Oh my gosh
Why it took the Cavs so long to finally start playing on Tuesday, no one knows. But they were downright awful for almost three quarters.
Once they flipped that switch, it was almost scary. Their defense threw a blanket over the Clippers' offense. They couldn't get an easy look at the basket in the late going.
Guard Mo Williams finished with 14 points, but he had one of his worst shooting nights of the season. He did make a couple clutch shots down the stretch.
Their next road win will set the franchise record. They now have 22, which ties the all-time record set by the 1991-92 team.
They also won 50 games for the third time in the last four seasons. The franchise record is 57, done on two occasions. That record is going down as well.
Forward LeBron James recorded his second triple-double in as many games. He has five on the season and 22 in his career.
The Cavs trailed after three quarters, 69-52. The Clippers' biggest lead in the game is 19 points.
