Cavs Battle Back, Beat Bulls in Las Vegas Thriller, 81-80

The Cleveland Cavaliers, behind 21 points from J.J. Hickson and 20 from Pooh Jeter, including a game-winning three to go along with seven assists -  leading the Cavs in dishes for the third straight game - defeated the Chicago Bulls tonight in Las Vegas, after trailing by 17 points in the second quarter, to remain unbeaten in Summer League play at 3-0 with two games remaining.  J.J. has also been high scorer in all three games for Cleveland.

Christian Eyenga added ten for the wine-and-gold. along with 6 rebounds, while Danny Green led the way with seven boards.

The Cavs play Miami tomorrow.  Although the game will not include LeBron James, I think that it is fair to say that, of the five scheduled games that Cleveland faced this summer, the Heat game will be the one the Cavs most desperately want to win.  We shall see.

The Summer League wraps up on Sunday when Cleveland will take on the Milwaukee Bucks.
