The Cleveland Cavaliers played one of their best overall games and came away with a resounding victory over the Wizards 121-85.
Zydrunas Ilgauskas was 10 for 10, the first time since 1973 that a player has not missed a field goal with at least 10 attempts.Â Drew Gooden was 8 of 11 and Andy 3 of 4 resulting in the largest margin of victory since 1994.
â€œFor some odd reason, we get to the point where we just say itâ€™s time t o play great basketball,â€ James said.Â â€œWe talked abut going for the jugular,â€ Gooden said, about the third quarter.Â â€œWe didnâ€™t want to let up even when they took their starters out and put their reserves in.Â We wanted to keep pounding the ball down low and get right into them.â€
Up next:Â Phoenix Suns
