Cavaliers Rally To Beat Grizzlies 92-86

 

Mo Williams scored 25 points, dished out 12 assists and pulled down five rebounds, as the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a slow start to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies, 92-86, at Quicken Loans Arena.

J.J. Hickson added 16 points and five boards for the Cavaliers, who have won two of three since a three-game skid. Joey Graham chipped in with 12 points.

In a game that saw several ups and downs, the Cavaliers trailed early on by as many as 16, but rallied to trail 51-45 at halftime.  The Wine and Gold then used a 16-0 run in the 3rd quarter to build a 12-point lead of their own.  The Cavs led by 8 heading into the 4th.

Relying on defense in the 4th quarter, the Cavaliers started the 4th quarter 0-13 from the floor before J.J. Hickson, wearing some snazzy sneaks, scored with 3:04 to go.  The Cavs trailed by as many as 3 points in the 4th quarter, but strong play from Hickson - and Mo Williams - helped the Cavs put the Grizzlies away.
