Quality win

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Tuesday night's 99-90 win over Houston was one of the top games of the season for the Cavs. Houston, trust me, is a quality opponent. They had won 11 in a row on the road against Eastern Conference opponents.

They were playing their fourth games in five nights on Tuesday at The Q. With the exception of guard/forward Tracy McGrady, they didn't look fatigued.

The Rockets could come out of the Western Conference and make it to the NBA Finals. They have 7-6 Yao Ming and other star players like Ron Artest and T-Mac.

McGrady has been bothered by a sore knee. Perhaps he was bothered by it on Tuesday. He just didn't look right and finished with four points in 30 minutes.

This was the best team the Cavs have played at The Q this season. And, as always, the Cavs got it done with a stifling defensive effort in the last 5 minutes. It was fun to watch.
