During a timeout in the first half, Mike Brown inserted Damon Jones into the game after not playing for seven games and five games since he refused to report against the Heat on Christmas Day.
Mike Brown said, he had a gut feeling. “It was not planned, I just felt it was time to call his number,” Brown said. ”He did it, he came through for us.”
Damon Jones played 18 minutes and all of the 4th quarter. He played solid defense and drilled two 3-pointers.
Do you see Mike Brown playing Damon Jones more in the next few games or was that only to show case him to another team?
Putting him on the court with James, Daniel Gibson and Anderson Varejao in the fourth quarter was the same thing the Cavs did late in games in last year’s playoffs.
