The Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder on the second night of a back to back. Kyrie Irving wanted to win, so they won.
THAT WAS INSANE.
The Cleveland Cavaliers were coming off a blowout loss at the Detroit Pistons. This was the second night of a back to back. They were facing that reigning Western Conference champions. And they took down the Oklahoma City Thunder, 115-110.
Marreese Speights carried the Cavs for the first half of the fourth quarter. He was amazing. He hit midrange jumpers from all over the court and threw down a thunderous (no pun intended) dunk. The bench unit with Speights, Wayne Ellington, and C.J. Miles really gave the Cavs a huge surge in the fourth quarter....
AND THEN KYRIE IRVING HAPPENED.
