Great win! I have to admit that AV played a great game last night! He played within himself on offense and was back to his old ways on defense.

Gotta win tomorrow night!

Go Cavs!

Great game. Nice win for the Cavs. Hopefully, they will steal one Wednesday in Boston. GO CAVS !!!

The question of the day is why didn't Gloria James get arrested for what she did by attacking the Boston players who ended in the stands last night? She must have been drunk or high as a skunk to do that.

Frankly, if it wasn't for the two games in Boston this would be the Cavs series to lose. Boston is astonishing beatable. Brown finally figured out something on offense (what the fans, Barkley, the sportswriters, Smith et al have been saying for two years). The defense has been excellent. And the Cavs have lots of bodies to throw at you. AV was excellent on D. I over rated Rondo and Garnett.

I thought the Cavs had too many poor possessions down the stretch but their D saved them every time. I still think Damon Jones is a secret weapon. I think they can win any game if it is close in the last few minutes. But losing that first game may haunt the team in the end.

Was that her under the basket? Did I see James yelling at her? Didn't notice the incident.

Gloria was justifiably defending her son, who had been mugged in front of her.

You can rest assured that she will not be giving Garnett any of HER rings anytime soon!

now everyone is on the wagon. After we were down 0-2 there was nothing but haters. It is a new series and Lebron still hasn't played a great game. Remember game 5 last year in Detroit!

Good win, way to gut this one out CAVS! Boobie should be aggressive more. He can get to the hoop and break down Rondo is he chooses too. In that case, LJ needs to take the ball to the hoop more. He is pulling up one dribble short of throwing it home. Maybe that dunk at the end will spur him on next game.

Great hustle by all Cavs players picking up loose balls towards the end of the game.. They clearly showed they wanted it more.

Still waiting to see some semblance of an offensive game plan that can get lebron involved on the move. When they rotated the ball last night they got wide open shots at the rim. Maybe that might be a glimmer of what we hope is to come.

Old Man Grump, I agree with you on Gloria, they should of ejected her from the arena, but we know that was not going to happen.

Keep up the good work Cavs! Mike Brown, devise some better plays coming out of a time out or beginning of a quarter Please!

Yeah that was it. The PD covered it. That has to be more embarrassing than his air balls. She needs to be in a more dignified spot in the stands and away from the players. I hated that when my mom showed up for my big games, with a championship on the line, and made a spectacle out of herself, back in third grade. Many it was second grade. Anyway I hated it.

Arrested or ejected - NO WAY - look at the replay again - heckling or yelling at other players - YES - Garnett put his arm around her she ran her mouth - period. I don't condone her actions and her behavior at times is erratic at best but last night is being overblown by ESPN.

Garnett is always saying that kind of crap. Every time he makes a play. But I have to say that I saw LeBron a couple of times last night drop an F bomb that was caught by cameras!!

If you can't stand the heat--get the h--- out of the kitchen--what a waste of humanity--that woman has absolutely no class at all. Of course, she didn't raise her son to be much better either--at least 2 kids out of wedlock--who knows how many more?? Lebron is not the only player on that team--give some credit to the other guys--they play as hard as he does--but who gets all the glory. Oh, and by the way--during the interview on Sunday, with his son by his side, that kid needs to learn some manners and daddy should have corrected him (even if it would have shown up on camera.)

Great win, the rest of the team is finally stepping up, but what the hell is going on with James? I've never seen him look so flat. I love the guy, but in this series he's not looking like himself. It's the playoffs buddy, time to rise up.

Yeah, I just thought it was awesome that TNT would show it in slow motion while they talk about the amazing heart of KG.

Two cents from another LeBron hater. Probably a Steelers fan to boot. Too bad all the children of the world can't be perfect like yours.

Why won't TNT show any replays of fouls? I can hear the fans reacting to the jumbo tron when the guy is stepping up to the line, but you never see the replay on the tube.

Scoop,

Informative, insightful gamer. The question remains, is good defense and inconsistent offense enough to get the Cavs a win in Boston?
