For the first time since New Year’s Day, the Cleveland Cavaliers have a lead after the first quarter. That day, it was the Chicago Bulls the Cavaliers were beating on the road. The lead, of course, didn’t last.
Tonight, the Cavaliers may have a better chance to hold on against the Nets in New Jersey. J.J. Hickson has 10 points early on for the Cavs while Daniel Gibson has chipped in 9.
