Take That LeBum! Cavs Surprise, Topple Miami 102-90

In a game earlier this year in which the Cavs fans vented at LeBron James, the Cavaliers players responded three months later with a monumental upset of the Heat. Miami and their big three never led in the game, but came within a score.

That was when the Cavaliers came up with perhaps their biggest plays of the year. Guard Baron Davis alley-ooped to Ryan Hollins to prove some authority, and Anthony Parker, who had 20 points for the Cavs, took it right back the other way with a goal-tending three point play. J.J. Hickson added a gorgeously swift dunk with 21, but Parker and his three point shooting made some big plays for the Cavs.

Miami’s Mike Bibby broke out going 7-for-11 from three point range, totaling 23 points, but it wasn’t enough heat for Miami. Although his presence was anything but, LeBron quietly recorded a triple double with 27 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds; but all efforts went down in vain.

The Cavs never trailed in the game, controlling rebounds 44-30, and thus, the pace of the game. The Heat could never run the floor the way they can because the Cavaliers shut them down.

Enjoy it Cavalier fans! This is their best win of the year versus an unsuspecting villain.
