Spotlights on high, the crowd cheering for a solid minute after the game action had ended. Players smiling and joking like never before. Ticker tape and glitter streaming down on everything, including the crowd. They finally did it! The Cleveland Cavaliers...won their ninth game of the season? Follow after the jump for the strangest game I have ever witnessed in an NBA arena.
However, I also can firmly support the belief that a team who manages to win three games in three months probably just is not very good. Tonight, like many other nights during the streak, it was in doubt the entire night as to whether the Cavs were going to put up a W before they went to bed. Luck gave and took all night:
It was definitely awkward at best to see both the crowd and the Cavaliers' players celebrating like they had just won the NBA Finals, but we'll see what happens now. Hickson was an absolute monster and perhaps the light switch has permanently gone off for him. They now get to face a Washington Wizards team that has been as bad on the road as they've been in general, and who knows what happens after that. But for one night, the Cavs got to feel like champions.
