Here are the highlights from tonight’s loss
The Cavaliers were able to rest their starters in the 4th as they cruised to an easy 109-95 victory. The Wolves put up a bit of a fight in the beginning; they trailed by one after the 1st. Minnesota was paced by Corey Brewer’s 22 points and Kevin Love’s double-double (20 points, 10 rebounds). The Cavs were paced by J.J. Hickson’s 23 points and Lebron James’s double-double (12 points, 11 assists). It was encouraging to see a better performance from Minnesota, but in reality they were still beaten badly considering (as I stated before) the Cavs rested their starters for the final 12 minutes. Al Jefferson continued his disappointing play. His three bad games have come on the heels of growing trade rumors involving Big Al. He issued a statement saying they don’t bother him at all but you have to wonder if it really is weighing on his mind.
