Fear The Sword: Cavs Beat The Nets, As Expected

When the best team in the league faces the worst team in the league, it’s not hard to predict the outcome. However, that so-called “worst team” sent a wake-up call to any future opponents when the New Jersey Nets took down the Boston Celtics on their own court.

Fear The Sword noticed that the Cleveland Cavaliers heard that wake-up call and refused to allow any upset to happen on their watch.

Four minutes into the game, Cleveland led 10-9 when they decided to turn on the jets. Using their trademark defense to force turnovers and a new style of run-and-gun on offense, they rattled off a 25-6 run that ended the first quarter with a dominating lead of 35-15. The Cavs run was well-rounded, with five different players putting in at least two field goals each.

For the remainder of the game, the teams basically traded mini-runs. New Jersey never drew closer than 11 points, and the Cavs never extended it beyond 22 points.
