Thriller in DC

The Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Washington Wizards Monday night at the Verizon Center. The Cavs looking to get back on the right track to dominate in the regular season, and Washington looking to continue its hot streak at home. The Wizards who have been playing great were a great challenge for the struggling Cavaliers, who were on the road. Prior to the game starting their was a rumor that Lebron told his front office to go for Carmelo Anthony, even if it meant Cleveland giving up Love. This game was exciting from tip-off to the final buzzer. In the closing seconds of the game Cavs down one to the Wizards, Lebron drove to the hoop and had a wide open lay up, that he ended up missing. When asked about the blow lay up Lebron replied with “I traveled and the extra step threw off my rhythm and I just missed it. Just when you thought the game was over the Cavs get the ball back with 3 seconds to go and no time outs remaining. Kevin Love, who is known for his great full court passing, passed it all the way down the court to James, who caught it just inside the three point line took a step back turnaround jumper falling into the stands. Of course Lebron being Lebron he banked it in off the glass to send the Cavs to overtime. Lebron fouled out shortly into overtime where Kyrie took over scoring the Cavs last 11 points. Lebron finished with 32pts, 7reb, and a career high 17 assists. Kevin Love ended with 39pts, 12reb and Kyrie had 23pts and 5 assists.
