Laughable moment (and game)

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

In a light moment in Thursday's game, Cavaliers forward Donyell Marshall was summoned to enter the game. He pulled off his warmup jacket and inadvertently yanked off his jersey as well. He stood there waiting to go into the game wearing only a blue undershirt.

The Cavs' bench howled in laughter, including LeBron James, who was sitting out of the game with a sprained ankle.

Later, when Marshall went to the foul line - for the first time this season - James yelled over to his friend. "Welcome back, Donyell," he said.

Cavs coach Mike Brown wasn't in such a jovial mood after the game. He probably wasn't thrilled with his team allowing 40 points in the first quarter, as the SuperSonics looked like they were playing the Washington Generals.

Still, the Cavs finished 2-1 on the West Coast trip, which is about as good as anyone can expect. If James misses many more games, the Cavs just aren't real competitive without him. They are 0-6 when he misses games this season.
