Cleveland Cavaliers at Oklahoma City Thunder, March 9, 2012: Fan Preview
Coming off a final second win over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, the Cavaliers are certainly on a high note. Antawn Jamison continued to do well scoring 33 points and nine boards while rookie point guard Kyrie Irving delivered a driving layup in the final seconds of the game to win it.
"Kyrie down the stretch, it speaks for itself," Jamison said. "He single-handedly won the game for us."
Unfortunately for the Cavaliers they will be traveling to face a team that has lost just one game on their home court this season. While a win here will not be impossible, they will simply need to bring their "A" game and then some. I probably should not mention the Thunder have also won nine of their last 10 contests.
For fans of the Cavaliers, it would be realistic to hope for an entertaining game at best with very few errors and some big plays. Who knows? Maybe they can sneak away with a win.
