A quick one while you're away, from last night's tilt between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks, which some of you (whose names rhyme with "Flan Flevine") might have missed while traveling from Point A to Point B ...
During the second quarter, with the Bucks up by four, Brandon Jennings'(notes) driving layup gets sent back at the rim by everyone's favorite floppy-haired defensive stalwart, Anderson Varejao(notes). Andy's block keys the fast break, with Daniel Gibson(notes) getting out ahead and unleashing a skyscraping alley, which Jamario Moon(notes) summarily oops with a right-handed flush:
"Two helpings of stuffing." Get it? We here at BDL are nothing if not clever (especially on holiday).
With the score knotted at 81 and the clock winding down, Williams took the inbounds pass and gave the fans of Cleveland something to be thankful for:
Bang. Williams led all scorers with 25 points in the 83-81 win, which stopped a three-game losing streak for the Cavs (now 6-8) and continued a four-game skid for the Bucks (5-9).
So, happy Thanksgiving, Cleveland. And don't fret too much, Milwaukee — no one's going to look sideways at you if you take another helping of mashed potatoes. They don't call it "comfort food" for nothing, right?
