Bang the gong

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

In the fourth quarter of the Cavs' frustrating loss to Chicago, Anderson Varejao found a wide-open Ben Wallace under the basket.

Wallace went up for the slam dunk, but couldn't elevate over the rim. Before he even hit the ground, the arena's sound system played the gong sound.

A little background is in order. Whenever Wallace blocks a shot or makes a big dunk, they play the gong sound. On Thursday, after the missed dunk, someone hit the button and aborted it quickly. So, it was really an abbreviated bong.

People in the stands howled with laughter. Not so much because the 6-9 Wallace missed the dunk, but because of the sound effects.

I have to admit, it was one of the funniest things I've seen in a while.
