Cavaliers Fritter Away Most Of Lead; Margin Is Down To A Hoop At 69-67

The Cavaliers have four in double figures after three quarters while the Nets have only two in doubles. Unfortunately for Cleveland, Devin Harris, with 24, has more than twice as many points as any Cavalier, and Harris’s exploits have New Jersey right in the game after three periods, with the Cleveland lead cut to 69-67.

Cleveland’s leading scorers at the half, J.J. Hickson and Ryan Hollins, were both shut out in the third quarter, as New Jersey closed the gap with a three right before the third-quarter buzzer.
