Cross-Court Cavs: Even Week

Last week, after a week of continuous struggle, the Cavs somewhat got back on track this week, splitting the games throughout. The surge for the postseason is still on, as the Cavs look to hang on to a high seed going in.

The first game of the week was a huge confidence builder for the team, as the struggling Detroit Pistons came to town, and LeBron took over. Larry Nance Jr. also poured in a career high 22 points to go along with 15 rebounds to help secure an easy 112-90 win.

The Nuggets saw more of the same on Wednesday out in Denver, and LeBron continued to work his magic, scoring 39 points in 40 minutes to lead the way. The early surge in the first half by the King was all the Cavs needed to take down the young Nuggets, 113-108.

The next two games of the week proved to be struggles against both LA teams. The Clippers on Friday threw a balanced attack at the King, and no one else for the Cavs decided to step up in his place, and so the Clips decided to take advantage, with Tobias Harris dropping 23 to lead the way for the hometown team in a 116-102 win. The Lakers clearly took notes on the previous Cavs match-up, as LeBron struggled, but 36 points from Julius Randle proved to be huge along with Isaiah Thomas’ 20 against his former team. The Lakers ended up winning big, 127-113, and furthering the hype around the predicted LeBron’s decision potentially this summer to go to LA.

This week had its back and forths, but there was much good to look upon. The team is improving, the chemistry seems to be moving closer, and the East as a whole is struggling. The Cavs are in a good spot for the playoffs, but clearly would like to be higher, as the chase for the #1 seed continues.
