Another easy one for Cleveland

Finally, after an eight-day break from meaningful basketball, we Cleveland fans have something to cheer about again. To me it almost felt like the season was over. It had been so long of a break it almost felt like the pre Lebron era, when the Cavaliers never played basketball in May.

Three hours before the first ever postseason matchup between Cleveland and Atlanta, the league MVP was out on the court warming up, even before the lights at The Q were fully illuminated. The first ever Cavalier to win the MVP award shows us why he is what he is. THE KING.

After the 20,000 anxious Cleveland fans drowned David Stern’s MVP presentation speech out, the Cavs were able to shake some of the rust off. After starting off slow the Cavs finally got things rolling in the second half. Mike Brown said “No matter how much rust we have on our bones, we can still play defense.” After halftime the Cavs defense held Atlanta to 28 points. The Cavs have won each of the first five-playoff games by double digits, the first team to do this since Detroit in 2004.

This Cavalier basketball team is the perfect example of how to play team basketball. They put on a clinic every time they go out onto the court. From the before game high fives and photo ops to the on and off the court camaraderie, this team is as one. I don’t see any teams being able to stop them on the road to the championship series.
