THE CAVALIER CAVALIERS REVIEW:
Sunday, April 5th: WIN, Cavs 99, Bulls 94
Tempers flared in the Cavs victory over the Chicago Bulls. Lebron James recorded his first triple-double of the season, and got into a spat with his nemesis Joakim Noah. J.R. Smith added eight three-pointers, and Kyrie poured in 27 points and two buzzer beaters.
Wednesday, April 8th: WIN, Cavs 104, Bucks 99
The Cavs sealed the Central Division title with their win over the Bucks. The Cavs nearly gave up a huge 3rd quarter lead, but rode a strong 27 point performance by Kyrie Irving.
Friday, April 10th: LOSS, Celtics 99, Cavs 90
A resting Cavs team showed little fight against the Boston Celtics and trailed for most of the game. Kyrie Irving rested due to a sore hip, and Lebron James didn’t play in the 4th. Marcus Smart scored 19 points, and Boston strengthened its bid for a playoff push.
NEWS FROM “THE LAND”
Lebron would vote for himself for MVP
When asked who he would vote for for the MVP, Lebron James stated that he would vote for himself. Although he’s not the favorite for the award, one can clearly see why he would vote for himself. If I was able to average more than 5 points in the NBA, I would probably vote for myself in the race.
Kendrick Perkins need not dribble.
This should probably go in the ‘Mistakes Were Made’ section. But still, Kendrick is a Cavalier and we are so proud. Yes, he might have traveled, but those were a graceful nine steps. After watching that on replay, I think I might need 12 steps…
CLEVELAND CAVALIERS PROSPECT OF THE WEEK
Cavs Prospect of the Week
Judge Alberto Julio Banos
Height: He’s a judge from Argentina, do you think I could look this up??
Role on Team: Bieber security patrol
This story is pretty hilarious. After failing to answer to his summons for ordering his bodyguards to attack a photographer, Justin Bieber now has a warrant out for his arrest in Argentina. The warrant was issued by Judge Alberto Julio Banos.
Wow! Imagine if Judge Banos was at the Cavs games! I guarantee you wouldn’t see Justin Bieber courtside pretending to understand basketball. Bieber is known to bring bad luck to any team he interacts with, so this could be a great precaution.
*Justin Bieber should not be confused with Justice Beaver, a crime fighting beaver.
AROUND THE ASSOCIATION:
Knicks and Magic Combine for a 15 point quarter
The Knicks outscored the Magic 8-7 in possibly the saddest quarter in NBA history. 15 points is the lowest combined total in any quarter ever and the Knicks suffered a win to add to their misery.
Derrick Rose Returns
Derrick Rose returned to the Bulls, as Chicago finally has its roster healthy for the first time in months. On Saturday, Rose finished with 22 points, 6 boards, and 8 assists, looking like the D-Rose of old.
“MISTAKES WERE MADE” OF THE WEEK
Kosta Koufos Tackles Blake Griffin
Kosta Koufos decided that he would tackle Blake Griffin in Memphis’ game against the Clippers, and then got angry when Griffin fell down on him. Apparently Koufos didn’t pay attention like the rest of us during our Ohio State physics classes. However, since Blake Griffin won’t stop making Kia commercials, we’ll give Koufos a pass on this one.
