The Cleveland Cavaliers who were in danger of losing their tenth in a row tonight found a way to come back in the fourth quarter without their Head Coach Byron Scott who was ejected with a double technical beat the Toronto Raptors tonight, a team that has had Cleveland’s number all season long. The Raptors beat Cleveland in three previous meetings.
Tonight Cleveland had to dig deep not only to avoid a double digit losing streak for the first time this season, they also beat a team they couldn’t win against in three meetings. Tonight the Cavaliers had to play nearly three quarters without their head coach as he was ejected in the second quarter. The Cavaliers were without their number one pick Kyrie Irving who is out with a sprain to his right shoulder. The Cavaliers would see the veteran Antawn Jamison, score 25 points to help the Cavaliers avoid losing ten straight.
Lester Hudson, who came off the Cavs bench came up big stepping it up with 23 points and Samardo Samuels, would be the only other Cavaliers player with double digits in scoring with 10 points. Hey maybe Byron Scott should get thrown out the rest of the season if this is what it takes to get a Cavaliers Victory. 84-80 Cavs
