Box Score: Hawks 103, Cavaliers 102 (OT)

Guh. The Cavaliers had this one won twice, but poor defense and timely shooting by the Hawks forced the game to overtime, and then cost the Cavs the game. Even still, the Cavaliers had a chance to win in the end, but Kyrie Irving’s jumper missed the mark and Gee wasn’t able to tip the ball in. Irving nearly had his first career triple double, falling a rebound and an assist short (29/9/9). Tristan Thompson had troubles hanging on to the ball in this one, and finished with 13 points after his career high 27 points the other day. After this game, the top 4 scoring performances by rookies this year all belong to Cavaliers. 3 for Kyrie and 1 for Tristan.

    Cavs really need to upgrade at SG and SF, I’m so tired of seeing 5 points from Parker and Casspi.

    Would have loved to see Irving’s shot fall, but we can’t expect him to make them all (hey that rhymed!). It was a tough shot after I thought he had his man beat, and it would have dropped with just a ounce less strength. Also would have loved to see Gee dunk it home – I wonder if he mistimed his jump? Alas, while I never root for the loss, they all have silver linings.

    So sick of seeing Jamison to just give up on plays
