Cavs will just have to regroup
(Sports Network) – Yeah, the Cleveland Cavaliers had their five-game winning
streak come to an end, but it’s still early in the season.
LeBron James and company were outdueled by the Washington Wizards on Saturday
night by a 111-99 score. Gilbert Arenas looked more like the Nike commercial
star rather than James, dropping in 45 points. The Cavs were burned by Arenas,
who made 14-of-22 shots, including 7-of-11 on three-pointers.
It was the most points the Cavs have given up this season and only the second
time they’ve allowed more than 100. The Cavaliers were playing their second
game without starting guard Larry Hughes, who is out with an injured ankle.
But it’s not time to panic yet for the Cavs and their beloved fans.
Even though rooting for the Browns is like chewing on tin foil with fillings
in your teeth, the Cavaliers have the best chance of bringing home the city’s
first championship in a long time.
The Cavaliers are 7-3 this season and own a two-game lead over the rival
Detroit Pistons in the Central division. Cleveland will hit the hardwood again
on Tuesday versus Memphis before hitting the road against Toronto and Indiana.
