The Cleveland Cavaliers really turned on the after-burn last night in the fourth quarter against the Houston Rockets. It is good to see the Cavs were able to pull away in the fourth and post another win giving the team their third win in a row. Yes you can say Winning streak. Not many thought the Cavaliers would fair too well on the road trip out west, after all they had to play the Thunder who were 17-1 at home and the Denver Nuggets at that high altitude right? The Cavaliers found something last night Coach Scott has been talking about all season and they put the game away.
The Cavaliers got off to an early lead making it a four point lead after one. Then in the second the Rocket would mount a come back at the half Houston would go into the locker room with a three point lead. The Cavaliers would come out in the second half and both teams would post 27 points in the third period and Houston still held a three point lead going into the fourth.
That is when we saw the Cavaliers pour it on. Cleveland outscored the Rockets in the fourth quarter by 14 points getting their third win in a row 118-107 over the Houston Rockets last night. Antawn Jamison lead the Cavaliers in scoring with 28 and Kyrie Irving put in his typical 21 points. The Cavaliers got some help from Ramon Sessions who put in 15 points and Samardo Samuels had 11 points and played some tough defense too.
It is great to see the Cavaliers playing this kind of Basketball lately. I am sure this young team is turning some heads.
