team on his back going for 48 points and the entire team’s last 25.Â James had 22 points at the half, 3 of which coming from a running bank shot just inside the half court line.
Mo Williams while starting off a slow 1 out of 5 and only 2 first half points rallied in the second half ending up 5-14 and scoring 12 points including two huge 3’s to help extend the Cavaliers lead. This is definitely an excellent way to start the playoffs. Now only 15 more wins and we reach our “One Goal.”
