The Cleveland Cavaliers are finally getting it. They are getting it without the help of their star player Kyrie Irving. Irving is out with an injured knee and Dion Waiters has really stepped it up in the last few games. The Cavs beat the Toronto Raptors last night 103-92 and Waiters scored 23 points while doing it. The Cavaliers have won 4 out of their last 5 games. They only loss came in Miami in the last 5, they should have won the game but they had a break down in the defense in the last-minute of the Miami game.
The team gave LeBron James and the Heat all they could handle in the game and they scored 105 points on the night.. The Cleveland Cavaliers move to 20 wins on the season with the win over the Raptors last night. Cleveland is really making a run at winning and if they can continue to play the kind of basketball they are playing now, when Kyrie returns they should be even better. You have to really respect the things Waiters is doing in Irving’s absence. This rookie is on fire and he cannot be stopped. He was a great draft pick and is just coming into his own in the NBA.
The team has the night off tonight and play the L.A. Clippers tomorrow night at the Q. This will be a great test to see how they do against a team that play tough basketball. Irving is day to day and could be back to help in the game Friday night.
