Ugly night at the Garden
DidÂ we reach the lowest point of the season yet? I sure hope so because this was the ugliest and the most embarrassing game for the Cavaliers.
Today, the Daily News ran â€œFire Isiahâ€ signs in the paper for people to hold up tonight.Â Two dozen fans rallied outside Madison Square Garden, holding a signed 8-by-4-foot pink placard urging Garden chairman James Dolan to fire Thomas.
At the game, one fan held a sign reading: I am at the last game Isiah ever coached.
This should give you an idea of how bad things are at the Knicks world.
Several Cavs joked in the locker room that they should wear helmets in case the fans start throwing stuff on the floor. I guess that explains why the players didn’t want to play tonight!!!
LeBron James had 32 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Drew Gooden was the only other player in double figures with 11 points.
