Rewarding win

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Their 90-89 victory over Washington was one of the most rewarding victories of the season.

The four newcomers sat in a luxury box and watched the game. They spoke at halftime of the Wizards' game and appear to be very excited about what's to come.

Forward/center Ben Wallace has much to prove after the three-team, 11-player deal. Many around the league think he's washed up. One national columnist said he's ready for the glue factory. Now, that's a bit extreme. He might not be the player he was in Detroit.

With the Pistons, he was in a perfect system. He had three great players around him and was able to guard the basket, a trait he accomplished with much success. Whether he'll be able to thrive next to Zydrunas Ilgauskas is yet to be determined, but it going to be fun to watch.

It's impossible to know whether the trade to push the Cavs back to the NBA Finals, but don't count them out.
